Which of the following events reveals that Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a medieval romance? A.Sir Gawain uses his cunning to trick the Green Knight. /B. Sir Gawain begins a romantic relationship with Bertilak’s wife./C. Sir Gawain stands up to defend his lord against a supernatural being.

I believe the correct answer is C. Sir Gawain stands up to defend his lord against a supernatural being.
Medieval romance doesn't necessarily have to do with romantic feelings of love and desire -  it refers to heroic deeds and valiant knights, which is why Sir Gawain and the Green Knight fits perfectly in that description.

As you read Act 3 and Act 4 of The Taming of the Shrew, notice events which take place to help develop the plot. Identify which part of the plot is being developed (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, or resolution), include the Act and Scene numbers along with the text, and write an explanation/analysis of what is taking place. You may also include events from Act 1 or Act 2.

I cannot write an analysis for you, but I can help you with some of the terms. Exposition is the insertion of important information by the narrator; for example, including information that explains a character's back story or a past event. Rising action is the action that leads up to the climax of the story, which is the most important part of the story. From there, the action that occurs is falling action, which leads to the resolution, in which things are wrapped up and ended. Hope this helps.

Which of these events disrupted Great Britain during the reign of King George V? A. civil war in Ireland B. a rift between the king and Parliament C. the loss of British colonies D. war in India and East Africa

The correct answer is A, as during the reign of King George V, a civil war in Ireland disrupted Great Britain.

George inherited the throne at a politically turbulent time. The previous year, the House of Lords, dominated by conservatives and unionists, rejected the budget proposal of David Lloyd George, then Minister of Finance, which introduced new taxes that affected wealthy people to finance social welfare programs, leading the contrary to the usual convention that lords did not veto budgets. The liberal prime minister, H. H. Asquith, had asked the previous king to give him guarantees to appoint enough liberal lords to force the approval of the budget through the chamber. Edward had reluctantly agreed, as long as the lords rejected the budget after two successive elections. After the general elections of January 1910, the Conservative lords approved the budget.

The general elections of 1910 left the Liberals as a minority government dependent on the support of the Irish nationalists. As a reward for the support, Asquith introduced legislation that would give autonomous government to Ireland, but the conservatives and unionists opposed it. The mood was warmed by the Home Rule proposal, which would not be possible without the respective law of Parliament, relations between the old Knollys and the Conservatives became tense and this was driven to retreat. Desperate to avoid the prospect of a civil war in Ireland between unionists and nationalists, George convened a meeting of all parties at Buckingham Palace in July 1914, in an attempt to negotiate an agreement. The agreement ended on September 18, 1914,  when the king - having considered vetoing the legislation - gave his consent to the law of the autonomous government, but his execution was postponed due to the outbreak of the First World War.

The political turmoil in Ireland continued when the nationalists began the struggle for independence; George expressed his horror at the killings approved by the government and the reprisals against Prime Minister David Lloyd George. At the opening session of the Northern Ireland Parliament on June 22, 1921, the King called for conciliation. A few days later a truce was agreed. The negotiations between Great Britain and the Irish secessionists led to the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty. At the end of 1922 Ireland was divided, the Irish Free State was established and Lloyd George left the government.

Match each narrator from the first 3 sections of The Sweet Hereafter with the type of first person narrator they represent. Dolores Driscoll Read Answer Items for Question 1 Billy Ansel Read Answer Items for Question 1 Mitchell Stephens Read Answer Items for Question 1 Answer A. First person major B. First person observer C. First person minor

Answer:

The following are each narrator from the first 3 sections of The Sweet Hereafter with the type of first person narrator they represent:

Dolores Driscoll: First person major

Billy Ansel: First person minor

Mitchell Stephens: First person observer

Explanation:

These three characters are three out of the four narrators that tell the story in the novel "The Sweet Hereafter" written by Russell Banks. They all are first person narrators as they are telling the story in their own voice as it happens through their eyes. Dolores Driscoll is the first person major as she is the main narrator of the story. She was a school driver and was driving the bus school as the accident occurs, therefore making her a key character within the story. Billy Ansel is a first person minor narrator, as he was a witness of the accident and was, with the firefighters, above the first people at the accident scene. Then there is Mitchell Stephens, who acts as a first person observer narrator, as he arrives in Sam Dent to investigate the accident. He is an observer of every person involved in it and is trying to find out exactly what has happened, which makes him an observer of the main characters from an outside perspective.

It really depends, because any of these points of view could be used appropriately.
I would say that the best type of narration would be first person or third person limited, given that Suyuan doesn't know everything about everyone, so she cannot be omniscient.
You would either write: Suyuan thought that.. or I think that... (referring to Suyuan).
