    In his innocence, Ponyboy believes that the Socs are different and more privileged than the greasers. When Cherry Valance tries to tell him that Socs have problems too, he doesn’t believe her. By the end of the chapter, however, he lets the reader know that he knows more about these subjects than he used to.
