Instead of saying 'a years is like a Ferris wheel', you can just say that without 'like', and the meaning will be the same. The whole line is a metaphor, so symbolic meaning of something else.

Read the following passage and then select the correct answer: According to some sources, there are more than 80 million cats living in American houses as pets today. Cats offer companionship and relaxation, but they also have specific needs that require pet owners' attention. Just as a human being must clean his dishes and his bathroom, a cat needs to have a bacteria-free food dish and litter box. With these facts in mind, Americans need to begin working on ways to improve the cleanliness of home areas for their cats.

I think the question asks for which of the sentences in the text state the specific opinion of the author, rather than repeating facts from elsewhere. This sentence is this one: 

With these facts in mind, Americans need to begin working on ways to improve the cleanliness of home areas for their cats

You can see that it's a recommendation through the verb "need to".

In Sophocles' Antigone, why does Creon have Antigone locked "in a vault of stone" with a supply of food rather than having her publicly executed as his own law demands?

I think he locked her 'in a vault of stone' because he didn't want to be the one responsible for her death, he was afraid of being judged for that, primarily by his son who was Antigone's fiance, and then by his own people.

Which approach is not used when making an appeal to pathos? emotional or passionate statements attention to facts and statistics vivid descriptions or images personal stories or memories

Answer:

B). Attention to facts and statistics.

Explanation:

Pathos is one of the three 'modes of persuasion' as proposed by the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle that helps to convince the readers through an emotional appeal to believe in a particular idea or claim presented by the author and evoke desired feelings or response from them.

As per the given question, the approach that does not correspond to the above claim would be 'attention to facts and statistics' as pathos adopts an emotional approach that has no direct affiliation to factual details. While the other options(emotional statement, vivid descriptions, personal stories) would assist in convincing and persuading the readers to accept the ideas proposed. Thus, option B is the correct answer.
