QUESTION POSTED AT 18/02/2020 - 02:31 PM

1. Which of the following best states a theme of Romeo and Juliet? • Love paves the way for peace. • The power of nature overcomes the will of man. • Love is a gentle force that brings families together. • Actions in haste can bring about destruction. 2. In Act IV, Scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet, Paris tells Friar Lawrence, "Immoderately she weeps for Tybalt's death, / And therefore have I little talked of love." What makes Paris's comment an example of dramatic irony? • Juliet is saddened by the death of Tybalt. • Juliet is actually weeping over Romeo's banishment. • Juliet is pretending to cry in order to avoid seeing Paris. • Juliet was in love with her cousin Tybalt. 3. In Romeo and Juliet, which of the following illustrates Shakespeare's use of comic relief? • A servant explains to Capulet that cooks should lick their own fingers. • Capulet believes that Juliet is dead when she is really only sleeping. • "Honest good fellows, ah, put up, put up; For well you know this is a pitiful case." • A nurse claims to be too tired to give Juliet Romeo's message. 4. Read the following line from Romeo's monologue in Act II, Scene 2 of Romeo and Juliet: But soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun! What is Romeo saying in this passage? • Romeo has broken the window even though he threw a rock softly. • Juliet is standing in the east window. • Juliet's beauty shines like the sun. • Romeo has never been in love before. 5. Read the following line from Act IV, Scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet, when Capulet speaks of his daughter’s apparent death: Death lies on her like an untimely frost Upon the sweetest flower of all the field. How does Shakespeare use a simile to emphasize the tragedy of the apparent death? • By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too young to die. • By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too beautiful to die. • By comparing Juliet to a flower with frost on it, Capulet emphasizes that Juliet’s body is cold. • By comparing Juliet to a flower with frost on it, Capulet emphasizes that he has lost the best daughter in the land.

1. Actions in haste can bring about destruction.

Many events in the story happen because of the impulsivity of the characters. Tybalt promises to seek revenge on Romeo because he's quick to anger when Romeo shows up at the Capulet party. Romeo is quick to kill Tybalt after the death of Mercutio. Juliet is quick to kill herself (even though she just pretends at first) when Romeo is banished. Romeo is quick to kill himself when he hears that Juliet is dead. Juliet then actually kills herself immediately after seeing Romeo dead. All this death is destruction.

2. Juliet is actually weeping over Romeo's banishment.

Paris thinks that Juliet is weeping over Tybalt's death, but really it's Romeo's banishment because of Tybalt's death. Paris thinks that Juliet is to distraught to think of love and yet the person she thinks of is her love.

3. A nurse claims to be too tired to give Juliet Romeo's message.

The nurse drags out the message she brings back to Juliet by saying she is so out of breath she can't deliver the message. Juliet tells her if you have enough breath to tell me your out of breath you can give me the message! The nurse keeps delaying because she enjoys the attention she is getting from Juliet.

4. Juliet's beauty shines like the sun.

It's Shakespeare, he wouldn't use this beautiful imagery to simply say that Juliet is standing at the window...there's always more. Also, Romeo is in love with Juliet, his descriptive language is used to show how his world revolves around Juliet, his sun.

5. By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too beautiful to die.

In the lines, he describes the flower as sweetest which shows its beauty. The flower is not shown to have any age so this eliminates the second best option.

Is the underlined clause independent or subordinate? Steve is going downtown so that he can buy some sneakers. A. independent B. subordinate

A subordinate clause includes a subject and a verb, cant stand alone in a sentence because it doesn't convey a complete idea. But in order for it to form a complete idea, a subordinate clause MUST BE combined with an independent clause. It can be attached before or after the subordinate clause. An Independent clause can stand alone in a sentence and its a complete sentence. Hence Independent meaning can survive alone therefore, which clause is underlined? but here's what you should know Steve is going downtown so that he can buy some sneakers. Subordinate clause: so that he can buy some sneakers If you leave that sentence alone, it becomes a fragment. This explains how subordinate clauses cant stand alone as a sentence. Independent clause: Steve is going downtown This part of the sentence is independent and can survive alone without the other half or the subordinate clause attached to it.

But when the sun was getting low and everything seemed most bewildering and discouraging, I found beautiful Calypso on the mossy bank of a stream, growing not in the ground but on a bed of yellow mosses in which its small white bulb had found a soft nest and from which its one leaf and one flower sprung. The flower was white and made the impression of the utmost simple purity like a snowflower. No other bloom was near it, for the bog a short distance below the surface was still frozen, and the water was ice cold. It seemed the most spiritual of all the flower people I had ever met. I sat down beside it and fairly cried for joy. Choose two of the following phrases Muir uses in his writing about the Calypso Borealis and explain how these words reveal his attitude about nature. on a bed of yellow mosses in which its small white bulb had found a soft nest made the impression of the utmost simple purity like a snowflower the most spiritual of all the flower people I sat down beside it and fairly cried for joy.

Which line from the poem contains a metaphor? Worry makes an ache— stomach swims, head throbs . . . It’s an unwanted guest Like an empty piggy bank

A metaphor compares things WITHOUT using like or as. similes use like or as.
the first one, with "stomach swims", seems like personification,giving an object human qualities.
I would go with the second one, some assume a simile to branch underneath metaphor, I'd assume.
the first one isn't comparing anything, so it's probably the second choice.

Unfortunately we had not brought our reusable water bottles and had to buy bottled water. After which word should a comma be added? reusable bottled Unfortunately bottles

Answer:

Unfortunately.

Explanation:

In the sentence, the comma should be put next to 'unfortunately'. That is because, the rest of the sentence can stand by itself, meaning the rest of the words in the sentence excluding "unfortunately" is an independent clause. They make a meaningful and complete sentence too. Also,"unfortunately" is a dependent clause that starts the sentence. So, the use of the comma after it is a mandatory rule.

So, the final sentence will look like this-

Unfortunately, we had not brought our reusable water bottles and had to buy bottled water.
