The following excerpt is from “Bread and the Land” by Jeffery Renard Allen, published in 2008. In this passage, a young boy, Hat
ch, confronts his grandmother, Blunt. Blunt has recently moved to town and has met Hatch for the first time. Read the passage carefully. Then, in a well-written essay, analyze how Allen uses literary elements and techniques to convey what Hatch’s interactions with other characters reveal about him
Starting from the introducing words that later lead to the PLOT, that is the statement; "Where’s Blunt?" Shows the style In which Hatch impatiently wants to meet with Blunt. We can see how Allen uses literary elements and techniques to convey what Hatch’s interactions with other characters reveal about him.
Also, Allen make use of FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE in the book by making use of the sentences such as the two sentences below;
(1). "He spoke to a moving window."
(2). '' Mamma spoke from the dark cavelike inside".
The blinking of the eyes shows Blunt's behavior and the use of "She was sposed..." Shows Hatch character that is to say the use of REPETITION.
1. The time difference between the arrival of the first P-Wave and S-Wave would be less than 4 minutes.
S waves are slower than P waves, even if emitted at the same time. In this case, we can say that if a station is located close to the earthquake epicenter, the station would receive these waves quickly. The P wave would be received first, since it has a higher speed, the S wave would arrive soon. As you did not provide the times when each wave was emitted, we cannot accurately state the time when each wave would be perceived by the station. However, as the station is close to the earthquake, we can say that the time difference between P and S waves would be seconds, that is, less than 4 minutes.
