Answered by admin AT 18/02/2020 - 11:37 PM

The correct answer is A.

First person point of view is a set of linguistic forms (such as verb forms, pronouns, and inflectional affixes) referring to the speaker or writer of the utterance in which they occur. This point of view is generally limited in that the audience only experiences what the speaker/narrator himself experiences. In this kind of narrative, you are inside a character’s head, watching the story unfold through that character’s eyes.

How could the farmers leave the land behind when the crops were ready for harvest?" 2. Read the following paragraphs from "Cranes." Without a moment's delay, still out of breath from running, they untied the crane's feet and wings. But the bird could hardly walk. It must have been worn out from being bound. The two held it up in the air. Then, all of a sudden, a shot was fired. The crane fluttered its wings a couple of times and came down again. It was shot, they thought. But the next moment, as another crane from a nearby bush fluttered its wings, the boys' crane stretched out its long neck with a whoop and disappeared into the sky. For a long time the two boys could not take their eyes away from the blue sky into which their crane had soared. Which word best describes the mood created by these paragraphs? A. Celebratory B. Comforting C. Admiring***** D. Tranquil I think 1 is A and 2 is C. I'm not 100% sure if I'm correct or not.

Which statement best describes Emily Dickinson and her poetic style? a) Dickinson writes unusual titles for her poems. b) Dickinson writes with creative punctuation. c) Dickinson writes poems that do not rhyme. d) Dickinson writes from a third-person point of view.

To the best of my knowledge the right option is B; Dickinson writes with creative punctuation.

Dickinson most often punctuated her poems with dashes, rather than the more common array of periods, commas, and other punctuation marks.  She also capitalized interior words, not just words at the beginning of a line.

Generally, Dickinson´s poems lack a tittle.Her poems are now generally known by their first lines or by the numbers assigned to them by posthumous editor. Furthermore, she used to write in first person as in most lyric poetry.

Besides, sometimes she broke some of her poems into stanzas, but in others, there were no stanza breaks.

Read the sentence. Past history has taught our community that effective solutions occur only after long thought. Revise the sentence to eliminate redundancy.

Answer:

"History has taught our community that effective solutions occur only after long thought."

Explanation:

In order to eliminate redundancy in this sentence, we need to eliminate the word "past" at the beginning of the sentence. This is because the word is describing "history," but we already know that history refers to the past, which means we do not need this description. Redundancy refers to the use of words that provide information that is unimportant or obsolete because it was already provided in some other way.

2.Read the following paragraph found in the selection from "From Emperor to Citizen." The "Articles for Favorable Treatment" stipulated that I could live temporarily in the Imperial Palace without fixing any definite time limit. Apart from three large halls that were handed over to the Republic, the rest of the Forbidden City continued to belong to the Imperial Palace. It was in this tiny world that I was to spend the most absurd childhood possible until I was driven out by the soldiers of the National Army in 1924. I call it absurd because at a time when China was called a republic and mankind had advanced into the twentieth century, I was still living the life of an emperor, breathing the dust of the nineteenth century. After reading this paragraph, what can the reader most likely conclude about China? A. It is a country that is defined by strict rules.***** B. It is a country that favors tradition over progress. C. It is a country that honors its royalty with extravagant living. D. It is a country that struggled to find its place in a global society. I think the answer is either A or B but I'm not sure. What do you guys think?

Answer:

B. It is a country that favors tradition over progress.  

Explanation:

The text claims that China wanted to keep the traditions of the nineteenth century, even if the world was in the twentieth century and China has shown a promising breakthrough, whether in technology, government, or any other situation in the country. The part of the excerpt that makes clear that China is a country that favors the tradition of progress, is the passage: " I call it absurd because at a time when China was called a republic and mankind had advanced into the twentieth century, I was still living the life of an emperor, breathing the dust of the nineteenth century.

Which of the following are effective strategies for looking up words in the dictionary when reading? Select all that apply. Look up the words right away. Underline words then look them up when you have finished the book. Make a list of words and definitions as you learn them. Don’t bother looking up a word if you can guess the meaning.

Answer:

  • Underline words then look them up when you have finished the book.
  • Make a list of words and definitions as you learn them.

Explanation:

When you are reading a text you may come across unfamiliar words which you do not know the meaning of. However, knowing these words is of utmost importance for a complete understanding of the text, so you should look up the meaning of the words in a dictionary.

You might even stop reading and look up the words right away, but that would slow you down and you might even lose interest in continuing reading that text. For this reason, the best strategies for searching for words you don't know in a dictionary are:

  • Underline words then look them up when you have finished the book.
  • Make a list of words and definitions as you learn them.

With these strategies you will not disturb the reading pace, will finish the text and enrich your vocabulary because you will know new words
