Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    TRUE OR FALSE: Literature came from the Latin word which means letter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true. The word "literature" indeed came from the Latin word "litera," which means "letter" or "character."

Therefore, the connection between literature and the Latin word for "letter" is accurate.

    TRUE OR FALSE: An epic is a prose form because it tells a story.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    An epic is not a prose form because it tells a story. An epic is a long narrative poem that typically involves heroic deeds and important events in a culture or society. It is characterized by its elevated language, formal structure, and poetic devices such as meter and rhyme. Prose, on the other hand, refers to ordinary written or spoken language without the use of poetic devices. Therefore, an epic is not a prose form but a form of poetry.

Shakespeare wrote a total of 154 sonnets, which are highly regarded for their poetic beauty and emotional depth. They explore themes of love, beauty, time, and mortality, among others. Each sonnet is a self-contained poem, showcasing Shakespeare's mastery of language and his ability to convey complex ideas and emotions in a concise and structured format.

    TRUE OR FALSE:: A eulogy should be recited and dedicated to a person on his or her birthday celebration.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A eulogy is a speech or tribute given at a funeral or memorial service to honor and remember the deceased. It is not appropriate to recite a eulogy and dedicate it to a person on their birthday celebration, as it is a time of joy and celebration rather than mourning and remembrance. Eulogies are typically reserved for somber occasions where the focus is on honoring the life and legacy of the departed individual.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Explanation
    A news article is not fictional literature because it is based on real events and provides factual information about current events, people, or issues.

      False

    Correct Answer

    TRUE OR FALSE: The line "I will cross the oceans for you, I will go and bring you the moon" is a metaphor

    • A.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The line "I will cross the oceans for you, I will go and bring you the moon" is not a metaphor. A metaphor is a figure of speech that compares two unrelated things without using "like" or "as." In this line, there is no comparison being made, but rather a statement of extreme devotion and willingness to do anything for someone. Therefore, it is not a metaphor.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • A.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine" is not a simile because it does not use the words "like" or "as" to make a comparison. It is actually an example of a metaphor, where the speaker is comparing someone to sunshine without using explicit comparison words.

    A. True
    Explanation

    A hyperbole is a figure of speech that uses exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally. It is used to create emphasis or make a point in a more dramatic or humorous way. By stating that a hyperbole is a figure of speech that shows exaggeration, the answer correctly identifies the defining characteristic of a hyperbole.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Literature includes various forms of artistic expression, including written works such as novels, poems, and plays. However, it also encompasses filmed adaptations of literary works, such as movies or TV shows, which bring the written words to life visually.

    This pair is a prose form of literature.

    • A.

      Ode and epic

    • B.

      Novel and short stories

    • C.

      Essay and sonnet

    • D.

      News report and soliloquy

    Correct Answer
    B. Novel and short stories
    Explanation
    The pair "novel and short stories" is a prose form of literature because both of them are written in a narrative style using paragraphs and sentences, rather than verse or poetry. Novels are longer works of fiction that tell a complex story with developed characters and multiple plotlines. Short stories, on the other hand, are brief works of fiction that focus on a single plot or theme and typically have fewer characters and a simpler structure. Both of these forms of literature are written in prose, making them the correct answer for this question.
