Which of the following best summarizes the passage above? Troops led hundreds of prisoners to safety while suffering only light casualties. They rescued these prisoners from a jungle outpost called Cabanatuan. Many prisoners suffered from malaria. "Ghost soldiers" died of malaria and dysentery. The conditions they lived in were horrible. The American troops were considered less honorable than others because they had surrendered. American soldiers captured by the Japanese army suffered greatly. The beginning of the suffering was the Bataan Death March in the Philippines. Those who survived the march had to face their captors' brutality on a regular basis. The Japanese army considered the soldiers less honorable foes because they had surrendered. The soldiers also suffered illnesses like dysentery and malaria. For three years, these "ghost soldiers" lived in misery and suffered terrible losses. Army Rangers who were among Douglas MacArthur's forces went to the Philippines. They hatched a daring plan to help their captured friends. They knew that a successful mission would boost morale on the front and at home. A young officer named Henry Mucci led these men. Mucci was known as "Little MacArthur" because, like MacArthur, he constantly smoked a pipe and was a brilliant strategist. A group made up of Rangers and Filipino soldiers went far behind enemy lines. It attacked the Japanese forces guarding Allied prisoners at a jungle outpost called Cabanatuan. Finally, the group led hundreds of prisoners to safety while the Japanese army pursued them. Amazingly, there were very few casualties. Which of the following best summarizes the passage above? A. Troops led hundreds of prisoners to safety while suffering only light casualties. They rescued these prisoners from a jungle outpost called Cabanatuan. Many prisoners suffered from malaria. B."Ghost soldiers" died of malaria and dysentery. The conditions they lived in were horrible. The American troops were considered less honorable than others because they had surrendered. C. American prisoners of war were able to escape with very few casualties. The "ghost soldiers" had dealt with diseases and their captors' brutality for three years. "Little MacArthur" freed them. D. American prisoners of war were brutalized by their Japanese captors. Army Rangers, led by Henry Mucci, daringly fought Japanese forces and rescued these prisoners in the Philippines.

Uh all of them are pretty much right. I would say C that one seems to have an all around summary

The word group that shows parallelism is A. coffee mugs, soup bowls, salad plates. Parallelism refers to the fact that each word in the group has the same form - if the words are nouns, all of them have to be either singular or plural. If those are verbs, they all have to be either infinitives or something else, but they have to be the same. As you can see, only the words in A are completely the same (all plural) so A is the correct answer.

QUESTION POSTED AT 05/12/2019 - 07:51 PM

Which sentences in this excerpt from Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Contest" suggest that the author’s tone is mocking? The blue-clad player struck several chords upon his lyre, and then burst suddenly out into the “Ode of Niobe.” Policles sat straight up on his bench and gazed at the stage in amazement. The tune demanded a rapid transition from a low note to a high, and had been purposely chosen for this reason. The low note was a grunting, a rumble, the deep discordant growling of an ill-conditioned dog. Then suddenly the singer threw up his face, straightened his tubby figure, rose upon his tiptoes, and with wagging head and scarlet cheeks emitted such a howl as the same dog might have given had his growl been checked by a kick from his master. All the while the lyre twanged and thrummed, sometimes in front of and sometimes behind the voice of the singer. But what amazed Policles most of all was the effect of this performance upon the audience. Every Greek was a trained critic, and as unsparing in his hisses as he was lavish in his applause. Many a singer far better than this absurd fop had been driven amid execration and abuse from the platform.

"Many a singer far better than this absurd fop had been driven amid execration and abuse from the platform." Is the sentence that really shows mockery the best. While the author was praising him for what he was doing in the beginning it ends with such a mocking tone it changes the way you look at the rest of the reading.
