C is a deceptive choice, because we do mention that migration may have had some effect. However, this is proposed as a potential influence and we don't actually know whether there was any influence at all, and if so, what it did.

D is the correct answer because we know that because Jewett believed that literary art was an end in itself, she created a less didactic and more secular novel, devoid of children.
