Which option makes a valid criticism of Miss Maudie's explanation of why the townspeople leave all their "dirty work" to Atticus?
The complimentary thoughts she ascribes to the townspeople are entirely fictitious.
She is just trying to humor Aunt Alexandra.
The words she chooses are not appropriate to the situation described.
Regardless of the veracity of her statement, it functions as an excuse for inaction.
None of the townspeople have done anything to show they respect Atticus.
