Yes I think you could, I don't have the play with me but I recall an early comment by Mr Birling saying about how there won't be a war or how the titanic won't sink, so this comment implying that he is right and the younger generation is wrong is ironic as he is the one who will turn out to be wrong, and because of when the play was performed (40s?) the audience will know that he is the one who is wrong, so yeah I would say that's dramatic irony.

thank you really helpful because my teacher said its not really dramatic irony but i said well to me it is because as you said they think they know more than the younger generation

also have you got any quotes you can remember to show how the inspector is supernatural

Sorry I don't have a copy of the play, but you might be able to find some in his character description near the beginning? (might be in the stage directions)

"Look at the pair of them - the famous younger generation who think they know it all, and they can't even take a joke"

you should memorise these (not like I did, it just diffused into my mind)
So do you know all the quotations for AIC? I'm still learning mine

-His name-'Goole'-pun on ghoul?
-Later revealed not be a real police officer
-Says biblical stuff such as 'we are all members of one body'. Presents him as manifestation of God
-intimate knowledge on Eva's life
-seems omnipotent(all knowing)
-warnings on future wars,'the time will soon come where if men do not learn their lesson then will be taught in fire and blood and anguish'

All I need to know is that I use the following pages as markers:

16-17 - Inspector's arrival / Birling's monologue
56/57 - Inspector's speech
64/65 - Reactions to the Inspector possibly being fake
Oh. Are you allowed a copy of the play in your exam? Mine is closed book

Yeah we get the play.. I can't imagine doing it without it tbh!
But surely with your photographic memory it shouldn't be a problem?

Nope. Any character and theme could come up
