Explain how the description of the devastation caused by the hailstorm reflects the sadness within Lencho, in A Letter to God?

Refer to the given lines, from the text -

Not a leaf remained on the trees. The corn was totally destroyed. The flowers were gone from the plants. Lencho’s soul was filled with sadness.

Answer:

The description of the hailstorm shows Lencho's sadness in "A Letter to God." The lines "Not a leaf remained on the trees. The corn was totally destroyed. The flowers were gone from the plants" show the destruction of his crop.

This makes Lencho feel sad and hopeless for his harvest.

Step-by-Step explanation by Teachoo:

  •    The introductory sentence is "The description of the hailstorm shows Lencho's sadness in "A Letter to God." It restates the main idea of the longer answer in a concise way. 🌧️
  •    The body sentence is "The lines "Not a leaf remained on the trees. The corn was totally destroyed. The flowers were gone from the plants" show the destruction of his crop." It quotes the evidence that supports the main idea . It is a shortened version of the evidence in the longer answer. 🌽
  •    The concluding sentence is "This makes Lencho feel sad and hopeless for his harvest." It explains the effect of the evidence on the main idea.
  •  The answer uses transition words to connect the sentences and make them flow smoothly. 💯
