    Thanks in advance.

    1) What is the meaning of 'in the figure' in the follwing sentence?
    "Let those sound groups floating on the wavy river in the figure flow downhill "

    2) What is the meaning of 'flight' in the follwing sentence?
    "In saying your words, imagine that they come out as if they were bounding lightly down a flight of stairs."

    Re: figure

    Disclaimer: I'm not a teacher.

    In this sentence, a figure is a graphic (an image, a photo, a diagram, or something). "In the figure" means the sentence is referring to a graphic in your textbook.

    A flight of stairs is a staircase from one floor or landing to the next one.
