1. Life of the party

J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring begins with Bilbo’s “eleventy-first” birthday party. In what way does Gandalf contribute to the celebration?

A) By borrowing Bilbo’s ring to perform a trick
B) By driving off a Black Rider seen snooping near Bilbo’s hobbit-hole
C) By putting on a spectacular fireworks display
D) By recounting Bilbo’s adventures to the amazed hobbits

Your answer was correct!

Gandalf’s fireworks shows are famous, so the party is a memorable one. It is Bilbo himself who uses the ring to perform a trick — disappearing in full view of the party guests. Gandalf refuses even to touch the ring, for fear of being seduced by its power.
