Internal and External conflicts?

I searched google.com for meanings of both and I found one site but the definition was to complicated. I’m doing a summer reading project for pendragon and need to answer questions for each chapter, and the first question for chapter 3 is “What type of conflict is this, external or internal?”. The questions follow after a quote from the chapter. The quote is when Bobby is getting chased by “quigs” down the railway tracks. It end when he says he needs to find the door.

So does anyone know of a good link that has an easy to understand definition, or even know it yourself?

Thnx, Tranta.

Internal is conflict inside the protagonist (e.g. in the mind.) External is outside forces causing conflict.

Alright so it’s external, good.
