+1 for C.

Conclusion :
Anger in response to insults is unreasonable, since insult provokes the insulted party to feel either pity or gratefulness.

(C) Anger is an unreasonable response to any action that should prompt pity or gratitude. --> Correct, negate the statement and see how it affects the aforementioned conclusion.

Hence, C.

I really got confused by OA , To me, Answer C seem like the definition of anger that "Anger is an unreasonable response to any action that should prompt pity or gratitude."

If Anger is an unreasonable response to pity then Anger in response to an Insult is not unreasonable


it would be better if option C were like "Anger I to any action that should prompt pity or gratitudes an unreasonable response"
