Happy to help.
The question says, "It can be inferred that both authors would be most
likely to regard which one of the following as exemplifying Catherâ€™s
In the passage, both of the authors discuss Cather's impressionistic
writing style, so we are looking for an answer choice that
demonstrates this impressionistic style. From the passage, we know
that Cather's impressionistic style is bold, stylized, simple, and is
also used to illustrate a bigger truth about a character. These are
the hallmarks of his style, and these are the things we're looking for
in the answer choice we select. We don't want too much detail, nor do
we want answers that tell us about the thoughts of the character
because Cather did not do this in his impressionistic style.
(C) says, "A description of a slightly quivering drink in the hand of
a character at a dinner party is used to suggest that the character is
(C) describes a subtle but important detail ("slightly quivering drink
in the hand") that is presenting us the phenomenon itself (line 13),
and this small but very important detail is used to show us the truth
of the character being described. This detail tells us that the
character is really timid. The shaking hand suggests that the
character is timid, and this is spot on with Cather's impressionistic
technique. As a result, it matches up well with what Cather's
impressionistic technique is, so this is the correct answer choice.
Does this make sense? Let us know if you have any more questions!

Thank you, that was a very helpful review! As for A, why was that choice incorrect?
