What best identifies the theme in President Cleveland where are you

Answer:the authors purpose of writing this short story is to show that family is important. An example of showing this is that jerry didn’t want to put any money in for his dads birthday gift he wanted to get Ken Maynard cards, but then after when they stopped selling the card jerry felt guilty for not putting money in for his father.The theme is centered around choices that Jerry makes during the Great Depression. The story shows that you don't have to have a lot of money to be able to afford something that you want. If you are creative you can achieve whatever you set your mind to. The difference between the authors purpose and the theme is that the authors purpose is saying kinda of why he might have wrote this short story and the theme is basically saying that you could put your mind to anything if you just try. The theme and the authors purpose are somewhat the same.

Which sentence is the correct definition of direct characterization? A. The author describes a person's thoughts to tell readers about a character. B. The author uses specific adjectives to tell readers about a character. C. The author describes a person's actions to tell readers about a character. D. The author uses dialogue and speech to tell readers about a character

Answer: B. The author uses specific adjectives to tell readers about a character.

The right answer is option B. Direct characterization describes a situation in which an author tells us about a character by using specific adjectives. For example, we learn that a character is kind because the author tells us that he is. Indirect characterization, on the other hand, occurs when an author describes the thoughts, behaviour, and conversations of the character and we learn about the character through these. In this case, we might learn that a character is kind because he tries to help people in need.

A grimace is a twisted facial expression showing disgust or pain. Which of the following activities would most likely result in a person grimacing? A. watching a movie from a seat in the middle of the theater B. trying to lift something that is extremely heavy C. winning a championship tennis game D. getting a new job that pays well

The answer is B: trying to lift something that is extremely heavy.

Although, as can be seen above, the word grimace has many connotations, one of its main connotations is to express pain. Evidently, if a person is trying to lift something that is extremely heavy, it means that the person finds that object to be weighty, therefore, that person will very likely grimace in show of pain because of the effort being implemented.

What is the main problem with the following critique? “That was the stupidest speech I’ve ever heard. You weren’t organized, you were boring, it went too long, your visual aids were ugly and useless, and nobody cares about your topic.” a. It is not positive. b. It is not objective. c. It is not constructive. d. It is not ethical.

Answer:

The main problem with the critique is the following one:

d. It is not ethical.

Explanation:

The word choice and tone are completely unethical, since the critique is aggressive, excessively harsh and rude. That is not how feedback is supposed to be given. In order to be constructive, a critique must point out not only what could have been better, but also what must be done so those aspects can be improved. Therefore, calling someone's speech "stupid", calling the speaker "boring", and saying nobody cares about the topic is definitely not the way to go if one wants their critique to be ethical.
