This resource comprises two different sample answers to the 2019 HSC Advanced English Module C question, which gave candidates a short paragraph from a novel and asked them to continue the piece. Candidates had to evoke a particular emotional response from readers, and could continue in an imaginative, persuasive, or discursive mode.
The first sample answer shows how the prompt paragraph could be continued in an imaginative/discursive vein, drawing on techniques from both modes and evoking a response of shock from the reader.
The second sample answer shows how the prompt could be continued in an imaginative/persuasive vein, also drawing on techniques from both modes and evoking a response of amusement and surprise from the reader. While the first answer continues the passage on the same level of fictiveness, the second answer treats the passage as a framed text and explicitly analyses it within the response.
