Read the excerpt from chapter 11 of The Awakening. “Edna, dear, are you not coming in soon?” he asked again, this time fondly, with a note of entreaty. “No, I am going to stay out here.” “This is more than folly,” he blurted out. “I can’t permit you to stay out there all night. You must come in the house instantly.” Which best explains how the excerpt is an example of realism? The conversation is a symbolic criticism of marriage. The conversation imitates conversations in real life. The conversation is not one that could occur in reality. The conversation has an underlying tone of anger.

Answer: B) The conversation imitates conversations in real life.

Explanation: In literature, realism is a movement that started in France in the nineteenth century, and the authors of the movement tried to represent the everyday-situations as they were (like relationships, or familie issues), without making them more beautiful or using fantastic elements. In this case, the excerpt is an example of realism because it imitates a real conversation between a married couple.

Is this gramatically correct? "The place itself is important to me, although what really made it special was the relationships and memories I made there." or "The place itself is important to me. But what really made it special was the relationships and memories I made there." if not how can I fix it.

The second sentence is more correct due to the usage of the conjunction  "but", however, the period should be replaced with a comma to make the sentence more flowing.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/02/2020 - 09:52 PM

Cloning, if allowed for human reproduction, could affect society's perception of what it means to be a human being. Uncertainties over a cloned individual's personal uniqueness or freedom to create one's own identity may haunt him or her. Relatives or friends could have specific expectations regarding the cloned individual's talents and abilities. Others might ill treat or discriminate against a cloned individual. Some worry that cloning would lead to diminished respect for human life in general, and for cloned individuals in particular, since the cloned person might simply be replaced with another clone. Others point out, however, that this altered perception does not occur today with identical twins, who are naturally produced clones. Cloning human embryos also raises difficult questions about the rights of parents to control their own embryos and other issues concerning reproductive rights and privacy. Some observers believe that it would be ethical to clone human embryos to help infertile couples conceive. Lastly, the possibility of human cloning is offensive to the religious and other deeply held beliefs of many people. Source: "CRS Report for Congres." Foreign Press Centers. US Department of State, 25 Feb. 2002. Web. 6 Dec. 2010. Which sentence, taken from the excerpt above, supports the evaluation that this article is objective?

HELP !!! this is part of my final Read the paragraph from a student’s critical analysis essay. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson talks about independence through his use of big words and fancy argument skills. First, Jefferson states his thesis, which makes it seem important that the colonists get independence. Next, Jefferson gives evidence against the king of England and how he mistreats the American colonies. Finally, Jefferson suggests that colonists should stop paying taxes and fight, which is the obvious answer to the colonists’ problems. What is the best way for the student to revise the essay? The student should replace familiar language with more accessible language. The student should replace scholarly language with informal language. The student should replace formal language with more familiar language. The student should replace informal language with formal language.

Answer: D) The student should replace informal language with formal language.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/02/2020 - 05:46 PM

Identify the singular possessive form of the noun princess.

Answer:

Both forms princess' and princess's are correct.

Explanation:

In the English language, when a singular noun ends in -s, we should add 's to it in order to form its possessive. There have always been some exceptions, such as ancient names and the possessive Jesus'. Thus, even though the word princess ends in -s, it's correct possessive would be princess's.

However, more and more authors agree that pronunciation should be taken into consideration. If the extra -s after the apostrophe sounds awkward, the best would be to leave out and only add '. Some grammar authors don't even worry about pronunciation, they only claim that both spellings are acceptable (e.g. Diana Hacker in "A Writer's Reference"). In conclusion, princess' is also a correct way to spell the word's possessive form.

In "A Modest Proposal," Swift indisputably proves that the children's skins could even be used to create clothing. Which word or phrase should replace "indisputably proves" to create an objective tone? 1.suggests 2.absurdly describes 3.demands 4.brilliantly writes

Answer:

Option 1

Explanation:

Objective tone referes to an impersonal style of writing in which a message or idea is delivered, but no information about the author is provided. In order to replace "indisputably proves" to creat an objective tone the word "suggest" can be used. It is important to mention that the speaker in the proposal was invented by Swift to shock the readers about the injustice and terrible conditions of the Ireland of the time. It is possible to sense that the tone is not neutral, the author is in favor of the ideas of Swift. Being objective requires neutral facts that do not carry opinions.
