Which of the following quotations show(s) Piggy's lack of strength, endurance or physical prowess?


"'Aren't you going to swim?' Piggy shook his head. 'I can't swim. I wasn't allowed. My asthma -' 'Sucks to your ass-mar!'"


"The owner of the voice came backing out of the undergrowth so that twigs scratched on a greasy wind-breaker. The naked crooks of his knees were plump, caught and scratched by thorns. He bent down, removed the thorns carefully, and turned around. He was shorter than the fair boy, and very fat."


"'That's right. Can't catch my breath. I was the only boy in school what had asthma,' said the fat boy with a touch of pride. 'And I've been wearing specs since I was three.'"


"An expression of pain and inward concentration altered the pale contours of his face. He smeared the sweat from his cheeks and quickly adjusted the spectacles on his nose."
