Compare how language is used for effect - what does this even mean!Watch
For example, if the writer has repeated the word 'miserable' or 'sickly', how does that portray the writer's opinion? What negative connotations does it have?
If a phrase such as 'the poor, powerless, pained soul' is used, what images does that make you see? There's alliteration here and all the adjectives are emphasising one thing - the bad condition that the soul is in. It makes you feel sympathetic towards whoever the writer is talking about.
That's what you basically need to be doing, picking out key words or phrases and then stating what type of language technique it is and linking it to what the question is asking you. So in this case, you will be talking about the effect it has on the reader.
