Sherburn

HUCKFN-J6ZN3X

What line from the beginning of Chapter 22 BEST emphasizes the idea that one powerful man is stronger than a crowd of cowards?

A

They swarmed up the street towards Sherburn's house, a-whooping and yelling and raging like Injuns, and everything had to clear the way or get run over and tromped to mush, and it was awful to see.

B

They swarmed in front of Sherburn's palings as thick as they could jam together, and you couldn't hear yourself think for the noise.

C

Lots of the women and girls was crying and taking on, scared most to death.

D

Just then Sherburn steps out of the roof of his little front porch, with a double-barrel gun in his hand, and takes his stand, perfectly ca'm and deliberate, not saying a word. The racket stopped, and the wave sucked back.

E

Then pretty soon Sherburn sort of laughed; not the pleasant kind, but the kind that makes you feel like when you are eating bread that's got sand in it.
