An example of verbal irony is:
A. Macbeth saying, "O, yet I do repent for my fury, that I did kill them."
B. Macduff referring to Lady MacBeth as "O gentle Lady."
C. Macduff saying "O horror, horror, horror."
D. the witches saying, "fair is foul and foul is fair."
I think it's D?
I disagree. Verbal irony is saying words that have opposite meanings.
When someone tells you something unbelievable, and you say, "Yeah! Right!" you're exhibiting verbal irony.
so the answer is B
Right. MacDuff did not believe that Lady MacBeth was a gentle lady.
Okay thanks :)
