It was a military-looking Jeep, like an armored Hummer, only it didn't have any military insignia on it. The car skidded to a stop just in front of me, and I jumped back and lost my balance and ended up on the road. I felt the doors open near me, and then saw a confusion of booted feet moving close by. I looked up and saw a bunch of military-looking guys in coveralls, holding big, bulky rifles and wearing hooded gas masks with tinted face-plates. I barely had time to register them before those rifles were pointed at me. I'd never looked down the barrel of a gun before, but everything you've heard about the experience is true. You freeze where you are, time stops, and your heart thunders in your ears. I opened my mouth, then shut it, then, very slowly, I held my hands up in front of me. The faceless, eyeless armed man above me kept his gun very level. I didn't even breathe. Van was screaming something and Jolu was shouting and I looked at them for a second and that was when someone put a coarse sack over my head and cinched it tight around my windpipe, so quick and so fiercely I barely had time to gasp before it was locked on me. I was pushed roughly but dispassionately onto my stomach and something went twice around my wrists and then tightened up as well, feeling like baling wire and biting cruelly. I cried out and my own voice was muffled by the hood. I was in total darkness now and I strained my ears to hear what was going on with my friends. I heard them shouting through the muffling canvas of the bag, and then I was being impersonally hauled to my feet by my wrists, my arms wrenched up behind my back, my shoulders screaming. I stumbled some, then a hand pushed my head down and I was inside the Hummer. More bodies were roughly shoved in beside me. "Guys?" I shouted, and earned a hard thump on my head for my trouble. I heard Jolu respond, then felt the thump he was dealt, too. My head rang like a gong. "Hey," I said to the soldiers. "Hey, listen! We're just high school students. I wanted to flag you down because my friend was bleeding. Someone stabbed him." I had no idea how much of this was making it through the muffling bag. I kept talking. "Listen—this is some kind of misunderstanding. We've got to get my friend to a hospital—" Someone went upside my head again. It felt like they used a baton or something—it was harder than anyone had ever hit me in the head before. My eyes swam and watered and I literally couldn't breathe through the pain. A moment later, I caught my breath, but I didn't say anything. I'd learned my lesson. In three to five sentences, explain Marcus’ current stage of identity development. Use examples from the text. As a reminder, the different stages of identity development are: (20 points)

1- Marcus' conflict is related to his friends; he wants to help them but he cannot. First, his friend Darryl has been stabbed and he cannot help him because the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stops him. Darryl gets lost. The DHS takes Marcus and his friend's prisoners and torture them. Marcus can hear his friends' cries but cannot help them.

2-Marcus is facing a conflict with authority. The authority is authoritarian so he cannot do much. He has to obey them. He is physically attacked so he feels cornered. Although he has tried to explain to them his situation, the DHS ignores and tortures him.

3- Marcus ' current stage of identity is foreclosure since he is obliged to do what the DHS tells him to do. He accepts not to rebel against them. He wants to be free and he wants his friends to be free, too. During this identity stage, teenagers tend to follow what the adults say. Adults sometimes pressure teenagers to accept the roles they want for them.

4- Marcus will rebel against the DHS. He will notice that the DHS is not helping American society against terrorism. He believes they are not reliable, so he will set an organization to fight against them. Probably, he will show he is more reliable than the DHS to protect America against terrorism.

5-Once at a party, I saw my best friend's fiancé cheating on her. I did not know what to do. My friend was madly in love with him. Finally, I decided not to tell her anything. I learnt that they had to find a solution without my help.

The first alternative is correct (A).

The passage narrates the speech of a person frustrated by the indifference in the personal treatment by people of good will. The complaint consists of the superficiality or the little attention given to his/her questions. That is, it is a criticism of the shallow advice he/her receives from these people. If they went deeper into the issues, they would give clearer and more objective advice.

What role did a paradox play in the events of macbeth?

The play hinges on the paradoxes you mention because throughout the play, appearances are deceptive which is what "fair is foul. foul is fair" means, i.e., what looks fair is foul and what looks foul is fair. Lady Macbeth tells her husband in Act 1, sc. 5, to put on a false expression to keep people from knowing what he's up to. At the end of the act, in sc. 7, Macbeth himself says the same thing. After the killing of Duncan in Act 2, both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth pretend innocense. In Act 2, sc. 3, Donalbain acknowledges the fact that people are being deceptive - "...there's daggers in men's smiles." The witches take advantage of Macbeth's paranoia and need for security by giving him a false sense of security with their apparitions. The second and third visions make Macbeth feel invulnerable to attack, but it's all a trick. Even as Malcolm and the others move toward Dunsinane, they are covering their actions with the limbs they've cut down from Birnam woods giving the appearance of moving trees rather than of moving men. In the end, the battle is "lost" by Macbeth and by Scotland in that Duncan is dead, but it is "won" because Macbeth is dead and Malcolm is now king.

The sentence, "at the carnival, she bought funnel cake cotton candy and a hot dog," uses commas correctly when punctuating a series. true false

False. As far as I know, this is how the commas should be placed:

At the carnival, she bought funnel cake, cotton candy and a hot dog.

Many people like to put a comma after the and, but I'm pretty sure that is grammatically incorrect. :)

What tone does this passage convey? Eugene was upset that his team was not playing better. “If they play like this in the first quarter, then they are definitely going to lose! It’s over before it’s even started.”

Why? Because he does not have much hope for his team as they not playing better so he have a pessimistic view that they would likely lose the match before it is even started.

What are some advantages of watching a play rather then reading a play?

You get more Information and get a visual interpretation of the play. So you can register it more than reading it. When the news is on and something happens do you want to watch it or read it? I hope I helped! (:
