    The correct answer is Scancion. Scancion refers to the analysis of the metrical pattern of a poem, specifically focusing on the arrangement of stressed and unstressed syllables. Prosody is a broader term that encompasses the study of poetic elements such as rhythm, meter, and sound.

    B. Prose, poetry and drama use dramatization
    Explanation
    This answer correctly states that dramatization is used in prose, poetry and drama. Dramatization refers to the technique of presenting a story or events in a dramatic or theatrical way. Prose refers to written or spoken language in its ordinary form, while drama refers to a genre of literature that is meant to be performed on stage. Both prose and drama utilize dramatization to engage the audience and bring the story to life through dialogue, actions, and character interactions. Therefore, this answer accurately identifies the mediums in which dramatization is commonly employed.

    Explanation
    The climax is the point of highest tension or drama in a play, where the conflicts and tensions reach their peak. Both tragic and comic plays have a climax, although the outcomes may differ. In a tragic play, the climax often leads to a sad ending, where the conflicts are not resolved and the protagonist meets a tragic fate. In a comic play, the climax may lead to a happy ending, where the conflicts are resolved and the characters find joy or satisfaction. The climax is a crucial element in both types of plays as it creates suspense and determines the overall outcome.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Dialogue" because it refers to the verbal exchange between the protagonist and antagonist in a play. This interaction is crucial in driving the plot forward and revealing the characters' motivations, conflicts, and emotions. The dialogue allows the audience to understand the relationship dynamics and the central conflicts between the two characters, making it an essential element in a dramatic play.

In English sonnets, the most common meter is iambic pentameter, which consists of 10 syllables per line. Since there are 14 lines in a sonnet, multiplying 10 syllables by 14 lines gives us a total of 140 syllables.
