Foreshadow Hound

FHT451-LLAONX

Which passage foreshadows the Mechanical Hound using its procaine-filled needle to stab Montag, causing Montag's leg to go numb?

A

“Faber held his hand over his left coat-pocket and spoke these words gently, and Montag knew if he reached out, he might pull a book of poetry from the man's coat. But he did not reach out. His. hands stayed on his knees, numbed and useless.”

B

"'If you see that dog outside,'" said Mildred, " 'give him a kick for me.' He hesitated, listening at the door. He opened it and stepped out...He let his breath go in a great sigh...I'm numb, he thought. When did the numbness really begin in my face? In my body? The night I kicked the pill-bottle in the dark, like kicking a buried mine.”

C

“The moon rose in the sky as Montag walked, his lips moving just a trifle.”

D

“Montag said nothing but stood looking at the women's faces as he had once looked at the faces of saints in a strange church he had entered when he was a child. The faces of those enameled creatures meant nothing to him.”

E

“Montag reached inside the parlor wall and pulled the main switch. The images drained away, as if the water had been let out from a gigantic crystal bowl of hysterical fish.”
