QUESTION POSTED AT 01/04/2020 - 01:19 PM

1. Read the following lines from the poem "Eve to Her Daughters" in which the speaker describes Adam. In the process he had to on reveal everything, because he believed that mechanism was the whole secret- he was always mechanical minded. He got to the very inside of the whole machine exclaiming as he went, so this is how it works! And now that I know how it works, why, I must have invented it. As for God and the Others, they cannot be demonstrated, and what can I be demonstrated don't exist. You see, he had always been jealous. The details in these lines lead the reader to understand the Adam does not believe in the reality of A. God B. Secrets C. Inventions D. Mechanics 2. Read the following paragraph from "Saboteur" Then it dawned on him that Fenjin must have been sent over by his bride. What a stupid woman! A book worm, Who only know how to read for novels! He had expected that she would contact the school's Security Section, which would for sure send a cadre here. Fenjin held no official position; he merely worked in a private law firm that hurt just to lawyers; in fact, they had little business except for some detective work for men and women who suspected their spouses of having extramarital affairs. Mr. Chiu was overcome with a wave of nausea. Which of the following words best describes Mr. Chiu's feelings toward his wife? A. Infuriated B. Patient C. Patronizing D. Understanding Please check my work. I think 1 is A and 2 is Either A or C but I'm guessing it may be C but I think I may be incorrect on my guess.

Answer: 1. A. God

              2. A. Infuriated

Explanation:

Let's talk about the first question. From the excerpt, we may understand that Adam, after having a revelation, after understanding "how it works", concludes that, if he knows he it works, he "must have invented it". That seems to mean that, once man became rational and capable of logical thinking, he started to question God's existence - if God cannot be explained, he does not exist. Thus, the best answer seems to be letter A.

Let's move on to the second question. Right from the beginning of the excerpt, we may understand that Mr. Chiu is mad at his wife to the point of thinking "What a stupid woman!" Since she didn't do what he expected the way he expected it to be done, he thinks of her as useless. The adjective "patronizing" describes someone who acts with a superior attitude toward others, in a condescending manner, and that's why I do not believe it to be the best option. His words would be a mix of pity, contempt, and politeness. From the exclamation "What a stupid woman!", we can tell he's simply infuriated. So, I believe the best option to be letter A.

Read the excerpt from "Why I Wrote 'The Yellow Wallpaper.'" This wise man put me to bed and applied the rest cure, to which a still-good physique responded so promptly that he concluded there was nothing much the matter with me, and sent me home with solemn advice to “live as domestic a life as far as possible,” to “have but two hours’ intellectual life a day,” and “never to touch pen, brush, or pencil again” as long as I lived. What social attitude of Gilman’s era does this excerpt best demonstrate? A.Women who were not married were considered dangerous. B.Women were not allowed to vote in local or national elections. C.Women were not supposed to exert themselves much physically. D.Women were not considered suited to work outside the home.

Answer: D.Women were not considered suited to work outside the home.

In this excerpt, Gilman describes her illness, and the treatment that she received by her doctor. Once Gilman felt fine, the doctor told her that she needed to remain at home and have a domestic life in order to be healthy. The doctor believed that Gilman's intellectual and public life was the reason for her illness. This shows that people at the time did not believe women should do much work outside of the home.

Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man when I could get it and bear the lash as well!

Question: This passage helps to establish Sojourner Truth's credibility by showing that she:

Options:    

  • A) Has struggled as both a slave and a woman.
  • B) Believes women are not able to work as hard as men.
  • C) Hates having to work so hard for such a small sum of money.
  • D) Was often punished for bad behavior as a slave.

Answer: The correct answer is option: A) Has struggled as both a slave and a woman.

Explanation: ''Ain't I a woman?'' is a speech given by Sojourner Truth in 1851 at the Women's Convention in Akron, Ohio. She talks about how she was treated absolutely horrifically. She mentions that she got worked like a man and beaten like a man, so she asks the question, ''ain't I a woman?'' to confront racism and people who consider her less of a woman and human being only because of her color. She proves that she has struggled as both a slave, a woman and a human being.

During the spring of every year, the narrator contacts his older neighbour and they walk the wall as well as to replace the walls which have fallen.

LAURA: Hello, mother, I was—[She makes a nervous gesture toward the chart on the wall. AMANDA leans against the shut door and stares at LAURA with a martyred look.] In the excerpt from The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams, which element of drama is contained in brackets? dialect dialogue narration stage directions

Additionally, these directions are usually linked to the lines or dialogues of the characters and included during scripts (a document that has all the information of a play) by using brackets or similar punctuation marks to separate the dialogues or words of the characters from their movements, gestures, and attitudes (stage directions). Considering the previous ideas, it can be concluded the information from the excerpt "The Glass Menagerie" that appears on brackets are D. the stage directions as this show the attitude and movements of the characters as in "She makes a nervous gesture toward the chart on the wall" which is the purpose of stage directions.

Within the Chain of Being, which statement would most likely be true? A. Women ranked above men. B. Kings ranked above God. C. Noblemen ranked above merchants. D. Servants ranked above demons.

The correct answer is C. Noblemen ranked above merchants

Explanation:

The Chain of Being refers to a hierarchical system that emerged during the Middle Ages and it linked to Christianity, in this system all the beings and elements in life are organized and classified from a state of non-being to being, in this hierarchy God is on the top and it is followed by the angels, later by the demons, the man, the animal, the pants and finally the minerals. Additionally, to this, in each category there are subdivisions and in the case of the man the system follows the medieval social system in which the king is at the top, and it is followed by the nobility, then by the knights and vassals, then by the merchants, artisans and farmers and at the bottom there are the peasants and the serfs, also, men are considered to be over women. Considering this information, the statement that is true is that "Noblemen ranked above merchants" because as part of the medieval social hierarchy which is the one that determined the way men were organized in the Chain of Being, the Nobles were on the second more important position while the merchants were almost at the bottom of the hierarchy.
