Select the correct inference of the given passage from "The Cask of Amontillado." "The nitre!" I said; "see, it increases. It hangs like moss upon the vaults. We are below the river's bed. The drops of moisture trickle among the bones. Come, we will go back ere it is too late. Your cough--" "It is nothing," he said; "let us go on. The narrator is worried about the nitre on the walls of the vault. The narrator knows it is already too late for Fortunato to escape. Fortunato is worried about the moisture and bones in the vaults. Fortunato wants to continue their descent into the vaults for the Amontillado.

Answer: I would contend that the right answer is the B) The narrator knows it is already too late for Fortunato to escape.

Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that even though he appears to show concern for Fortunato's health, Montresor, the narrator, is only faking that concern, since his plan is to end with his friend's life, who has humiliated him for so long. He knows that Fortunato is thrilled to taste the Amontillado, and by pretending that he is concerned about his health and his exposure to the harmful nitre, he is only prompting Fortunato's excitement, while progressively reducing his possiblities of escaping.

Helen Grey By Christina Georgina Rossetti Because one loves you, Helen Grey, Is that a reason you should pout, And like a March wind veer about, And frown, and say your shrewish say? Don't strain the cord until it snaps, Don't split the sound heart with your wedge, Don't cut your fingers with the edge Of your keen wit; you may, perhaps. Because you're handsome, Helen Grey, Is that a reason to be proud? Your eyes are bold, your laugh is loud, Your steps go mincing on their way; But so you miss that modest charm Which is the surest charm of all: Take heed, you yet may trip and fall, And no man care to stretch his arm. stoop from your cold height, Helen Grey, Come down, and take a lowlier place; Come down, to fill it now with grace; Come down you must perforce some day: For years cannot be kept at bay, And fading years will make you old; Then in their turn will men seem cold, When you yourself are nipped and grey. Which line from "Helen Grey" implies that the author thinks physical beauty is not the most valuable quality? 1.Because one loves you, Helen Grey / Is that a reason you should pout 2.Your eyes are bold, your laugh is loud / Your steps go mincing on their way 3.But so you miss that modest charm / Which is the surest charm of all 4.Stoop from your cold height, Helen Grey / Come down, and take a lowlier place Thanks for the help!

When they foretell that Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor and king, he is bewildered. Soon after, a soldier informs him that Macbeth is now the Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth wonders to himself whether all the prophecies will come true. Which lines in the excerpt show that Macbeth is on the verge of giving in to temptation, knowing very well that he is considering committing a terrible crime? MACBETH:1.(Aside.) Two truths are told, As happy prologues to the swelling act Of the imperial theme. I thank you, gentlemen. 2.(Aside.) This supernatural soliciting Cannot be ill; cannot be good:—if ill, Why hath it given me earnest of success, Commencing in a truth? I am Thane of Cawdor: 3.If good, why do I yield to that suggestion Whose horrid image doth unfix my hair, And make my seated heart knock at my ribs, Against the use of nature? Present fears Are less than horrible imaginings: My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical, 4.Shakes so my single state of man, that function Is smother'd in surmise; and nothing is But what is not.

After reading the introduction I can see two right answers. Is it acceptable? If so, I considered these excerpts represented below to be correct. If you need only one right answer, I insist on the first one which I mentioned.

This supernatural soliciting
Cannot be ill; cannot be good:—if ill,
Why hath it given me earnest of success,
Commencing in a truth? I am Thane of Cawdor

Shakes so my single state of man, that function
Is smother'd in surmise; and nothing is
But what is not.

Comedies portray humanity's drive for revenge, while tragedies show our forgiving nature. Comedies focus on humanity's depravity, while tragedies demonstrate our graciousness.

Answer:

Comedies end in harmony and new beginnings, while tragedies end on a grave and somber note.

Explanation:

A comedy is a satirical piece of literature that remains cheerful throughout its tone, and it is known to have an ending of the same mood.

When the sniper shoots first the soldier in the armored vehicle and then the old woman, the reader can logically conclude that

That the sniper is the antagonist of that scene, because he shoots, (only if we assume the soldier is there to help the people and the old lady is an innocent bystander), two innocent people. Depending on the backstory of why the sniper was shooting them and why the soldier was even there in the first place, there could be a completely different answer.
