All the Marks of Sunday School

HUCKFN-ZRDKGN

At the very end of Chapter 3 Huck attempts Tom's advice of rubbing an old tin lamp with an iron ring. But, after a while of rubbing and no genie, he thinks to himself, "I judged that all that stuff was only just one of Tom Sawyer's lies. I reckoned he believed in the A-rabs and the elephants, but as for me I think different. It had all the marks of a Sunday school."

Why does Huck think this?

A

Huck has lost faith in Tom Sawyer's word.

B

Miss Watson has taught Huck to not trust liars.

C

Huck thinks that some teaching from Sunday school will give him the answer to how to unlock the genie.

D

Huck has equated big stories and promises with no results to religion, especially after his time with Miss Watson.

E

Huck's feelings are hurt that he believed in Tom's fantasy, but it was a waste of his time.
