1.He sprang to his feet and saw to starboard, and not a hundred yards from their heeling, pitching boat, a vast iron bulk like the blade of a plough tearing through the water, tossing it on either side in huge waves of foam that leaped towards the steamer, ______her paddles helplessly in the air, and then sucking her deck down almost to the waterline. ( The War Of The Worlds by Wells, H.G.)
2. At intervals we passed a wretched cabin, with a ____roof, and about its small fields and garden patches in an indifferent state of cultivation.( A Connecticut Yankee by Twain, Mark)
