When Beowulf decides to travel to the land of the Danes to help Hrothgar, the narrator states, “None/ Of the wise ones regretted his going, much/ As he was loved by the Geats: the omens were good,/ And they urged the adventure on.

Why would the wise ones not regret Beowulf’s departure if they love him so much?

A. They distrust the omens and want Beowulf to prove them wrong.

B. They have great pride in their warrior and want him to make their people famous worldwide.

C. They trust the omens and Beowulf to guide them along the path of Fate.

D. Both B and C.

John C.

The answer can't be A as the passage eplicitly states the "omens were good". Also Beowulf can't be a Dane as he's going to the land of the Danes. The best answer seems to be C as there is no evidence mentioning "worldwide" only evidence that he will make their people famous to the Danes .
