English Reading Comprehension (Set-15)

English Reading Comprehension (Set-15) - for Class 9 and 10 (#readingcomprehension)(#eduvictors)(#class10English)

The word ‘comprehension’ signifies to completely comprehend the content utilizing one's insight.  A comprehension passage is a textual content set for checking out the reader’s potential to recognise (apprehend) the meaning being implied by means of the textual content and the subject matter of that unique passage. Questions based on a passage generally appear as a chronological relationship with the passage. Usually, the first question has the answer in the initial paragraphs and so on but if the answers are inferential then the complete answer might have to be gathered from various paragraphs and for this, one has to be thorough with the entire passage.


(SQP 2019)Read the following passage carefully:

1. Few guessed that this quiet, parentless girl growing up in New York City would one day become the First Lady of the United States. Even fewer thought she would become an author and lecturer and a woman much admired and loved by people throughout the world.

CBSE Class 9- 10 - English Writing Skills - Figures of Speech (#cbsenotes)(#eduvictors)

Figures of Speech

English Writing Skills
CBSE Class 9- 10 - English Writing Skills - Figures of Speech (#cbsenotes)(#eduvictors)

A figure of Speech, word or group of words used to give particular emphasis to an idea or sentiment. The special emphasis is typically accomplished by the user's conscious deviation from the strictly literal sense of a word, or from the more commonly used form of word order or sentence construction. From ancient times to the present, such figurative locutions have been extensively employed by orators and writers to strengthen and embellish their styles of speech and composition. A number of the more widely used figures of speech, some of which are also called tropes, follow. 

Anticlimax:
Anticlimax, a sequence of ideas that abruptly diminish in dignity or importance at the end of a sentence or passage, generally for satirical effect. The following sentence contains an illustration of anticlimax: 
Among the great achievements of Benito Mussolini's regime were the revival of a strong national consciousness, the expansion of the Italian Empire, and the running of the trains on time.” (Compare with the climax, below.) 

Antithesis:
Antithesis, a juxtaposition of two words, phrases, clauses, or sentences contrasted or opposed in meaning in such a way as to give emphasis to contrasting ideas. 
An example of antithesis is the following line by the English poet Alexander Pope: “To err is human, to forgive divine.”
