An event in a story that’s exactly the reverse of what was expected is an example of:

B. character action.

C. dramatic sarcasm.

D. subtle conflict.

A

Answer: A. situational irony.

Situational irony is the irony of something happening, totally different from just what was expected. A good example of situational irony is the burning down of a fire station. Situational irony is used oftentimes by writers in order to convey a particular message to the audience; writers use situational irony with the purpose of creating a surprise twist or in the communication of a moral.
