this expression is a form of slang. this is because jargon is usually a style of language used within a specific group of people and that uses terms that can only be understood by that set of people and that makes no sense unless you have the context. it is not general english either as the terms used are not common in the english learned outside of native-speaking countries. an idiom is basically a composed word that generates from another two but that you cannot derive its meaning from the two individual composing words. it has a meaning all on its own. but this expression has none of the previous options carachteristics. it is rather a phrase that uses very informal vocabulary like gnarly and flip to give meaning to an idea and even underline the expression of one speaker to the other. correct answer then in c.
its d for sure. also your profile picture is the only thing that brought me to answer this question lol
the first set of lines that describe the actions taken by the lady of shalott to defy the curse are:
“with a steady stony glance—
like some bold seer in a trance,
beholding all his own mischance,
mute, with a glassy countenance—
she look'd down to camelot.”
previously in the poem, it is mentioned that by looking directly at camelot a curse would fall on her. so by by looking down with a stony, glassy countenance, she is defying it.
the second set of lines are:
"still as the boathead wound along
the willowy hills and fields among,
they heard her chanting her deathsong,
the lady of shalott."
in this passage she has left the tower where she was confined to avoid the curse and invites death by singing her last song, challenging the curse once again.
