CATCHR-XAEKFE

A

It is contradicting because no one ever wants to be considered a liar.

B

It is contradicting because the first portion of the quote is a positive outlook on a behavioral quality; the second half of the quote is a negative outlook.

C

The two adjectives, terrific and terrible, begin with the same letter showing connotation.

D

Because the statement is parallel and balanced, there is no contradiction.

E

There is no contradiction in the statement because Holden is speaking about himself.
