Jem's New Theory About Boo


Jem's new theory on Boo Radley, put forth by him in Chapter 23, relies upon which of the following assumptions?


Boo has many reasons for staying inside the Radley home, with no one, simple explanation for his hiding out.


Boo has had experiences that have left him as disillusioned and disgusted as people as Jem has.


Boo has had the opportunity to meet and mix with many people of Maycomb and does not like any of them.


Boo does not like being a recluse, but he may prefer it over having to perform the basic duties required by a public life.


Boo enjoys interacting only with children because they are more innocent and good than most adults.
