Scout's Inner Conflict

TKAM-JUJGM2

Which of the following lines from the text, in isolation, best illustrates how Scout struggles to make up her mind about which source of information to believe about Mr. Dolphus Raymond - the prohibitions she's received from others or the direct experiences she herself has gathered through personal interactions?

A

"As Mr. Dolphus Raymond was an evil man I accepted his invitation reluctantly, but I followed Dill."

B

"Somehow, I didn’t think Atticus would like it if we became friendly with Mr. Raymond, and I knew Aunt Alexandra wouldn’t."

C

"I had a feeling that I shouldn’t be here listening to this sinful man who had mixed children and didn’t care who knew it, but he was fascinating."

D

"I liked his smell: it was of leather, horses, cottonseed. He wore the only English riding boots I had ever seen."

E

"'Hee hee,' said Mr. Raymond, evidently taking delight in corrupting a child. 'Dill, you watch out, now,' I warned."
