QUESTION POSTED AT 18/02/2020 - 02:30 PM

1. Which of the following best states a theme of Romeo and Juliet? • Love paves the way for peace. • The power of nature overcomes the will of man. • Love is a gentle force that brings families together. • Actions in haste can bring about destruction. 2. In Act IV, Scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet, Paris tells Friar Lawrence, "Immoderately she weeps for Tybalt's death, / And therefore have I little talked of love." What makes Paris's comment an example of dramatic irony? • Juliet is saddened by the death of Tybalt. • Juliet is actually weeping over Romeo's banishment. • Juliet is pretending to cry in order to avoid seeing Paris. • Juliet was in love with her cousin Tybalt. 3. In Romeo and Juliet, which of the following illustrates Shakespeare's use of comic relief? • A servant explains to Capulet that cooks should lick their own fingers. • Capulet believes that Juliet is dead when she is really only sleeping. • "Honest good fellows, ah, put up, put up; For well you know this is a pitiful case." • A nurse claims to be too tired to give Juliet Romeo's message. 4. Read the following line from Romeo's monologue in Act II, Scene 2 of Romeo and Juliet: But soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun! What is Romeo saying in this passage? • Romeo has broken the window even though he threw a rock softly. • Juliet is standing in the east window. • Juliet's beauty shines like the sun. • Romeo has never been in love before. 5. Read the following line from Act IV, Scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet, when Capulet speaks of his daughter’s apparent death: Death lies on her like an untimely frost Upon the sweetest flower of all the field. How does Shakespeare use a simile to emphasize the tragedy of the apparent death? • By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too young to die. • By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too beautiful to die. • By comparing Juliet to a flower with frost on it, Capulet emphasizes that Juliet’s body is cold. • By comparing Juliet to a flower with frost on it, Capulet emphasizes that he has lost the best daughter in the land.

1. Actions in haste can bring about destruction.

Many events in the story happen because of the impulsivity of the characters. Tybalt promises to seek revenge on Romeo because he's quick to anger when Romeo shows up at the Capulet party. Romeo is quick to kill Tybalt after the death of Mercutio. Juliet is quick to kill herself (even though she just pretends at first) when Romeo is banished. Romeo is quick to kill himself when he hears that Juliet is dead. Juliet then actually kills herself immediately after seeing Romeo dead. All this death is destruction.

2. Juliet is actually weeping over Romeo's banishment.

Paris thinks that Juliet is weeping over Tybalt's death, but really it's Romeo's banishment because of Tybalt's death. Paris thinks that Juliet is to distraught to think of love and yet the person she thinks of is her love.

3. A nurse claims to be too tired to give Juliet Romeo's message.

The nurse drags out the message she brings back to Juliet by saying she is so out of breath she can't deliver the message. Juliet tells her if you have enough breath to tell me your out of breath you can give me the message! The nurse keeps delaying because she enjoys the attention she is getting from Juliet.

4. Juliet's beauty shines like the sun.

It's Shakespeare, he wouldn't use this beautiful imagery to simply say that Juliet is standing at the window...there's always more. Also, Romeo is in love with Juliet, his descriptive language is used to show how his world revolves around Juliet, his sun.

5. By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too beautiful to die.

In the lines, he describes the flower as sweetest which shows its beauty. The flower is not shown to have any age so this eliminates the second best option.

Using what you learned in this unit, record evidence from the play in the Traitor or Patriot chart that could be used to prove Brutus is either a traitor or a patriot. Record your evidence, identify if it supports that Brutus is a traitor or patriot, and explain why you think the way you do. An example showing Brutus as traitor and as a patriot is completed for you as an example.

#1) Prove that Brutus is either a traitor or a patriot.

Answer: According to the previous unit he play both roles. This conclusion came from the fact that he killed his own friend Caesar, who considered Brutus a good friend, and said that he had done this act in order to save Rome from dictatorship.

#2) Identify if it supports that Brutus is a traitor or patriot, and explain why you think the way you do.

Answer: Both of the roles are played by Brutus. But in my opinion he was a traitor because he killed his own friend and then used the excuse of saving Rome from dictatorship. Also after killing Caesar and being totally okay with it he then went on to try to convince the townspeople to believe he was a good person and a noble being.

Which of the following statements about using supporting materials in your speeches is not true? a. Each piece of support should be clearly relevant to the point it is used to support. b. Each piece of support needs to be developed to the point that audience members can both understand the item of support AND see how the item backs up the point it is used to support. c. Each piece of supporting material should meet the demands that the audience and the occasion place on the kind of material that is likely to be received favorably. d. The presentation should rely excessively on one type of support (such as examples).

Answer:

The untrue statement is indeed letter D.

D. The presentation should rely excessively on one type of support (such as examples).

Explanation:

A presentation should NOT rely excessively on one type of support, but should have a variety of materials. Using only one type risks making the presentation flat or boring, especially because the audience is constituted of different people who have different ways of taking information in. For some, examples and anecdotes are good enough, while for others statistics and graphs are indispensable. Some examples of supporting materials are: personal experience, hypothetical examples, books, scientific articles, case studies, statistics etc.

Two pairs of dancers encounter each other on the dance floor. The couples switch partners with each woman now dancing with the other man. This situation is analogous to what kind of reaction?

This situation is analogous to a double replacement reaction. A double-replacement reaction occurs when parts of two ionic composites are exchanged, making two new composites. One characteristic of this kind of reaction is that there are two compounds as reactants and two different compounds as products. So, in this case we can relate with it because there are two new couples with the same members that formed the previous couples.
