I perceived in this moment that when the white man turns tyrant it is his own freedom that he destroys. He becomes a sort of hollow, posing dummy, the conventionalized figure of a sahib. For it is the condition of his rule that he shall spend his life in trying to impress the "natives," and so in every crisis he has got to do what the "natives" expect of him. . . . A sahib has got to act like a sahib; he has got to appear resolute, to know his own mind and do definite things.

Meanwhile [Shakespeare's] extraordinarily gifted sister, let us suppose, remained at home. She was as adventurous, as imaginative, as agog to see the world as he was. But she was not sent to school. She had no chance of learning grammar and logic, let alone of reading Horace and Virgil. She picked up a book now and then, one of her brother's perhaps, and read a few pages. But then her parents came in and told her to mend the stockings or mind the stew and not moon about with books and papers. Which statement best conveys how Woolf achieves her purpose in this excerpt? A . She tells a story to show how many great works have gone unnoticed due to sexism. B . She uses the phrase "extraordinarily gifted" to show that talent ran in Shakespeare's family.
C . She uses the phrase "now and then" to show that many women were uncertain of their own talents. D . She tells a story to illustrate how women's talent has been historically suppressed.

I'm not even sure I really know what the scene is about. I'm really looking forward to doing this. Which statement best describes the narrator's point of view in this excerpt?
