in 2004 past paper there's two questions and you have to choose JUST ONE to do:

1: in act 1, when sheila is commenting on the fact that Gerald 'never came near' her 'all last summer' and he is protesting that he 'was awfully busy at the works all that time', Mrs Birling advises: 'Now, Sheila, don't tease him. When you're married you'll realise that men with important work to do sometimes have to spend nearly all their time and energy on their business. You'll have to get used to that, just as I had.'

How does the play present the attitudes of women of the time? you should look closely at language and actions in your answer.

2: How does priestly make social criticisms of the time in this play? You should look closely at language, character and events in your answer.

normally one question will be about a character and the other question will be about a theme. hope this helped :) good luck
