Which parts of this excerpt from Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Ann Jacobs express the view that even “kind” slaveholders regarded their slaves as merely property?

I believe the answer is:

After a brief period of suspense, the will of my mistress was read, and we learned that she had bequeathed me to her sister's daughter, a child of five years old.


The words 'bequathed' means the act of passing ownership from one person to another. Even though the mistress is depicted as a kind owner, the fact that she can freely pass the ownership of a human being without her consent shows that the slaves simply seen as an object or property.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/01/2020 - 12:28 PM

Which of these stanzas from "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe represents the speaker's desire to be free from his sorrow and memories of Lenore? 1. Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken, "Doubtless," said I, "what it utters is its only stock and store, Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore— Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore Of 'Never—nevermore.'" . . . 2. Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor. "Wretch," I cried, "thy God hath lent thee—by these angels he hath sent thee Respite—respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore! Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!" Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore." . . . 3. "Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil!—prophet still, if bird or devil! By that Heaven that bends above us—by that God we both adore— Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore." Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

Answer: 2

Explanation: Although the second and third options mention Lenore, only the second option contains the essential words respite, which means rest, relief, and nepenthe, a mythological drug or antidote for sorrowful memories, which the speaker explicitly expects to drink (quaff) to "forget this lost Lenore."

Pronouns in the objective case may function as __________. subjects objects adjectives predicate nominatives

Pronouns in the objective case may function as objects. When it comes to the parts of speech used in the objective case, the only function they can have is that of the object in a sentence. That object can be a direct object, an indirect object, or the object of a preposition. These pronouns thus cannot be subjects, because then they would be in the subjective case. Pronouns cannot be adjectives, and predicate nominatives are only nouns, which pronouns are not.

The story "Two Kinds" had been told through Suyuan's point of view, what type of narration would be appropriate? first-person or third-person limited first-person or third-person omniscient second-person third-person omniscient

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).

Which of the following sentences correctly uses a semicolon? We were going to go to the movies; but Jason forgot his wallet. The curtains were shredded and all over the room; my cat looked very guilty. Do you know why we are here; me neither. Once there was a very hungry troll; but he was very kind as well.

The sentence that correctly uses a semicolon is "The curtains were shredded and all over the room; my cat looked very guilty." Optio B is correct.

The semicolon is a punctuation mark that devides significant sentence elements. A semicolon can be placed between two closely related independent clauses, provided they are not already joined by a coordinating conjunction. Furthermore, semicolons can be employed in place of commas to separate items in a list, particularly when the elements of that list contain commas.

Della wriggled off the table and went for him. "Jim, darling," she cried, "don't look at me that way. I had my hair cut off and sold because I couldn't have lived through Christmas without giving you a present. It'll grow out again—you won't mind, will you? I just had to do it. My hair grows awfully fast. Say ‘Merry Christmas!' Jim, and let's be happy. You don't know what a nice—what a beautiful, nice gift I've got for you." "You've cut off your hair?" asked Jim, laboriously, as if he had not arrived at that patent fact yet even after the hardest mental labor. "Cut it off and sold it," said Della. "Don't you like me just as well, anyhow? I'm me without my hair, ain't I?" Jim looked about the room curiously. "You say your hair is gone?" he said, with an air almost of idiocy. "You needn't look for it," said Della. "It's sold, I tell you—sold and gone, too. It's Christmas Eve, boy. Be good to me, for it went for you. Maybe the hairs of my head were numbered," she went on with sudden serious sweetness, "but nobody could ever count my love for you. Shall I put the chops on, Jim?" Out of his trance Jim seemed quickly to wake. He enfolded his Della. For ten seconds let us regard with discreet scrutiny some inconsequential object in the other direction. Eight dollars a week or a million a year—what is the difference? A mathematician or a wit would give you the wrong answer. The magi brought valuable gifts, but that was not among them. This dark assertion will be illuminated later on. Jim drew a package from his overcoat pocket and threw it upon the table. "Don't make any mistake, Dell," he said, "about me. I don't think there's anything in the way of a haircut or a shave or a shampoo that could make me like my girl any less. But if you'll unwrap that package you may see why you had me going a while at first." White fingers and nimble tore at the string and paper. And then an ecstatic scream of joy; and then, alas! a quick feminine change to hysterical tears and wails, necessitating the immediate employment of all the comforting powers of the lord of the flat. For there lay The Combs—the set of combs, side and back, that Della had worshipped long in a Broadway window. Beautiful combs, pure tortoise shell, with jeweled rims—just the shade to wear in the beautiful vanished hair. They were expensive combs, she knew, and her heart had simply craved and yearned over them without the least hope of possession. And now, they were hers, but the tresses that should have adorned the coveted adornments were gone. But she hugged them to her bosom, and at length she was able to look up with dim eyes and a smile and say: "My hair grows so fast, Jim!" And then Della leaped up like a little singed cat and cried, "Oh, oh!" Jim had not yet seen his beautiful present. She held it out to him eagerly upon her open palm. The dull precious metal seemed to flash with a reflection of her bright and ardent spirit. "Isn't it a dandy, Jim? I hunted all over town to find it. You'll have to look at the time a hundred times a day now. Give me your watch. I want to see how it looks on it." Instead of obeying, Jim tumbled down on the couch and put his hands under the back of his head and smiled. "Dell," said he, "let's put our Christmas presents away and keep 'em a while. They're too nice to use just at present. I sold the watch to get the money to buy your combs. And now suppose you put the chops on." The magi, as you know, were wise men—wonderfully wise men—who brought gifts to the Babe in the manger. They invented the art of giving Christmas presents. Being wise, their gifts were no doubt wise ones, possibly bearing the privilege of exchange in case of duplication. And here I have lamely related to you the uneventful chronicle of two foolish children in a flat who most unwisely sacrificed for each other the greatest treasures of their house. But in a last word to the wise of these days let it be said that of all who give gifts these two were the wisest. Of all who give and receive gifts, such as they are wisest. Everywhere they are wisest. They are the magi. What aspect of the setting is most important to this story? A. the flat B. the hair-shop C. Jim and Della's financial situation D. the city

I think it is b I guess
