There is a link below to the source (its source 1 for q1) and the question paper. I've attatched my answer to the question, as a pdf document. Edit: I'm not able to attach my answer so I'll email/pm it to you.

Is it for the non fiction paper? I'm only in year 11 myself but we've practised lots of these papers so I'd happily look at it if you pm

On q2 in the gcse aqa english language paper to get high marks, do you need to give alternative interpretations about the colors/presentation devices/headline/what words could mean? And on q4 its just language that is analysed right, not structure?

Q2 - Yeah, exactly that. The effects of linguistic and presentational devices, and then their links with the text.

(Q3 - Thoughts and feelings. Language can be analysed if it makes your argument stronger - which is basically always the case. For example, in one of the sources from a previous exam, it was written that a character 'spurred on' which highlights the feeling of desperation. A spur relates to an instrument used to urge a horse forward - expressing the notion of desperation further.)

Q4 - Linguistic devices used in each source and their effect - why they're used, their purpose, and whether or not they're used for the same reason in both texts. You could also write about how different devices are used, but for the same effect and purpose in each text. Structure is not really a necessary part of this answer .
