Question 11 (B) Important

The story, A Triumph of Surgery is a powerful example of the importance of saying “no”. Explain.

Answer:

The story shows the importance of saying "no" to things that are harmful or unnecessary. Mrs Pumphrey should have said "no" to overfeeding and spoiling Tricki. Mr Herriot said "no" to Mrs Pumphrey's requests and demands. He also said "no" to Tricki's begging for food.

Saying "no" saved Tricki's life.

Step-by-Step explanation by Teachoo:

  •    The introductory sentence is "The story shows the importance of saying "no" to things that are harmful or unnecessary." It restates the main idea of the question in a concise way. 🙅‍♂️
  •   The body sentence is "Mrs Pumphrey should have said "no" to overfeeding and spoiling Tricki. Mr Herriot said "no" to Mrs Pumphrey's requests and demands. He also said "no" to Tricki's begging for food." It gives three examples that support the main idea. They are taken from the story. 🐕
  •    The concluding sentence is "Saying "no" saved Tricki's life." It wraps up the paragraph by emphasizing the main idea and its outcome. 🙌

 The answer uses transition words to connect the sentences and make them flow smoothly. 💯
