If a person were to win the lottery, the smartest thing to do is use their money wisely. Even though a large amount of money is available and given to a person, they should not go out and buy everything they want immediately because sooner than they think, they will be in the same financial position they were in before they received the money. If a person were to win the lottery they should use their money wisely and put it towards future investments.

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?


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


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.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/03/2020 - 10:44 AM

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. Use Chapters 1 and 2 to answer the following question: Which of the following best summarizes the main conflict of the story? A. Becky comes to terms with her obsession with perfection. B. Becky fails to use turn signals and sets off a pent-up argument with her brother. C. Becky gets upset on her way to a driving test while Justin tries to calm her down. D. Becky has a conversation with her brother about driving recklessly.

The correct answer is C. Becky gets upset on her way to a driving test while Justin tries to calm her down


In literature, the conflict is the struggle or opposing force the main character faces during the story and that stops the character from achieving some goal. Also, the conflict is considered as one of the main points in literary works as the story focuses on solving the conflict the character faces.

In the case of the text presented during the first chapter, the character Justin and Becky discuss as she feels she is going to fail again and she is worried about it as they both are in the way to the driving test. On the other hand, Justin is trying to help her be calmer but this seems not to work as Becky misses a turn signal and Justin asks her to stop driving which leads to a discussion in which Becky ends crying. During the second chapter, Justin decides to stop discussing and help her by showing her failing the test is not as terrible as Becky thinks and does not really change Becky's life as she can take the test again and wait for some months, which finally makes Becky feel better about the situation and continue driving. This means the opposing force or struggles Becky's faces are the feelings of frustration and anger for taking the test again while Justin struggles to make her feel better and calm.

HELP MEEEEEEEEE PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 20 POINTS AND BRAINILEST ANSWER!!! Writers organize their writings to make an impact on their readers. In Muir's writing about the Calypso Borealis, he places opposing views of his journey close together. Read the following paragraph. In two to four sentences, explain the opposite views described within the paragraph and discuss the impact of placing these opposite views close together. How long I sat beside Calypso I don't know. Hunger and weariness vanished, and only after the sun was low in the west I splashed on through the swamp, strong and exhilarated as if never more to feel any mortal care. At length I saw maple woods on a hill and found a log house. I was gladly received. "Where ha ye come fra? The swamp, that awfu' swamp. What were ye doin' there?" etc. "Mony a puir body has been lost in that muckle, cauld, dreary bog and never been found." When I told her I had entered it in search of plants and had been in it all day, she wondered how plants could draw me to these awful places, and said, "It's god's mercy ye ever got out."

Muir starts off talking about how long he had been sitting by the Calypso-so long that he wasn't tired or hungry anymore. We, as the readers, think he has a bad attitude about sitting by this plant.

 he is describing his wait as painful(he is WAY past being tired or hungry). However, the next sentence contrasts with this idea. When the sun sets, Muir suddenly gets this jolt of purpose and energy, stronger and determined than ever before. Can you see the pattern here? As for the dialogue, it is a woman speaking, and she lives in the log house he sees. She has a negative attitude towards the swamp, while Muir has a positive one. She wonders why he would want to be in a dangerous place like the swamp, explaining that a body was found in it. She then goes on to say that it was God's mercy that Muir was able to get out of the mucky swamp.

He describes a clear cause-and-effect situation. He compares and contrasts his reluctance to go to war. He states a main idea and offers details to make his point.




Woodrow Wilson was the 28th president of America. On 2nd April 1917, Wilson asked Congress to send the US troops to the war with Germany in World War 1. For him, it was a fearful thing to send peaceful people to the war, and that also such a dreadful war. But he makes his point that it is important to fight for the right, because for him fighting for the right is more important than peace.

In paragraph 8, of his message he is making his point of sending troops to the war and stating his main idea of his message.

In chapter 40, Sal receives a gift chicken from Ben. Chickens are Sal's favorite animal. However, this is not the only thing that is interesting about the chicken. The name of the chicken is Blackberry, which is interesting for two reasons. The first one is that blackberries remind Sal of her mother, and the feeling of fondness and sweetness associated with her. The irony, however, is that the chicken also reminds her of kissing, based on the story of the girl who claimed that kissing tasted like chicken. When Sal kissed a tree, she also felt a trace of blackberry, which reminded her of her mother.

In Normandy, Baissac pretended to be a refugee from Paris living in the house of a schoolmaster. There, she helped to set up more resistance groups and organize sabotage actions. Again traveling by bicycle, she maintained secret communications between groups and transported supplies. This was extremely dangerous work. Often covering forty miles in a single day, she carried arms and explosives as well as information about targets. Her actions, along with those of her colleagues, often delayed the arrival of German reinforcements to the front lines of battle. Which best describes the central idea of this paragraph? When she lived in Normandy, Baissac assumed a different identity in order to complete important work while she lived there. Baissac’s goal was to get in the way of German troop movement, and she was often successful when she worked with resistance groups. Baissac did significant work as a spy when she lived in Normandy, sometimes traveling by bicycle to complete her tasks. As a spy in Normandy, Baissac performed a variety of important and sometimes dangerous tasks in order to get in the way of German troops.

The last option is the correct answer.  It defines Bassiac as a spy in a certain country. It also states that she performed her tasks as a spy well. Take note, when finding the central idea of a paragraph, you should eliminate unimportant details and focus on what must be interpreted.
