  2. I don't see any limited agreement in A ... unless you have a different idea of what "limited agreement" is.

    It's the opposite of C, so that's out.
    It has nothing to do with D, so that's out, too.

    It has to be B -- do you see why?

  3. Jenna is rephrasing Angelo's statement, which would be an acknowledgment.
