Flashcard 8 - High School English I: Reading Flashcard Set for the STAAR test


The correct answer is:

juxtapose (the verb form) or juxtaposition (the noun form)


Juxtaposition is just a fancy way of setting two or more things up for comparison and contrast by a reader. The test may give you a statement and ask you to determine which answer option “best reflects the juxtaposition” of two concepts—it’s just asking you to correctly identify what is being compared or contrasted between the two texts.
