    I have the perception that the aswer of number two is wrong cause she said she was told that she wouldn’t be able to make a career but now she is motivated to do things if someone says she cannot do them.

    • The answer is correct. If yor read it again it says that: She liked people to tell her that she couldn’t make a career out of dancing, which is false. She didn’t like it.
