    Q2: you need to analyse the EFFECT of the language and the purpose it has. If there are similes/metaphors these will be useful to use as your choice of 4 because there is more to write about them. Also make sure you use single words or short phrases so you can really show what you're talking about; waffling on will not demonstrate your understanding of the passage

    For question 2 literally just follow this: Select your points->Identify them (what technique is it?)->analyse the words in closer detail->describe the effect (think/see/feel)

    This is an example my teacher gave us:"A metaphor and simile are used 'waving its curved snake of a tail as if making a victory salute.' The tail is seen as a bendy, venomous creature moving alarmingly from side to side, then raised in a sharp, strong movement. A perception of an evil and malicious celebration as if the beast is superior is being created."

    The structure for question 2 is not PEA its EA so you give the evidence and analyse it by the image caused
