Answer:

present participle

Explanation:

Inflection refers to the process by which the same word can appear in different forms, for example, singular / plural, in the case of names and adjectives, and in different modes, times and persons, in the case of verbs. On the other hand, the present participle is a derivation of the present tense form found in some languages.

Read the excerpt from “A Pair of Silk Stockings” by Kate Chopin and answer the question that follows. Little Mrs. Sommers one day found herself the unexpected possessor of fifteen dollars. It seemed to her a very large amount of money, and the way in which it stuffed and bulged her worn old [pocketbook] gave her a feeling of importance such as she had not enjoyed for years. . . . A man with keen eyes, who sat opposite to her, seemed to like the study of her small, pale face. It puzzled him to decipher what he saw there. In truth, he saw nothing—unless he were wizard enough to detect a poignant wish, a powerful longing that the cable car would never stop anywhere, but go on and on with her forever. Source: Chopin, Kate. “A Pair of Silk Stockings.” The Awakening and Selected Short Stories. Project Gutenberg, 11 Mar. 2006. Web. 12 May 2011. Which point of view does this excerpt illustrate? third-person limited second-person third-person omniscient first-person

The correct answer is C. Third-person omniscient

Explanation:

In literature, the point of view refers to the angle from which the events in a story are told. Most common points of view, which are also classified as types of narrators include first-person in which the events are told using pronouns such as "I" or "We", second-person in which the narrator involves the reader in the story by using "you"; third person point of view in which the narrator describes the events from an external point of view and uses "he" and "she" to refer to the actions of characters and third person omniscient called god-like narrator in which the narrator also tells the events from an external point of view but knows the feelings, thoughts, and emotions of all the characters and is able to provide details other narrators cannot.

In the case of the excerpt presented from "A Pair of Silk Stockings" by Kate Chopin the narrator describes the events from an external perspective as in the case of "Little Mrs. Sommers one day found herself the unexpected possessor of fifteen dollars" or the use of the pronoun "he" to describe the man at the end of the excerpt. Additionally, the narrator also knows the feelings and thoughts of the characters as in "It seemed to her a very large amount of money" or " It puzzled him to decipher what he saw there", which implies the type of narrator, in this case, is third-person omniscient as the  point of view is external but the narrator knows the thoughts and feelings of the characters, which are the main features of this type of narrator.

Some of the most common helping verbs are "be" and "have", which are used to form the progressive tenses and the perfect tenses. In that way, in the sentence "John is singing", "is" is the helping verb, while "singing" is the main verb.

Identify the italicized part of the sentence. The subjects listed here are the elective "courses" for secondary schools. subject predicate direct object indirect object predicate noun predicate adjective

Answer: E) Predicate noun.

Explanation: A predicate noun is a single noun or a noun phrase that renames the subject of a sentence and follows a form of the verb "to be" or another linking verb. In the given sentence the linking verb is "to be" in the plural form of the present tense (are), and the noun that follows the verb is "courses" (because "elective" is an adjective), and it renames the subject "subjects" so the bolded word "courses" represents the predicate noun of the sentence.

1. In Around the World in Eighty Days, Phileas Fogg makes an impulsive wager that he can travel around the world in eighty days or less. This excerpt from the story is told from the third-person point of view, focusing on the perspective of Passepartout, Fogg’s loyal servant. How does focusing on Passepartout’s point of view affect the story? Use evidence from the text to support your response. Your response should be one or two complete paragraphs.

Focusing on Passepartout’s perspective makes the story objective. Passepartout doesn’t have a personal bias or have anything to prove so he doesn't react impulsively or affectionately. (Greenleafable, Brainly)“Being much less cool-headed than Mr. Fogg, he was much more restless, counting and recounting the days passed over, uttering maledictions when the train stopped, and accusing it of sluggishness, and mentally blaming Mr. Fogg for not having bribed the engineer. The worthy fellow was ignorant that, while it was possible by such means to hasten the rate of a steamer, it could not be done on the railway.” This is a quote showing that the narrator is telling the story from third person, not Passepartou from first, thus giving the story a more real and relatable aspect to it.
