The correct answer is B.
In the story, the white woman is awfully excited to meet Walter Williams, a colored singer whom she likes. However, while talking to her host, she constantly remarks that she does not have feelings for him, being that he is a black man.
Still, when she finally meet him, she gets very nervous, cuts herself while talking and interrups him when he tries to answer any of her questions.
After their conversation ends, he tells her host that she though he was a nice man, and that she liked him. But, again, she strongly remarks that she has no feelings for him.

Henry David Thoreau was an American essayist, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, and historian, two of his greatest works are: "Resistance to Civil Government" (also known as "Civil Disobedience") and "The Mask of Anarchy". His ideals can be summarized by this statement: “the Government should not have more power than the bestowed by its citizens”.
Henry David Thoreau was even imprisoned for refusing to pay taxes in protest for the Mexican-American War and the slavery.
Thoreau was an idealist; he opposed the oppression and tyranny from the government and I think that more people like him should exist for we need more free thinkers to defend the common citizen from the oppressive government we sometimes have.
But for now let us focus on his naturalist points of view, he loved nature and all contact with it, he spent a very long time in isolation in a cottage in the woods to get in contact with nature in a deeper sense.
I think walking is an excellent exercise, but we need to be specific about the kind of walking we can get. There is walking inside of the house in a walking machine of any kind, there is walking on the streets, there is walking on the park, on the beach. I think the best place to walk is a good, away from the city forest, where you can hear yourself breathing, where you can concentrate on nothing more than the nature surrounding you, or as Thoreau would say: "I wish to speak a word (with) Nature, for absolute freedom and wildness". Walking as a means of exercise is good but walking to become, for a couple of hours at least, a part of nature, is the real thing. As Thoreau would put it : I want to become "a part and parcel of Nature, rather than a member of society. "

Answer: C) Swift uses a false premise to create humor.
Explanation: In the given excerpt from "Gulliver's Travels" by Jonathan Swift, we can see a story about a blind man who worked (along other blind men) mixing colors for painters, they were able to do that by distinguishing each painting by its feel and smell. This passage is a clear example of the use of a false premise, or also an irony, to create humor (because the last job one can expect a blind man to have, is mixing colors) so the correct answer is option C.

QUESTION POSTED AT 26/03/2020 - 11:31 AM
In the 18th century, Carl Linneaus systematized the use of Latin and Greek names for fauna and flora. The names usually indicate what animal species the animal belongs to as well as a characteristic it possesses. For instance, the Asian tiger mosquito is called Aedes albopictus - aedes means mosquito, albopictus means painted white. As we can see, the word albopictus is an agglutination of two words (albo for white, pictus for painting).
Let's use the same structure for our animal: a little animal that sings like a bird. First, we need to talk about what our animal is. That is unclear in the description, but we know it is small. So we can use "brevis" - small - as our first word. The other thing we know is that our animal is not a bird, but sings like one. Therefore, our next two words are "avis" - bird - and "canto" - to sing. Let's agglutinate them just like what was done to "albopictus", and we have:
