Which lines are characteristic of an elegy?

A.(They came like shamefaced jackals, their shields / In their hands, to the place where the prince lay dead, / And waited for Wiglaf to speak.)

B.(Too few of his warriors remembered / To come, when our lord faced death, alone.)

C. (And then twelve of the bravest Geats / Rode their horses around the tower, / Telling their sorrow, telling stories / Of their dead king and his greatness, his glory...)

D.(Then that brave king gave his golden / Necklace from around his throat to Wiglaf, / Gave him his gold-covered helmet, and his rings, / And his mail shirt, and ordered him to use them well...)

I'm thinking the answer is B. Thanks for the help.
