Which quote best describes Orwell's internal conflict in the story "Shooting an

Elephant"?

O "In the end the sneering yellow faces of young men that met me everywhere,

the insults hooted after me when I was at a safe distance, got badly on my

nerves."

"But at that moment I glanced round at the crowd that had followed me. It was

an immense crowd, two thousand at the least and growing every minute."

"All I knew was that I was stuck between my hatred of the empire I served and

my rage against the evil-spirited little beasts who tried to make my job

impossible."

    "All I knew was that I was stuck between my hatred of the empire I served and my rage against the evil-spirited little beasts who tried to make my job

    impossible."

    Explanation:

    The conflict that arises from this situation is between common sense and the imperialism. This conflict is best described when the narrator kills the elephant to save face. Hs internal desires are the imperialism to fall, but as he needs a job, he has to do things that go against his beliefs.
