    Correct Answer
    A. Allie's baseball mitt
    Explanation

It reminds him of his deceased younger brother, Allie, who was intelligent and kind-hearted. Holden deeply cherishes the glove as it represents Allie's uniqueness and innocence. Writing about the mitt allows Holden to express his emotions and keep the memory of Allie alive. It also serves as a way for Holden to cope with his grief and connect with his brother on a deeper level.
