". . this captain had on him the stern impression of a scene in the greys of dawn of seven turned faces, and later a stump of a top-mast with a white ball on it that slashed to and fro at the waves, went low and lower, and down." this line is an example of a. rising action. b. climax. c. exposition. d. resolution
I am pretty sure it is C. Exposition because the scene is explaining background information on why the Captain was injured.
The answer could possibly be B though as the author seems to be starting the story with the injured captain as the climax...
1) The correct answer here is D)
The simile that compares the boat to a bucking broncho strengthened the tense mood.
Paragraph 9 reads:
The boat "pranced and reared, and plunged like an animal" repeatedly over "walls of water" repeatedly.
This sort of comparison forces one to think about the kind of attention channels at riding wild and dangerous animal.
The simile communicates great danger to the reader of the possibility of the boat to crash or capsize at any given moment as it slams against the waters and into the huge waves before them.
2) The correct answer is D)
The phrase "The mind of the master of a vessel is rooted deep in the timbers of her" alludes that the Captain of the vessel regardless of how long they have commanded such vessel.
3) The excerpt which confirms the relentlessness and indifference of the ocean is given below
"A particular danger of the sea is the fact that after successfully getting through one wave, you discover that there is another behind it. The next wave is just as nervously anxious and purposeful to overturn boats."
judge is the correct answer
