Which of the following is the definition for the underlined word in the sentence above?
The context of the sentence would suggest that Irmengard views her Aunt Fredericka’s beliefs to be outdated. Answer choice confusing, as there is nothing in the sentence to suggest that Irmengard does not understand what her great-aunt means. Answer choice eager does not fit the context, since Aunt Fredericka appears to disapprove of rather than be eager about dating and relationships. While Aunt Fredericka might be hostile to some elements of dating and relationships, the sentence does not indicate that she is hostile to the activities altogether.
