    It DOES make sense because "voting by name in this society, not acreage" means that reputation means more than money. Acreage meaning land and therefore wealth. The name referring to the name being "good" or not in the village which is a major theme in this book, and if you remember Abigail was arguing that her name was "good" in the village.

    Definitely A. She was very persistant in saying that seven of her children died as children and the only one alive was sick. She said many times that she believes that unnatural causes were the reasons for her children's deaths and sought revenge.
