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. Agnes said she had seen no one, and I saw that she thought I was dreaming. To be sure, it was dusk when we went down the passage, and she had excused herself for not bringing a light; but I had seen the woman plain enough to know her again if we should meet. I decided that she must have been a friend of the cook’s, or of one of the other women

    servants: perhaps she had come down from town for a night’s visit, and the servants wanted it kept secret. Some ladies are very stiff about having their servants’ friends in the house overnight. At any rate, I made up my mind to ask no more questions. Which statement describes a gothic element in this excerpt that reflects a social attitude of Wharton’s time? 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 . And I guess a " social attitude " would be her superiors dismissing her like she was a nobody and didn't matter. However, I have not read this story...so I am not really sure.
