In Act III, Scene I, Bennie is particularly bitter, but Ruth defends Walter. What does Ruth say?
Is this right- She says, "You didn't say nothing bad to him did you?"

    Mama tells Ruth that she thinks Walter has finally become a man by standing up to Mr. Lindner. Ruth agrees and is noticeably proud of her husband.

    I am wondering then why it's asked this way, "BENEATHA is particularly bitter, BUT Ruth defends Walter. What does Ruth SAY?"

    Why does the question mention Bennie at all? And it asks, "What does Ruth SAY?" She only says, "Yes, Lena," when agreeing to Lena about Walter becoming a man. Is this really DEFENSIVE?
