Question: On the other hand, trait anger is the “general inclination to experience and express anger without specific provocation”. These students are angry not in one or two situations, but often they are found angry and reactive. It is more of cognitive and seen as a personality trait. They perceive a wide variety of situations as negative and connected rather than perceiving them separately. High trait anger students involve in constant aggressive acts and bullying. They also experience high intensity of anger on a continuous level. Explain the use of the two conjunctions ‘and” and “but” in Paragraph 5.

In Paragraph 5, the conjunction "and" is used to connect related ideas or to add further information about the same topic. For instance, the phrase "often they are found angry and reactive" uses "and" to indicate that these two conditions often occur concurrently in high trait anger students. On the other hand, the conjunction "but" is used to introduce a contrasting or opposing idea, showing a shift or contradiction in the sentiment. An example in the text is "These students are angry not in one or two situations, but often they are found angry and reactive." Here "but" is used to contrast the expectation set in the first part of the sentence (that they are angry in one or two situations) with another reality (that they are often found angry and reactive). In summarizing, "and" is used in this paragraph to couple ideas together while "but" is used to contrast different ideas.
