In the passage, Jerry

A thought speaking would be easy, but it was actually hard.

The last sentence states that Jerry thought speaking would be easy, but based on the information that he was stuttering, sweating, and shaking, it was clearly not so simple for him. Answer (has to deliver a speech to thousands of people) is false because the passage never mentions how many people were in the crowd. Answer (tries to do something he hasn’t done in a long time) is also incorrect because the second sentence says Jerry had never spoken in front of a crowd. Answer (thought speaking would be hard, but it was actually easy) is incorrect because it is the opposite of what happened.
