Read the excerpt from Romeo and Juliet, Act I, Scene v. Romeo: O! then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do; They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair. Juliet: Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake. Romeo: Then move not, while my prayers’ effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purg’d. [Kissing her.] Juliet: Then have my lips the sin that they have took. Romeo: Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urg’d! Give me my sin again. This is an example of dramatic irony because A) the audience is relieved that Romeo has found a suitable partner. B) the audience is eager to discover Rosaline’s opinion of the couple. C) Romeo and Juliet are shy characters who usually avoid social events. D) Romeo and Juliet have yet to discover that they are from feuding families.

Answer:

Letter A.

Explanation:

What we can conclude from the excerpt given: First, that Romeo shows Juliet his intetion to kiss her, and she accepts.

'...while my prayers’ effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purg’d.'

His 'sin' being to have asked the 'Saint to grant him Juliet's kiss.' - to which she replies 'Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake.' meaning that no saint can grant him her kiss for him (he must take it himself). Then he purges his sin from his lips by hers. (kisses her).

After kissing, she jests that her lips now have his sin, to which he replies that he wants his sin back (demands a new kiss) - This reveals that they have found in each other a suitable partner.

An air mass changes _____. A. the rotation direction of cyclones B. weather that is hundreds of kilometers away from it C. the weather of the area over which it moves D. the elevation of underlying areas

The correct answer is C, as an air mass changes the weather of the area over which it moves.

An air mass is defined as a large portion of air, with a horizontal extension of several hundred kilometers, whose physical properties, especially temperature, moisture content and vertical temperature gradient, are more or less uniform.

Between two air masses fronts are formed, which can have different temperatures.

The cold front is a band of instability that occurs when a mass of cold air approaches a hot air mass. The cold air, being more dense, generates a "wedge" and gets under warm and less dense air.

The cold fronts move quickly. They are strong and can cause atmospheric disturbances such as thunderstorms, squalls, tornadoes, strong winds and short snowstorms before the cold front passes, accompanied by dry conditions as the front advances.

The warm front is the front of a warm air mass that moves to replace a cold air mass. Generally, with the passage of the warm front the temperature and humidity increase, the pressure drops and although the wind changes it is not as pronounced as when a cold front passes.

An occluded front is formed when a slower moving hot front is followed by a cold front with faster displacement. The cold wedge-shaped front reaches the hot front and pushes it upwards. The two fronts continue moving one behind the other and the line between them is what forms the occluded front.

Finally the stationary front is a limit between two air masses, of which none is strong enough to replace the other.

What can the reader infer about the monk's character based on the fact that a ll of his stories contain the same tragic moral?

The Canterbury tale by Geoffrey Chaucer, the reader can infer about the monk's character based on the fact that all of his stories contain the same tragic moral is that he loses himself in the sermon he is preaching to the audience.

The monk's tale fits the category of parable because it tells the results of different people's good and bad behavior. The Monk tale is a series of tragedies which represents the news that the wealth and position is just an illusion. He refers through the example of many falling from high to low ends, such as the example of Lucifer falling from heaven. Through such example and stories, he continues to show the people who have fallen from grace.

Model of tragedies which Monk offers is a Boethian one that is which is a reminder of the versatility of the life itself, to bring on top to those who are crashing down on the grounds and that the tendency of the feminine, whimsical fortune to spin her wheels. Hence, it is a simple narrative and Boethian reminder that high status often ends inadequately.
