GATSBY-PEZ2ET

Which quote best demonstrates that Gatsby and Daisy are both vain individuals who rely on the impressions of others to define them?

A

“He’s dead now. He used to be my best friend years ago.”

B

"I tried to go then, but they wouldn’t hear of it; perhaps my presence made them feel more satisfactorily alone."

C

"Possibly it had occurred to him that the colossal significance of that light had now vanished forever. Compared to the great distance that had separated him from Daisy it had seemed very near to her, almost touching her. "

D

"As I went over to say good-by I saw that the expression of bewilderment had come back into Gatsby’s face, as though a faint doubt had occurred to him as to the quality of his present happiness. "

E

" Sometimes, too, he stared around at his possessions in a dazed way, as though in her actual and astounding presence none of it was any longer real."
