I think the correct answer from the choices listed above is the last option. Immunity is the legal protection given to members of congress. They are exempted from arrest while attending a session of the body to which the member belongs, excluding an arrest for treason, breach of the peace, or a felony.

Read this excerpt from “Ain’t I a Woman?” by Sojourner Truth. In which sentences does she make an emotional appeal to the audience by talking about her personal hardships? Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that 'twixt the negroes of the South and the women at the North, all talking about rights, the white men will be in a fix pretty soon. But what's all this here talking about? That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman? Then they talk about this thing in the head; what's this they call it? [member of audience whispers, "intellect"] That's it, honey. What's that got to do with women's rights or negroes' rights? If my cup won't hold but a pint, and yours holds a quart, wouldn't you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full?

IN the 2ND paragraph which mostly contains the personal hardships the speaker has in her life as a Negro woman. Specifically, the sentence's where in she talks about no one helping her into carriages, ploughed and gathered in the farm, eat and work as much as a man, and being sold off to slavery best describe the emotional it shows that she wanted to convey

QUESTION POSTED AT 23/09/2019 - 04:24 AM

Topic: Whether a dog or cat will be a better pet Paragraph topic 1: Friendliness Dogs are warm and friendly. Cats are standoffish and independent. Cats don’t make as much noise as barking dogs. Paragraph topic 2: Protection Most cats are not known to protect homes from intruders, and rarely will a “beware of cat” sign be displayed on a fence. Dogs are protective and bark to warn intruders to stay away. Paragraph topic 3: Care Cats are self-sufficient; they can take care of themselves as long as food is left out for them. Dogs need a lot of attention and care. They have to be let out or walked regularly, and they have to be watched—especially when they are puppies—so they don’t chew furniture.

Which sentence best restates Sanger Rainsford's attitude about animals at the beginning of "The Most Dangerous Game"? Animals are people, too. Animals are a lower life form and have no understanding. Animals should be protected and not hunted. Animals understand one thing -- the fear of pain and the fear of death.

Animals are a lower life form and have no understanding.

This question refers to the conversation Rainsford and Whitney have at the beginning of the story while they are standing on the deck of the boat. Whitney brings up the idea that hunting is great for the hunter but not the animal. Rainsford contradicts him and says, "Who cares how a jaguar feels?" When Whitney responds that a jaguar probably cares how he feels. Rainsford dismisses the idea by saying, "They've no understanding." It is Whitney who says that animals "understand one thing - the fear of pain and the fear of death." Rainsford does not care about the feelings of the animals that he hunts.

This idea sets up Rainsford's attitude towards the animals that he hunts. This of course is interesting since later in the story Rainsford becomes the animal that is hunted.

Which sentence is the best example of an objective summary? A) its is important for citizens to understand how the constitution protects individual rights B) the constitution lists the basic functions of the three branches of government C) the constitution is not lengthy and every citizen ought to read it. D) the most important concept of the constitution is the separation of powers

The sentence that is the best example of an objective summary is option B.

The constitution lists the basic functions of the three branches of government.

It is the correct answer because it is just providing a brief information without adding a personal opinion.

Objective  is defined as the “not influenced by personal  feelings or interpretation.” A summary consists on a short  statement that provides the main points or ideas pertaining to something. So an objective summary is a short  statement or paragraph that tells what something  is about but does not include irrelevant details or  your opinions.

Do NOT copy my answer or your grade will result in a 0%!

My answer to this question is:

Option B uses similes to compare the police to gardeners. Example: "As a gardener protects a new plant from a strong storm, the motorcycle police protectively surrounded the line of school buses from the angry bystanders." The whole sentence is a perfect example, the author of the sentence said that the police are protecting the school buses from the angry bystanders, like how gardeners protect their crops from storms.

Review the fact Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl is a diary Which best explains how this fact can increase your comprehension of the text? A) It helps to show that Anne was impulsive, because she could not prevent others from publishing her diary B) It helps to understand Anne's death was tragic, because she could not prevent others from publishing her diary C) It helps to show that Anne is not as cruel as she seems; she just never expected anyone else to read her thoughts D) It helps to show that Anne was immature, because fully mature adults do not keep diaries.

The correct answer is C.

Some people have classified Anne Frank as "cruel" for the things she wrote about her family and the people living with her during her hiding in War World II.

However, Anne was merely writing down her thoughts and feelings. She did not intend for anyone to read her diary. For her, writing in her diary was a way of venting without creating conflict with her house mates.

QUESTION POSTED AT 22/09/2019 - 09:00 PM

Adapted from The Expansion of the United States from A Short History of the World by H.G. Wells The region of the world that displayed the most immediate and striking results from the new inventions in transport was North America. Politically, the United States embodied, and its constitution crystallized, the liberal ideas of the mid-eighteenth century. It dispensed with state-church or crown, it would have no titles, it protected property jealously as a method of freedom, and it gave nearly every adult male citizen a vote. Its method of voting was crude, and therefore its political life soon fell, but that did not prevent the newly emancipated population from developing an energy, enterprise, and public spirit far beyond that of any other contemporary population. Then came that acceleration of locomotion. It is a curious thing that America, which owes most to this acceleration in locomotion, has felt it least. The United States has taken the railway, the river steamboat, the telegraph, and so forth as though they were a natural part of their growth. They were not. These things happened to come along just in time to save American unity. The United States of today was made first by the river steamboat, and then by the railway. Without these things, the present United States would have been altogether impossible. The westward flow of population would have been far more sluggish. It might never have crossed the great central plains. The first state established beyond the river was the steamboat state of Missouri in 1821. But the rest of the distance to the Pacific was done in a few decades. If we had the resources then, it would be interesting to show a map of North America year by year from 1600 onward, with little dots to represent hundreds of people, each dot a hundred, and stars to represent cities of a hundred thousand people. For two hundred years, the reader would see the little dots creeping slowly along the coastal districts and navigable waters, spreading still more gradually into Indiana, Kentucky, and so forth. Then somewhere about 1810 would come a change. Things would get more lively along the river courses. The dots would be multiplying and spreading. That would be the steamboat. Then from about 1850 onward would come the black lines of the railways, and after that the little black dots would not simply creep but run. Then suddenly here and then there would appear the first stars to indicate the first great cities of a hundred thousand people. First one or two and then a multitude of cities—each like a knot in the growing net of the railways. The growth of the United States is a process that has no precedent in the world's history; it is a new kind of occurrence. Such a community could not have come into existence before, and if it had, without railways it would certainly have dropped to pieces long before now. Without railways or telegraph, it would be far easier to administer California from Pekin than from Washington. But this great population of the United States of America has not only grown outrageously; it has kept uniform. Nay, it has become more uniform. The man of San Francisco is more like the man of New York today than the man of Virginia was like the man of New England a century ago. The United States is being woven by railway, by telegraph, more and more into one vast unity, speaking, thinking, and acting harmoniously with itself. Soon aviation will be helping in the work. 2. Directions: Select ALL the correct answers.Which two statements summarize main ideas of the text? Historically, innovations in travel led to westward expansion in the United States. In the early years of the United States, most male citizens had the freedom to vote. Old maps of the United States show very little migration beyond the East Coast. Transportation and communication have served to unify United States citizens. The United States now includes many cities that have a population over 100,000.

The first one and the fourth one seem as good summaries
