And when they jumped up and ran out of the potato rows, Mr. Sniggers thought they were boys playing tricks. 2.

Answer: 2. Then the blue foxes and the yellow flongboos pattered pitty-pat, pitty-pat, each with feet and toenails, ears and hair, everything except tails, patter scritch scratch over the stone floor out into the train shed.

Explanation: An onomatopoeia is a figure of speech that consists in creating or using words that imitate a sound (it can be any sound, from an animal, an object, etc.). In the given excerpts, the one that contains an example of onomatopoeia is the option 2. It uses the words "pitty-pat, pitty-pat" and "scritch scratch" to imitate the sound of the blue foxes and yellow flongboos pattering with their feet, toenails, ears and hair.

PLZ HELP I began by congratulating the family members and teachers for being steady beacons for those young people. In a society that undervalues families and educators, they had truly lived their commitments. As I was planning the talk I would give to this group, I wondered how best to create an occasion for reflection. What could I say to the audience about the daily struggle to create a meaningful life? Which explains why Mora uses two modes of communication? The reason for both the speech and the essay is to congratulate hardworking students. The reason for both the speech and the essay is to raise money for underprivileged families. The reason she writes the speech is to encourage thoughtful reflection, while the reason for her essay is to encourage a larger audience to do the same. The reason she writes the speech is to celebrate teachers, while the reason for her essay is to share with a larger audience her accomplishments in teaching.

Answer: The reason she writes the speech is to encourage thoughtful reflection, while the reason for her essay is to encourage a larger audience to do the same.

This is an essay about the process of writing a speech. This means that the author is sending a message through two different modes of communication. The author explains that the reason she wrote the speech was to congratulate teachers and families, but more importantly, to encourage reflection ("I wondered how best to create an occasion for reflection"). On the other hand, the reason she is writing the essay is to share the experience. In this way, she is hoping she can encourage this reflection in a larger audience.

Any suggestion on how to make this essay better? Also I don't know where I should put paragraph breaks: I am a botanist or a plant scientist. I study botany, or in other words, the science of plants. As a botanist, it’s my job to study plants. I study everything I can about plants, no matter what they look like. I study plant anatomy, like genetics, structure and chemical makeup; plant physiology, like the effects of temperature, light, and humidity; plant processes, such as reproduction, respiration and photosynthesis; and plant economics, including the cultivation of plants for food, fibers, and pharmaceuticals. My average salary for my career is $64,992 and the largest salary I could earn is $90,490. As a botanist, I travel on some days, do plant experiments in greenhouses, but I’m usually stuck in a lab looking through a microscope at plant cells. There are more than three hundred thousand species of plants that we know of, meaning there is always more that we don’t know of about these plants to be discovered. There are different types of botanists, like agronomists that specialize in the study of crops and grasses, marine botanists that study plant life in the ocean, and plant taxonomists that identify and classify plants. Many botanists, like myself, teach in colleges and universities. Although there many different types of botanists we all study some sort of plant. Botanists use different types of equipment like microscopes to do their work. Botanists may work alone or in a team. Most entry-level botanists need a bachelor's or master's degree in botany, plant science, biology or something similar. If you want a more advanced position, you will need a doctoral degree. I hope this educated you on botanists and maybe even convince you a little to become a botanist like I did.

Read the excerpt from Romeo and Juliet, Act I, Scene v. Romeo: O! then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do; They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair. Juliet: Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake. Romeo: Then move not, while my prayers’ effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purg’d. [Kissing her.] Juliet: Then have my lips the sin that they have took. Romeo: Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urg’d! Give me my sin again. This is an example of dramatic irony because A) the audience is relieved that Romeo has found a suitable partner. B) the audience is eager to discover Rosaline’s opinion of the couple. C) Romeo and Juliet are shy characters who usually avoid social events. D) Romeo and Juliet have yet to discover that they are from feuding families.

Answer:

Letter A.

Explanation:

What we can conclude from the excerpt given: First, that Romeo shows Juliet his intetion to kiss her, and she accepts.

'...while my prayers’ effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purg’d.'

His 'sin' being to have asked the 'Saint to grant him Juliet's kiss.' - to which she replies 'Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake.' meaning that no saint can grant him her kiss for him (he must take it himself). Then he purges his sin from his lips by hers. (kisses her).

After kissing, she jests that her lips now have his sin, to which he replies that he wants his sin back (demands a new kiss) - This reveals that they have found in each other a suitable partner.

"I am beloved of beauteous Hermia. Why should not I then prosecute my right?"

In this dialogue Lysander states that he es just as noble and rich as Demetrius, but more important than that he loves Hermia and she loves him back, so why wouldn´t by all the rules of the men marry the woman that he loves and loves him back.
