It is this fate, I solemnly assure you, that I dread for you, when the time comes that you make your reckoning, and realize that there is no longer anything that can be done. May you never find yourselves, men of Athens, in such a position! Yet in any case, it were better to die ten thousand deaths, than to do anything out of servility towards Philip [or to sacrifice any of those who speak for your good]. A noble recompense did the people in Oreus receive, for entrusting themselves to Philip’s friends, and thrusting Euphraeus aside! And a noble recompense the democracy of Eretria, for driving away your envoys, and surrendering to Cleitarchus! They are slaves, scourged and butchered! A noble clemency did he show to the Olynthians, who elected Lasthenes to command the cavalry, and banished Apollonides! It is folly, and it is cowardice, to cherish hopes like these, to give way to evil counsels, to refuse to do anything that you should do, to listen to the advocates of the enemy’s cause, and to fancy that you dwell in so great a city that, whatever happens, you will not suffer any harm. In this speech, Demosthenes tries to warn people about an attack on Greece. Which statement best describes Demosthenes's claim? Demosthenes wants Athenians to believe that Athens is secure and no enemy can enter their country. Demosthenes warns Athenians not to be naïve and to be prepared for any circumstances. Demosthenes assures Athenians that nothing will change as long as their enemies don’t attack the city. Demosthenes claims that Athens will be destroyed because several Athenians have joined the enemy’s side. NextReset

From the speech of Demosthenes, he doesn't want the Athenians to refuse to do anything that they should be doing nor rely their safety to the hands of others that could be their enemy. To him, it's a sign of cowardice. The answer is Demosthenes warns Athenians not to be naive and to be prepared for any circumstances.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/01/2020 - 12:18 PM

The Nile: A Source of Sustenance Sustenance played a crucial role in the founding of Egyptian civilization. The Nile was an unending source of sustenance. The Nile made the land surrounding it extremely fertile when it flooded or was inundated annually. The Egyptians were able to cultivate wheat and crops around the Nile, providing food for the general population. Also, the Nile’s water attracted game, such as water buffalo, and, after the Persians introduced them in the 7th century B.C., camels. These animals could be killed for meat, or could be captured, tamed, and used for ploughing—or in the camels' case, traveling. Water was vital to both people and livestock. The Nile was also a convenient and efficient way of transportation for people and goods. Egypt’s stability was one of the best structured in history. In fact, it might easily have surpassed many modern societies.... Which question would be best to ask before reading the rest of the passage? How did the Nile directly affect the stability of Egypt? How might Egypt’s stability have surpassed many modern societies? Why was the Nile an unending source of substance? How did the Nile get its name?

Why is Nile a source of sustenance?

Nile has a direct effect on the economy of Egypt as it enriches the lives of people which makes their society work.

Egypt's stability surpasses modern societies since its only source is Nile but it has given them a lot unlike modern societies which seek for several resources just to make the economy boom.

It's unending in the sense that it's the longest river, but it's an unending source because of its fertility.

Nile means "river valley" which is also the meaning of the Latin word "nilus". Egyptians call Nile, Ar which means "black" because its sedimentary gives a black hue sometimes.

Pronouns in the objective case may function as __________. subjects objects adjectives predicate nominatives

Pronouns in the objective case may function as objects. When it comes to the parts of speech used in the objective case, the only function they can have is that of the object in a sentence. That object can be a direct object, an indirect object, or the object of a preposition. These pronouns thus cannot be subjects, because then they would be in the subjective case. Pronouns cannot be adjectives, and predicate nominatives are only nouns, which pronouns are not.
