Read the passage, then answer the question. ( It is not D. I put that in and it said no please respond to me quickly from at least 10min-1hr. Thank you in advance )

The argument is, that different natures have different uses, and the natures of men and women are said to differ. . . . We do not consider that the difference may be purely nominal and accidental; for example, a bald man and a hairy man are opposed in a single point of view, but you cannot infer that because a bald man is a cobbler a hairy man ought not to be a cobbler. 

–The Republic, 


How does Plato support the point of view that you cannot judge a person’s job based on the person’s appearance?

He tells how men and women are different.

He describes a single point of view.

He gives an example of the bald man and the hairy man.

He explains how accidental differences make people more skilled for some jobs.
