Answer: The passage supports the inference that Unferth is petty.
Unferth (also Hunferth) is a character from the Old English epic poem Beowulf. The poem tells a story about a warrior named Beowulf, who arrives to help King Hrothgar and his people to fight Grendel.
In the poem, Unferth is Hrothgar's servant. His name is mentioned four times throughout the poem. Unferth is portrayed as a character of little importance, when compared to the main characters. The correct answer is, therefore, that this passage supports the inference that Unferth is petty.
