So... how does the narrator feel about this... spirited prediction?
Does he actually not go into that much detail in the intro since that's what the whole
book is about?
Nah, there's no indication in this passage that the book is going to be about...
...ghost whispering. Next... Could it that the narrator finds the prediction
No again. Maybe the narrator just says that he's never
seen a ghost and has no interest in ever seeing one.
Bingo. It might not be a great idea for a call in business, but it definitely describes
the narrator's attitude. Before we make our final decision, let's
take a look at D.
Does the narrator scoff at the primitive superstition that connected his birth with the supernatural?
Nope, not only is that a bad idea for a call in business, it's also the wrong answer.
The narrator might poke fun at superstitious people a little bit, but he doesn't scoff at them.
The answer is C.
As in, "Copperfield, baby."
