Chapter 14 Question
| TE and PC
1. What are tracker jackers?A kind of wasps but are one of the Capitol’s mutations.
| P185 More likely they will be one of the Capitol’s mutations, trackerjackers. Like thejabberjays, these killer wasps were spawned in a lab and strategically placed, like land mines, around the districts during the war. Larger than regular wasps, they have a distinctive solid gold body and a sting that raises a lump the size of a plum on contact. Most people can’t tolerate more than a few stings. Some die at once. If you live, the hallucinations brought on by the venom have actually driven people to madness. And there’s another thing, These wasps will hunt down anyone who disturbs their nest and attempt to kill them.
| 2. How did the rebels the wasps?Run to the lake and wave hands try to let wasps go.
| P190 Peeta and a few others have the sense to drop everything and bolt. I can hear cries of “To the lake! To the lake!” and know they hope to evade the wasps by taking to the water. It must be close if they think they can outdistance the furious insects. Glimmer and another girl, the one from District 4, are not so lucky. They receive multiple stings before they’re even out of my view.
| 3. What is Katniss’ first sponsor gift?A small plastic pot with medicine.
| P188 Sitting on my sleeping bag is a small plastic pot attached to a silver parachute. My first gift from a sponsor! I unscrew the lid and I know by the scent that it’s medicine.
| 4. What is Rue’s special ability ? Leaping from tree to tree.
| P189 There’s a rustling in a nearby tree. Then the same noise again a bit farther off. I realize she’s leaping from tree to tree. It’s all I can do not to laugh out loud. Is this what she showed the Gamemakers?I imagine her flying around the training equipment never touching the floor. She should have gotten at least a ten.
| 5.Why does Katniss return to glimmer’sbody? Do you think she makes the right decision?She wants to get the bow and the arrows. I think she makes the right decision because although she take a risk but she got the weapon which she can use best and get more superiority form others. That means she get more chances to win and alive.
| P192The bow. The arrows. I must get them.
| 5. What are the effects of tracker jacker stings?The stings become so repulsive.
| P193 I pull a slimy arrow from the sheath and try to position it on the bowstring but instead of one string I see three and the stench from the stings is so repulsive I can’t do it.

1. What changes Katniss’ perspective onher chances in the hunger GamersShe got weapons so she can shoot others and protect herself instead of always run away.
| P197 I have a bow and arrows! The weapons give me an entirely new perspective on the Games. I know I have tough opponents left to face. But I am no longer merely prey that runs and hides or takes desperate measures.
| 2.Why does Katniss want Rue for an ally?Because she think Rue is smart and helpful ,also if they ally they can have more chance to survive. And the most important things isKattniss trust her.
| P280“Why not? You saved me with those tracker jackers. You’re smart enough to still be alive. And I can’t seem to shake you anyway,” I say. P281 “No, I meant it,” I say. I can almost hear Haymitch groaning as I team up with this wispy child. But I want her. Because she’s a survivor, and I trust her, and why not admit it? She reminds me of Prim.
| 3.Why would the capitol not want different districts to know about each other?Because even though the information seems harmless, they don’t want people in different districts to know about one another.
| P283 In fact, I wonder if the Gamemakers are blocking out our conversation, because even though the information seems harmless, they don’t want people in different districts to know...
