This is because the question asks how the book begins, and this answer suggests that the book starts with Lennie and George in a tense situation, trying to avoid trouble. The other options, such as running a race, planting crops, or running for office, do not align with the idea of hiding from angry townspeople, which is the most logical and plausible way for the book to begin.
