Explanation:

A comedy is a genre in literature in which the events, characters, and other elements aim at entertaining to the audience through humor. Also, comedies have a happy ending and the characters are part of a story that is funny and entertaining.

Which word best completes this sentence? the nymph feels that love turns to _____. a. madrigal b. reckon c. gall d. wither

The nymph feels that love turns to gall. Option c is correct.

in Greek mythology a nymph is a minor female nature deity typically associated with a particular location or landform.

Different from other goddesses, nymphs are usually regarded as divine spirits who animate nature, and are often pictured as beautiful, young nubile maidens who love to dance and sing; their amorous freedom sets them apart from the restricted and chaste wives and daughters of the Greek polis.

1) Which sentence includes the best domain specific words for an informative/explanatory article on how space exploration led to the development of new products for people?

a) Many products we use every day come from technology developed during the moon landing projects.
Comment: this is  a good option, but there aren't many specific words

b) Scientists used MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, to select a suitable landing site on the lunar surface.
THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER - it uses specific terms (MRI) and mentions how it was developed for space exploration. MRI is used in heath exploration today. 


c) Athletic shoes now use the same materials as moon boots.
= no use of very specific language
d) Cordless tools were developed for astronauts to use during space walks.
= there is no talk about the use of the innovation outside of the space exploration context


2) In an informative/explanatory article about vacation planning, which of these concepts would be used to explain something to the reader?

a) Famous beaches - this is not a bad, idea, but it lacks the part of "explaining" - it's rather "describing"

b) Booking a hotel room - this is the best option - a description how to do it would be a good explanation and it's related to vacation planning. 

c) Effective natural sunscreens - again, this is something to mention, but perhaps not to explain, also it's not specific to holidays, as you also need sun protection outside of holidays

d) Travel agent recommendations - this is again not a bad option, but it lacks the "explanation" aspect

The Summoner was a church official who was responsible for calling out sinners before the courts. Although this was his job, he himself is a sinner.

QUESTION POSTED AT 29/01/2020 - 04:19 PM

Which of the sentences below uses the word turned as a linking verb? (1 point)The milk turned sour after sitting out on the counter overnight. She turned the doorknob but the door was locked. Have you turned in your writing assignment yet?

Answer: The sentence that uses "turned" as a linking verb is the first one: "The milk turned sour after sitting out on the counter overnight".

Explanation: A linking verb is a verb that connects the subject of a sentence to a word or group of words that provide additional information about it. Therefore, linking verbs do not indicate an action and they are usually followed by an adjective. The verb "turn" can be a linking verb, but it can also be used as a transitive verb and an intransitive verb. In the sentence "The milk turned sour after sitting out on the counter overnight", "turn" has been used as a linking verb since it is connecting the subject ("The milk") to an adjective that describes it ("sour"). In other words, "turn" is not showing an action: it is establishing a relationship between two elements. In contrast, in the other two sentences ("She turned the doorknob but the door was locked" and "Have you turned in your writing assignment yet?"), "turned" has been used as a transitive verb.

Statements such as always, everybody, and never are cue words for which of the following? A. emotional appeals B. overgeneralizations C. ethical concerns D. logical appeals

   Overgeneralization is a type of argumentation where we state something, giving it a property and extending it to a large population (exaggerating something claiming it is in a certain way; always, for everybody, even if it is not probably like that) and it can be based on common sense or general knowledge, a distorted notion, or the opinion of the speaker rather than to a logical and rational proof.  Based on a single fact is drawn many conclusions.

  "It is always hot in Brazil"  could be an example of an overgeneralization.
