Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Is the answer A, B, C, D or E?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

E...analogy...people thought australia was the antipodes, a place considered opposite of civilization...

After reading the other responses, A does seem reasonable. I stick with rolling the dice on E, so whats the OA and OE so I understand my flawed logic in E. Thanks.

A stands.
All other choices seems awkward.
Only B comes close after A.
