c. ivan and his wife are shocked to see the nose, but they don't question where it came from. this is the correct option.
the passage describes an ordinary scene from everyday life , the wife has prepared breakfast and the husband is having it , and then, this ordinary reality is refelt by the magic presence of " the nose" in the husband's bread. the wife's shocking reaction is magnified ; she thinks she knows where the nose comes from. she accuses her husband of having cut it off from one of his customers. her husband is a barber. the fact that everyday life is disrupted and refelt by the magic element is a feature of magic realism. then, the maginifying of states of mind is another characteristic.
these options are wrong:
a. ivan and his wife wonder how a nose came to be alive and in the bread. it is not mentioned whether the nose is dead or alive. it is just a nose.
b. ivan is angry at those who have more money than he does, but he doesn't know what to do about it. this information is not given.
d. ivan's wife yells at her husband, but she really loves him and is frightened at what he's do. she yells at him and she does not seem to be a loving wife. she insults him.
