    Explanation
    Rainsford believes that the Cape Buffalo is the most dangerous game, while General Zaroff believes that humans are. This is because Rainsford is a big-game hunter and has encountered the ferocity and strength of Cape Buffalos firsthand. On the other hand, General Zaroff, who has become bored with hunting regular animals, has developed a twisted desire to hunt humans for the ultimate challenge. He sees humans as the most intelligent and cunning prey, making them the most dangerous game in his eyes.

    Explanation
    Zaroff believes that his "game" is the most dangerous because he values the ability to reason. He sees it as a higher level of intelligence and believes that it poses a greater threat. While greater strength, speed, and the ability to walk on two feet are all advantageous, Zaroff believes that the ability to reason allows his prey to strategize and outsmart him, making them the most dangerous opponents in his twisted game.

      True

    Zaroff has never lost his game. This statement is true because throughout the story "The Most Dangerous Game," Zaroff is portrayed as a skilled hunter who has never been defeated by any of his prey. He takes pride in his ability to outsmart and capture even the most cunning of animals or humans. Zaroff's confidence in his hunting skills is evident when he challenges Rainsford, the protagonist, to be his next prey. Despite Rainsford's efforts to outwit him, Zaroff ultimately fails to capture him, but this does not change the fact that Zaroff has never lost a game before.
