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


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


"'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."


"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?"


"'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."


"'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.'"
