III. He views it as futile and anachronistic.
And here are the potential answers...
These Roman numeral questions are nice, because we really only have to check out THREE choices rather than FIVE.
For those who don't count arithmetic as one of their strong suits... three is less than
five. You can double-check on your fingers if you're not buying it.
Okay, first up -- "He views it as suspect and unpatriotic."
Does this describe Amory's view of pacifism?
They're trying to trip us up here, because yeah -- he does express some suspicion in
lines 29 through 34...
...but the unpatriotic part? No, nothing to support it... which makes Roman numeral one...false.
Next -- "He views it as exemplifying Burne's "primal honesty."
"Primal honesty" is in quotes, which means we can expect that exact phrase to appear
somewhere in the passage...
...once we finally track it down -- they put it at the very end of the passage, sneaky
devils -- we can see evidence that, yes indeedy, this tells us something about Amory's view of pacifism.
So numero dos appears to be true... What about the third one -- "He views it as
futile and anachronistic?"
Line 44 spells things out for us here... yeah, Amory describes pacifism as futile...
And what about "anachronistic?" What, is he afraid of spiders or something?
Actually, anachronistic has to do with something that doesn't quite fit with its time...
...much like Amory describes pacifism in lines 23 to 24.
So Two and Three are true, making the correct option... letter B.
Three cheers for Roman numerals.
