Read the excerpt below and answer the question. Behold, I answer to him who asks, What was God doing before He made heaven and earth? I answer not, as a certain person is reported to have done facetiously (avoiding the pressure of the question), He was preparing hell, says he, for those who pry into mysteries. (Book XI, Chapter 12) What does the word “facetiously” mean? lacking a serious or respectful attitude lacking pleasure or happiness nervously or anxiously quietly or privately


The word "facetious" means lacking a serious or respectful attitude  


The formal definition of the word facetious is to make fun of something or not to take something very seriously so it could refer to attitudes or personalities, in this case, taking away the seriousness or importance of the question or trying not to get to into a religious topic by talking about the things that God did.

Which sentence is punctuated incorrectly? A. He explained the principle of internal-combustion (although not very well) B. John Lennon (1940-1980) was a founding member of The Beatles. C. The Latin expression "per se" ("in itself") has found wide use in legal circles. D. Fredrick (not known as "Tex") was becoming a well-known animator.


Option A. He explained the principle of internal-combustion (although not very well)


Option A is missing a period at the end of the sentence.

Periods are used at the end of any sentence that is intended to make a statement. The period should be placed directly behind the last letter of the last word of the sentence.

In this case, after finishing a sentence with parenthesis, a period should be set after the parenthesis, not after the last word inside it.

"... (although not very well)."

Three pyramids _____ from the plateau, and the sphinx _____ to stand guard. Which verbs correctly complete the sentence? rises; seems rises; seem rise; seems rise; seem

The correct answer is option C. Three pyramids RISE from the plateau, and the sphinx SEEMS to stand guard.

In the first case, the verb is plural because it has to agree with the subject (three pyramids). On the second part of the sentence, the suitable verb is seems, because the subject is singular: The sphinx. (Only one).

Subjects and verbs must agree with one another in number,  if a subject is singular, its verb must also be singular. On the contrary, if a subject is plural, its verb must also be plural.
