I have a question regarding the 'how' exam question. When asked, 'how does the writer show.....?' I know I need to spot the writer's language techniques, so if I spot comparison for example, there was a technique I spotted in which the writer was comparing the narrator becoming a miner in South Africa to him becoming a miner in Johannesburg. Can I pick out this and say that the writer compares [.....] becoming a miner in South Africa to Johannesburg so that reader's can better understand what he went through to become a miner. Then give a quote each to show the difference and say, 'he experienced more hardship to become a miner in Johannesburg.' I don't know whether I'm okay to do this.
Thank you for your reply. The question asks, "Hiw does their writer show what Obey went through to become a miner". I saw that the writer compared him becoming a miner in South Africa to johanasburg and noticed that he experienced more difficulty in Johanasburg. Is this answer enough for a 5 mark question it should I put in more?
For a 5 marks question, you should have a bit of analysis and a link too. The part I bolded does not sound like analysis, so you need to expand on that. Why does the thing you picked show that?
