following literary terms best describes the narration of this story

00:34

And here the five dollars were up kids lancers What

00:41

All right so we've got to figure out which narrative

00:44

mode this story uses Our job has made a lot

00:47

simpler by the fact that two of the choices don't

00:50

describe narrative modes at all We'll take choice B please

00:54

Constance is not related Teo bathroom habits are having issues

00:57

with them Instead It's a literary device in which continent

01:02

sounds are repeated here's An example The cockroaches munched in

01:07

a carton of crunchy croton Yeah it's Kind of like

01:10

a liberation but civic just cancel it's like clown college

01:15

Option d is not a narrative mode either Her son

01:19

if ic ation is a literary device in which something

01:22

that's not human is given human qualities For example we

01:25

might say the sun glared down on us like a

01:28

human blaring or work kicked our butt yesterday But yeah

01:34

well in this story we have a human who's turned

01:37

into a big bug but that's not personification actually since

01:41

there's a human taking on non human characteristics that we

01:44

have the opposite of personification like insect defecation Animal ification

01:50

Now all right so now we've narrowed it down to

01:53

a c narrator is the person telling the story And

01:56

there are a few narrative modes in which he or

01:58

she can tell it Well first person narration is easy

02:02

to spot because the narrator uses the pronoun i whenever

02:06

a bunch of eyes are staring at us from attacks

02:08

when there's a good chance we're in first person or

02:11

we're looking at a buck anyway if gregor we're narrating

02:14

the story about himself then we'd be in the first

02:17

person territory for sure but that's not the case here

02:20

so option a has to go and that makes see

02:23

limited on nish int the correct answer If the narrator

02:27

uses he or she to describe the actions and thoughts

02:29

of the story's characters the narration is in third person

02:33

Well third person narration can be totally on Nisshin knows

02:36

everything about all care or limited on nish it on

02:40

Lee knows the inner workings of specific character and since

02:44

we don't get to peek inside the brains of anybody

02:46

but greg or we know our narrator is limited But

02:49

we know if the narrator keeps trying here she can 00:02:51.93 --> [endTime] get past those with eyes on the prize
