1) Which sentence includes the best domain specific words for an informative/explanatory article on how space exploration led to the development of new products for people?

a) Many products we use every day come from technology developed during the moon landing projects.
Comment: this is  a good option, but there aren't many specific words

b) Scientists used MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, to select a suitable landing site on the lunar surface.
THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER - it uses specific terms (MRI) and mentions how it was developed for space exploration. MRI is used in heath exploration today. 


c) Athletic shoes now use the same materials as moon boots.
= no use of very specific language
d) Cordless tools were developed for astronauts to use during space walks.
= there is no talk about the use of the innovation outside of the space exploration context


2) In an informative/explanatory article about vacation planning, which of these concepts would be used to explain something to the reader?

a) Famous beaches - this is not a bad, idea, but it lacks the part of "explaining" - it's rather "describing"

b) Booking a hotel room - this is the best option - a description how to do it would be a good explanation and it's related to vacation planning. 

c) Effective natural sunscreens - again, this is something to mention, but perhaps not to explain, also it's not specific to holidays, as you also need sun protection outside of holidays

d) Travel agent recommendations - this is again not a bad option, but it lacks the "explanation" aspect

Fix the sentence by following the apostrophe rule. A) The books story was pretty exciting, even though its cover was not. B) The books' story was pretty exciting, even though its cover was not. C) The book's story was pretty exciting, even though it's cover was not. D) The book's story was pretty exciting, even though its cover was not. E) The books story was pretty exciting, even though it's cover was not.

Only one sentence is punctuated correctly for apostrophes:

D) The book's story was pretty exciting, even though its cover was not.

What's interesting to note grammarwise is that that sentence - although correct with respect to apostrophes - has a comma splice. The comma is NOT necessary.

Reread the nightmare scene near the end of The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail and describe the main characters and primary events in Henry’s nightmare (pp. 92–96). Also, discuss this scene in particular, and the play in general, as a work of protest against war itself. Do you recognize parallels or discrepancies between the war depicted in this drama and any other war(s) in American history? If so, identify these similarities or differences and discuss how the message of protest in this play can be applied to those wars.

I think that the nightmare scene near at the end of the drama speaks to the idea that war is something that demands moral and active opposition should one feel it. Thoreau feels that the war is unjust. Yet, his nightmare is the result of inaction. The nightmare scene is one in which Thoreau's objection to war is evident. but the lack of action has enabled the machine of war to take over. It renders Thoreau's own voice as ineffective. This is why the ending of the drama has him leaving Walden in the hope of taking a more active and visible role against the nature of war. It is here where the drama speaks about the idea of how one must actively resist war, if they feel compelled to do so. If individuals authentically believe that war is wrong, they simply cannot be passive if they wish to change things. Thoreau's ending is one in which he speaks to the idea of bridging theory and reality. The theoretical principles of opposition to war must be matched to a reality in which individuals actively resist war. This becomes vitally important in both Thoreau's characterization in the drama and the statement being made about the condition of war.

A strange chillness, whether of the body or spirit they could not tell, was creeping gradually over them all. They gazed at one another, and fancied that each fleeting moment snatched away a charm, and left a deepening furrow where none had been before. Was it an illusion? Had the changes of a lifetime been crowded into so brief a space, and were they now four aged people, sitting with their old friend, Dr. Heidegger? "Are we grown old again, so soon?" cried they, dolefully. In truth they had. The Water of Youth possessed merely a virtue more transient than that of wine. The delirium which it created had effervesced away. Yes! they were old again. With a shuddering impulse, that showed her a woman still, the widow clasped her skinny hands before her face, and wished that the coffin-lid were over it, since it could be no longer beautiful. "Yes, friends, ye are old again," said Dr. Heidegger, "and lo! the Water of Youth is all lavished on the ground. Well, I bemoan it not; for if the fountain gushed at my very doorstep, I would not stoop to bathe my lips in it; no, though its delirium were for years instead of moments.
