    Which chapter of The Great Gatsby do you think is most likely to come up?
    Also, which aspect of narrative do you think they will ask about in section B?

    6 is the only chapter that hasn't been used yet, so it's a chance it's going to be 6 but it may not be.
    I think it's unlikely for 2 or 7 but the rest have a chance to be put in there - they like go re-use chapters to annoy us.
    No idea for section B. There's a range of questions it could be so I don't think you can pin-point it.

    Hello,
    When people say 'shape meanings' that mean: how does this make us view a certain thing in a certain way?
    So, as an example: how does a novel with a first person narrative shape our view of events? So you could say: the first person narrative shapes the meaning of the novel because through this narrator we feel this certain way/see this certain thing which then makes us view this character/event in this way.
    Does this make sense?

    That makes sooooo much sense thanks,
    just to clarify though could I say that for example
    'the use of religious imagery shapes the meaning of the novel because through this we see the Patriot as a good and pure figure which causes us to reconsider our opinion of the severity and nature of his crime in comparison to his punishment.'
    Its about the Patriot by Robert Browning don't worry if your not studying it, just does the use of 'shape the meaning' make sense??
    thanks

    It's not a novel, it's a poem - I always say the opposite by mistake too!
    I think that's spot on, well done. I also really like your analysis.
