    Correct Answer
    D. Montag had shot a continuous pulse of liquid fire on him
    Explanation
    Beatty was described as a shrieking blaze, a jumping, sprawling gibbering manikin because Montag had shot a continuous pulse of liquid fire on him. This suggests that Beatty was engulfed in flames and was screaming and thrashing around in pain and madness. The use of the words "shrieking," "jumping," "sprawling," and "gibbering" emphasize the chaotic and frenzied state that Beatty was in after being set on fire. This action by Montag represents a turning point in their relationship and symbolizes Montag's rebellion against the oppressive society they live in.
