E. How does a diary entry help in understanding someone's lifestyle? Explain.
Answer - 
A person's diary is a collection of their life's experiences. Our thoughts, ideas, feelings, information, and experience are all better organized as a result. The best way to give meaning to our thoughts, ideas, feelings, knowledge, and experiences is through a journal. Writing a diary helps us think more clearly and can even make us more evocative in our thought processes. A diary enables a person to write down and express ideas that, despite the intended recipient being present, they are unable to do so in person. We can learn more about a person by reading their diary. A diary entry therefore aids in understanding a person's lifestyle.
