What caused the friction between Ralph and Jack in Lord of the Flies?

Since Jack was the leader of the choir group, he naturally thought he was suppose to be the leader or in some position of leadership. When Ralph got chosen over Jack, he was secretly holding a grudge against Ralph and made many attempts to show the boys how he is more capable of becoming chief by killing a pig and bribing meat to the people. Ralph kinda took hint of this and his anger was further fueled by Jack's foolishness in letting the fire go out when a rescue ship was out within seeing distance from the island just because he wanted to go hunting. Jack and Ralph's ideas of whats more important finally clashed, Jack and his hunting trips or Ralph with his fire

How do you form your own clique?

Just get friends and start adding . ya right that's an amatuer answer. cliques are a big responsibility and you will need the following types of people to make up your own clique 1. The Leader- the girl that knows what to do at all times she is the heart of every plan and usually the creator as well 2. The party girl- she scores the invites and gets enough for all the clique, not the most trustworthy but she's fun one to hang with 3. The smart girl- grades are top priority with her. she helps you study and is the one everyone looks to to solve a problem involving intelligence 4. The athletic girl- the girl dreams of being famous but not for movies or modeling but for going pro. watch out though you don't want the "tomboy" girl, you want the pretty girl that can kick butt 5. The second in command- this is the girl that's the leader's right hand girl she knows everything about everyone and knows things before they're made public. she's always there and a good trustworthy girl. BELIEVE ME if you have a good group of friends that don't fall under these categories then make sure they have these characteristics....confidence, poise, beauty, trustworthiness, loyalty, and above all the ability to have fun
