Now match the examiner's comments to the three example answers you have been given.


Now it's your turn!Using your knowledge of the question types on this part of the paper you are now going to answer three exam questions on the second text.


Question 4How many messages does Leo Marks have to decode?


Question 5it seemed safe to assume that with millions of guilders at stake the government-in-exile would use an unbreakable code, and I proceeded on that basis. And got nowhere.

In this example from lines 7 - 8 how does the writer use language to show how difficult it was to break the code?


Question 6Leo Marks attempts to engage the reader through the description of his relationship with 'the girls'.

Evaluate how successfully this is achieved.
