10. Pg 33 “As you wish, my friend,” he said. “The choice rests entirely with you. But may I not venture to suggest that you will find my idea of sport more diverting that Ivan’s?” The rising action of a story often offers complications, or difficulties. In this passage, how is Rainsford’s situation made more difficult?

Rainsford's choices are limited. Either he joins Zaroff in hunting down people or he will have to face Ivan and be hunted himself. The difficulty lies in the fact that all Zaroff does is hunt. It has been made clear that he is pretty good at it too. We also know that Rainsford is not the first man he has hunted.
