reading the story and answer the question:

THE small locomotive engine, Number 4, came clanking, stumbling down from Selston with seven full waggons. It appeared round the corner with loud threats of speed, but the colt that it startled from among the gorse, which still flickered indistinctly in the raw afternoon, outdistanced it at a canter. A woman, walking up the railway-line to Underwood, drew back into the hedge, held her basket aside, and watched the footplate of the engine advancing. The trucks thumped heavily past, one by one, with slow inevitable movement, as she stood insignificantly trapped beneath the jolting black waggons and the hedge; then they curved away towards the coppice where the withered oak-leaves dropped noiselessly, while the birds, pulling at the scarlet hips beside the track, made off into the dusk that had already crept into the spinney. In the open, the smoke from the engine sank and cleaved to the rough grass. The fields were dreary and forsaken, and in the marshy strip that led to the whimsey*, a reedy pit-pond, the fowls had already abandoned their run among the shaggy black alders, to roost in the tarred fowl-house. The pit-bank loomed up beyond the pond, flames like red sores licking its ashy sides, in the afternoon's stagnant light. Just beyond rose the tapering chimneys and the clumsy black headstocks of Brinsley Colliery. The two wheels were spinning fast up against the sky, and the winding-engine rapped out its little spasms. The miners were being turned up.

    Yoyo,這份英文功課我們不可以直接幫你做。

    結果功課都是要你自己做,但我可以幫你分析一下題目:

    Contrasts suggested with images and objects finding images and objects that respectively fall into the following two columns of categories (e.g. Hotness, Coldness, Activeness, Stillness, Masculine, Feminine)

    利用兩行(分別以下的項目)去對比文中描述的影像和物件。

    Hotness(熱) vs Coldness(冷)

    Activeness(動) vs Stillness(靜)

    Masculine(男、剛強) vs Feminine(女、柔弱)
