Well, lines 2-3 of Passage 2 tell us that "She died penniless in a welfare home,"
so yeah, Hurston definitely had some financial problems.
Passage 1 is all about the critical reception of Hurston's writing,
and Passage 2 references it as well.
Choice (C) has nothing to fear from the hounds.
Lines 4-6 tell us that Hurston's career was brought back to life by Alice Walker years
and years after Hurston's death.
Choice (D) is safe for now.
Both passages talk about Hurston's individualistic approach to writing. Choice (E) isn't even
worth a sniff from our pack.
Since neither passage mentions Hurston's marriage—or marriages, to be accurate—(A) is the lying
culprit we've been hunting for.
We hope it isn't allergic to dogs.
