Can someone check my answer please?

Read the following sentences from "Marriage is a Private Affair."

""I owe it to you, my son, as a duty to show what is right and what is wrong. Whoever put this idea into your head might as well have cut your throat. It is Satan's work." He waved his son away."

"You will change your mind, Father, when you know Nene."
"I shall never see her," was the reply. From that night the father scarcely spoke to his son. He did not, however, cease hoping that he would realize how serious was the danger he was heading for. Day and night he put him in his prayers."

Using the ideas in these sentences, the reader can most likely conclude that the Father:

a) resents Nene for the hold she has on his son.
b) wishes his son were dead rather than foolish.
c) believes his son has chosen a self-destructive path
d) rejects Nene because she does not share his religious beliefs.

I think it’s either A or D
