Which of these phrases uses parallelism to create a sad tone

Answers

I called for Sadie. Sadie didn't answer. I waited up for Sadie. Sadie didn't come home.

B) I called for Sadie. Sadie didn't answer. I waited up for Sadie. Sadie didn't come home.

Explanation:

Parallelism is the repetition of a grammatical form within a sentence or text. Options A and B show this literary device quite distinctly: sentence A uses simple present tense verbs, and B, simple past tense verbs.  

However, a sad tone is created only in B.  

Additionally, in B, the first and third sentences are affirmative statements while the second and fourth sentences are negative statements. This pattern can also be considered part of parallelism created by the writer.  

B. I called for die. Sadie didn't answer. I waited up for Sadie. Sadie didn't come home.         - APEX

As you may know, when parallelism exists in writing, what it means is that the sentences/clauses/phrases/words are similarly structured. For instance, for a list to be parallel, all words will be the same part of speech. Let’s look at an example. (Note the "ing" suffix.)


NOT PARALLEL

I like sleeping, to run, and laughing.


PARALLEL

I like sleeping, running, and laughing.


Beyond the word level, as noted, parallel structure can happen even at the sentence level. Thus, for sentences to be parallel, they will need to contain similar word patterns. Let’s look at the answer for this question:


Angel told me it was over.

She told me she is over me.

She told me to get over her.


Note how each sentence begins with a noun/pronoun, followed by “told me,” which is a verb then pronoun (or subject). It is this structure that makes these sentences parallel and helps to highlight the feeling/tone of sadness.

D. Today was the last day Max and I would walk to school together. The last day we would have lunch together.

Explanation:

Parallelism occurs when the same grammatical structure is used throughout the text. In option D, the author repeats the same construction (the last day) to establish a melancholic tone over Max's future departure.

The rest of the choices are incorrect because either they do not possess parallelism or they do not create a sad tone.

idk because idk the options
