Which of the following communicates Elie's frustration and rebellion in the following passage describing the evening before Rosh Hashanah?

What are You, my God? I thought angrily. How do You compare to this stricken mass gathered to affirm to You their faith, their anger, their defiance? What does Your grandeur mean, Master of the Universe, in the face of all this cowardice, this decay, and this misery? Why do you go on troubling these poor people's wounded minds, their ailing bodies?

Choose ALL that apply.


The diction "angrily" and "troubling"


The irony that "Master of the Universe" is allowing His people to be "wounded" and "ailing"


The fact that the Jews are refusing to celebrate Rosh Hashanah


The repeated questions beginning the "What," "How," and "Why"


The implication the "poor" Jews have lost all their possessions
