1) Jack blows the conch shell.

2) The boys refuse to replace Ralph as leader.

3) Jack responds by storming away and saying that he's leaving.

4) Simon says they should go back to the mountain and look for the beast. The others react by NOT going. They are afraid.

Please ask your questions separately.

Ralph blows the shell the first time and he desperately holds on to it as his symbol of his leadership.
