Mayella's Silence

TKAM-3EHOYK

Why doesn't Mayella answer Atticus' "list" of questions?

A

She is furiously upset with Atticus, and she is showing her disdain by refusing to cooperate.

B

She is genuinely confused, and she cannot understand everything that he is asking her.

C

She is emotionally rattled, and she probably knows that if she answered her story would unravel.

D

She is unfairly browbeaten by Atticus' rapid-fire succession of questions.

E

She is silently objecting to the way she has been treated by the court proceedings.
