Answer: The most effective way to combine sentences 3 and 4 is using a comma followed by the coordinating conjunction "but" to join them: "His real name was Samuel Wilson, but his neighbors called him Uncle Sam".

Explanation: As (3) and (4) stand alone as sentences, they can be joined by creating a compound sentence, that is to say a sentence made up of two independent clauses. In that way, "His real name was Samuel Wilson" would be the first clause and "His neighbors called him Uncle Sam" would be the second one. However, in order for a compound sentence to be correctly written, a comma and a coordinating conjunction are needed. In this case, the coordinating conjunction "but" could be added between both clauses since this word is used to connect ideas that contrast. Therefore, the most effective way to combine sentences 3 and 4 is writing "His real name was Samuel Wilson, but his neighbors called him Uncle Sam".

One element of lyric poetry is personal reflection. Which lines in this poem most clearly illustrate that element? I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

Personal reflection into Lyric poetry expresses emotions as lyric poetry always does, but it also reflects on those feelings and makesan analysis of them.

The lines that best represent that element in this poem are:

I gazed—and gazed—but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:

He reflects about the wonders he has seen and how they're going to go on with him through his memories at any time, how come did he get this huge gift?

Which part of the plot structure is represented by the highest point on the plot diagram? a. exposition b. rising action c. climax d. resolution

The correct answer is C. Climax

Explanation:

In literature, the plot structure or general development of a story includes five main stages: the exposition, the rising action, the climax, the falling action, and the resolution. From these stages, the one that is represented as the highest point is the climax because this refers to the most important "crisis" in the story and represents the most important moment as in this the main conflict begins to be solved. Indeed it is in the climax everything changes for the main character and this occurs only after the rising action in which the conflict steadily increases. Therefore, the part of the plot structure that is represented by the highest point in the plot is the Climax.

1) Which sentence includes the best domain specific words for an informative/explanatory article on how space exploration led to the development of new products for people?

a) Many products we use every day come from technology developed during the moon landing projects.
Comment: this is  a good option, but there aren't many specific words

b) Scientists used MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, to select a suitable landing site on the lunar surface.
THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER - it uses specific terms (MRI) and mentions how it was developed for space exploration. MRI is used in heath exploration today. 


c) Athletic shoes now use the same materials as moon boots.
= no use of very specific language
d) Cordless tools were developed for astronauts to use during space walks.
= there is no talk about the use of the innovation outside of the space exploration context


2) In an informative/explanatory article about vacation planning, which of these concepts would be used to explain something to the reader?

a) Famous beaches - this is not a bad, idea, but it lacks the part of "explaining" - it's rather "describing"

b) Booking a hotel room - this is the best option - a description how to do it would be a good explanation and it's related to vacation planning. 

c) Effective natural sunscreens - again, this is something to mention, but perhaps not to explain, also it's not specific to holidays, as you also need sun protection outside of holidays

d) Travel agent recommendations - this is again not a bad option, but it lacks the "explanation" aspect

1. What were two major influences on German Baroque music? How did these factors influence the music?

Answer:

German Violin Bow and true chords. The church and the state also have major influences. They add more interest in the music of Bach.

Explanation:

Two major influences on German Barque music were the German Violin Bow and true chords that were used often. Also, the church and the state have influences on it.

These two factors made the music of Bach much more interesting. Johan Sebastian Bach was one of the most famous composer and musician of this period. Baroque music began to flourish under him, focusing on the emotions of the music piece. The influence of the church and the state was for their own gains in that the church wants church cantatas while the music of each state differs. And since the coming of Bach, the baroque music which had been unorganized without any 'base' or order, it completely changed and Baroque music even reached its peak of development.
