Lot offers a disturbing alternative, suggesting that they do whatever they want with his daughters instead. This response is seen as a reflection of the cultural context and the extreme lengths Lot was willing to go to protect his guests, rather than condoning or promoting such actions.

The people were angry at Lot for trying to protect the angels and saw him as an outsider who had taken on the role of a judge. They threatened to deal worse with Lot than with the angels, indicating their anger and hostility towards him.

    • C.

      Baking soda

    Explanation
    Sulfur is used to make matches. Matches typically consist of a small wooden stick coated with a mixture of sulfur, an oxidizing agent, and a binder. When struck against a rough surface, the friction creates enough heat to ignite the sulfur, which then ignites the oxidizing agent, resulting in a flame. Therefore, sulfur plays a crucial role in the production of matches.
