The Hunger Olympics

HUNGER-Y8NLXU

Which of the following passages from chapter 5 BEST supports the connection between the Hunger Games opening ceremonies and an athletic event in our society, such as the Olympics?

A

“ ‘I think he said for us to hold hands,’ says Peeta. He grabs my right hand in his left, and we look to Cinna for confirmation. He nods and gives a thumbs-up, and that’s the last thing I see before we enter the city.”

B

“We seem to be leaving a trail of fire off the flowing capes. Cinna was right about the minimal makeup, we both look more attractive but utterly recognizable.”

C

”The people of the Capitol are going nuts, showering us with flowers, shouting our names, our first names, which they have bothered to find on the program.”

D

“Cinna has given me a great advantage. No one will forget me. Not my look, not my name. Katniss. The girl who was on fire.”

E

“So I keep holding on, but I can’t help feeling strange about the way Cinna has linked us together. It’s not really fair to present us as a team and then lock us into the arena to kill each other.”
