The answer would be B second or third

For example:

Every good homeowner plays their part in keeping the neighborhood clean and safe.
The pronoun would be "their" which would be correct because "every homeowner" is singular...
and i would think the antecedent would be "every good homeowner"

In The Raven, to you personally, what does the Raven represent? (this is a personal question that id like YOUR opinion on) I need real opinions for this essay pls make it a long answer...

Some of the reasons that Poe chose this bird instead of a parrot is because it has a melancholy tone, it picks carcasses, it is a sign of ill-omen, and it is black. Black is a reminder of sorrow, darkness, evil, death, lack of insight, and mourning. These are all disturbing attributes of this bird and these show that a raven is not something you would want at your door in the middle of the night. When Poe first started writing this poem, he knew he had to have a bird that could talk, yet was non-sentient, non-thinking, and non-reasoning. So he had the choice of a parrot or a raven. As you can tell from above, the raven is more fitting for his intention.

Read the excerpt below and answer the question. I hope no one who reads this book has been quite as miserable as Susan and Lucy were that night; but if you have been…you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing was ever going to happen again. At any rate that was how it felt to these two. —from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis This story is written from the perspective of _____. Susan and Lucy the narrator neither the narrator nor Susan and Lucy

Answer:

B). The narrator.

Explanation:

Perspective or point of view is described as the approach through which the author communicates his emotions or point of view either himself or through the characters of the story. It is quite significant as it determines how the audience would perceive a particular literary text and how would they respond to it.

As per the question, the given story is written from the perspective of 'the narrator' which is reflected by the use of the pronoun 'you' and 'these'. The narrator here expresses his individual thoughts/perceptions about Susan and Lucy and relates it directly to the audience 'you'(second-person point of view). Thus, option B is the correct answer.

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.

Which statement best describes Emily Dickinson and her poetic style? a) Dickinson writes unusual titles for her poems. b) Dickinson writes with creative punctuation. c) Dickinson writes poems that do not rhyme. d) Dickinson writes from a third-person point of view.

To the best of my knowledge the right option is B; Dickinson writes with creative punctuation.

Dickinson most often punctuated her poems with dashes, rather than the more common array of periods, commas, and other punctuation marks.  She also capitalized interior words, not just words at the beginning of a line.

Generally, Dickinson´s poems lack a tittle.Her poems are now generally known by their first lines or by the numbers assigned to them by posthumous editor. Furthermore, she used to write in first person as in most lyric poetry.

Besides, sometimes she broke some of her poems into stanzas, but in others, there were no stanza breaks.

PLEASE HELP, thank you Read the passage. Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December; And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. Eagerly I wished the morrow; —vainly I had sought to borrow From my books surcease of sorrow—sorrow for the lost Lenore— For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Nameless here for evermore. What is the point of view in the passage? a.1st person b.2nd person c.3rd person limited d.3rd person omniscient

The correct answer is A. 1st person

Explanation:

The point of view in a poem like the one presented refers to the voice, character or entity that tells the events and acts as a narrator. In the case of the first-person point of view, this occurs when the narrator is one character who uses the pronoun "I" to tell the events and express his/her feelings. This point of view is the one in the excerpt presented because the narrator is directly involved in the events he describes; also, he uses the pronoun "I" or pronouns derived from it that can be found only in the first-person point of view as in "I remember it was in the bleak December" or "Eagerly I wished the morrow".

Who Know how to Write personal Narrative Essay

Hey! Remember, a personal narrative essay is about YOU! You can write about anything that happened to you in your life, things like first kisses, first dates, or even about the first time you went to the zoo! It could literally be about anything, just make sure that YOU are in it!

So, a personal narrative essay always has to have a beginning, middle, and end, just like any other essay. But, unlike other essays, you have to write in first person. Basically, writing in first person is when include "I" in the beginning of your sentences. Also, don't forget to include a plot! Every good personal narrative HAS to have a plot.

And, last but not least, you need to include a conclusion! How is your story ending? How did this event (or whatever you are writing about) affect you, and how did it end? Don't forget, this isn't all what you need in a personal narrative, but these are the things that'll help you get started.
