Ponder about the parrot which shakes its head and sings when you walk through the door, bending its neck for the cozy touch of your fingers. Ponder about the cat that bends its back and moves on your shins as it makes a "meow" for dinner, and then gets onto your lap and softly purrs as you stroke its head. Consider how a dog madly wags its tail to see you, so excited when it hears the sound of your voice that it barks and jumps.

Which of the following questions might help you better understand the above paragraph?

A. How is a parrot unusual?
B. How are cats, dogs, and parrots similar?
C. How are persuasive appeals used in this paragraph?

I think either B or C.

  2. Can you explain why? I think C because the paragraph uses emotional appeals to get the reader interested in pets.
