Seeing Mrs. Reed


Which of the following statements best represents Jane's feelings towards Mrs. Reed when the pair are reunited?


"It is a happy thing that time quells the longings of vengeance and hushes the promptings of rage and aversion."


"Again she regarded me so icily, I felt at once that her opinion of me, her feeling towards me, was unchanged and unchangeable."


"I looked into a certain corner near, half-expecting to see the slim outline of a once dreaded switch which used to lurk there, waiting to leap out imp-like and lace my quivering palm or shrinking neck."


"The well-known face was there: stern, relentless as ever, there was that peculiar eye which nothing could melt, and the somewhat raised, imperious, despotic eyebrow."


"To believe me good would give her no generous pleasure: only a sense of mortification."
