I lost my other post but I have another question. Thank you.
Who or what is most likely the grandmother's "afflictionâ€ť?
A. worry
B. arthritis
C. her granddaughter
D. her daughter-in-law
--
I used to feel a certain prick of pain when I saw Grandmother retire alone to her room for long hours after being defeated in an argument with Mother. I would sometimes hear her talking bitterly to herself, or I would see her monotonously shaking her head in silence, as though she were rehearsing the book of her long life, reviewing the days of her past, when she was the unchallenged mistress of the house, with the last word. I would often see her vent the force of her resentment on her thousand-bead rosary as her nervous fingers told its beads and she repeated the prayer to herself:

"Oh merciful God, remove this affliction!"

I am thinking A or C. Thank you.
