Evidently we can assume that through the use of the verb 'struggle' it's not only physically with her shoe but possibly in her life situation - she's finding it difficult to live in her squalid conditions possibly because she's got something else she needs to take care of ...

Jonathan Swift wittily wrote "Travels to Several Nations of the World" as a satire to depict the way kings governed and how society was constructed. By describing the advances in the nations that Gulliver visits and the great manners that smart horses can demonstrate, it is possible to say that he wanted to correct human failings and remind people of basic human kindness.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/03/2020 - 07:18 PM

Which excerpt from the letter to the editor includes an opinion? Our city currently has a dense downtown area and then a massive amount of sprawl reaching out in every direction—the sprawl takes up seventy-five percent of the city’s land. We need to ask for a change at this critical juncture, as our city rapidly expands at an unprecedented rate. The residents who live in these faraway suburbs often work downtown, where the majority of businesses are still located. Besides the business district, the city university, our two museums, and the most popular places to shop—including four grocery stores—are all in the center of the city, to name just a few key places.

In order for us to know when personal opinion is being used in contrast to objective information, we need to think about two things; the first, the grammatical use of the personal pronouns, which allow us to know if the language being used by the writer is subjective and personal, or academic and objective and the second is, the way that the writer exposes the information, whether it communicates objective and provable data, or if it is evident that the information springs from personal views and perceptions. Grammatically, when an author uses the first, or second, singular or plural pronouns (I, you, our, we), they are establishing that their sentence is not merely academic and objective, but rather an expression of a personal stance on a topic. In this particular case, given these two characteristics, we would have to choose option B: We need to ask for a change at this critical juncture, as our city rapidly expands at an unprecedented rate because the information put forth in this sentence exposes the thoughts and reactions of the writer towards an objective situation, instead of merely stating verifiable fact.
