Presented by . . .
Because there must be no mistake about this assembly, no chasing imaginary. He thought that this meeting must not be fine, but business.He want to put things straight at the meeting. And he did it.
For example, the rocks for a lavatory. Keep the fire going and smoke showing as a signal. Don't take fire from the mountain. Take their food up there. And they have got to talk about this fear and decide there's nothing in it.
Quote of the Chapter
Interesting Character: Jack
"What are we? Humans? Or animals? Or savages? What's grownups going to think? Going off—hunting pigs—letting fires out—and now!"
Said by Piggy who was irritated by the fact of how disorganized and uncooperative the group has become
He is complaining that at this pace the boys are going to forget about law, order, and moral and turning in to savage animals that kill and do whatever they want
He also thinks about what the adults would say when they see this situation, meaning that Piggy respects and admires the adults who are wiser than them and are more calm and cooperative when solving problems
After this quote is said, Jack breaks the rules by speaking even though he didn't have the conch, makes fun of Piggy, and runs away, leaving Piggy, Ralph and Simon behind
This event completely separates Ralph (who wants cooperation, law and order), and Jack (who wants power and savagery)

Thank you :) XD
Jack character shows how leaders in history rose to power
Tries to convince the children on the island to be afraid of the beast
because Jack, as the hunter, has not seen it
Jack is acting as a protector of the kids, making them look up to him.
Answer PART B
"Jack stood up, scowling in the gloom, and held out his hands.
'I haven't finished talking yet!' (Said Ralph)
'But you've talked and talked!' (Said Jack)
"You hunters! You can laugh! But I tell you the smoke is more important than the pig, however often you kill one"
"'Well them- I've been all over this island. By myself. If there were a beast, I'd have seen it. Be frightened because like that - but there is no beast in the forest'"
"'Bollocks the rules!!'"
