Which of the following inferences is best

 supported by the passage below (paragraph 30)?

In 1789 the French Revolution seemed to offer young people a chance to realize these dreams. Wordsworth and Coleridge, among many others, responded to the ideals of "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" and were infused with enthusiasm for the revolutionary cause. As Wordsworth exulted (in lines later included in his long autobiographical narrative poem The Prelude), "Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, / But to be young was very heaven!" When these ideals seemed betrayed by the bloody excesses of the Reign of Terror, both men slipped into conservative views. The next generation of Romantics, such as Percy Bysshe Shelley, who had been inspired by Wordsworth's and Coleridge's youthful political radicalism, felt betrayed and continued to support revolt both at home and abroad.


William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge fought in the French Revolution.


Wordsworth probably ran for a seat in Parliament on the Conservative ticket once he retired from writing poetry


Second-generation Romantics were more committed to ideals than to following the teachings of their elders


Percy Bysshe Shelley disagreed with most other figures of the second generation.
