When Ralph, Simon and Jack first climb the mountain they see a dip in the ground filled with blue flowers. The view from the mountain top reveals that they definitely are on an island. The island is roughly boat shaped with the mountain at the blunt end. The island slopes down through jungle to its pointed end, where it terminates in a rocky outcrop connected to the main island by a narrow causeway. Ralph points out that he can't see any smoke or boats and they assume from this that the island has no other inhabitants. On their way back to the beach the boys discover that there are pigs on the island.

Later in the book Ralph, Roger and Jack climb the mountain looking for the beast, which Samneric claimed that they saw there. In the darkness they see the body of the dead parachutist and mistaken believe that it is the beast.

List the three boys who continue the search for beast what beast do they see?

I assume that you are referring to the three boys who climbed to the top of the mountain in chapter 7: Shadows and Tall Trees. The three boys were Ralph, Jack and Roger. They saw exactly the same thing that Samneric had earlier seen, the dead body of an airman still attached to his parachute. Just like Samneric, in the fading light of evening, they mistook the body, which moved as the wind caught its parachute, for the beast.

In Lord of the Flies why did the body on the mountain frighten the boys?

The body of the dead parachutist frightened the boys primarily because they did not realise that it was a body. In the predawn darkness when Samneric first saw the body, it moved as the wind tugged at its parachute and the twins thought they had seen a creature with wings. Given that this was what Ralph, Roger and Jack were expecting to see when they climbed the mountain, the illusion of movement convinced the three boys that they had also seen the beast.

How is Simon's death ironic in Lord of the Flies?

Simon's death is ironic because he is on his way to tell the rest of the boys that the beast on the mountain top is simply the dead body of a man when he himself is mistaken for the beast and is savagely beaten to death.
