Reading Question for Thursday, December 18th, 2014

PROSE FICTION: This passage is adapted from Elizabeth Bishop’s
short story "The Housekeeper" (©1984 by Alice Methfessel).

Considering the events of the entire passage, it is most reasonable to infer that Mrs. Sennett calls the children bad (line 92) because she:

F. is bothered by the noise they are making.
G. doesn’t like them hanging on her skirt.
H. doesn’t want to reveal her affection for them.
J. is angry that they never do what she tells them.
