      B. insecure.

    • C.

      C. impatient.

    • D.

      D. courageous.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. insecure.
    Explanation
    The given answer is B. insecure. This can be inferred from the phrase "the sound of the ebony clock tolling the hour seems to make the guests feel." The word "insecure" suggests a feeling of uncertainty or lack of confidence, which is likely to be caused by the sound of the clock. The tolling of the clock may create a sense of unease or discomfort among the guests, leading to their feeling insecure.

    D. D. happiness.
    Explanation
    The tolling of the ebony clock is often associated with darkness, mystery, and impending doom, making it unlikely that it symbolizes happiness.

Therefore, D. happiness is the least likely symbol represented by the tolling of the ebony clock.
