answers. great answers alright well we'll get this one wrong only if we
decide we're too busy to bother reading the passage. like seriously let's take a
look at the paragraph in which the word pine appears. alright so the story is
that mrs. thrale is trying to set Fannie up with a bunch of guys. when asked
whether she digs one more than the other Fanny says she likes one guy better but
she's not gonna pine for either one but what is pine mean? well it's not too hard
to figure out since most of these options make zero sense in context. for
example what it makes sense for Fanny to randomly start talking about pineapples
or trees when asked which guys she prefers well no it would not. but we'll
Nix a and B right off the bat. if Fanny did do this mrs. thrale would probably [two women sit at a table]
think she's more fit for the loony bin and marriage. choice B is a little less
random because a person's health can take a dip when pining. still this
doesn't work in the context of the passage. there's nothing to make us think
that Fanny is saying she won't let her health fail for either of these men. well
hopefully she'll stay healthy either way. the correct answer is C - pine means to
yearn for something like you want it but can't have it.
so Fanny is not gonna stay up all night thinking about either of these suitors.
we're glad to hear she's not into that Crutchley guy, you know Crutchely is a [woman sleeps in bed]
supervillain alias if we've ever heard one.
