In Arthur Miller's The Crucible, act 2, lines 402–421, the stage directions indicate that John Proctor reached for the whip (lines 402404) to punish Mary for leaving the house when she was not supposed to and implying that she would be leaving every day from then on as her presence as an official was requested in the trials (lines 398-400). Elizabeth only interferes to convince Mary to promise not to leave the house again so that John doesn't whip her (lines 408-410). Because of this, we can infer that it was generally accepted that people would whip their servants as punishment for disobedience.

Solution 1

The British defeat of the Mahdist forces at Omdurman finally brought an end to the shameful and horrific slave trade. This sentence does not maintain a formal style and tone because it uses charged language

Explanation:

Writings with a formal style and tone are characterized for the use of impersonal language, and words and phrases that are precise and elegant. This style, then, is devoid of overly subjective opinions and of excessive adjectives that contribute to a charged language. The words “shameful” and “horrific” create a charged and subjective language in the sentence and make it informal.

Solution 2
C. uses charged language

Solution 1

In literary terms, the answer to the question: The image of a "disaster swallowing" would be an example of personification.

Explanation:

In literature there are many devices and techniques with which the writer may convey meaning and message to his readers and audience. One such device is personification, literally, giving human traits to inhuman situation, objects, or circumstances. When in this excerpt the writer speaks of a disaster, and gives the image of swallowing, it gives the object: disaster, an almost human quality, and makes the audience get thet image of a human mouth eating up something. It is also the imagery of something enormous, unstoppable and even horrific, that holds human qualities. This is the essence of personification.
