I am not asking anyone to answer these questions for me, but I would hope that someone could possibly guide me toward the answers to these questions.

These questions regard "The Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell, which is available to read upon the internet.

1. (a) Find three details that provide early clues about Zaroff's hobby. (b) How do these clues create suspense?

2. Using a chart like the one below; show how the details of Rainsford's first night build a sense of dread.

3. In your opinion, what are the three most suspenseful events in the story? Why?

4. Early in the story, Rainsford says, "The world is made up of two classes--the hunters and huntees." How does his conflict with Zaroff help Rainsford understand this expression in a new way?

5. In addition to conflicts between characters, stories may include conflicts between a character and nature and internal conflicts within a character. Use a chart like this one to explain each conflict.

6. What careers, other than hunter, would be suited to someone with Rainsford's skills and attitudes? Why?
