Read the excerpt from "The Lady Maid's Bell."
But that wasn’t the only queer thing in the house. The very next day I found out that Mrs. Brympton had no nurse; and then I asked Agnes about the woman I had seen in the passage the afternoon before.

A.The narrator feels inadequate when she reports seeing a supernatural being and nobody believes her.
B.The narrator feels like she lacks control of her own fate when her superiors refuse to answer her questions.
C.The narrator is dismissed by her superiors when she asks questions about a occurrence that may have been supernatural.
D.The narrator fears that she may be doomed when she witnesses a strange woman walking around the home.
not 100% sure....I want to say C....supernatural is definitely an element of gothic .
