What are some examples of situational irony in part 1 of To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee?
In To Kill a Mockingbird, situational irony occurs when Scout intervenes to help Miss Caroline understand Walter Jr.'s reasoning but makes the situation worse. Scout's explanation does not help Miss Caroline and results in her being punished. Situational irony also occurs when Jem returns to the Radley yard to find his pants mended and folded, which he did not expect. The children also discover that their father is a talented marksman, which is unexpected and another example of situational irony.
