Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

The correct answer is C. Figurative language.

Explanation:

Figurative language is a literary device in which you use words with non-literal meaning in order to achieve a literary effect on the audience. There are several types of figurative language such as metaphor, personification, similes or hyperbole.

In this case, the author uses sweetness and light non-literally in order to express that before Mistress Hutchinson had arrived, he was happy and joyful. Mistress Hutchinson's arrival does not mean literally chaos, but it means that it brought changes to the narrator's life and he does not like it. Mistress Hutchinson becomes the personification of chaos for the narrator.

In The Necklace, which character stated, "You never go out, and this is such a fine opportunity." a)Madame Loisel b)Madame Forestier c)Monsieur Loisel

Answers

Answer:

c) Monsieur Loisel

Explanation:

In "The Necklace," Matilde's husband claims that it was difficult for him to get the invitation to the ball because they do not give away too many invitations to clerks. Besides, he believed she would be happy to see the entire official society there. However, Madame Loisel throws the invitation away, claiming that she has nothing to wear. Thus, instead of being grateful, she forces her husband to buy her a new dress, which shows that she is only interested in material things.

Mathilde’s husband stated that.

Text Evidence:

Instead of being delighted, as her husband hoped, she threw the invitation on the table with disdain, murmuring:

"What do you want me to do with that?"

"But, my dear, I thought you would be glad. You never go out, and this is such a fine opportunity. I had awful trouble to get it. Everyone wants to go; it is very select, and they are not giving many invitations to clerks. The whole official world will be there."

Literal language is usually found in all of the following except A. fiction. B. news articles. C. poetry. D. biographies.

Answers

I think the correct answer from the choices listed above is option C. Literal language is usually found in all of the following except poetry. Oftentimes, poetry conveys a different meaning from the literal meaning of the words involved in the work. Hope this answers the question.

The correct answer is C. Poetry

Explanation:

The term "literal language" refers to the type of language that follows the denotation of words or their dictionary meaning which means when you use the literal language you mean exactly what you said because you are using the meaning of words. On the opposite, in the case of "figurative language" words are used to convey a different meaning than their dictionary meaning, because of this figurative language prevails in the case of figures of speech that are widely used in poetry and similar to create complex meanings.

This implies, while literal language can be found biographies, news and articles because in this the information is completely transparent and the words are linked to their literal or dictionary meaning, in the case of poetry literal language is not commonly found but figurative language as poets use different figures of speech in which words have a different meaning to their conventional meaning.
