Ruling Like a Beast

LRDFLS-EW1MRT

Which of the following quotations most clearly shows how Jack manipulates the boys' fear of the beast in order to maintain his control over the group?

A

"Some of you will stay here to improve the cave and defend the gate. I shall take a few hunters with me and bring back meat. The defenders of the gate will see that the others don't sneak in."

B

"The chief paused. They saw a triangle of startling pink dart out, pass along his lips and vanish again.
'-and then, the beast might try to come in. You remember how he crawled-'"

C

"'But didn't we, didn't we-?'
'No! How could we - kill - it?'

D

"The tribe considered this; and then were shaken, as if by a flow of wind. The chief saw the effect of his words and stood abruptly.
'But tomorrow we'll hunt and when we've got meat we'll have a feast-'"
