1) Which sentence includes the best domain specific words for an informative/explanatory article on how space exploration led to the development of new products for people?

a) Many products we use every day come from technology developed during the moon landing projects.
Comment: this is  a good option, but there aren't many specific words

b) Scientists used MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, to select a suitable landing site on the lunar surface.
THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER - it uses specific terms (MRI) and mentions how it was developed for space exploration. MRI is used in heath exploration today. 


c) Athletic shoes now use the same materials as moon boots.
= no use of very specific language
d) Cordless tools were developed for astronauts to use during space walks.
= there is no talk about the use of the innovation outside of the space exploration context


2) In an informative/explanatory article about vacation planning, which of these concepts would be used to explain something to the reader?

a) Famous beaches - this is not a bad, idea, but it lacks the part of "explaining" - it's rather "describing"

b) Booking a hotel room - this is the best option - a description how to do it would be a good explanation and it's related to vacation planning. 

c) Effective natural sunscreens - again, this is something to mention, but perhaps not to explain, also it's not specific to holidays, as you also need sun protection outside of holidays

d) Travel agent recommendations - this is again not a bad option, but it lacks the "explanation" aspect

Read Article IX of the United States Bill of Rights: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. What is the main effect of setting the phrase of certain rights off with commas following the introductory phrase the enumeration of the Constitution? It emphasizes the rights are what should not be misconstrued. It emphasizes the rights belong to the people not the Constitution. It makes the rights more important than the Constitution. It suggests that some rights are more important than others.

The correct answer is the first one. Setting the phrase "of certain rights" off with commas following the introductory phrase emphasizes the rights are what should not be misconstrued.

That is to say, it must be taken into account that although only some rights have been enumerated in the Constitution, the other rights not written are also contemplated by it.

Therefore, written rights do not represent a limit to unwritten rights retained by the people.

Which of the following was not an important aspect of American Romanticism? reason imagination intuition nature Emerson and Thoreau both believe that society __________. provides people with important opportunities prevents people from being free encourages people to be unique is the best place to gain an education Why does the speaker appeal to time and nature in "Concord Hymn"? to question their presence in the world to urge them to wash away anything man-made to ask them to preserve the memorial to encourage readers to be buried nearby

1. Reason.

The Romantic movement is generally seen as a reaction against the emphasis on reason that was characteristic of the Enlightenment. Therefore, this was not a significant element of American Romanticism.

2. Prevents people from being free.

Both authors believe that society can often limit people's freedom by not allowing them to become themselves. Therefore, they both encourage self-reliance and independence.

3. To ask them to preserve the memorial.

The author is asking Time and Nature to spare the memorial, and not damage it, so that future generations will remember what happened during the Battle of Concord. This is obvious in the last stanza:

Spirit, that made those heroes dare,

To die, and leave their children free,

Bid Time and Nature gently spare

The shaft we raise to them and thee.

Read the following paragraph and answer the question that follows. As soon as she got her console out of the package, she pressed the power switch. Within seconds, the green light appeared, and a smile crept across Jessica's face. This was the day she had been waiting for. Barely stifling laughter of excitement, she grabbed her controller and pressed the Home button. Instantly a blue screen welcomed her to her new system and asked whether she was interested in Movies, Games, Internet, or Chat. Jessica was so thrilled she didn't know which one to pick first! Which point of view does this author use? A) Objective B) Limited Omniscient C) Omniscient D) First person

Answer: The right answer is the B) Limited Omniscient.

Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that the narrator, who is not one of the characters in the story (so option D should be unhesitatingly discarded), is telling the story from the viewpoint of Jessica, who is one of the characters — note that he or she uses third-person pronouns such as "she" and "her." Thanks to the narrator, we know what she is doing, thinking, seeing, and feeling. That is why we say that the point of view is omniscent (from the Latin omnis, "everything" and sciens, -entis, "who knows"). However, the narrator is only seeing into Jessica's mind, not into the minds of all the characters, and, for that reason, his or her point of view is limited. Since the narrator can see into Jessica's mind, and not only describe what she does, his or her point of view is not objective, so option A should also be discarded.

Imagine you are writing an argument to convince others that people should become vegetarians. You want people to stop eating meat and start eating nuts and beans for protein. Which group of people can you expect to support you without even reading your argument? A. Cattle ranch owners B. Fast food executives C. State level lawmakers D. Animal rights supporters

You'd select the Animal rights supporters because meat is made from animals. And the Animals rights supporters sound like they support the rights of animals. A cattle ranch owner wouldn't help you because they are a steakhouse, in which sells cooked animals. Fast food executives sell animal meats as well so they wouldn't be reliable. And State level lawmakers wouldn't help because it mainly focuses on important political decisions. And so the only reliable source left is D, the Animal rights supporters.

Read this paragraph. Biology 101 with Professor Ramirez is the most challenging course I have ever taken. Though every inspiring class session includes exhaustive note taking and time-consuming lab work, I enjoy the material. The entertaining lectures are instructive, and all the students remain engaged throughout the hour. Which words from the paragraph support the conclusion that Professor Ramirez is a demanding teacher? Check all that apply. challenging inspiring class session exhaustive note taking time-consuming lab work entertaining lectures engaged

The correct answers are A. Challenging; C. Exhaustive note taking and D. Time-consuming lab work

The word "demand" refers to something or someone that is challenging or requires an intensive effort that is not normally required in a similar situation. This means if a teacher is classified as demanding is generally because this teacher asks students for more than other teachers do. In the excerpt presented, in which the Biology teacher called Professor Ramirez is described, the narrator emphasizes this teacher is "the most challenging course" which means this course and requires require more than the narrator expects. Also, the narrator describes the class sessions require "exhaustive not taking and time-consuming lab work" that also explain the way teacher Ramirez is demanding. Additionally, the narrator describes other positive features of the teacher such as "inspiring" or "students remain engaged" that do not relate to the demanding aspect. Thus, the words that support the idea that Professor Ramirez is a demanding teacher are "challenging" which is a synonym for demanding; "exhaustive note-taking" and "time-consuming lab word" which explain the ways in which this teacher demands more from students than others which refers to the concept of demanding.

Close reading means reading and analyzing a small piece of text closely. Close reading is the best way to at least partially master a text before you begin to think more largely about it. The notion of a text gives a vital sense of life to the object of inquiry, a life that can stand apart from its author. Sometimes writer use not litaral language, he uses words or expressions that are different from the literal interpretation and to understand them we have to analyze the figurative language in a text (examine text for images and imagery, look for similes,metaphors, symbols etc).
