Read the sentences. The siblings were like cats and dogs when left alone together. As a result, the babysitter was careful to keep them separated as much as possible. The author most likely uses the simile to emphasize that A. the siblings were unusually hairy. B. the siblings did not get along well. C. the babysitter was not fond of animals. D. the babysitter was actually taking care of animals.

The author most likely uses the similie, "The siblings were like cats and dogs," to emphasize that the siblings did not get along well (B).

Even though there are cats and dogs that get along well, generally they are like fire and ice, complete opposites. Cats and dogs do not get along and apparently neither do these siblings. The author uses the similie to give the reader more imagery than simply stating the siblings don't get along.

Read the excerpt from A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. I have repeatedly asserted, and produced what appeared to me irrefragable arguments drawn from matters of fact, to prove my assertion, that women cannot, by force, be confined to domestic concerns; for they will, however ignorant, intermeddle with more weighty affairs, neglecting private duties only to disturb, by cunning tricks, the orderly plans of reason which rise above their comprehension. This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by insisting that women deserve to be educated despite their inferior capacity for learning. suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education. asserting that domestic chores offer fulfillment because they require a vast knowledge of the world. claiming that women who excel in domestic roles should be called upon to serve as world leaders.

This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is an exposition on overcoming the oppression and denial of the women in the society. It is a dedication to Charles. M. Talleyrand whose views on women education to Wollstonecraft were repugnant. She blamed the condition of adult women due to the negligence of girl's education. The women in the society only care about being attractive, modest and elegant. They are deprived to defend their fundamental rights and are treated as subordinates.

In her argument, she describes ways in which women combine their silliness. Their silliness includes visiting fortune tellers, reading a stupid novel, rivalries with women, and so forth. Due to women's low status and no education results in women's faults and not due to natural deficiency.

Read the sentence. Past history has taught our community that effective solutions occur only after long thought. Revise the sentence to eliminate redundancy.

Answer:

"History has taught our community that effective solutions occur only after long thought."

Explanation:

In order to eliminate redundancy in this sentence, we need to eliminate the word "past" at the beginning of the sentence. This is because the word is describing "history," but we already know that history refers to the past, which means we do not need this description. Redundancy refers to the use of words that provide information that is unimportant or obsolete because it was already provided in some other way.

2.Read the following paragraph found in the selection from "From Emperor to Citizen." The "Articles for Favorable Treatment" stipulated that I could live temporarily in the Imperial Palace without fixing any definite time limit. Apart from three large halls that were handed over to the Republic, the rest of the Forbidden City continued to belong to the Imperial Palace. It was in this tiny world that I was to spend the most absurd childhood possible until I was driven out by the soldiers of the National Army in 1924. I call it absurd because at a time when China was called a republic and mankind had advanced into the twentieth century, I was still living the life of an emperor, breathing the dust of the nineteenth century. After reading this paragraph, what can the reader most likely conclude about China? A. It is a country that is defined by strict rules.***** B. It is a country that favors tradition over progress. C. It is a country that honors its royalty with extravagant living. D. It is a country that struggled to find its place in a global society. I think the answer is either A or B but I'm not sure. What do you guys think?

Answer:

B. It is a country that favors tradition over progress.  

Explanation:

The text claims that China wanted to keep the traditions of the nineteenth century, even if the world was in the twentieth century and China has shown a promising breakthrough, whether in technology, government, or any other situation in the country. The part of the excerpt that makes clear that China is a country that favors the tradition of progress, is the passage: " I call it absurd because at a time when China was called a republic and mankind had advanced into the twentieth century, I was still living the life of an emperor, breathing the dust of the nineteenth century.
