In the poems “I Dream a World” and “Democracy,” the author, Langston Hughes, A. asks that democracy be put immediately into practice. B. addresses the problem of inequality for African Americans. C. claims he has dreams of a better future for all mankind. D. waits patiently for the right moment to act against oppression.

The correct answer is B.

Both of this poems by Langston Hughes address the inequalities that African American suffered.

In "I Dream a World," Hughes describes a world in which there would be no injustice, no discrimination or hate. A world in which everyone could be free, regardless of the colour of their skin.

At the same time, in "Democracy," he argues that democracy cannot be achieved as long as people are not given the rights they deserve. As long as black people are oppressed and enslaved, there cannot be real democracy.

Read the claim. A student tutoring program should be established so that peers can help one another. Which statement best uses pathos to support this claim? A. Honor Roll students could offer homework help to students with specific academic needs. B. With careful student pairings, academics would improve and new friendships would form. C. Last spring, nearly twenty percent of all geometry students visited the guidance center to find a tutor. D. Families often complain about the cost of tutors, but a student-run program would be free.

The statement which best uses pathos to support the claim is with careful student pairings, academics would improve and new friendships would form.

Pathos is a Greek word referring to experiences and sufferings. The words empathy and sympathy are derived from the word pathos. Therefore, it is used by authors to make the audience feel what they want them to feel, which would evoke the anger in the audience or would draw pity or sympathy from the audience to prompt action.


In the above statement, it supports the claim because it claims regarding the advantage of student pairing and the help that students can provide to each other which will eventually lead to improved academic response and new friendships among peers.

Whereas other statements do not support the claim as the claim doesn't suggest the specific peer group,  it doesn't state regarding the finding of the tutor and about the problems that families are facing.

Is Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet mostly a love story or mostly a tragedy? (Audience: convince those who think it’s mostly a tragedy that it’s mostly a love story or those who think it’s mostly a love story that it’s a tragedy. You will need to define the terms love story and tragedy, of course.) ~I need examples from the book (Act, scene, and line numbers) Here is an example: (I.ii.23-25). ~I am going to have to make this into 5 paragraphs so please provide as many details as you can. ~I will report any answers that are copied from another cite (I check) and/or spam ~All quotes need to be from the original version of the play.

For one thing, while Romeo does seem fickle at first, Rosaline has a purpose. She's meant to show us how Romeo changes over the course of the play. In the beginning, he was basically in the throes of puppy love--going on about her looks, her smile, blah, blah, blah. There were no hurdles beyond her own disinterest, no real love. It was shallow, and meant to be seen as such. Once Juliet comes into the picture, though, Romeo starts to grow up. He starts thinking about more than looks, starts weighing consequences, and by the end, he's willing to choose death over a life without Juliet (which is still stupid to me, but he wouldn't have even considered that for Rosaline). Rosaline was never more than a foil. 

And though their relationship came on quickly, I think that was mostly due to the time constraints. Shakespeare had to have them meet, fall in love, and off themselves within a very short period. There wasn't time for frequent meetings or any of that. It had to happen quickly...and though I'm the last person to believe in love at first sight, they (and the people who would watch the play being performed) often did. Courtly love, romantic love...that was the ideal for the time period, even if it wasn't ever the reality. Of course Shakespeare included it--he had to appease the higher classes. 

Besides, marriage wasn't something that took a lot of thought on their part. They were financially and socially matched, and it wasn't as though they were wondering whether or not they could handle living together. That's something people in our time, not theirs, think about. They were probably just glad to have found someone on their own as opposed to an arranged marriage with a stranger. It was enough for them. 

Romeo wasn't supposed to be a stalker. He was supposed to be a romantic...though I do agree with you. He annoys me. A lot. 

There WAS love, though. Selfish love at times. Immature love, but still love. 

This was actually one of Shakespeare's more brilliant plays. I may pretty much hate it, but I've studied this one in depth. The things he does with the language is just brilliant, even if it does take a LOT of study to appreciate it. He put a lot into that one.

Read the excerpt from "The Most Dangerous Game." The bed was good, and the pajamas of the softest silk, and he was tired in every fiber of his being, but nevertheless Rainsford could not quiet his brain with the opiate of sleep. He lay, eyes wide open. Once he thought he heard stealthy steps in the corridor outside his room. He sought to throw open the door; it would not open. He went to the window and looked out. His room was high up in one of the towers. The lights of the chateau were out now, and it was dark and silent, but there was a fragment of sallow moon, and by its wan light he could see, dimly, the courtyard. There, weaving in and out in the pattern of shadow, were black, noiseless forms; the hounds heard him at the window and looked up, expectantly, with their green eyes. Rainsford went back to the bed and lay down. By many methods he tried to put himself to sleep. He had achieved a doze when, just as morning began to come, he heard, far off in the jungle, the faint report of a pistol. Naomi is writing an essay about "The Most Dangerous Game.” Which detail from the excerpt best supports her idea that Rainsford feels agitated? a. . . nevertheless Rainsford could not quiet his brain with the opiate of sleep.

Food is gathered and signal fires are lit, but slowly a game of tug of war between chaos and order ensues.

QUESTION POSTED AT 26/02/2020 - 05:02 PM

A Three-Point Turn Chapter 1 "You know, hardly anyone ever needs to do a three-point turn anymore," said Justin, trying to help Becky calm down. "Oh, so it's not a useful skill AND I am probably going to fail the driving test because I can't do it anyway," Becky said, raising her voice for emphasis. "That should make me feel like a million bucks when I flunk." Justin was riding with Becky so she could take her driving test. He had volunteered for the job because he thought she would be less nervous with him than with their mom, but so far, he wasn't sure he was making any difference. "Slow down, your turn is coming up here," he said, looking ahead. "I know, I know," she replied, "I've been here before remember-the last time I flunked." Justin was pretty sure if he had let her miss the turn, things would only have deteriorated further, but he wasn't sure he was fond of being the scapegoat for Becky's anxiety. "Listen, you need to take a few deep breaths," he said, hoping he could help her at least relax a bit. "Being nervous won't help you with the three-point turn or anything else you have to do. Hey, did you just take that turn without your turn signal on?" This was going to be harder than he thought. "Stop yelling at me," Becky replied, clearly frustrated, "I can't concentrate." "Look, you need to stop and get yourself together here," Justin started. "It is not just about passing the driving test. I don't want to get in an accident, so pull into that parking lot." Becky drove into the office building's parking lot where Justin was pointing. Justin knew they were less than a mile from the licensing office, and if she continued in this condition, he'd be having this same discussion three months from now when she tried the test again for the third time. "You need to get a grip," he started after she put the car in park, "because you have studied and practiced driving all year. You know this stuff inside and out, backwards and forwards. What are you so nervous about?" "I don't know, I don't know," Becky wailed, resting her head on the steering wheel. "I just get so tired of failing." Listening quietly as Becky sobbed, Justin realized this was about much more than a driving test. He also knew if he didn't find a way to help Becky things would just get worse. Chapter 2 Justin took a deep breath and collected his thoughts. Becky was an unbelievably consistent straight-A student. It was Justin who got the bad grades in school, and Justin who had to repeat every math class he'd ever taken. It was Justin who wished he could get the grades Becky got. Some things came easier for Justin: He was athletic, handy with tools, and good at making the best of whatever life threw at him. Mom called him her "lemons into lemonade" kid. But for the most part, Becky succeeded easily, whereas Justin had to work and work to just get a passing grade. Rather than having Becky catalogue all the things she supposedly "failed" at, Justin decided to try an alternative approach, one that wouldn't remind him of all the ways he had failed. "Okay, Becky, let's assume for a moment you fail this test again. What is the worst thing that could happen?" he asked. "I would be the oldest kid at school without a license and be humiliated," she replied. Justin thought he heard a bit of panic in her voice but continued with his plan. "Yes, but won't we still have to drive to school together for at least one more year anyway?" he asked. "Yes, but..." she started. "And who will know, if you don't tell anyone except your friends, that you don't have your license? You know Mom can't afford another car just for you, right?" "Yes," she said quietly. "So what difference does it make, really," he said. "Another three months to wait in the grand scheme of your life doesn't seem like all that long, right?" "I suppose not," she said. Justin could tell she was breathing more slowly now. "Besides," he said, "I would miss all the practice driving with you," and for good measure he reached over and pinched her arm. "Ow," she said, hitting back at him, "that hurt." "So let's go do this, okay? "Okay," she said. Becky cranked up the car, backed slowly out of the parking spot and drove up to the parking lot's exit. Justin noticed, as they waited for the traffic to clear, that she had remembered the turn signal. Which comparison is correct? Chapter 1 begins with dialogue, while Chapter 2 begins with a summary. Chapter 1 focuses on Becky's frustration, while Chapter 2 focuses on her driving. Chapter 1 includes details of Justin's character, while Chapter 2 does not. Chapter 1 uses dialogue to develop characters, while Chapter 2 does not.

Chapter 1 focuses on Becky's frustration, while Chapter 2 focuses on her driving.

QUESTION POSTED AT 26/02/2020 - 04:26 PM

SOMEONE HELP ME!!! Read these two excerpts from “No Compromise with the Evil of Slavery” by William Lloyd Garrison. How are the writer’s arguments in the two excerpts different? Excerpt 1 I am a believer in that portion of the Declaration of American Independence in which it is set forth, as among self-evident truths, "that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Hence, I am an abolitionist. Hence, I cannot but regard oppression in every form and most of all, that which turns a man into a thing with indignation and abhorrence. Excerpt 2 Convince me that one man may rightfully make another man his slave, and I will no longer subscribe to the Declaration of Independence. Convince me that liberty is not the inalienable birthright of every human being, of whatever complexion or clime, and I will give that instrument to the consuming fire. I do not know how to espouse freedom and slavery together. I do not know how to worship God and Mammon at the same time. If other men choose to go upon all fours, I choose to stand erect, as God designed every man to stand. If, practically falsifying its heaven-attested principles, this nation denounces me for refusing to imitate its example, then, adhering all the more tenaciously to those principles, I will not cease to rebuke it for its guilty inconsistency. -The first excerpt refers to a historical document, while the second excerpt does not. -The first excerpt presents facts, while the second excerpt contains opinions. -The first excerpt makes a logical appeal, while the second excerpt makes an emotional appeal. -The first excerpt presents opinions, while the second excerpt makes a logical appeal.

Answer: The right answer is the C) The first excerpt makes a logical appeal, while the second excerpt makes an emotional appeal.

Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that in the first excerpt the author is using a very forceful piece of evidence - a passage from the Declaration of Independence - to support his claim and convince his audience to do the same. However, in the second excerpt he is trying to get an emotional reaction from his readers by addressing them very passionately, boldly and persuasively. He is willing to reject the Declaration of Independence and to burn it, and he goes as far as to refer to slave owners as beasts or animals - those "other men" that "choose to go upon all fours." Furthermore, he is also willing to accuse "this nation" (and those are many people) of falsifying God's principles if they denounce him for following His example, and that must have been a very grave accusation at that time when he penned this terrific speech (1854).
