Long Term Survival

HUNGER-VNSJRL

Which of the following passages from Chapter 15 BEST supports the idea that Katniss has a strong desire to survive, long-term?

A

“I give Rue some matches and she makes sure I have plenty of leaves in case my stings flare up again. We extinguish our fire and head upstream until it’s almost nightfall.”

B

“The anthem should block out our words, but still I whisper. I even take the precaution of covering my lips with my hand. I don’t want the audience to know what I’m planning to tell her about Peeta.”

C

“I pull out the glasses and slip them on. Rue wasn’t kidding. I can see everything from the leaves on the trees to a skunk strolling through the bushes a good fifty feet away. I could kill it from here if I had a mind to.”

D

“ ‘The Careers have two pairs. But they’ve got everything down by the lake,” Rue says. ‘And they’re so strong.’ ‘We’re strong, too,’ I say. ‘Just in a different way.’ “

E

“ ‘But, Katniss, they’re not hungry,’ says Rue. ‘No, they’re not. That’s the problem,’ I agree. And for the first time I have a plan. A plan that isn’t motivated by the need for flight and evasion. An offensive plan.”
