6 Multiple choice questions

  1. is a comparison of two unlike things not using "like" or "as": e.g., "Time is money."
  2. is the central character of a drama, novel, short story, or narrative poem. Conversely, the antagonist is the character who stands directly opposed to the protagonist.
  3. is the telling of a story in writing or speaking.
  4. is the sequence of events or actions in a short story, novel, play, or narrative poem.
  5. is the use of words that mimic the sounds they describe: e.g., "hiss," "buzz," and "bang." When onomatopoeia is used on an extended scale in a poem, it is called imitative harmony.
  6. occurs when a situation turns out differently from what one would normally expect-though often the twist is oddly appropriate: e.g., a deep sea diver drowning in a bathtub is ironic.
