Pasting your questions in here for easier reference -- Are my answers correct? Can someone please check these for me?? 1. Identify the underlined element in the following passage from the novel Bleak House by Charles wingspanens. “Fog everywhere. Fog flowing up the river, among green banks and meadows; fog rolling down the river, where it hangs defiled among the ships and buildings of a great (and dirty) city.” A .Infinitive phrase B. Prepositional phrase C. Sentence fragment D. Absolute phrase I can't decide on whether its B or D?? Can someone help me? 2. The use of phrases, fragments, and punctuation can influence the mood of a passage; keeping this in mind, how would you describe the mood of the following passage? “Fog on the Essex marshes, fog on the Kentish heights. Fog creeping into the cabooses of collier-brigs; fog lying out on the yards, and hovering in the rigging of great ships; fog drooping on the gunwales of barges and small boats. Fog in the eyes and throats of ancient Greenwich pensioners, wheezing by the firesides of their wards; fog in the stem and bowl of the afternoon pipe of the wrathful skipper; fog cruelly pinching the toes and fingers of his shivering little ’prentice boy on deck.' A. Dreary B. Delighted C. Terrified D. Optimistic I think this one is A? is that right? 3. The use of phrases, fragments, and punctuation can affect the pace and mood of a text. How would you describe the pace of the following passage? “Yet, mad am I not—and very surely do I not dream. But to-morrow I die, and to-day I would unburden my soul. My immediate purpose is to place before the world, plainly, succinctly, and without comment, a series of mere household events. In their consequences, these events have terrified—have tortured—have destroyed me.” A. Slow B. Fast C. Both fast and slow D. Average I think this one is B? Is that correct?
For #1, what is the "underlined element" in the passage? It didn't come through in your original question. For #2, you got it. That's a pretty dreary scene. For #3 . . . hmmm, interesting. I wouldn't say it was fast. Certain elements slow the reader down. Those bits following or between the dashes, for instance. And the way that the series of phrases in the second sentence interrupts the flow of the core sentence ("My immediate purpose is to place before the world . . . a series of mere household events.") Plus the phrasing of that core sentence is slow, isn't it? And yet I wonder whether that interrupting series would itself be considered fast? ". . . plainly, succinctly, and without comment" -- I think you could consider that fast. I'm not certain on this one. I'd need to see the class materials that teach this point to be sure what aspects of the passage the teacher is considering fast and slow. I have my own ideas, but they may not be canonical.
