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.

Do you think people rely too much or too little on body language when communicating? Why?

Body language during communication can mean many things, the person might want to see if the person is following along to what they are saying or they just feel as if they are not communicating properly if its not used. With that said not a lot of people use body language, most people who seems to use it are speech givers, or public talkers. Maybe its a nervous habit for some, but its not a reliance so no I don't believe they do.

Figurative language and colloquial language are not appropriate for academic writing

First of this isn't a question, but here we go! Figurative is GREAT for academic writing. It can convey points and make things easier to understand. It also makes the passage more lively, and less boring (No one likes a boring paper).
Though colloquial isn't good for essays, if it is in dialogue it is okay. For instance, it shows the culture of the person, and makes for some interesting reading! "If dats aright' fer ye!"

1. Achilles agrees with Ajax that he is clinging to his anger over Agamemnon's insult. Many of the choices Achilles makes are based on that anger. However, when Achilles sends Patroclus into the fray, he advises him to drive back the Trojans but to stay away from the city's walls, lest he be killed. These actions give depth to Achilles. Describe Achilles based on his actions and his interactions with others. Use specific details from the text to support your answer.

1. based on his actions, Achilles seems to be brave by warning Patroclus and helping him so that he would not lose his life. ( Since you did not provide the text for this answer, just search for some parts in the passage that matches this description.)
2. He has been willing to sacrifice his life for his pride. Since Achilles wants to be the hero so much, he puts his life on the line all because of his pride. His pride causes him to act brave and seem fearless but his pride is slowly eating away at him. Because of this, his pride could just be his downfall if it continues.
3. Because of all his pride and wanting to be the hero in everything to save everyone and to be the star, he went against something he could just not beat because of his pride. His pride caused his downfall.

2.Read the following paragraph found in the selection from "From Emperor to Citizen." The "Articles for Favorable Treatment" stipulated that I could live temporarily in the Imperial Palace without fixing any definite time limit. Apart from three large halls that were handed over to the Republic, the rest of the Forbidden City continued to belong to the Imperial Palace. It was in this tiny world that I was to spend the most absurd childhood possible until I was driven out by the soldiers of the National Army in 1924. I call it absurd because at a time when China was called a republic and mankind had advanced into the twentieth century, I was still living the life of an emperor, breathing the dust of the nineteenth century. After reading this paragraph, what can the reader most likely conclude about China? A. It is a country that is defined by strict rules.***** B. It is a country that favors tradition over progress. C. It is a country that honors its royalty with extravagant living. D. It is a country that struggled to find its place in a global society. I think the answer is either A or B but I'm not sure. What do you guys think?

Answer:

B. It is a country that favors tradition over progress.  

Explanation:

The text claims that China wanted to keep the traditions of the nineteenth century, even if the world was in the twentieth century and China has shown a promising breakthrough, whether in technology, government, or any other situation in the country. The part of the excerpt that makes clear that China is a country that favors the tradition of progress, is the passage: " I call it absurd because at a time when China was called a republic and mankind had advanced into the twentieth century, I was still living the life of an emperor, breathing the dust of the nineteenth century.

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.

The answer is D: The student should replace informal language with formal language.

All forms of academic writing, like an essay, should strive to always use formal language and avoid informal language. The latter is a form of language commonly used in conversation where clarity and precision are not necessary since the listener can always ask for clarification. Formal language, on the other hand, is aimed at accuracy and clarity in conveying distinct and non-ambiguous thoughts, arguments, and thesis, through sentences that are as meaningful as possible and require no further explanation or clarification. Revision of an essay should always consider this.
