Which of the following quotations best foreshadows the humans' attempt to recapture Animal Farm?


"Nevertheless, they were both thoroughly frightened by the rebellion on Animal Farm, and very anxious to prevent their own animals from learning too much about it."


"It was given out that the animals there practised cannibalism, tortured one another with red-hot horseshoes, and had their females in common. This was what came of rebelling against the laws of Nature, Frederick and Pilkington said."


"Above all, the tune and even the words of "Beasts of England" were known everywhere. It had spread with astonishing speed. The human beings could not contain their rage when they heard this song, though they pretended to think it merely ridiculous."


"And yet the song was irrepressible…. And when the human beings listened to it, they secretly trembled, hearing in it a prophecy of their future doom."


"Jones and all his men, with half a dozen others from Foxwood and Pinchfield, had entered the five-barred gate and were coming up the cart-track that led to the farm. They were all carrying sticks, except Jones, who was marching at the head with a gun in his hands. Obviously they were going to attempt a recapture of the farm."
