Read the passage.


excerpt from "Why I Write"
by George Orwell


One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand. For all one knows that demon is simply the same instinct that makes a baby squall for attention. And yet it is also true that one can write nothing readable unless one constantly struggles to efface one's own personality.


How does Orwell’s word choice affect meaning in this excerpt?


Question 1 options:


A. By using the word instinct, Orwell reinforces the idea that writing is a natural process that all people have an innate desire to participate in.

C. By using the the word demon to describe the urge to write, Orwell suggests that writing is an impulse that is beyond one’s control.

D. By using words like readable and true, Orwell reinforces the idea that great writing should always communicate what actually happened.
