What is the most accurate summary of how Scout and Jem's ideas differ, with regards to what "kinds" of people there are in Maycomb?
Scout views the people of Maycomb more idealistically than Jem, mainly because she is too young, naïve, and inexperienced to know any better at that stage in her life.
Jem views the people of the Maycomb as more united than Scout, mostly because he is looking at people's inner qualities and common humanity as determining their "kind."
Scout views the people of Maycomb more cynically than Jem, presumably because she has been influenced by Dill, who insists that he's not cynical but just tells the truth.
Scout views the people of Maycomb more homogenously than Jem, essentially because she has taken heed of what Atticus has said to her and Jem on the subject.
Jem views the people of Maycomb as more fragmented than Scout, partially because he is taking people's actions and external qualities as defining features of their "kind."
