Consider the excerpt from 'The Tale of Two Cities' by Charles Dickens: 'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair...'. Now, imagine if this text was adapted into a film. How might the director use visual and auditory elements to convey the contrasts and dichotomies presented in this excerpt? In your answer, consider the fundamental principles of film adaptation and the specific features of the text.

In the excerpt from the novel 'Lily's Adventures', Lily's teacher is described as an 'advocate for analytical thinking'. The teacher is often seen doing an 'analysis' of various topics in class. Based on these examples from the text and using your understanding of how word changes can indicate different meanings or parts of speech, identify the part of speech and the meaning of the words 'advocate' and 'analysis' in this context. How do these words contribute to our understanding of Lily's teacher?
