  • The correct answer is d.
  • Answer:

    D. The Sharpe family's home was always filled with cheer and laughter. But their neighbor, Mr. Andrews, preferred silence.

    Explanation:

    Indirect characterization is a tool for an author which includes actions, speech, appearances, etc. to unveil the personality and thoughts of certain characters. This definition is best exemplified in the fourth option as it hints towards the introvert, gloomy and distressful nature of Mr. Andrews' home contrary to the Sharpe family's. The other option very clearly and precisely displays the character traits while the last option is indicative and suggestive in tone about the nature of Mr. Andrews' home. Thus, the correct one would be D.
