Which sentence is punctuated incorrectly? A. He explained the principle of internal-combustion (although not very well) B. John Lennon (1940-1980) was a founding member of The Beatles. C. The Latin expression "per se" ("in itself") has found wide use in legal circles. D. Fredrick (not known as "Tex") was becoming a well-known animator.

Answer:

Option A. He explained the principle of internal-combustion (although not very well)

Explanation:

Option A is missing a period at the end of the sentence.

Periods are used at the end of any sentence that is intended to make a statement. The period should be placed directly behind the last letter of the last word of the sentence.

In this case, after finishing a sentence with parenthesis, a period should be set after the parenthesis, not after the last word inside it.

"... (although not very well)."

According to Swift, what was the purpose of publishing Gulliver's Travels? A. He wanted to make fun of the upper class of England and their practices. B. He wanted to insult political officials so English society would call for their executions. C. He wanted to entertain readers with a funny and heartwarming story highlighting English characters. D. He wanted to correct human failings and remind people of basic human kindnesses

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.

Which statement best describes Emily Dickinson and her poetic style? a) Dickinson writes unusual titles for her poems. b) Dickinson writes with creative punctuation. c) Dickinson writes poems that do not rhyme. d) Dickinson writes from a third-person point of view.

To the best of my knowledge the right option is B; Dickinson writes with creative punctuation.

Dickinson most often punctuated her poems with dashes, rather than the more common array of periods, commas, and other punctuation marks.  She also capitalized interior words, not just words at the beginning of a line.

Generally, Dickinson´s poems lack a tittle.Her poems are now generally known by their first lines or by the numbers assigned to them by posthumous editor. Furthermore, she used to write in first person as in most lyric poetry.

Besides, sometimes she broke some of her poems into stanzas, but in others, there were no stanza breaks.

Do you think people rely too much or too little on body language when communicating? Why?

Body language during communication can mean many things, the person might want to see if the person is following along to what they are saying or they just feel as if they are not communicating properly if its not used. With that said not a lot of people use body language, most people who seems to use it are speech givers, or public talkers. Maybe its a nervous habit for some, but its not a reliance so no I don't believe they do.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/03/2020 - 12:39 PM

1. Achilles agrees with Ajax that he is clinging to his anger over Agamemnon's insult. Many of the choices Achilles makes are based on that anger. However, when Achilles sends Patroclus into the fray, he advises him to drive back the Trojans but to stay away from the city's walls, lest he be killed. These actions give depth to Achilles. Describe Achilles based on his actions and his interactions with others. Use specific details from the text to support your answer.

1. based on his actions, Achilles seems to be brave by warning Patroclus and helping him so that he would not lose his life. ( Since you did not provide the text for this answer, just search for some parts in the passage that matches this description.)
2. He has been willing to sacrifice his life for his pride. Since Achilles wants to be the hero so much, he puts his life on the line all because of his pride. His pride causes him to act brave and seem fearless but his pride is slowly eating away at him. Because of this, his pride could just be his downfall if it continues.
3. Because of all his pride and wanting to be the hero in everything to save everyone and to be the star, he went against something he could just not beat because of his pride. His pride caused his downfall.
