  1. In the column A just describe a situation but it does not show an image and it does not contrast two ideas or situations, but in the column B and C we can see two situations with the fox and the nature that make you juxtapose it. It shows sensory images that you can feel, see and hear with the morning mist, the red fox and the fox’s hunt.

  2. in the first column is possible finding three different structures
    the first one is more cold and it doesn’t show an image
    The second one is a little warm but it is not enough
    But the last one represent a lot of things for example include details and this way the mesage become in more convincing.

  3. In the column A, we see how a red fox move through a field. It’s described with tall grass. Column B shows how a red fox create a strategy to hunt its prey. Finally column C shows and mixes the feeling of the red fox and the prey. Also shows the relevance of the nature in a hunt.

  4. In the column A we can see that actions are described, especially actions that the fox performs. In the column B we can also see actions that the fox performs but this time involves feelings and we can create an image of the sentences and in the last column we can see many possible titles for the previous sentences which are written in figurative way.

  5. In column A we can see actions that a common fox does in his environmet. In column B are described feelings about that fox using words like “enjoy” and also we can create an image of what the fox is doing. Finally in column C is used a kind of metaphor in order to express deeper feelings about the situation of the fox, metaphors like “golden grasses”.

  6. In column we can see different actions that a fox does in his native enviroment or natural life, I mean not being in captivity or in a zoo. In column B, wthere are feelings of the fox described, and in column C are types of metaphores, as “golden grasses”.

  7. Column A: This column mostly descrive the natural behaviour or the natural actions that the fox commonly perform in his natural enviroment.
    Column B: Complement the fox’s behaviour with some emotional hints.
    Column C: I think that is more related with the enviroment itself more than with the fox, is like the perspective of the own nature.
