Read this passage: there were old, half-rotten vegetables; bones from the evening meal, covered in white sauce that had gone hard; a few raisins and almonds; some cheese that gregor had declared inedible two days before; a dry roll and some bread spread with butter and salt. "am i less sensitive than i used to be, then? ", he thought, and was already sucking greedily at the cheese which had immediately, almost compellingly, attracted him much more than the other foods on the newspaper. quickly one after another, his eyes watering with pleasure, he consumed the cheese, the vegetables and the sauce; the fresh foods, on the other hand, he didn't like at all, and even dragged the things he did want to eat a little way away from them because he couldn't stand the smell. kafka, the metamorphosis (david wyllie, trans.) what can you infer about gregor from this excerpt? a. he enjoys disturbing his family by making a lot of noise. b. he is upset at being locked in the room and tries to escape. c. he is becoming less human and more like a bug. d. he is depressed and is trying to hurt himself.
C. He is becoming less human and more like a bug.
The correct answer is C.
In this excerpt of Kafka's "The Metamorphosis," we can observe how Gregor is slowly losing his human part and giving in to his new insect ways.
Instead of being attracted to the fresh food, he feels an intense urge to consume the garbage and rotten edibles, just like insects do. Not only that, he has to push the good food away because he cannot longer stander its smell.
