What's Sacred to You?

Read this excerpt from All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Remarque:

"Good God, what is there that is sacred to me?- such things change pretty quickly with us."

What is this passage an example of?

a) allusion

b) tone
c) metaphor
d) external conflict

Scroll down for the answer.


a) allusion isn't the answer because nothing famous is referred to
b) Tone is the answer because the character's response is very disillusioned and depressed

c) metaphor isn't the answer because you aren't comparing one thing to another
d) external conflict isn't the answer because the two characters aren't in conflict here

Thanks to the ultra smart Miranda from Mrs. Stamey's class for this question.  Based on the quality of this question, I'm sure she is a die hard Carolina fan!  Go Heels!
