Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Why doesn't Piggy want to swim with Ralph?

    Piggy doesn't want to swim with Ralph because he has asthma. Asthma is a respiratory condition that can be triggered by physical exertion or exposure to certain environments, such as swimming. Swimming could potentially worsen Piggy's asthma symptoms or cause him to have difficulty breathing, which is why he chooses not to participate in this activity.

    How does Ralph gather all of the survivors?

    Ralph gathers all of the survivors by using a conch shell he finds on the beach. The conch shell becomes a symbol of authority and order on the island, and when Ralph blows into it, the sound attracts the attention of the other survivors. They are drawn to the sound and gather around Ralph, establishing him as a leader and creating a sense of unity among the group.

  • 6. 

    Why do the boys suddenly need Piggy's specs?

    The boys suddenly need Piggy's specs to start the fire because Piggy's glasses are the only means they have to create a fire. The fire is important for various reasons, such as signaling for rescue, providing warmth, and cooking food. Piggy's glasses are used as a magnifying glass to focus the sunlight and create a spark, which ignites the fire. Without Piggy's specs, the boys would not be able to start the fire and would lose an essential survival tool.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Name one thing that suggests the boys are starting to form a society.

    The boys electing a leader, organizing into job specific groups, and holding meetings and following the democratic process all suggest that they are starting to form a society. By electing a leader, they establish a hierarchy and a system of governance. Organizing into job specific groups indicates division of labor and a sense of organization. Holding meetings and following the democratic process demonstrates their willingness to make collective decisions and involve everyone in the decision-making process. These actions show the development of social structures and processes within the group, indicating the formation of a society.

    What is the difference between the gathering in the clip and in the book?

    In the book, Ralph is the only one present on the island initially and he takes the initiative to gather all the boys together by blowing the conch shell. On the other hand, in the film adaptation, all the boys arrive on the island at the same time, so there is no need for Ralph to call them together.
