1) from the time he sees the pig to the time he helps kill the mother pig, how does jack change?

2) the boys acting out of the killing of the pig seems intended by the author to represent savagery. Is there a situation where this activity would not be considered in that way? Explain.

The first time Jack encounters the pig he is unable to complete the task.... he cannot bring himself to kill it. During the time between the two instances, Jack sheds his civility, leaving him capable and willing to kill the mother pig without hesitation or remorse.

Please ask your questions separately.
