would rank if we measured it with Shmoop's Sad-o-meter.
The passage points to the huge change that marked Cobain in two short years:
...specifically, the pressure of representing an entire generation caused his state of mind
to shift from "exhilaration" to "despondency and suicide."
The good news for us is that it's easy to eliminate most of these answer choices.
"Low expectations," "lack of reaction," "difficulty," and "annihilation" aren't
exhilarating in any way at all...
So we can get all of these choices out of our lives before they bring us down any more.
"High level of energy" totally fits with exhilaration, though, making (E) the only
answer choice that works.
If questions like this keep coming at us, we'll need to seriously consider getting
the Sad-o-meter insured.
