Your answer would be (A)
because universal theme is an idea that applies to anyone regardless of cultural differences, or geographic location. Universal themes are ways to connect ideas across all disciplines. It is a central idea about the human condition. It is a generalization about life or human nature; they deal with basic human concerns.

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 passage from "Lather and Nothing Else." And so, which will it be? Murderer or hero? My fate hangs on the edge of this razor blade. I can turn my wrist slightly, put a bit more pressure on the blade, let it sink in. The skin will yield like silk, like rubber, like the strop. There is nothing more tender than a man’s skin, and the blood is always there, ready to burst forth. A razor like this cannot fail. It is the best one I have. How does the figurative language in the underlined sentence build a tense mood? A)It shows how strong the captain is and how fearful the barber must be. B) It persuades readers to see the captain’s political point of view. C)It creates a visual image and shows how easily the barber could hurt the captain. D)It describes details of an old-fashioned barbershop and creates sympathy for the barber.

Answer:

C)It creates a visual image and shows how easily the barber could hurt the captain.  

Explanation:

"Lather and Nothing Else" is a short story about a man who participates in a political party that will shave in a barber shop where the barber disagrees deeply with the ideas of the man's polite party. During the story the man begins to speak as he and his party companions treat the revolutionaries in a violent way, but the barber is one of these revolutionaries and when he hears the speech of the man, he enters into a moral dilemma where he thinks about whether to kill the man or not.

In the excerpt above, the phrase "My destiny is on the edge of this razor blade" creates a figure of speech that leads the reader to see how easy it would be for the barber to kill the man in front of him.

I would say that the theme revealed by this conflict in the excerpt is grief / sorrow.

I NEED AN ANSWER ASAPI Have A Dream Martin Luther King, Jr. 1 I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. 2 Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. 3 But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition. 4 In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 5It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.Which MOST ACCURATELY reflects a traditional or contemporary theme of this speech? A) environmental stewardship in the 1960s B) the new energy and urgency of the 1960s C) greed and its negative impact on the 1960s D) the old corruption and new tolerance of the 1960s

Answer:

B)  the new political energy related to race relations in the 1960s  

Explanation:

       

These are also some different options to the same question

A)  environmental stewardship in the 1960s

B)  the new political energy related to race relations in the 1960s  

C)  greed and its negative impact on the 1960s  

D)  the scientific advances creating changes in the 1960s

And its B cuz=

What MOST ACCURATELY reflects a traditional or contemporary theme of this speech is the new political energy related to race relations in the 1960's. In the opening lines of this section, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. refers to the large crowd as the 'greatest demonstration of freedom in the history of our nation.' He uses the phrase 'the fierce urgency of now, ' and then the word 'now' four more times in the last section. These combine to send the message (theme) that there is a new energy and urgency of the 1960's. The urgency revolves around equality and racial justice.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/02/2020 - 05:27 AM

In the 1800s, the United States was still a very young nation, trying to solidify its identity. The Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain, a fast development of society following the introduction of machines. The United States was slower than Great Britain to fully embrace the changes. Yet key technological developments caused a rapid growth in American urban areas.Better farming methods and tools in the 1800s increased food production. Americans were able to grow enough food for their families as well as to sell. The abundance caused food prices to fall.The expansion of cotton and the growth of textile factories in northern states helped produce the first wave of American industry. More people turned to work in northern factories as a way to support their families. Thousands of immigrants to the United States also settled in or near port cities, looking for work. Even today, the need for work is a common reason people move to urban areas.As a result, cities grew in numbers of people and physical space. As more people and businesses moved in, they needed buildings for living and working. They needed ways to move around the city. We call this process urbanization.In 1820, the United States had only a few cities of 10,000 residents or more. About seven percent of U.S. residents lived in urban areas. The number of cities with more than 10,000 people grew quickly over the next 40 years, especially in the Northeast and Midwest. By 1860, about 20 percent lived in cities. Philadelphia and New York City were the most populated cities in 1860 and would soon reach one million residents.The urbanization of the United States quickened due to technology improvements. Without innovations in food production, the factories could not have grown so quickly. The trend quickened after 1860 and continued throughout the 21st century as well. By 2007, more Americans lived in or near cities than they did in rural areas.Which sentence from the conclusion paragraph best rephrases the author's thesisA) The urbanization of the United States quickened due to technology improvements B) Without innovations in food productions, the factories could not have grown so quicklyC) The trend quickened after 1860 and continued through the 21st century as wellD) By 2007, more Americans lived in or near cities than they did in rural areas

Read the claim. A student tutoring program should be established so that peers can help one another. Which statement best uses pathos to support this claim? A. Honor Roll students could offer homework help to students with specific academic needs. B. With careful student pairings, academics would improve and new friendships would form. C. Last spring, nearly twenty percent of all geometry students visited the guidance center to find a tutor. D. Families often complain about the cost of tutors, but a student-run program would be free.

The statement which best uses pathos to support the claim is with careful student pairings, academics would improve and new friendships would form.

Pathos is a Greek word referring to experiences and sufferings. The words empathy and sympathy are derived from the word pathos. Therefore, it is used by authors to make the audience feel what they want them to feel, which would evoke the anger in the audience or would draw pity or sympathy from the audience to prompt action.


In the above statement, it supports the claim because it claims regarding the advantage of student pairing and the help that students can provide to each other which will eventually lead to improved academic response and new friendships among peers.

Whereas other statements do not support the claim as the claim doesn't suggest the specific peer group,  it doesn't state regarding the finding of the tutor and about the problems that families are facing.
