    Correct Answer
    A. Dynamo
    Explanation
    A dynamo is an electric generator that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. It typically consists of a rotating coil of wire, called an armature, that is placed between the poles of a magnet. As the armature rotates, it cuts through the magnetic field lines, inducing an electric current in the wire. This current can then be used to power electrical devices or stored in batteries for later use. Therefore, a dynamo is the correct answer as it accurately describes an electric generator.

  • 13. 

    Parasitic disease

    • A.

      Parasitical

    • B.

      Coccidiosis

    • C.

      Malignity

    Correct Answer
    B. Coccidiosis
    Explanation
    Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease caused by the protozoan parasite called coccidia. It commonly affects animals, especially poultry and livestock, and can cause severe intestinal infection. The term "parasitical" is related to parasites, but it does not specifically refer to coccidia or coccidiosis. "Malignity" refers to the quality of being malignant or harmful, which is not directly related to parasitic diseases. Therefore, the correct answer is coccidiosis, as it is the only term directly associated with the given context of a parasitic disease.

    Correct Answer
    B. Canvas
    Explanation
    The word "canvas" is the correct answer because it is the only word in the given options that is related to the act of requesting support. "Canvas" can be used as a verb meaning to solicit or ask for support or assistance. The other words, "manoeuvre" and "embolden," do not directly relate to the act of requesting support. Therefore, "canvas" is the most suitable answer.

    • C.

      Satirical Allegory

    Correct Answer
    A. Fable
    Explanation
    A fable is a short story, usually in prose or verse, that uses animals as characters to convey moral lessons to the readers. These animals are given human qualities, such as the ability to speak and think, to make the story relatable and engaging. Fables are often used to teach moral values and life lessons in a simple and entertaining way. They are different from fiction and satirical allegory because they specifically focus on teaching morals through animal characters.

      Satirical Allegory

    Correct Answer
    B. Fiction
    Explanation
    Fiction is the correct answer because it refers to a form of narrative that deals with events that are not factual. Fictional stories are created by the author's imagination and can include elements of fantasy, adventure, romance, or any other genre. Unlike non-fiction, which is based on real events and facts, fiction allows for the exploration of imaginary worlds and characters. Fables and satirical allegories are specific types of fiction that use storytelling techniques to convey moral or social messages.

    • B.

      Fiction

    • C.

      Satirical Allegory

    Correct Answer
    C. Satirical Allegory
    Explanation
    A satirical allegory is a symbolic representation of truths or generalizations about human existence that uses humor and irony to criticize or mock certain aspects of society or human behavior. It often employs fictional characters or events to convey its message in a lighthearted or humorous manner. Fables and fiction, on the other hand, may also use symbolic representations but may not necessarily have the satirical or critical elements present in a satirical allegory. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is Satirical Allegory.

    A comparasion of two things using the words like or as

    • A.

      Alliteration

    • B.

      Similie

    • C.

      Metaphor

    Correct Answer
    B. Similie
    Explanation
    Simile is the correct answer because it involves comparing two things using the words "like" or "as". It is a figure of speech that helps to create vivid imagery by drawing similarities between two different objects or ideas. Unlike a metaphor, which directly states that one thing is another, a simile uses the words "like" or "as" to make the comparison more explicit. Alliteration, on the other hand, refers to the repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of words in a sentence or phrase.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    A literary technique where the writer utilizes repeating sounds

    • A.

      Alliteration

    • B.

      Repetition

    • C.

      Metaphor

    Correct Answer
    A. Alliteration
    Explanation
    Alliteration is a literary technique where the writer utilizes repeating sounds. It involves the repetition of initial consonant sounds in a series of words or phrases. This technique is used to create rhythm, emphasize certain words or ideas, and add musicality to the writing. By repeating sounds, the writer can make the text more memorable and engaging for the reader.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    A comparison of two things, by the writer depicting that one thing is something else

    • A.

      Alliteration

    • B.

      Similie

    • C.

      Metaphor

    Correct Answer
    C. Metaphor
    Explanation
    A metaphor is a figure of speech that compares two things by stating that one thing is something else. It is a way for the writer to create a vivid image or convey a deeper meaning by using implied or indirect comparisons. Unlike a simile, which uses "like" or "as" to make the comparison, a metaphor directly states that one thing is another. In this case, the correct answer is metaphor because it matches the description given in the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Key words or phrases repeated for emphasis

    • A.

      Alliteration

    • B.

      Repetition

    • C.

      Rhetorical Question

    Correct Answer
    B. Repetition
    Explanation
    Repetition is the correct answer because it refers to the act of repeating words or phrases for emphasis. In this context, the key words or phrases are repeated to create a rhythmic and memorable effect. Alliteration, on the other hand, refers to the repetition of initial consonant sounds, while a rhetorical question is a figure of speech used to make a point rather than seek an answer. Therefore, repetition is the most appropriate term to describe the given scenario.

    Rate this question:

  • 22.

    • A.

      Alliteration

    • B.

      Repetition

    • C.

      Rhetorical Question

    Correct Answer
    C. Rhetorical Question
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Rhetorical Question" because a rhetorical question is a figure of speech where a question is asked, but no answer is expected or required. In this case, the question is posed to suggest an answer rather than to elicit a response. Alliteration refers to the repetition of initial consonant sounds, while repetition is the act of repeating something. However, neither of these terms accurately describes the given question.
