Which of the following passages from Chapters 1-3 goes directly against the idea that the Capitol enjoys making a spectacle out of human suffering?
“It was considered very anti-climactic in the Capitol, all those quiet, bloodless deaths.”
“Starvation is never the cause of death officially. It’s always the flu, or exposure, or pneumonia. But that fools no one.”
“Effie Trinket asks for volunteers, but no one steps forward...This is standard. Family devotion only goes so far for most people on reaping day.”
“ ‘What an exciting day!’ she warbles as she attempts to straighten her wig, which has listed severely to the right. ‘But more excitement to come! It’s time to choose our boy tribute!’ “
“When they televise the replay of the reapings tonight, everyone will make note of my tears, and I’ll be marked as an easy target.”
