QUESTION POSTED AT 22/02/2020 - 06:04 PM

If you believe in freedom, you will agree that Deborah Sampson was a war heroine. Deborah proved that women can be excellent soldiers. At a time when women were not allowed to join the army, she hid her identity and did just that. She spent seventeen months posing as a man to serve her country. Deborah was born in Massachusetts in 1760. When she was a child, her family was poor and her mother was ill. At the age of eight, Deborah became a servant. She spent ten years working in a nearby home. She also worked in the fields. During her time as a servant, Deborah became a great person. She learned to hunt, ride a horse, and perform carpentry tasks. She also attended school. By the end of her service, she had received enough education to become a teacher. She taught students at a public school until 1782. At twenty-one, Deborah decided to do something noble. She wanted to serve her country. America was in the middle of the Revolutionary War. The people wanted to win their freedom from England. Women weren’t allowed to join the army, so Deborah developed a clever idea. She would pretend to be a man, so she could become a soldier! On May 20, 1782, Deborah performed a brave and honorable act. She dressed as a man and joined the army, signing up as Robert Shurtleff. The other men in the army had no idea that Robert Shurtleff had such a big secret. At five feet, seven inches, Deborah was a tall woman. No one questioned her size. The other men did notice that she never grew a beard. They often teased her about never needing to shave, but they thought it was because Robert was young. During one battle, Deborah was shot in the leg, but she refused to see a doctor. She worried that the doctor would learn her secret and tell the army leaders. Instead, she chose to treat her own wounds. The leg never healed properly, but Deborah’s secret was safe. What a strong and determined solider she was! Unfortunately, in the fall of 1783, she developed a fever and went to see a doctor. During her treatment, the doctor discovered the truth. The Continental Army released Deborah with honors. Her days as a soldier were over, and she no longer had to live a lie. She later married and had three children. She also gave lectures about her time in the army as Robert Shurtleff. The story of Deborah's life should inspire girls and women everywhere. Paul Revere, another war hero, spoke well of Deborah. He once wrote that she was "a woman with handsome talents, good morals, a dutiful wife, and an affectionate parent." Read the passage on the left to answer the following questions: Which statement from the passage BEST supports the author's conclusion that Deborah was a war heroine? A) Deborah proved that women can be excellent soldiers. B) She spent seventeen months posing as a man to serve her country. C) She also gave lectures about her time in the army as Robert Shurtleff. D) The other men in the army had no idea that Robert Shurtleff had such a big secret.

Lady Macduff and Malcolm both question Macduff's motives for fleeing Scotland. Think about the crimes Macbeth has already committed. Why might the nature of these crimes have led Maduff to believe his family would be safe at his castle?...with textual evidence and explanation on how the textual evidence works.

Answer:

The reason why Macduff, the Thane of Fife, might have felt that his family would be safe in his castle, while he fled Scotland to join with Malcolm and those who have had to flee from Macbeth´s cruelty, would be that up to that point, Macbeth´s crimes had been caused by his fulfilling the prophecies that the three witches had given him both at the beginning of the play, and at the beginning of Act IV. In these prophecies, especially those on Act VI, the witches have warned Macbeth about the Thane of Fife, not about his family, so it would be normal for Macduff to assume that Macbeth would go after him, but not after his family.

In the end, this proves a false hope as Macbeth simply, in retaliation for having lost Macduff, brutally has his family murdered. This only ensures the rage, and the oath of vengance from the Thane of Fife, who will in the end fufill the prophecy of the witches about himself, as now his own peace of mind will only come by murdering Macbeth.

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.

Who is the speaker if this poem? A. a poet b. a young a child c. an outside narrator d. a child of the future i dont understand since there are some options im choosing between please help!! Come, let us plant the apple-tree. Cleave the tough greensward with the spade; Wide let its hollow bed be made; There gently lay the roots, and there Sift the dark mould with kindly care, And press it o’er them tenderly, As, round the sleeping infant’s feet, We softly fold the cradle sheet; So plant we the apple-tree. What plant we in this apple-tree? Buds, which the breath of summer days Shall lengthen into leafy sprays; Boughs where the thrush, with crimson breast, Shall haunt and sing and hide her nest; We plant, upon the sunny lea, A shadow for the noontide hour, A shelter from the summer shower, When we plant the apple-tree. What plant we in this apple-tree? Sweets for a hundred flowery springs To load the May-wind’s restless wings, When, from the orchard row, he pours Its fragrance through our open doors; A world of blossoms for the bee, Flowers for the sick girl’s silent room, For the glad infant sprigs of bloom, We plant with the apple-tree. What plant we in this apple-tree! Fruits that shall swell in sunny June, And redden in the August noon, And drop, when gentle airs come by, That fan the blue September sky, While children come, with cries of glee, And seek them where the fragrant grass Betrays their bed to those who pass, At the foot of the apple-tree. And when, above this apple-tree, The winter stars are quivering bright, And winds go howling through the night, Girls, whose young eyes o’erflow with mirth, Shall peel its fruit by cottage-hearth, And guests in prouder homes shall see, Heaped with the grape of Cintra’s vine And golden orange of the line, The fruit of the apple-tree. The fruitage of this apple-tree Winds and our flag of stripe and star Shall bear to coasts that lie afar, Where men shall wonder at the view, And ask in what fair groves they grew; And sojourners beyond the sea Shall think of childhood’s careless day And long, long hours of summer play, In the shade of the apple-tree. Each year shall give this apple-tree A broader flush of roseate bloom, A deeper maze of verdurous gloom, And loosen, when the frost-clouds lower, The crisp brown leaves in thicker shower; The years shall come and pass, but we Shall hear no longer, where we lie, The summer’s songs, the autumn’s sigh, In the boughs of the apple-tree. And time shall waste this apple-tree. Oh, when its aged branches throw Thin shadows on the ground below, Shall fraud and force and iron will Oppress the weak and helpless still? What shall the tasks of mercy be, Amid the toils, the strifes, the tears Of those who live when length of years Is wasting this little apple-tree? “Who planted this old apple-tree?” The children of that distant day Thus to some aged man shall say; And, gazing on its mossy stem, The gray-haired man shall answer them: “A poet of the land was he, Born in the rude but good old times; ‘T is said he made some quaint old rhymes On planting the apple-tree.”

The answer to this is C

Read the following passage and answer the question. He was finding the general a thoughtful and affable host, a true cosmopolite. But there was one small trait of the general's that made Rainsford uncomfortable. Whenever he looked up from his plate he found the general studying him, appraising him narrowly.

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.)
