  • A. The man is right to press on.
  • B. The dog is unfazed by the cold.
  • C. The man is jealous of the dog.
  • D. The dog is wiser than the man.

Correct Answer: D


D is correct. As stated in lines 32-33, "The animal was depressed by the tremendous cold. It knew that it was no time for travelling. Its instinct told it a truer tale than was told to the man by the man’s judgment." These statements clearly support choice D.
