Which of the following statements most accurately describes Marlow's view of White women? A.) They represent darkness B.) They're equal to men C.) They live in their own world, far removed from the reality of men D.) They love in the world of economic reality E.) They're better than men

Answer:

C.) They live in their own world, far removed from the reality of men

Explanation:

In Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness", there are just two women (Marlow's aunt and Kurtz' intended) who are white who are of significance with the main protagonist of the story, Charlie Marlow. Both represent the patriarchal authority of the society that they are living in, trophies for their men. To Marlow, women "live in a world of their own, and there has never been anything like it, and never can be. It's too beautiful altogether, and if they were to set it up it would go to pieces before the first sunset." (Chapter 1). This rightly sums up his image of women.

In which situation are you most likely to be able to use the context clues strategy successfully? A. A text in which the definitions of unknown words are included in a glossary. B. A text in which unknown words are highlighted for the reader. C. A text in which the reader can choose from a menu of words to determine which one best completes a sentence. D. A text in which the writer has provided enough information in the sentence or surrounding sentences that the meaning of the word is clear.

The correct answer is D. A text in which the writer has provided enough information in the sentence or surrounding sentences that the meaning of the word is clear.

Explanation:

In texts and in the reading process, context clues strategy is about using the words, details, and sentences in which an unknown or unfamiliar word appears in order to determine the meaning of it. This strategy is quite useful as in this way the reader can understand all the information in a text without using an external source such as a dictionary or any other strategy.

However, this strategy can only be used if the author or writer of a text provides details, words or similar that describe or give clues that clarify the meaning of the unknown word. Considering this, it can be concluded the situation in which you can use successfully this strategy is "a text in which the writer has provided enough information in the sentence or surrounding sentences that the meaning of the word is clear" because this strategy relies on the clues or hints provided by the words and sentences that surround an unknown word but without hints this strategy cannot be used.

The excerpt from Lord Byron's "She Walks in Beauty" that most directly describes its subject as a part of all nature is the following one:
“…like the night/Of cloudless climes, and starry skies…”
This is the only excerpt that even remotely mentions nature, let alone compare the woman to the night, and cloudless climes, and starry skies. You can see that she is inseparable from nature, because nature is beauty and love, the same way she is.

Read the paragraph from Nick’s personal narrative. Standing alone in my family’s barn, I thought about how much hard work and time my parents had invested—how much hard work and time we had all invested—in maintaining a fully operational farm. I did not remember a time when my clothes had not reeked of manure or my hair had not held fast to brittle pieces of straw. What would happen if my parents had to sell the farm so we could move closer to my grandparents? Just as I was attempting to imagine a life in the city, a sudden commotion erupted and interrupted my thoughts. With animals squawking and dust flying, I scrambled to pinpoint the source of this unexpected intrusion. In seconds that felt more like minutes, I was successful . . . and I could scarcely believe what my eyes were seeing. Nick would like to rearrange his plot so that it begins with the commotion in the barn. Which statement best describes how starting in the middle of an exciting part will affect the plot?1. Nick will need to go back and explain why his parents have worked so hard to keep the farm.2. Nick will need to provide other exciting details in order to maintain the reader’s attention.3. Nick will need to provide a more detailed conclusion to make up for the events he did not include.4. Nick will need to go back and relate the events that led up to that moment in the story.

The answer is D) Nick will need to go back and relate the events that led up to the moment in the story

QUESTION POSTED AT 22/02/2020 - 04:17 PM

Imagine that you're a fly. You're just zipping around the sky, looking for a place to rest, when you see nice pink leaf. That looks like a nice place to land. You think to yourself in your fly head. As you rest your feet on the leaf, you notice something strange. This leaf is hairy. You begin to make your move, but you trigger the plant's reflex. Snap! In one-tenth of a second, you are caught in the Venus flytrap. You will be digested in five to twelve days. Welcome to the world of carnivorous plants! There are over a quarter of a millions plant species. Only 600 or so are carnivorous. We call them this because they attract, trap, and eat bugs. Like other plants, they get energy from the sun. But unlike other plants, they get their nutrients from their prey. Carnivorous plants live in bogs and places where the soil lacks nutrients. Most plants get nutrients from the soil. Carnivorous plants have turned to other sources. The snap of the Venus flytrap is not the only way that plants eat bugs. Pitcher plants trick their prey into landing on them. They offer nectar bribes to the foolish insects that would take them. True to their name, pitcher plants have deep chambers. Their landing surface is slippery. They have inward pointing hairs, making it hard to escape. The fly lands on the pitcher plant to eat, but slips into a pit filled with digestive fluids and is eaten. Then there're sundews. We call them sundews because they sparkle in the sun as if covered in morning dew. Of course, that sparkle is from something much more treacherous. It is a sweet goo called mucilage that bugs can't resist. Sundews create mucilage to attract bugs. As they fly in to eat, bugs become trapped in the very object of their desire. They soon exhaust themselves by trying to escape the mucilage. Or the sundew's tentacles, which respond to prey by curling around them, smother them. Bugs usually die in about 15 minutes. Then the plant dissolves its prey in enzymes and absorbs the nutrients. Image Have you ever walked into trouble and found that you couldn't get out? So has every insect that has ever wandered into a corkscrew plant. Bugs love to investigate plants for nectar and food. Corkscrew plants have inviting stems. Curved hairs line the inside of these stems. These hairs allow insects to go up the stems, but not back. Going forward leads a chamber filled with digestive fluid, the plant's stomach. Bugs who wander into the corkscrew plant find that they are unable to escape. They must march to their own demise. And then there are the bladderworts. They're about as nice as they sound. They live in water and float near the surface. Their traps are like small bladders hidden beneath the water. Only their flowers are visible from the surface. When bugs swim into the trigger hairs, the plant reacts. A trapdoor in the bladder opens up. The bladder sucks up the prey and the water surrounding it. A tenth of a second later, the bladder shuts again. The plant has trapped the prey. It releases digestive fluids. The prey will be digested within hours. Carnivorous plants might sound tough, but they are difficult to keep at home. They are built to survive in places that other plants cannot. This specialization comes at a cost. They have a hard time adapting to other environments. Their strengths become weaknesses in rich soil. They depend on the harsh yet delicate environments in which they thrive. They are not so hardy after all. Still, there's something to be said about the power of life when one finds a plant that can survive in barren soil. Question:Compare and contrast two types of plants described in this passage. How are they similar? How are they different? Refer to the text in your answer and explain your arguments completely. Eplain in two paragraph

Just write about the differences and similarities about only two of the plants mentioned in the text. There are 5 plants mentioned (venus flytrap, pitcher plant, sundew, corkscrew plant, and bladderworts.)

That it is my purpose, upon the next meeting of Congress to again recommend the adoption of a practical measure tendering pecuniary aid to the free acceptance or rejection of all slave States, so called, the people whereof may not then be in rebellion against the United States and which States may then have voluntarily adopted, or thereafter may voluntarily adopt, immediate or gradual abolishment of slavery within their respective limits; and that the effort to colonize persons of African descent, with their consent, upon this continent, or elsewhere, with the previously obtained consent of the Governments existing there, will be continued. That on the first day of January in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.
