Thanks for the question! So we’re asked here to find one of the differences between The Awakening and the work of the New Women. Where is this mentioned? In the last paragraph, and so that’s where we should go. The movement known as the New Women is introduced at the beginning of the last paragraph and its ideas are fleshed out throughout; what is key for our purposes is that they experimented with impressionistic methods, which is mentioned on lines 50-51. Now, as for The Awakening, we can see how it’s compared to this movement in the next sentence, which is the last sentence of the last paragraph. We’re told that Chopin embraces this impressionistic approach more fully; in other words, she uses it more, and this is what (C) tells us: The Awakening employed impressionism more consistently throughout than the work of the New Women, who were merely experimenting with it.
