Different Kinds of Folks

TKAM-GDBJST

What is the most accurate summary of how Scout and Jem's ideas differ, with regards to what "kinds" of people there are in Maycomb?

A

Scout views the people of Maycomb more idealistically than Jem, mainly because she is too young, naïve, and inexperienced to know any better at that stage in her life.

B

Jem views the people of the Maycomb as more united than Scout, mostly because he is looking at people's inner qualities and common humanity as determining their "kind."

C

Scout views the people of Maycomb more cynically than Jem, presumably because she has been influenced by Dill, who insists that he's not cynical but just tells the truth.

D

Scout views the people of Maycomb more homogenously than Jem, essentially because she has taken heed of what Atticus has said to her and Jem on the subject.

E

Jem views the people of Maycomb as more fragmented than Scout, partially because he is taking people's actions and external qualities as defining features of their "kind."
