He has a presence and "offhand authority" that makes him the most obvious leader in the group.

B

His "size and attractive appearance" make him the largest and physically strongest of the boys.

C

He blows the "strident blare" on the conch that brings all the boys together.

D

His father is "a commander in the Navy" and thus likely to "come and rescue [the boys]".

E

Unlike Jack, whose face seems "ready to turn, to anger", Ralph doesn't frighten the other boys.
