One element of lyric poetry is personal reflection. Which lines in this poem most clearly illustrate that element? I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

Personal reflection into Lyric poetry expresses emotions as lyric poetry always does, but it also reflects on those feelings and makesan analysis of them.

The lines that best represent that element in this poem are:

I gazed—and gazed—but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:

He reflects about the wonders he has seen and how they're going to go on with him through his memories at any time, how come did he get this huge gift?

Read this paragraph. Biology 101 with Professor Ramirez is the most challenging course I have ever taken. Though every inspiring class session includes exhaustive note taking and time-consuming lab work, I enjoy the material. The entertaining lectures are instructive, and all the students remain engaged throughout the hour. Which words from the paragraph support the conclusion that Professor Ramirez is a demanding teacher? Check all that apply. challenging inspiring class session exhaustive note taking time-consuming lab work entertaining lectures engaged

The correct answers are A. Challenging; C. Exhaustive note taking and D. Time-consuming lab work

Explanation:

The word "demand" refers to something or someone that is challenging or requires an intensive effort that is not normally required in a similar situation. This means if a teacher is classified as demanding is generally because this teacher asks students for more than other teachers do. In the excerpt presented, in which the Biology teacher called Professor Ramirez is described, the narrator emphasizes this teacher is "the most challenging course" which means this course and requires require more than the narrator expects. Also, the narrator describes the class sessions require "exhaustive not taking and time-consuming lab work" that also explain the way teacher Ramirez is demanding. Additionally, the narrator describes other positive features of the teacher such as "inspiring" or "students remain engaged" that do not relate to the demanding aspect. Thus, the words that support the idea that Professor Ramirez is a demanding teacher are "challenging" which is a synonym for demanding; "exhaustive note-taking" and "time-consuming lab word" which explain the ways in which this teacher demands more from students than others which refers to the concept of demanding.

No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same. No one gave a thought to the older worlds of space as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of life upon them as impossible or improbable. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. At most terrestrial men fancied there might be other men upon Mars, perhaps inferior to themselves and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise. Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. And early in the twentieth century came the great disillusionment. Which of the following states the central idea of the first paragraph? For many reasons, humans did not notice they were being watched. Humans were like creatures that swim and live in water. Microscopes help define the human view of the inhabitants of Mars. Minds across the universe have been plotting to destroy humanity.

For many reasons, humans did not notice that they were being watched.
