Emphasis highlights part of a design to draw the viewer to it (image 5.) It can be many things: a contrasting color, an unexpected form or a superimposed pattern. A design may have a primary focal point and other secondary focal points with different emphasized elements.
A yarn can show emphasis in its own design with a prominent element like a speck of bright color, or be used as emphasis in a larger design for its quality of color, texture, size or other attribute. Novelty structures are sometimes used to provide emphasis by the contrast in texture with a plain yarn.

Examiner 1 thought this was an improvement over the previous items, although in the context of the comments I can't say why.
