Which of the following passages most clearly shows that Jack understands both power and fear better than Ralph?

A

"At once half the boys were on their feet. Jack clamored among them, the conch forgotten. 'Come on! Follow me!'

B

"'We'll have rules!' [Jack] cried excitedly. 'Lots of rules! Then when anyone breaks 'em - 'Whee-oh!' 'Wacco!' 'Bong!' 'Doink!' Ralph felt the conch lifted from his lap."

C

"Jack held out his hand for the conch. 'There's pigs,' he said. There's food; and bathing water in that little stream along there - and everything. Didn't anyone find anything else?"

D

"'But there isn't a beast!' Something he had not known was there rose in him and compelled him to make the point, loudly and again. 'But I tell you there isn't a beast!' The assembly was silent."

E

"'Ralph's right of course. There isn't a snake-thing. But if there was a snake we'd hunt it and kill it. We're going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody. And we'll look for the snake too -' 'But there isn't a snake!' 'We'll make sure when we go hunting.'"
