Read the excerpt from chapter 5 of the adventures of huckleberry finn. i reckoned i was scared now, too; but in a minute i see i was mistaken--that is, after the first jolt, as you may say, when my breath sort of hitched, he being so unexpected; but right away after i see i warn't scared of him worth bothring about. what does the phrase “i warn't scared of him worth bothring” illustrate about huck’s character? that he doesn’t take other people seriously that he is easily frightened by others that he has a very high opinion of his father that he is a strong judge of character
Even though he is young, Huck knows that his father is just a drunk loser, who would milk him out for money to buy alcohol. Huck is a troubled child who is used to mischief, so he has learned to tell real danger from mere annoyance. His father's behavior does frighten him at first, but it only takes a moment for him to realize that there is no reason to be afraid.
answer is :
I think that what that phrase illustrates about Huck's character in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is that he is easily frightened by others. The correct answer would be the second one.
The excerpt doesn't mention his father or the relationship between them, so we can't say that the sentence refers to Huck's father, but we can understand by reading it that Huck is scared "now, too;" so it means that fear is a common feeling for him, but that "after the first jolt", he wasn't scared of him. So this situation would be an exception to the rule, and we could say Huck is easily frightened in general, and this characteristic of him shapes his personality.
the answer is indeed D.
