Answer:

A: I was talking to a friend about this the other day. I personally prefer to read physical books, not e-books because I love the smell and the sound of the pages turning. I think they are priceless objects. Books have a distinct smell and the feel of them in your hand is not the same as holding an e-reader of some kind. I also like to be able to write in a book if I want or take notes. I also believe that technology is taking over and someday books will no longer be printed. I think that having real books is important as they will have a totally unique value when this happens. That’s why I prefer to read physical books rather than electronic books on a digital device.

Answer:

Parallelism is the use of components in a sentence with similar grammatical structure, sound, meaning, or meter. It allows ideas to flow smoother and become more persuasive. It can be found in literature, speeches, and everyday conversation. For example: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Parallelism can be identified in the repetitive use of "It was..." and the traits of time which follow.
