  • The correct answer is letter A, the information from the wireless message was extraordinarily important. Based from the non-verbal cues given by the character who was reading the message, it seemed that the matter was very important and that action should be made quickly.
  • Answer: A. Extraordinarily important.

    Explanation: Based on the information presented in the excerpt, we can infer that the information in the wireless message was extraordinarily important, because all the signs the characters give each other without even saying a word, like that the twitching of "Blinker's" eyes became more pronounced as he was reading the message and also the seriousness of de Grey while he delivered the message.
