## anonymous one year ago A prominent rhetorical feature of this paragraph is... *paragraph inside!* A. rhetorical questions. B. logical fallacies. C. hyperbole. D. factual details. E. appeals to authority. **I'm thinking it's hyperbole or factual details, but not very sure! Thanks! @whitemonsterbunny17

Lough Ness, though not twelve miles broad, is a very remarkable diffusion of water without islands. It fills a large hollow between two ridges of high rocks, being supplied partly by the torrents which fall into it on either side, and partly, as is supposed, by springs at the bottom. Its water is remarkably clear and pleasant, and is imagined by the natives to be medicinal. We were told, that it is in some places a hundred and forty fathoms deep, a profundity scarcely credible, and which probably those that relate it have never sounded. Its fish are salmon, trout, and pike.

Well, we can eliminate rhetorical questions because there are no questions in the paragraph.

I don't think it's hyperbole b/c it's meant more to persuade and be taken literally than not to be taken literally. It's not factual details because there aren't really facts that are proven. The last one doesn't make sense at all with the paragraph.

ohh okay! so it should be logical fallacies?

7. Whitemonsterbunny17

I believe so, yes. Because logical fallacies are misleading arguments, which is what some of the wording in this paragraph use. Does that make sense?

8. anonymous

ohh yes that makes sense!! thanks so much!!:D
