ok so, according to the dictionary, verbal irony is irony in which a person says or writes one thing and means another, or uses words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of the literal meaning.
does that make sense so far?
Good. Now back to the question. Which one do you think it would be?
i think its B
Can you explain why?
Also, C sounds kinda weird. I've never read the book before but are you sure those are the exact words from the book?
oh wait, I'm sorry I misinterpreted it my bad
So, again why do you think it is B?
just a guess
OK. That's fine. Let's work it out together shall we?
You already know that irony is when events are words appear to be the opposite of reality. Verbal Irony is when words express something contrary to truth or someone says the opposite of what they really feel or mean. Verbal irony is often sarcastic.
Verbal irony is used in a variety of circumstances. It may be used in general conversation or also in media. Television sitcoms and movies often use verbal irony, as do many political pundits. Verbal irony is often stated in the form of a metaphor or simile. Comparisons and contrasts are used to create a visualization for the listener or reader.
I'll give you some examples: Soft like a brick Hard as putty Clear like dirt As pleasant as surgery Saying “Oh, fantastic!” when the situation is actually very poor As calm as a dog in heat One got in a car accident and said “Lucky me!”
Ok, well you know what metaphors and similes are, right?
so the last one?
hm... I've never read the book so I'm not entirely sure because none of these sound like verbal irony. However, if I did read the book I would get to know the characters and know what type of situation they're in. Did you read the book or is this just some random question on a test?
I think I need a little help here @radar
So, you've never read the book, correct?
it was the last one
Oh, I'm sorry did I get it wrong for you or did you pick the last one?
I wish I could've been of better help
