Read the text and answer the following question.
A young lion prince was born in Africa to the Lion King, Musafa. His parents named him Simba. Simba’s birth made his uncle, Scar, the second in line to the throne. His presence made his cruel uncle envious that he had a bad idea to destroy them. Scar plotted with the hyenas to kill King Musada and Prince Simba, to make himself a king.
The decision day came at last. The King was killed and Simba was led to believe that it was his fault that the king was murdered. This left the kingdom in shame. Simba felt guilty about his father death so that he decided to live on exile.
While the uncle ruled with iron hands, the Prince grew up beyond the Savannah, living by a philosophy “leave no worries for the rest of your days”. Simba and his friends sang a song entitled “Hakuna Matata”, a Swahili phrase from Kenya which roughly means “no worries to any problem,” whenever they face difficulties.
When his past came to haunt him, the young Prince had to decide his fate: would he remain an outcast, or face his demons and become what he need to be? After years in exile, he was persuaded to return home to bring down Scar and claimed the kingdom as his own, completing the “Circle of Life” with the help of his friends, Timon and Pumbaa. Eventually, righteous defeated evil. Simba succeeded to over the Kingdom from his uncle and became the king. He was a wise king just like his father.

Which characteristic best describes Simba?
Teks tersebut menceritakan seorang pangeran singa muda bernama Simba yang lahir bagi Musafa dan istrinya. Karena kelahirannya, pamannya iri karena itu artinya tahta kerajaan akan diwariskan kepada Simba. Akirnya dia pun berkomplot dengan Hiena untuk membunuh Musafa dan Simba. Namun, yang terbunuh hanyalah Raja sementara Simba dihasut supaya percaya bahwa kematian ayahnya adalah kesalahannya. Karena merasa bersalah, Simba pun meninggalkan kerajaannya dan hidup dalam pengasingan. Dalam pengasingannya, dia hidup dengan berpegang satu filosofi, yaitu “Tak perlu khawatir tentang apa yang akan terjadi.”
Ketika masa lalu datang menghantuinya, Simba harus memutuskan dia harus tetap dalam pengasingan atau kembali ke rumahnya dan merebut tahta dari pamannya, Scar. Dia pun memutuskan untuk kembali dan menghadapi pamannya yang kejam. Dengan bantuan dari teman-temannya, Simba berhasil merebut tahta dan dia menjadi raja. Dia pun menjadi raja yang bijak sama seperti ayahnya. Dari kisah ini, kita bisa menyimpulkan bahwa Simba adalah seorang yang berani (courageous). Dia berani menghadapi tantangan dan berani menghadapi pamannya yang terkenal kejam.
patient artinya sabar, cheerful artinya riang, dan adventurous artinya berjiwa petualang.
Jadi, jawaban yang tepat adalah C.
