Which of the following can be inferred

Which of the following can be inferred from the passage regarding DuBois’ The Quest of the Silver Fleece? It would be expected that a novel by a figure as prominent as W. E. B. DuBois would attract the attention of literary critics. Additionally, when the novel subtly engages the issue of race, as DuBois’ The Quest of the Silver Fleece (1911) does, it would be a surprise not to encounter an abundance of scholarly work about that text. But though valuable scholarship has examined DuBois’ political and historical thought, his novels have received scant attention. Perhaps DuBois the novelist must wait his turn behind DuBois the philosopher, historian, and editor. But what if the truth lies elsewhere: what if his novels do not speak to current concerns? The lack of attention devoted to The Quest of the Silver Fleece can be attributed to the fact that it was DuBois’ first novel., Among DuBois’ novels, The Quest of the Silver Fleece is unusual in that it has received scant attention from scholars., The Quest of the Silver Fleece has at least one feature that typically would attract the attention of literary scholars., The Quest of the Silver Fleece, given its subtle exploration of race, is probably the best novel written by DuBois., Much of the scholarly work that has focused on The Quest of the Silver Fleece has been surprisingly critical of it.
