The Standards

Question 1 standard literary analysis

What does Falstaff intend to convey in his first three lines?

Using words like “God save thy Grace,” “my sweet boy,” and My king, my Jove” shows Falstaff’s close relationship with the King.

The correct answer is A

Question # 1Standard: Literary Analysis

Question 2 standard literary analysis

What does the following line suggest about the relationship between the King and Falstaff: “the tutor and feeder of my riots” ?

  • A tutor is a teacher but c is not the best choice because “feeder of my riots” suggests something other than “gentle” teaching and guidance.

  • The best answer is B because it suggests Falstaff was not only the king’s tutor but also taught the young prince how to be rebellious.

Question # 2Standard: Literary Analysis

Question 3 standard literary analysis

What literary device does “I speak to thee, my heart” contain?

  • Allusion: A reference to another piece of literature

  • Foreshadowing: A prediction of something to come

  • Metaphor: A direct comparison (correct answer) Falstaff addresses the king as his heart, a direct comparison that shows how close he feels their relationship is.

  • Parody: A work that pokes fun of something serious

Question #3Standard: Literary Analysis

Question 4 standard reading comprehension

What is the purpose of the line:“know the grave doth gape for thee thrice wider than for other men” ?

The King is saying the grave gapes (opens) three times (thrice) wider for Falstaff than for other men!

With this comment the King is trying to belittle (put down) Falstaff for being so fat.

The correct answer is B

Question #4Standard: Reading Comprehension

Question 5 standard literary analysis

What is the for thee thrice wider than for other men” ?tone of the King’s speech?

  • This time we are considering the whole passage – not just a line or two!

  • The King’s refusal to admit he knows Falstaff (“I know thee not, old man”), his put-downs, and his decision to “turn away from those that kept me company” prove that the King thinks he is superior to Falstaff and is “blowing him off” or dismissive.

  • D is the correct answer.

Question #5Standard: Literary Analysis

Question 6 standard literary analysis

What does the contrast between the number of lines the king speaks and the number of lines Falstaff speaks suggest?

The King has more lines because he is king and has more power than Falstaff!! He speaks and others listen. Notice how he speaks of himself in the first-person plural we! He really thinks he is important!!

The correct answer is A.

Question #6Standard: Literary Analysis

Question 7 standard reading comprehension

  • What argument does the writer use to support the use of ID cards?

  • The writer cites sources that say it is not illegal to require student ID use so A is not the correct answer.

  • The fact that ID use does not invade privacy is not the strongest argument for the use of ID’s.

  • The strongest argument the writer presents is that ID’s strengthen security and parents support their use. The security benefit is mentioned in every paragraph. The correct answer is C.

  • ID use may make attendance-taking easier, but it is not an argument used by this writer.

Question #7Standard: Reading Comprehension

Question 8 standard literary criticism

What effect would eliminating the examples criticizing mandatory ID policies have on the argument?

  • Eliminating the opposing argument weakens the paper because it’s like “burying your head in the sand”. A writer should always acknowledge the opposing argument and then provide evidence to refute or destroy that argument.

  • The correct answer is D.

Question #8Standard: Literary Criticism

Question 9 standard literary criticism

Should the writer eliminate the quote by the ACLU’s legal director?

  • Ms. Lieberman’s organization is concerned with an individual’s civil rights so when she goes on record saying that wearing ID’s is not a violation of a person’s rights, it is an example of a credible source that supports the writer’s argument. Keeping this quote adds credibility to the argument.

  • The correct answer is C.
