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.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/02/2020 - 05:49 AM

An air mass changes _____. A. the rotation direction of cyclones B. weather that is hundreds of kilometers away from it C. the weather of the area over which it moves D. the elevation of underlying areas

The correct answer is C, as an air mass changes the weather of the area over which it moves.

An air mass is defined as a large portion of air, with a horizontal extension of several hundred kilometers, whose physical properties, especially temperature, moisture content and vertical temperature gradient, are more or less uniform.

Between two air masses fronts are formed, which can have different temperatures.

The cold front is a band of instability that occurs when a mass of cold air approaches a hot air mass. The cold air, being more dense, generates a "wedge" and gets under warm and less dense air.

The cold fronts move quickly. They are strong and can cause atmospheric disturbances such as thunderstorms, squalls, tornadoes, strong winds and short snowstorms before the cold front passes, accompanied by dry conditions as the front advances.

The warm front is the front of a warm air mass that moves to replace a cold air mass. Generally, with the passage of the warm front the temperature and humidity increase, the pressure drops and although the wind changes it is not as pronounced as when a cold front passes.

An occluded front is formed when a slower moving hot front is followed by a cold front with faster displacement. The cold wedge-shaped front reaches the hot front and pushes it upwards. The two fronts continue moving one behind the other and the line between them is what forms the occluded front.

Finally the stationary front is a limit between two air masses, of which none is strong enough to replace the other.

Read the text excerpt to answer the question that follows: "I say, now is the time to press this right. It may be asked, "Why do you want it? Some men have got along very well without it. Women have not this right." Shall we justify one wrong by another? This is a sufficient answer. Shall we at this moment justify the deprivation of the Negro of the right to vote, because someone else is deprived of that privilege?" Which amendment satisfied the goal described in this statement? A. Fifteenth Amendment B. Nineteenth Amendment (THIS ANSWER IS WRONG) C. Twenty-fourth Amendment D. Twenty-sixth Amendment

Answer: The right answer is the A) The Fifteenth Amendment.

Explanation: This is an excerpt from Frederick Douglass' speech “What the Black Man Wants,” which he gave in 1865, before the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society in Boston. In it, he requested that African Americans be granted the right to vote, or enfranchisement, claiming that the fact that women, too, were not allowed to vote was not a justification for such deprivation.

The Fifteenth Amendmnent to the U.S Constitution declares that "the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude." This is specifically what Frederick Douglass was defending in his speech - the other Amendments also protect the right to vote, but based on other premises.

Read the excerpt from "The Most Dangerous Game." The bed was good, and the pajamas of the softest silk, and he was tired in every fiber of his being, but nevertheless Rainsford could not quiet his brain with the opiate of sleep. He lay, eyes wide open. Once he thought he heard stealthy steps in the corridor outside his room. He sought to throw open the door; it would not open. He went to the window and looked out. His room was high up in one of the towers. The lights of the chateau were out now, and it was dark and silent, but there was a fragment of sallow moon, and by its wan light he could see, dimly, the courtyard. There, weaving in and out in the pattern of shadow, were black, noiseless forms; the hounds heard him at the window and looked up, expectantly, with their green eyes. Rainsford went back to the bed and lay down. By many methods he tried to put himself to sleep. He had achieved a doze when, just as morning began to come, he heard, far off in the jungle, the faint report of a pistol.

Ravenous, and now very faint, I devoured a spoonful or two of my portion without thinking of its taste; but the first edge of hunger blunted, I perceived I had got in hand a nauseous mess; burnt porridge is almost as bad as rotten potatoes; famine itself soon sickens over it. The spoons were moved slowly: I saw each girl taste her food and try to swallow it; but in most cases the effort was soon relinquished. Breakfast was over, and none had breakfasted. (Jane Eyre; Chapter 5, pp. 30-31) In the excerpt above, what is the depiction of the food an example of? A. characterization B. a foil C. mood D. a motif

Answer:

d) a motif

Explanation:

A motif is any component, subject, thought or idea that is continually present through the whole writing. Utilizing a motif alludes to the reiteration of a particular topic ruling the scholarly work.

Motifs are truly discernible and assume a noteworthy role in characterizing the idea of the story, the course of occasions and the very texture of the abstract piece.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/02/2020 - 03:27 AM

Read the excerpt from Grendel. Then they would fight. Spears flying, swords whonking, arrows raining from the windows and doors of the meadhall and the edge of the woods. Horses reared and fell over screaming, ravens flew, crazy as bats in a fire, men staggered, gesturing wildly, making speeches, dying or sometimes pretending to be dying, sneaking off. Sometimes the attackers would be driven back, sometimes they’d win and burn the meadhall down, sometimes they’d capture the king of the meadhall and make his people give weapons and gold rings and cows. It was confusing and frightening, not in a way I could untangle. I was safe in my tree, and the men who fought were nothing to me, except of course that they talked in something akin to my language, which meant that we were, incredibly, related. I was sickened, if only at the waste of it: all they killed—cows, horses, men—they left to rot or burn. Which statement best describes Grendel’s perspective? A. He enjoys watching the violent men kill one another. B. He admires the powerful weapons and strong men. C. He wishes to be part of the excitement somehow. D.He feels disgusted by the wasteful nature of war.

Answer:

D. He feels disgusted by the wasteful nature of war.

Explanation:

John Gardner wrote a reworking of the famous epic poem "Beowulf" but from the perspective of the antagonist. He gave the narrative voice to Grendel, the monster that was the enemy in Beowulf.

The excerpt given in the question shows how Grendel really feel about the actions of man and that of war-times in particular. He points that he "was sickened, if only at the waste of it: all they killed—cows, horses, men—they left to rot or burn." While noticing their difference, pointing out that "the men who fought were nothing to (him)", he nevertheless accepts that "they talked in something akin to my language, which meant that we were, incredibly, related". But he was also at the same time disgusted by the wasteful nature of war that men wage against each other.
