Which of the quotations below best captures the climax of the novel?


"There was nothing there now except a single Commandment. It ran: ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS"


"'Boxer!' cried Clover in a terrible voice. 'Boxer! Get out! Get out quickly! They're taking you to your death!' All the animals took up the cry of "Get out, Boxer, get out!" But the van was already gathering speed and drawing away from them."


"Twelve voice shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."


"For the first time since the expulsion of Jones, there was something resembling a rebellion. Led by three young Black Minorca pullets, the hens made a determined effort to thwart Napoleon's wishes… Napoleon acted swiftly and ruthlessly. He ordered the hens' rations to be stopped, and decreed that any animal giving so much as a grain of corn to a hen should be punished by death."


"Once again the animals were conscious of a vague uneasiness. Never to have dealings with human beings, never to engage in trade, never to make use of money - had not these been among the earliest resolutions passed at that first triumphant Meeting after Jones was expelled?"
