What happens at the end of the chapter? A ship finds the island and the boys all weep.
What do Samneric say to Ralph when he asks what they are going to do to him? They say; “‘Roger sharpened a stick at both ends'” (Golding, 190).
What does the officer say when he sees the boys painted with clay and holding their spears? He just says; “‘Fun and games,'” (Golding, 200).
What does Ralph say when the officer asks who the leader on the island is? Ralph says; “‘I am'” (Golding, 201).
What is the significance of Ralph punching and destroying the pig skull? It shows that he has chosen not to submit to the savagery and he won’t embrace the evil within him like the other boys have.
