Tips on answering novel questions

Tips on answering novel questions
USE THIS FORMULA - I. M. E. J.
I - IDENTIFY WHAT THE QUESTION WANTS.
M - MAKE A STATEMENT
E - ELABORATE ON THE ANSWERS.
J - JUSTIFY THE ELABORATION BY GIVING TEXTUAL EVIDENCE FROM
THE NOVEL.

Example:
–Write about an incident that changes the life of a character in the story. Give evidence to support your answer.
Identify -
i. The character - Rudolf Rassendyll
ii. The incident - The first meeting with King Rudolf V, Sapt and
Fritz.
Make a statement -
An incident that changes the life of Rudolf Rassendyll in the
story is when Rassedyll meets King Rudolf V, Sapt and Fritz for
the first time...

Elaborate -
Answer the questions - Where, When and What happened?
Justify -
Answer the question - Why do you say so? using the evidence
from the text

REMEMBER:
The answer should be in the present tense. But if you answered in the past, make sure that all must be in the past tense/time.
