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.

Answer:

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

Explanation:

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.

According to Swift, what was the purpose of publishing Gulliver's Travels? A. He wanted to make fun of the upper class of England and their practices. B. He wanted to insult political officials so English society would call for their executions. C. He wanted to entertain readers with a funny and heartwarming story highlighting English characters. D. He wanted to correct human failings and remind people of basic human kindnesses

Jonathan Swift wittily wrote "Travels to Several Nations of the World" as a satire to depict the way kings governed and how society was constructed. By describing the advances in the nations that Gulliver visits and the great manners that smart horses can demonstrate, it is possible to say that he wanted to correct human failings and remind people of basic human kindness.

Read the sentences. The siblings were like cats and dogs when left alone together. As a result, the babysitter was careful to keep them separated as much as possible. The author most likely uses the simile to emphasize that A. the siblings were unusually hairy. B. the siblings did not get along well. C. the babysitter was not fond of animals. D. the babysitter was actually taking care of animals.

The author most likely uses the similie, "The siblings were like cats and dogs," to emphasize that the siblings did not get along well (B).

Even though there are cats and dogs that get along well, generally they are like fire and ice, complete opposites. Cats and dogs do not get along and apparently neither do these siblings. The author uses the similie to give the reader more imagery than simply stating the siblings don't get along.

Read the excerpt from A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. I have repeatedly asserted, and produced what appeared to me irrefragable arguments drawn from matters of fact, to prove my assertion, that women cannot, by force, be confined to domestic concerns; for they will, however ignorant, intermeddle with more weighty affairs, neglecting private duties only to disturb, by cunning tricks, the orderly plans of reason which rise above their comprehension. This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by insisting that women deserve to be educated despite their inferior capacity for learning. suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education. asserting that domestic chores offer fulfillment because they require a vast knowledge of the world. claiming that women who excel in domestic roles should be called upon to serve as world leaders.

This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is an exposition on overcoming the oppression and denial of the women in the society. It is a dedication to Charles. M. Talleyrand whose views on women education to Wollstonecraft were repugnant. She blamed the condition of adult women due to the negligence of girl's education. The women in the society only care about being attractive, modest and elegant. They are deprived to defend their fundamental rights and are treated as subordinates.

In her argument, she describes ways in which women combine their silliness. Their silliness includes visiting fortune tellers, reading a stupid novel, rivalries with women, and so forth. Due to women's low status and no education results in women's faults and not due to natural deficiency.

Read the sentence. Past history has taught our community that effective solutions occur only after long thought. Revise the sentence to eliminate redundancy.

Answer:

"History has taught our community that effective solutions occur only after long thought."

Explanation:

In order to eliminate redundancy in this sentence, we need to eliminate the word "past" at the beginning of the sentence. This is because the word is describing "history," but we already know that history refers to the past, which means we do not need this description. Redundancy refers to the use of words that provide information that is unimportant or obsolete because it was already provided in some other way.
