Identify and Interpret Details
The "forth" helps us to remember the straightforward part, and the "right" helps us to remember
that the person is always on the moral side of things.
None of this describes our narrator, however, who is up to no good. (D) is easy to do away with.
The narrator definitely thinks his actions are "righteous," or morally justifiable,
but most people would agree that his views on revenge aren't cool.
(A) is out of the running. (C) is tricky because the narrator is definitely
a cultured man. The highfalutin language he uses and his knowledge of wine show that he's
an educated and knowledgeable guy.
However, his vengeful actions show us that there's a lot more to him than his knowledge
of culture. We can cross out (C).
(B) is the correct answer. "Devious" sounds like "devilish," and our narrator is certainly
both. He's underhanded, manipulative, and just plain bad.
Kinda wish he hadn't heard us say all that though.
