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?
“ ‘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.”
“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.”
”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.”
“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.”
“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.”
