Which detail from the text best supports the claim that Robinson Crusoe survives on the island through hard work and determination?

A.
"I have already described my habitation, which was a tent under the side of a rock, surrounded with a strong pale of posts and cables . . ."

B.
"But I must observe, too, that at first this was a confused heap of goods, which, as they lay in no order, so they took up all my place;"

C. ***** (Am I correct?)
"I had never handled a tool in my life; and yet, in time, by labour, application, and contrivance, I found at last that I wanted nothing but I could have made it, especially if I had had tools."

D.
"And now it was that I began to keep a journal of every day’s employment; for, indeed, at first I was in too much hurry, and not only hurry as to labour, but in too much discomposure of mind;"

E.
"After I had got to shore, and escaped drowning, instead of being thankful to God for my deliverance, having first vomited, with the great quantity of salt water which had got into my stomach, and recovering myself a little, I ran about the shore wringing my hands . . ."
