Would you please through a reason show me which of the bold parts related to the sentence below? Why don't we call it conflict?

comparison contrast conflict

Although in poor health, she continue to carry out her duties.

I'd use carry on which fits better in your example.

In contrast with her poor health she continues to carry on her duties.

That is she doesn't stop doing her duties regardless of her illness.

  • I think the question is whether the sentence is using a comparison, contrast, or conflict.

  • @mkennedy,That's correct, and my answer says it is describing a contrasting situation. Nevertheless a slight note of comparison and conflictual status can be drawn as well but the main idea is of contrast. Commented Jul 11, 2015 at 7:14
