I have two questions. Please answer me..
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."
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.
