I'm pretty sure Q2 you must match the genres of the question, but you CAN include all 3?(Original post by The Empire Odyssey)
For Q1 you will be given two extracts from the same genre. So two extracts from poetry for example. This means you are only allowed to refer your wider reading in poetry, NO drama, NO prose!
For Q2, the other two extracts will be on the remaining unseen genres. So continuing from my example above, that would be prose and drama. This means you are allowed to reference from your wider reading in prose and drama, no poetry!
When you are comparing for Q2, you can compare the unseen drama text to one of your wider reading in prose and vice versa. That is completely fine. If you do this, make sure your analysis is strong in terms of genre differences, such as comparing drama misc-en-scene (lighting, stage directions, etc) with settings in a prose novel.
Hope this helps.
