Which parts of this excerpt from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Winter Dreams” helps build anticipation in the story?

(A)[Dexter put on his bathing-suit and swam out to the farthest raft, where he stretched dripping on the wet canvas of the springboard].

There was a fish jumping and a star shining and the lights around the lake were gleaming. Over on a dark peninsula a piano was playing the songs of last summer and of summers before that—songs from “Chin-Chin” and “The Count of Luxemburg” and “The Chocolate Soldier”—and

(B)[because the sound of a piano over a stretch of water had always seemed beautiful to Dexter he lay perfectly quiet and listened].

(C)[The tune the piano was playing at that moment had been gay and new five years before when Dexter was a sophomore at college].

(D)[They had played it at a prom once when he could not afford the luxury of proms, and he had stood outside the gymnasium and listened].

The sound of the tune precipitated in him a sort of ecstasy and it was with that ecstasy he viewed what happened to him now.

(E)[It was a mood of intense appreciation, a sense that, for once, he was magnificently attune to life and that everything about him was radiating a brightness and a glamour he might never know again].
