NEED ANSWER A.S.A.P In this passage from “The Minister’s Black Veil,” the minister’s fiancée inquires about the black veil. What concern does she express to him?

For the sake of your holy office, do away this scandal!” A. She suspects that he is guilty of committing a terrible sin that he is keeping secret. B.

 She feels that his wearing of the black veil will likely harm the reputation of the minister.I believe this is the best explanation for her concerns about how people will wonder why he is wearing a black veil and conjecture that he has something to hide and thus cast doubt on his reputation and perhaps jeopardize his career as a minister.
