Col. Grangerford

HUCKFN-BCLS1V

Which of the line of text below LEAST accurately characterizes how Huck sees Col. Grangerford?

A

"Col. Grangerford was very tall and very slim, and had a darkish-paly complexion, not a sign of red in it anywheres; he was clean-shaved every morning, all over his thin face, and he had the thinnest kind of lips, and the thinnest kind of nostrils, and a high nose, and heavy eyebrows, and the blackest kind of eyes, sunk so deep back that they seemed like they was looking out of caverns at you, as you may say."

B

"There warn't no frivolishness about him, not a bit, and he warn't ever loud. He was as kind as he could be- you could feel that, you know, and so you had confidence."

C

"Sometimes he smiled, and it was good to see; but when he straightened himself up like a liberty-pole, and the lightning begun to flicker out from under his eyebrows you wanted to climb a tree first, and find out what the matter was afterwards."

D

"He didn't ever have to tell anybody to mind their manners- everybody was always good mannered where he was."

E

"When he turned into a cloud-bank it was awful dark for a half a minute and that was enough; there wouldn't nothing go wrong again for a week."
