Which lines in this excerpt from Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich reflects the author’s opinion that the members of the medical profession don’t really care about their patients? Peter went to the door, but Ivan Ilyich dreaded being left alone. "How can I keep him here? Oh yes, my medicine." "Peter, give me my medicine." "Why not? Perhaps it may still do some good." He took a spoonful and swallowed it. "No, it won't help. It's all tomfoolery, all deception," he decided as soon as he became aware of the familiar, sickly, hopeless taste. "No, I can't believe in it any longer. But the pain, why this pain? If it would only cease just for a moment!" And he moaned. Peter turned towards him. "It's all right. Go and fetch me some tea." …Her attitude towards him and his diseases is still the same. Just as the doctor had adopted a certain relation to his patient which he could not abandon, so had she formed one towards him—that he was not doing something he ought to do and was himself to blame, and that she reproached him lovingly for this—and she could not now change that attitude. "You see he doesn't listen to me and doesn't take his medicine at the proper time. And above all he lies in a position that is no doubt bad for him—with his legs up." She described how he made Gerasim hold his legs up. The doctor smiled with a contemptuous affability that said: "What's to be done? These sick people do have foolish fancies of that kind, but we must forgive them." NextReset

Bedside manner is considered compassionate, interested, and gentle. This doctor displays none of those qualities. In fact he is contemptuous when discussing a patient's need.

9. Which is an example of faulty coordination? A. Tom Blackenship was not only a childhood friend of Mark Twain’s but also a model for the character Huck Finn. B. Samuel Clemens was born in 1835, and he is better known by the pen name Mark Twain. C. Places that Mark Twain describes in Huckleberry Finn are based on real places in Missouri. D. Mark Twain traveled all over the world, but he never forgot his childhood home in Missouri.

While none of these sentences is particularly horrible, I would say that B is the best example of faulty coordination--if you note that the verbs switch from past to present tense within the same sentence, it draws attention in a very awkward way.  Each clause could be it's own fully developed sentence, with more detail.  The remaining sentences work well as stand alone sentences, and are congruent in structure and content.

Which of these is too broad of a topic for a personal narrative? A. my annual ski trips to Colorado B. when my dog Buddy rescued me at Miller's Pond C. the family vacation when we survived a shipwreck D. the time I helped catch a bank robberI think its C or D undecided

The correct answer is C. The family vacation when we survived a shipwreck

Explanation:

In writing, a topic is considered as broad if too many details and information are necessary to develop the topic. For example, in the case of a personal narrative in which the author aims at explaining a personal experience the topic "The family vacation when we survived a shipwreck" is too broad because this requires the writer to describe multiple events and usually personal narratives are shorter and focus on one specific moment or event rather than multiple events or a long story with many elements.

In which of the following lines does the poet use internal rhyme? "For the moon never beams without brnging me dreams" "if you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar" "if ever two were one then surely we" "Alabanza. Praise the busboy's music, the chime-chime"

I believe the best answer would be the first one, "For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams." Internal rhyme refers to a word in the middle of the line rhyming wjth a word at the end of the line or in the middle of the next line. In this line of poetry, "beams," which is in the middle of the line, rhymes with "dreams," which is at the end of the line. None of the other answers has an internal rhyme. Hope this helps.

Read the excerpt. Till the free soul to a composedness charmed, Finding the elements of rage disarmed, O’er all below a solemn quiet grown, Joys in the inferior world, and thinks it like her own … In these lines from “A Nocturnal Reverie” by Anne Finch, what does the speaker refer to when she says “the inferior world”? the hassle of hectic daily life the world that is inferior to modern life the simpler way of life the world beyond the grave

''the simpler way of life''


In the lines  from “A Nocturnal Reverie” by Anne Finch represented above, the most suitable option that reveals the real sense of the speaker's reference using such words as “the inferior world” is definitely the third one- ''the simpler way of life''. This option looks the only correct for me, so I am pretty sure that you will get the points if you use this one. Do hope you still need it.
