HUCKFN-S56MV5

What rationale does Tom give Huck in Chapter 35 for why stealing is acceptable?

A

As long as you return it later, you are only borrowing.

B

They are stealing on a prisoner's behalf and it is not a crime for a prisoner to steal what he needs to escape.

C

It is what The Authorities have taught Tom is right.

D

Tom plans to pay Aunt Sally in coin for what they steal after it is all said and done.

E

He does not bother rationalizing and just tells Huck that is how it is.
