Between Civilization and Savagery

LRDFLS-JWLO14

Which of the following does not illustrate the competing influences of civilization and savagery on Jack?

A

"He noticed blood on his hands and grimaced distastefully, looked for something on which to clean them, then wiped them on his shorts and laughed."

B

"'I cut the pig's throat,' said Jack, proudly, and yet twitched as he said it. 'Can I borrow yours, Ralph, to make a nick in the hilt?'"

C

"'There was lashings of blood,' said Jack, laughing and shuddering, 'you should have seen it!'"

D

"His mind was crowded with memories; memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they closed in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away its life like a long satisfying drink."

E

All of the answer choices illustrate this.
