Easy and interesting one , is this a real GMAT question?

A young man eager to become a master swordsman journeyed to the home of the greatest teacher of swordsmanship in the kingdom. He asked the teacher, How quickly can you teach me to be a master swordsman? The old teacher replied, It will take ten years. Unsatisfied, the young man asked, What if I am willing to work night and day, every day of the year? the teacher replied, In that case, it will take twenty years.

The teachers main point is that an important quality of a master swordsman is

(A) humility

(B) willingness to work hard

(C) respect for ones elders

(D) patience

(E) determination

Interesting question though not GMAT style. Lesson is not to rush things; patience is a virtue.
