Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay. The question is asking you to find the "connotation" oh mountain in this sentence, right? Do you understand connotation or no?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A connotation is a commonly understood subjective cultural or emotional association that some word or phrase carries, in addition to the word's or phrase's explicit or literal meaning, which is its denotation. A connotation is frequently described as either positive or negative, with regards to its pleasing or displeasing emotional connection. For example, a stubborn person may be described as being either strongwilled or pigheaded; although these have the same literal meaning (stubborn), strongwilled connotes admiration for the level of someone's will (a positive connotation), while pigheaded connotes frustration in dealing with someone (a negative connotation). i used wikipedia

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Good. :) So the connotation of "mountain" in this sentence is negative. The adjectives make it negative; making Edward's body seem "dense, slow, and awkward." This is not a good thing! Negative connotation! :) Do you understand this a little more now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh, okay, hee hee. OKay, so you're looking for the answer that is NOT a negative connotation. We gave you the definitions for the other words.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so the first 3 words have a negative vibe to them because you wouldnt want to be called plump ( which A and C are doing)and then you wouldnt want to be called rough ( which B is saying) so those are negative and D is a positive thing becasue its calling something impressive
