Portia, Brutus' wife, is concerned about her husband. She does not understand why he will not tell her what is bothering him.

Which of the following quotes is NOT a reason she gives Brutus that he should be able to trust her with his darkest secrets?

A

upon my knees
I charm you, by once commended beauty,
By all your vows of love (2.1.279-281)

B

You have some sick offense within your mind,
Which by the right and virtue of my place
I ought to know of (2.1.276-278)

C

Within the bond of marriage, tell me, Brutus,
Is it expected I should know no secrets
That appertain to you? (2.1.289-291)

D

Dwell I but in the suburbs
of good pleasure? If it be no more,
Portia is Brutus' harlot, not his wife. (2.1.295-296)

E

A woman well reputed, Cato's daughter.
Think you I am no stronger than my sex, (2.1.304-305)
