Many people here at Shmoop actually still thinks this is true.
We could argue that choice (D) is the... most wrong of the wrong answers.
Freud was all about dream analysis, so we highly doubt he would say it's totally untrue.
Choice (C) might actually be the wrong-est of the wrong answers.
This was Freud's whole thing. Others might not buy into it, but nobody's been able to disprove it.
Answer (A) doesn't seem totally farfetched--especially coming from Freud, who brought us such gems
as the Oedipus Complex.
However, the passage doesn't mention this at all, so (A) can be eliminated.
Choice (B) is the way to go. By "mythological hypothesis," Freud is referring to the idea
that dreams come from some divine entity.
