War! What Is It Good For?

Read the following passage from The Giver by Lois Lowry:

Jonas stood alone in the center of the field. Several of the children raised their heads and looked at him uneasily. The attacking armies slowed, emerged from the crouching positions, and watched to see what he was doing. In his mind, Jonas saw again the face of the boy who had lain dying on a field and had begged him for water. He had a sudden choking feeling, as if it were difficult to breathe.

According the the passage what is this an example of? 

A. Irony
B. Plot Twist 
C. External Conflict
D. Internal conflict

Scroll down for the answer.


Correct Answer:  D - No one else truly knew what Jonas was experiencing.  The children were playing war, but Jonas knew that war had once existed and was terrible.
