Gentlemen of the Congress: I have called the Congress into extraordinary session because there are serious, very serious, choices of policy to be made, and made immediately, which it was neither right nor constitutionally permissible that I should assume the responsibility of making. Wilson’s word choice in the paragraph supports the idea that calling Congress into session has major consequences. he is worried about making this decision on his own. he understands the magnitude of the decision the country is faced with. the president cannot make serious decisions without input from Congress.

I believe the best answer for this question is the third one, "he understands the magnitude of the decision the country is faced with." It is not that he cannot make a decision; he simply understands that it is vital to get more input on a decision that will have deep consequences. War is always something that should be seriously considered by numerous parties in order to make the best, most informed decision, and that is what Wilson seeks to do by appealing to Congress. Hope this helps!

After going over the attendance data, I have learned that twenty percent of our students are calling in sick every day, and it would be good to do something to stop this problem. Which appeal is the speaker using in the sentence? ethos, an appeal based on the speaker’s character logos, an appeal based on logic and reason pathos, an appeal based on the audiences’ emotion eros, an appeal based on love

Actually, almost in every persuasive speech (especially in those where the speaker tries to encourage the audience to accept his position\ particular viewpoint on an issue) the orator uses pathos, appealing based on the audience's’ emotion. But in this statement I clearly see that the author shares his experience and represents his research as a fact, demonstrating his will to resolve this problem. So it is definitely logos, an appeal based on logic and reason. There is no mention of hard feelings or character's traits so the other options are extra.
