Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these is not important in writing?

    • A.

      Semantics 

    • B.

      Vocabulary 

    • C.

      Grammar 

    • D.

      Speaking 

    Correct Answer
    D. Speaking 
    Explanation
    Speaking is not important in writing because writing and speaking are two different forms of communication. Writing involves using written words to convey a message, while speaking involves using spoken words. While grammar, vocabulary, and semantics are important in writing to ensure clarity and coherence, speaking skills are not necessary in the context of writing. Writing allows for careful planning, revision, and editing, while speaking is more spontaneous and immediate. Therefore, speaking is not a crucial aspect when it comes to writing.

It is the most common form of writing and is used in everyday communication, such as novels, essays, and letters.

    • D.

      Correspondence

This system involved using wedge-shaped marks on clay tablets to represent words and sounds, making it the earliest known form of writing.

This structure helps to organize the plot and make it easier for the audience to follow the story. Therefore, plays are the correct answer as they are the specific form of literature that is written in acts and scenes.
