Jane and Psalms

JNEYR-BOLJYU

When Jane speaks to Mr. Brocklehurst she claims that "Psalms are not interesting." Which of the following quotations from Jane reveal the irony of the statement she made about Psalms?

A

"Be not far from me, for trouble is near: there is none to help."

B

"I have hardly had time yet to enjoy a sense of tranquillity, much less to grow impatient under one of loneliness."

C

"A penny cannot feed me, and I have no strength to go farther. Don't shut the door: oh, don't, for God's sake!"

D

"I don't care about it, mother; you may please yourself: but I ought to warn you, I have no faith."

E

"I don't understand enigmas. I never could guess a riddle in my life."
