The phrase "magnanimous scorn" in the statement "he [Tom] insisted [that Daisy ride with Gatsby] with magnanimous scorn most likely means

1. courageously noble in mind and heart
2. generous in forgiving even those who are not worthy
3. selfish and disdainful
4. understanding and tolerant
5. generous with contempt

I was thinking if it's either 4 or 5 because i know magnanimous scorn means generous, therefore, he understand daisy somehow

    The word "scorn" doesn't fit in number 4. It must be 5.
