    The correct answer is C It demonstrates how lonely the trip is for Hana.

    Explanation:

    Tears of Autumn was written by Japanese Yoshiko Uchida and it is the story of a young woman who moves to the U. S. from a small village in Japan looking for better opportunities.

    The excerpt is the following:

    She had not befriended the other women in her cabin, for they had lain in their bunks for most of the voyage, too sick to be company to anyone. Each morning Hana had fled the closeness of the sleeping quarters and spent most of the day huddled in a corner of the deck, listening to the lonely songs of some Russians also traveling to an alien land.

    Phrases such as "not befriended the other women in her cabin" or "lonely songs" refer to the loneliness the character felt; also, this idea is reinforced at the end with the expression "alien land."
