Read the excerpt from Romeo and Juliet, Act I, Scene v. Romeo: O! then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do; They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair. Juliet: Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake. Romeo: Then move not, while my prayers’ effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purg’d. [Kissing her.] Juliet: Then have my lips the sin that they have took. Romeo: Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urg’d! Give me my sin again. This is an example of dramatic irony because A) the audience is relieved that Romeo has found a suitable partner. B) the audience is eager to discover Rosaline’s opinion of the couple. C) Romeo and Juliet are shy characters who usually avoid social events. D) Romeo and Juliet have yet to discover that they are from feuding families.

Answer:

Letter A.

Explanation:

What we can conclude from the excerpt given: First, that Romeo shows Juliet his intetion to kiss her, and she accepts.

'...while my prayers’ effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purg’d.'

His 'sin' being to have asked the 'Saint to grant him Juliet's kiss.' - to which she replies 'Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake.' meaning that no saint can grant him her kiss for him (he must take it himself). Then he purges his sin from his lips by hers. (kisses her).

After kissing, she jests that her lips now have his sin, to which he replies that he wants his sin back (demands a new kiss) - This reveals that they have found in each other a suitable partner.

Make a story using these words: Atmosphere, Energy, Feature, Measurment, Rotation, Solar system, Solid, Surface. I will give 78 points!

The atmosphere is a peculiar thing. There can be different things in the air and we wouldn't even know it. We inhale different things from the atmosphere and we sometimes don't even notice.

Energy is in everything. We have energy, a pencil has energy, heck! A piece of cheese string has energy. When we move, we are using our energy, when a pencil writes or falls, that is energy. When we eat cheese, it turns to energy in our stomachs!

An air mass changes _____. A. the rotation direction of cyclones B. weather that is hundreds of kilometers away from it C. the weather of the area over which it moves D. the elevation of underlying areas

The correct answer is C, as an air mass changes the weather of the area over which it moves.

An air mass is defined as a large portion of air, with a horizontal extension of several hundred kilometers, whose physical properties, especially temperature, moisture content and vertical temperature gradient, are more or less uniform.

Between two air masses fronts are formed, which can have different temperatures.

The cold front is a band of instability that occurs when a mass of cold air approaches a hot air mass. The cold air, being more dense, generates a "wedge" and gets under warm and less dense air.

The cold fronts move quickly. They are strong and can cause atmospheric disturbances such as thunderstorms, squalls, tornadoes, strong winds and short snowstorms before the cold front passes, accompanied by dry conditions as the front advances.

The warm front is the front of a warm air mass that moves to replace a cold air mass. Generally, with the passage of the warm front the temperature and humidity increase, the pressure drops and although the wind changes it is not as pronounced as when a cold front passes.

An occluded front is formed when a slower moving hot front is followed by a cold front with faster displacement. The cold wedge-shaped front reaches the hot front and pushes it upwards. The two fronts continue moving one behind the other and the line between them is what forms the occluded front.

Finally the stationary front is a limit between two air masses, of which none is strong enough to replace the other.

In the 1800s, the United States was still a very young nation, trying to solidify its identity. The Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain, a fast development of society following the introduction of machines. The United States was slower than Great Britain to fully embrace the changes. Yet key technological developments caused a rapid growth in American urban areas.Better farming methods and tools in the 1800s increased food production. Americans were able to grow enough food for their families as well as to sell. The abundance caused food prices to fall.The expansion of cotton and the growth of textile factories in northern states helped produce the first wave of American industry. More people turned to work in northern factories as a way to support their families. Thousands of immigrants to the United States also settled in or near port cities, looking for work. Even today, the need for work is a common reason people move to urban areas.As a result, cities grew in numbers of people and physical space. As more people and businesses moved in, they needed buildings for living and working. They needed ways to move around the city. We call this process urbanization.In 1820, the United States had only a few cities of 10,000 residents or more. About seven percent of U.S. residents lived in urban areas. The number of cities with more than 10,000 people grew quickly over the next 40 years, especially in the Northeast and Midwest. By 1860, about 20 percent lived in cities. Philadelphia and New York City were the most populated cities in 1860 and would soon reach one million residents.The urbanization of the United States quickened due to technology improvements. Without innovations in food production, the factories could not have grown so quickly. The trend quickened after 1860 and continued throughout the 21st century as well. By 2007, more Americans lived in or near cities than they did in rural areas.Which sentence from the conclusion paragraph best rephrases the author's thesisA) The urbanization of the United States quickened due to technology improvements B) Without innovations in food productions, the factories could not have grown so quicklyC) The trend quickened after 1860 and continued through the 21st century as wellD) By 2007, more Americans lived in or near cities than they did in rural areas

The Answer is A. The urbanization of the United States quicked due to technology improvements

Ravenous, and now very faint, I devoured a spoonful or two of my portion without thinking of its taste; but the first edge of hunger blunted, I perceived I had got in hand a nauseous mess; burnt porridge is almost as bad as rotten potatoes; famine itself soon sickens over it. The spoons were moved slowly: I saw each girl taste her food and try to swallow it; but in most cases the effort was soon relinquished. Breakfast was over, and none had breakfasted. (Jane Eyre; Chapter 5, pp. 30-31) In the excerpt above, what is the depiction of the food an example of? A. characterization B. a foil C. mood D. a motif

Answer:

d) a motif

Explanation:

A motif is any component, subject, thought or idea that is continually present through the whole writing. Utilizing a motif alludes to the reiteration of a particular topic ruling the scholarly work.

Motifs are truly discernible and assume a noteworthy role in characterizing the idea of the story, the course of occasions and the very texture of the abstract piece.

I choose topic B.

I love football. It has been my favourite since i was a little boy. What i like about it is it's specialization. In other types of sport, let's say baseball, a player need to be good at everything to be able to stand at the field, from catching, throwing, running, etc.

But not in Football. In football, a player only need to have 1 skill to be able contribute on the field. If you're good at running ? be a running back, if you're good at catching ? Receiver will you go. Football exploited one special talent of each athletes and the combination of these talents, create a strong team dynamic as a whole

QUESTION POSTED AT 27/02/2020 - 10:16 AM

Lord of the Flies is an allegorical tale about the conflict between “civilization” and “savagery”. When a group of English schoolboys become plane-wrecked on an uninhabited island, they first attempt to band together to create an orderly society. Food is gathered and signal fires are lit, but slowly a game of tug of war between chaos and order ensues. I wanted a short, readable book to ease me into the world of classic literature for my 2012 Classics Challenge and so I knew Lord of the Flies would be my first book. I was also aware that it had been placed into the dystopian genre. 58 years after Lord of the Flies was published, dystopia has become hugely popular, and so I wanted to see how it compared to the other dystopian books I’d read over the past year or so. I enjoyed finally getting to read this classic and slowly discovering the meanings behind certain things I’d seen or heard about before, such as the bloody sow’s head, the broken glasses, and why it is even called Lord of the Flies. I also appreciated the symbolism of the characters: Ralph, Jack, Simon and Piggy, as well things like the conch and the beast. I particularly enjoyed the first half of the book and seeing how the characters dealt with being stranded on a desert island. However, I was pretty distracted, for various reasons, while reading the rest of the book, and so I didn’t immerse myself into it as much as I should have. Even so, it was satisfying reading a novel that wasn’t completely straightforward, that had double meanings behind everything. Although, I did appreciate that I didn’t have to write a book report on it afterwards… As for the dystopian aspect, this surprised me. If I didn’t already know that it was considered to be an early dystopian novel, I’m not sure that it would’ve crossed my mind to put it in there. The novel’s less to do with social structure and social control systems and more to do with the conflicts within “human nature”. I tend to lean more towards the definition of “dystopia” meaning that society’s in a repressive and controlled state, rather than simply dysfunctional or a “bad place”. Overall, Lord of the Flies is an extremely readable classic. I can see why it has been chosen to study in schools - it’s about a lot more than the story, but I can also see that it’s easy to analyse it too much. It’s a shame that this has resulted in a lot of students despising the book. It’s worth reading on your own so you can make up your own mind about what the story represents. Rating: ★★★½ What type of writing is this? Question 1 options: A)Expository B)Persuasive C)Descriptive D)Narrative For this I chose persuasive s my answer .but it kind of seem descriptive .Therefore I'm torn on this.Thanks for the help.

I read it and i'd personally pick descriptive. just because, at the end it encourages you to read the book yourself. nowhere else in the writing does it try and sway you towards reading it.
