Buttons and lights blinked on and off and the beeping sounds filled the ships. The best feature of the ship was the monitor that measured the relative closeness of things within the solar system from the ship. With the rotation of the ship the monitor would move as well. With these things, the astronauts were ready for their long voyage into deep space.

According to Swift, what was the purpose of publishing Gulliver's Travels? A. He wanted to make fun of the upper class of England and their practices. B. He wanted to insult political officials so English society would call for their executions. C. He wanted to entertain readers with a funny and heartwarming story highlighting English characters. D. He wanted to correct human failings and remind people of basic human kindnesses

Jonathan Swift wittily wrote "Travels to Several Nations of the World" as a satire to depict the way kings governed and how society was constructed. By describing the advances in the nations that Gulliver visits and the great manners that smart horses can demonstrate, it is possible to say that he wanted to correct human failings and remind people of basic human kindness.

Figurative language and colloquial language are not appropriate for academic writing

First of this isn't a question, but here we go! Figurative is GREAT for academic writing. It can convey points and make things easier to understand. It also makes the passage more lively, and less boring (No one likes a boring paper).
Though colloquial isn't good for essays, if it is in dialogue it is okay. For instance, it shows the culture of the person, and makes for some interesting reading! "If dats aright' fer ye!"

What style was "The Nun's Priest Tale" written in?




The options of this question are:

  • mock-heroic
  • epic
  • elegiac
  • heroic

This tale is written as a mock-heroic. This is because the tale adopts the stylistic conventions of grand epics, but makes fun of them. The author uses words and a style that usually belongs to great, fantastic stories, but in fact tells a very simple story in a modest setting. The speaker describes a rooster named Chanticleer as an animal with qualities that normally belong to noble knights. Moreover, the hen Lady Pertelote is described in the way a pure and gracious maiden would normally have been described in a Medieval romance.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/03/2020 - 10:44 AM

A Three-Point Turn Chapter 1 "You know, hardly anyone ever needs to do a three-point turn anymore," said Justin, trying to help Becky calm down. "Oh, so it's not a useful skill AND I am probably going to fail the driving test because I can't do it anyway," Becky said, raising her voice for emphasis. "That should make me feel like a million bucks when I flunk." Justin was riding with Becky so she could take her driving test. He had volunteered for the job because he thought she would be less nervous with him than with their mom, but so far, he wasn't sure he was making any difference. "Slow down, your turn is coming up here," he said, looking ahead. "I know, I know," she replied, "I've been here before remember—the last time I flunked." Justin was pretty sure if he had let her miss the turn, things would only have deteriorated further, but he wasn't sure he was fond of being the scapegoat for Becky's anxiety. "Listen, you need to take a few deep breaths," he said, hoping he could help her at least relax a bit. "Being nervous won't help you with the three-point turn or anything else you have to do. Hey, did you just take that turn without your turn signal on?" This was going to be harder than he thought. "Stop yelling at me," Becky replied, clearly frustrated, "I can't concentrate." "Look, you need to stop and get yourself together here," Justin started. "It is not just about passing the driving test. I don't want to get in an accident, so pull into that parking lot." Becky drove into the office building's parking lot where Justin was pointing. Justin knew they were less than a mile from the licensing office, and if she continued in this condition, he'd be having this same discussion three months from now when she tried the test again for the third time. "You need to get a grip," he started after she put the car in park, "because you have studied and practiced driving all year. You know this stuff inside and out, backwards and forwards. What are you so nervous about?" "I don't know, I don't know," Becky wailed, resting her head on the steering wheel. "I just get so tired of failing." Listening quietly as Becky sobbed, Justin realized this was about much more than a driving test. He also knew if he didn't find a way to help Becky things would just get worse. Chapter 2 Justin took a deep breath and collected his thoughts. Becky was an unbelievably consistent straight-A student. It was Justin who got the bad grades in school, and Justin who had to repeat every math class he'd ever taken. It was Justin who wished he could get the grades Becky got. Some things came easier for Justin: He was athletic, handy with tools, and good at making the best of whatever life threw at him. Mom called him her "lemons into lemonade" kid. But for the most part, Becky succeeded easily, whereas Justin had to work and work to just get a passing grade. Rather than having Becky catalogue all the things she supposedly "failed" at, Justin decided to try an alternative approach, one that wouldn't remind him of all the ways he had failed. "Okay, Becky, let's assume for a moment you fail this test again. What is the worst thing that could happen?" he asked. "I would be the oldest kid at school without a license and be humiliated," she replied. Justin thought he heard a bit of panic in her voice but continued with his plan. "Yes, but won't we still have to drive to school together for at least one more year anyway?" he asked. "Yes, but..." she started. "And who will know, if you don't tell anyone except your friends, that you don't have your license? You know Mom can't afford another car just for you, right?" "Yes," she said quietly. "So what difference does it make, really," he said. "Another three months to wait in the grand scheme of your life doesn't seem like all that long, right?" "I suppose not," she said. Justin could tell she was breathing more slowly now. "Besides," he said, "I would miss all the practice driving with you," and for good measure he reached over and pinched her arm. "Ow," she said, hitting back at him, "that hurt." "So let's go do this, okay? "Okay," she said. Becky cranked up the car, backed slowly out of the parking spot and drove up to the parking lot's exit. Justin noticed, as they waited for the traffic to clear, that she had remembered the turn signal. Use Chapters 1 and 2 to answer the following question: Which of the following best summarizes the main conflict of the story? A. Becky comes to terms with her obsession with perfection. B. Becky fails to use turn signals and sets off a pent-up argument with her brother. C. Becky gets upset on her way to a driving test while Justin tries to calm her down. D. Becky has a conversation with her brother about driving recklessly.

The correct answer is C. Becky gets upset on her way to a driving test while Justin tries to calm her down


In literature, the conflict is the struggle or opposing force the main character faces during the story and that stops the character from achieving some goal. Also, the conflict is considered as one of the main points in literary works as the story focuses on solving the conflict the character faces.

In the case of the text presented during the first chapter, the character Justin and Becky discuss as she feels she is going to fail again and she is worried about it as they both are in the way to the driving test. On the other hand, Justin is trying to help her be calmer but this seems not to work as Becky misses a turn signal and Justin asks her to stop driving which leads to a discussion in which Becky ends crying. During the second chapter, Justin decides to stop discussing and help her by showing her failing the test is not as terrible as Becky thinks and does not really change Becky's life as she can take the test again and wait for some months, which finally makes Becky feel better about the situation and continue driving. This means the opposing force or struggles Becky's faces are the feelings of frustration and anger for taking the test again while Justin struggles to make her feel better and calm.

Which part of this excerpt from John Keats' poem "Endymion" contains a simile/ A.Therefore, 'tis with full happiness that I Will trace the story of Endymion. B. Into my being, and each pleasant scene Is growing fresh before me as the green Of our own vallies: so I will begin C. Now while the early budders are just new, And run in mazes of the youngest hue About old forests; while the willow trails D. And, as the year Grows lush in juicy stalks, I'll smoothly steer My little boat, for many quiet hours,

B. Into my being, and each pleasant scene

Is growing fresh before me as the green

Of our own vallies: so I will begin

A simile is a figurative language or a metaphor used to describe events, places, people, animals, ideas, etc. by making comparisons. We can easily identify it in texts or speeches that uses the words "like", "as", or "as in", to show similarity, and make the work more colorful, interesting and appealing.

In the excerpt, the narrator describes what is growing inside of them, which is fresh, by comparing it to the green of their valleys. Perhaps, the "green of our vallies" reminds the narrator of freshness, life, and growth.
