Read the given extracts and answer the questions for ANY ONE of the two, given.

A Usually, when school began, there was a great bustle, which could be heard out in the street, the opening and closing of desks, lessons repeated in unison, very loud, with our hands over our ears to understand better, and the teacher’s great ruler rapping on the table. But now it was all so still! I had counted on the commotion to get to my desk without being seen; but, of course, that day everything had to be as quiet as Sunday morning. Through the window I saw my classmates, already in their places, and M. Hamel walking up and down with his terrible iron ruler under his arm. I had to open the door and go in before everybody. You can imagine how I blushed and how frightened I was. (The Last Lesson)

List any two sensory details present in this extract.

 

Answer:

Two sensory details present in this extract are:

  • The sound of the opening and closing of desks, lessons repeated in unison, and the teacher's ruler rapping on the table.
  • The sight of the classmates in their places and the teacher walking up and down with his ruler under his arm.

Step-by-step explanation by Teachoo:

 

To answer this question, we need to find two examples of sensory details in the extract. We can do this by looking for words or phrases that appeal to one or more of the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, or touch .👂

  • One example of a sensory detail is the sound of the opening and closing of desks, lessons repeated in unison, and the teacher's ruler rapping on the table. This appeals to the sense of hearing and makes us hear the noise and commotion in the classroom.🔊
  • Another example of a sensory detail is the sight of the classmates in their places and the teacher walking up and down with his ruler under his arm. This appeals to the sense of sight and makes us see the quiet and orderly scene in the classroom.👀
