imagery is the correct answer
C. Vivid language that appeals to the senses
Explanation: Imagery is defined as a visual language, a description, used most often in literary works to illustrate an event or feeling in a vivid way. It is actually a figurative language that, through its picturesque representations, creates a certain emotion that stirs our senses. This figurative language uses different methods of picturesque representation, such as comparison, which brings a certain description to our senses.
8. c. Metaphor. A simile uses like or as to make a comparison. Hyperbole is an exaggeration of something. Saying that something is of an extreme quality. Personification gives human characteristics to something that is not human. Metaphor is the only appropriate term, using a figure of speech to describe something. In this case, that he is very special to me, perhaps my love.
9. b. Imagery. The definition of imagery is language that appeals to senses. Punctuation are the elements we use in language like periods and commas to break up sentences. Hearing, sight, touch, represent three of the five senses that we have, the other being taste and smell. Metaphors are what we use to describe something with added descriptions. Imagery represents the language that appeals to the senses.
10. c. he starts; him is the best answer. The use of “one” in the first sentence presents the idea that this is general, but the end of the first part then changes the subject to “he”. As such, we should continue to use “he” as the subject for the second part and the indirect object “him” for the second blank. No one else would be owed a degree, other than him, because he is the one who has been going to school for a long time.
11. d. indicate. The subject of the second sentence is “his essays” a plural noun. As such in order to subject verb agreement we need to use the present tense of indicate as our answer. In addition, we use the present tense to follow the parallel language rule and with statements of fact, like in the first sentence, “suggest”, we also use the present tense in the second sentence. And again, we use the present tense in English to indicate fact, regardless of when the materials were created. If it is true, it is true.
12. c. students’ and there is the answer. The choice for this is because of the necessity of appropriate subjects to correlate with the possessive pronoun (or sometimes called possessive adjective). In this case the use of the apostrophe ‘ after the s in students, means there are a plural number of students who have that success and that the possessive pronoun that should be used is their. If we used his or her like in answer d, it would be incorrect, because him or her would need the subject to be singular with the apostrophe before the s, like student’s, and that is not the case here.
13. d. school’s and Blackstone’s. The major point to follow on here is that school determines which choices we can make. There is nothing to indicate a plural number of schools and there is no possessive in a, so be is out as well. C. looks like it could be an answer, but d is best as it gives ownership with the use of the singular possessive noun + ‘s and Blackstones commentaries is also appropriate and gives possession of the commentaries to this noun identified as Blackstone.
14.b. is incorrect. Bill’s and Mary’s is not an appropriate use of the possessive in English. As a rule when we need to use the possessive “s” in a sentence and the subject is split among proper nouns like Bill and Mary, we do not apply the possessive “s” to both nouns. We put the “s” with the noun closest to the noun that is owned. It sounds bad and imagine if there or four people owned something then the sentence would sound very odd with an “s” after everybody’s name.
15. d. is the answer. b. Sometimes we make contractions in English, making noun plus the be verb, so lawyer’s could be “lawyer is”, but that does not make sense here. With a. there is no possession, so no need for s + ‘. Neither a nor b are correct, therefore c is not good. The answer is d, because d tells us that the lawyers frequent that bar.
16. c is the answer. The use of quotations is to indicate directly what someone said, often called reported speech. What is said needs to be in quotations. As it is a question, it is appropriate to end the quote with a question mark and then continue the sentence/idea of reported speech by continuing with who asked or said that question.
17. b is the answer. The construction of the sentence again follows the conventions of reported speech. The commas break up the sentence into the parts of action, such that the first part tells us the context of the reported speech, then the action of the subject follows the first comma with exclaimed and then after that another comma, with the quotation stating what she exclaimed.
18. a is the best answer. Depending on the style, people will bold, highlight, underline book or story titles. Here they have chose to put it into quotations. The other answers do not put the quotations into the sentence in any meaningful way. We would only put them around the title of the story or book, not the authors name. And this sentence is not reported speech, like the previous two, it is what somebody said, but it does not have the necessary I said or I told her, conventions necessary to make the whole sentence in quotations.
I'm gonna write for A Dream Within a Dream because Poe was my old English teacher's celebrity crush :)
When Poe says "take this kiss upon the brow," it's clear that he's in the middle of saying goodbye to someone- specifically, someone he feels a lot of love for. He claims that it seems his experiences with this woman were part of a dream, which makes me think he WISHES it was a dream to lessen the heartache of her leaving. He attempts to hold onto the sand with all of his strength, yet it still slips through the cracks between his fingers. This symbolizes the inevitability of her departing, regardless of how much he pleads for her to stay. It reminds me a lot of a song called Fall Down, Never Get Back Up Again by La Dispute, where a man's lover is torn from his grasp by the sea and he never recovers. The imagery in that song is beautiful.
The answer is: mostly likely B
The author uses a variety of imagery in this poem to convey to the reader what autumn is like. This can be seen in the quote, “With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, and fill all fruit with ripeness to the core.” Fruit vines, moss’d cottage-trees and ripe fruit are only a few pieces of visual imagery in this poem. Vivid examples such as these paint a picture in the reader’s mind, and inspires their own personal connections with the season of autumn. There is a mixture of auditory, gustatory, visual, olfactory and tactile imagery in the poem. Though whatever kind of imagery it may be, the purpose is to get the reader to experience the flavours of autumn through this poem. The author does an excellent job of connecting with the reader by giving detailed examples of how the world changes in the season of autumn. As well as describing popular flora and fauna the audience would be familiar with such as swelling gourds and lambs that bleat. The poem’s central idea is the season of autumn, and it is thoroughly described with imagery that pertains to the five senses.
This is my attempt at it! I didn't understand some of the words, they seem almost Shakespearean. I assumed the poem was discussing autumn because of its title, and also some of the visual descriptions. My answer is just basically what I analyzed from the poem and how I think the various kinds of imagery would appeal to an audience.
