In a comedy childish rhyme is used to make people laugh, while in a tragedy iambic pentameter is used to make a line seem more important. D. In a comedy the characters battle against the protagonist, while in a tragedy the characters don't fight and usually get along.

The correct answer is A. In a comedy the protagonist is put into funny situations that lead to a happy ending, while in a tragedy the main character suffers bad luck and loss.

Explanation:

A comedy is a genre in literature in which the events, characters, and other elements aim at entertaining to the audience through humor. Also, comedies have a happy ending and the characters are part of a story that is funny and entertaining.

On the opposite, in tragedies the purpose is not to entertain but to depict human suffering, due to this, tragedies have a tragic or sad ending and the story and events presented involve the main character suffering due to bad luck or misfortune, betrayal, loss, etc. Therefore, the option that describes the differences between both genres is A. as in this, the contrast between both is correctly explained.

Which phrase best restates "make haste”? keep up be quiet hurry up be careful

Answer: Hurry up

Explanation: The word "haste" means excessive speed and/or urgency when doing something, so "make haste" is an imperative phrase to cause others to speed up their action. While "be quiet" and "be careful" are unrelated, "keep up" could imply "make haste," but not the other way around.

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

Read Article IX of the United States Bill of Rights: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. What is the main effect of setting the phrase of certain rights off with commas following the introductory phrase the enumeration of the Constitution? It emphasizes the rights are what should not be misconstrued. It emphasizes the rights belong to the people not the Constitution. It makes the rights more important than the Constitution. It suggests that some rights are more important than others.

The correct answer is the first one. Setting the phrase "of certain rights" off with commas following the introductory phrase emphasizes the rights are what should not be misconstrued.

That is to say, it must be taken into account that although only some rights have been enumerated in the Constitution, the other rights not written are also contemplated by it.

Therefore, written rights do not represent a limit to unwritten rights retained by the people.

When making decisions, it is important to question your assumptions. true or false?

Answer:

When making decisions, it is important to question your assumptions is a true statement.

Explanation:

Making assumptions doesn't help us to get to real information, which is really necessary when you are trying to make a decision. We make assumptions based only in our personal point of view or when we relate situations with previously lived ones without taking into consideration if it is applicable or not. In order to make a good decision you first need to gather all the information that you can, then identify the alternatives you have and compare evidence for the different options so that you can make a good and supported decision.

(Incorrect, it seems to refer to the news but it does not state it) Did I get all of these right? It seem unlikely that I would get the same answer three times in a row.

Antecedent is an expression that gives meaning to the word coming after that. For example, I was late to the meeting because police held me for speeding. In this sentence, pronoun me is an explained word which explain another pronoun - I. Antecedent has been used correctly in this sentence. In this question, the first option is correct. Antecedent has been used incorrectly in the second sentence because it's unclear who is considered with the pronoun he. The third option is also an incorrect antecedent because the explaining word has not been given.
