Frodo was the only one present who had said nothing. For some time he had sat silent beside Bilbo's empty chair, and ignored all remarks and questions. He had enjoyed the joke, of course, even though he had been in the know. He had difficulty in keeping from laughter at the indignant surprise of the guests. But at the same time he felt deeply troubled: he realized suddenly that he loved the old hobbit dearly. Most of the guests went on eating and drinking and discussing Bilbo Baggins' oddities, past and present; but the Sackville-Bagginses had already departed in wrath. Frodo did not want to have any more to do with the party. -The Fellowship of the Ring, J. R.R.

How is Frodo characterized in the passage?

as funny and outgoing

as reserved and thoughtful

as angry and bitter

As reserved and thoughtful

Let’s use the process of elimination. He is not funny and outgoing + angry and bitter + jealous and rude. Because of one word, he was silent and ignored all remarks and questions. This leads me to believe that he is reserved and thoughtful.
