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.

Jellyfish are awesome animals. Jellyfish are free-swimming aquatic animals. They have a gelatinous umbrella-shaped bell and trailing tentacles. Just because jellyfish are called fish they are not fish. A group of jellyfish are called a "bloom", "swarm", or "smack".

Jellyfish use their tentacles to sting. Most are harmless to humans but stings from some species can kill people. An example is a box jellyfish. A species of box jellyfish can produce extremely potent venom. They are also cnidarian invertebrates. They are distinguished by their cube-shaped medusae.

There are many species of jellyfish. Here are some from the Gulf of Mexico. A Moon Jellyfish, having a 4 petal shaped like reproductive organs being able to see through their bell. The Atlantic Sea Nettle can consume large prey such as minnows and small crustaceans. A Canon Ball jellyfish, having tiny warts located on its bell packed with stinging tentacles. Pink Maine, got its name from the recently added family of jellyfish. Finally, The Comb Jelly, have simple bodies and are classified as Ctenophores because they lack specialized stinging cells.

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

PARIS: This is that banish'd haughty Montague, That murder'd my love's cousin, with which grief, It is supposed, the fair creature died; And here is come to do some villanous shame To the dead bodies: I will apprehend him. (Comes forward) Stop thy unhallow'd toil, vile Montague! Can vengeance be pursued further than death? Condemned villain, I do apprehend thee: Obey, and go with me; for thou must die. ROMEO: I must indeed; and therefore came I hither. Good gentle youth, tempt not a desperate man; Fly hence, and leave me: think upon these gone; Let them affright thee. I beseech thee, youth, Put not another sin upon my head, By urging me to fury: O, be gone! By heaven, I love thee better than myself; For I come hither arm'd against myself: Stay not, be gone; live, and hereafter say, A madman's mercy bade thee run away. PARIS: I do defy thy conjurations, And apprehend thee for a felon here. Which type of external conflict is reflected in this excerpt from act V of Romeo and Juliet? A. person versus society B. person versus the unknown C. person versus nature D. person versus person

Answer: D. Person versus person.

Explanation: in literature, a conflict is a struggle between opposite forces, usually between a character (the main character or a very important one) and himself (internal conflict), society or another character (external conflict). In the given lines from "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare, we can see an example of a person vs person in literature, a conflict, between Paris and Romeo, because they are both in love with Juliet.

For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. What is the effect of the word “atom” in this line and later in the poem?

In the poem "Song of Myself," Whitman talks about the universality of human experience. This is what he refers to when he says "for every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you." In this way, the author wants to highlight how every human is as much of a human, and as real, as every other. They all have an equal right to be on Earth, to be happy, to live life, to have experiences. The author uses the word "atom" to highlight that all matter follows this rule, regardless of what it constitutes. He also uses it to explain that his conviction is so deep and his argument so all-encompassing that it even applies to the specific atoms of things.

Read the sentence below and answer the following question: BUT HE ANSWERED NOT A WORD; like the last column of some ruined temple, he remained standing mute and solitary in the middle of the otherwise deserted room. —Herman Melville, "Bartleby the Scrivener" In the bolded section, how does the addition of "not a word" change the impact of this introductory clause? It emphasizes the lack of response: no answer was given at all. It emphasizes the reference to solitary later in the sentence: "standing mute and solitary." It suggests the narrator needed something: even a non-verbal response would have worked. It suggests the feeling of isolation the narrator feels: the room is deserted.

This comes from the short story “Bartleby, the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street” written by Herman Melville. It is the story of a lawyer who employs a very strange man , Bartleby, as a scrivener. He relates how he would ask Bartleby to do some work but he would just refuse to do it, or stand by the window and say nothing.

Question: In the bolded section, how does the addition of "not a word" change the impact of this introductory clause?

Answer: A.  It emphasizes the lack of response: no answer was given at all.

From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler takes the form of a letter from Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler to her lawyer, Saxonberg. And what a letter it is.

Twelve-year-old Claudia Kinkaid decides to run away from home with the help of her little brother, Jamie (who is just nine years old). With Jamie's money and Claudia's smarts, they bust out of that suburban joint and run to somewhere that any kid would love. Disneyland? The rainforest? Sweden? Nope—they end up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Less kid-friendly, but more filled with pretty, elegant things.
