Which of the following passages most clearly shows how Piggy's specs symbolize logic, reason, and clear thinking?


"'That's right. Can't catch my breath. I was the only boy in our school what had asthma,' said the fat boy with a touch of pride. 'And I've been wearing specs since I was three.'
He took off his glasses and held them out to Ralph, blinking and smiling, and then started to wipe them against his grubby wind-breaker."


"'His specs - use them as burning glasses!'
Piggy was surrounded before he could back away.
'Here - let me go!' His voice rose to a shriek of terror as Jack snatched the glasses off his face. 'Mind out! Give 'em back! I can hardly see! You'll break the conch!'"


"Piggy took off his glasses and blinked at the assembly while he wiped them on his shirt.
'You're hindering Ralph. You're not letting him get to the most important thing.'
He paused effectively.
'Who knows we're here? Eh?'"
