    1. The general made one of his deepest bows. "I see," he said. "Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On guard, Rainsford." . . .He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided.

      This is the Resolution because it ends the story with Rainsford killing the general and then comfortanly sleeping in his bed

    2. A man, who had been hiding in the curtains of the bed, was standing there."Rainsford!" screamed the general. "How in God's name did you get here?"

      This is the climax of the story because this was an unexpected turning point where we hd assumed that Rainsford had escaped but really he had come back to get revenge on General Zaroff

    5. "Tonight," said the general, "we will hunt--you and I."Rainsford shook his head. "No, general," he said. "I will not hunt."The general shrugged his shoulders and delicately ate a hothouse grape. "As you wish, my friend," he said. "The choice rests entirely with you. But may I not venture to suggest that you will find my idea of sport more diverting than Ivan's?"

      This is a Man vs. Self conflict becuast Rainsford is giving the choice to either be given to Ivan to be taken care of or to go against the general in a hunting game and it is a dicision he has to make himself.

    6. This is the rising action because it is something the main charater does that changes the stories pace and basically starts the plot of the whole story
