Daisy says, when she cries over Gatsby’s shirts, that she is “sad because she’s never seen such – such beautiful shirts before.” The dash and repetition in this line suggest that she is not telling the truth.

What is most likely the reason Daisy is crying?


She knows she will break Gatsby’s heart when she returns to her husband.


There is no other reason; Daisy is very impressed by Gatsby’s shirts.


Daisy is worried about how Gatsby has earned his money, and is afraid he’ll be hurt.


Daisy is frustrated because she will never own clothes as beautiful as Gatsby’s shirts.


She realizes Gatsby is now a very wealthy man, as wealthy as the man she married.
