Please select the best answer and click "submit." Read this excerpt from Canto XX of Dante's Inferno, in which Virgil describes the punishment of false prophets and fortune tellers: Because their faces turned round to their haunches So that they were compelled to walk backwards Since they could not possibly see ahead. Which sentence best explains Dante's intended use of symbolism in this passage? A. The sinners' compulsion to look backward darkly mirrors their strained attempts to see into the future in life. B. The figurative language is able to make abstract ideas, like compulsion, more concrete for the reader. C. The sinners' heads are twisted around so that they can only see where they're going by walking backward. D. The compulsion to walk backwards represents the sinners' preoccupation with practices from the primitive past.

The correct answer is A. The sinners' compulsion to look backward darkly mirrors their strained attempts to see into the future in life.

Explanation:

The word symbolism refers to the use of symbols, objects or words to represent a more abstract or complex idea. In the case of literature, symbolism is one of the most common devices used to give certain actions, words or events a more deeper meaning. In the epic poem "The Divine Comedy" by the Italian writer Dante Alighieri the use of symbolism is quite common and mainly linked to religious ideas, this can be seen in Dante's Inferno description of punishment for prophets and fortune tellers who are the people that use different practices to try to predict the future and who are punished in Dante's Inferno by having their faces turned around which force them to walk backward. The punishment these people received is linked symbolically to their practices of trying to know the future as their new condition in the Inferno stops them from looking forward which is what they did or tried to do during all their lives as they wanted to look forward in time or know the future. Thus, the symbolism is mainly used to show "the sinner's compulsion to look backward darkly mirror their strained attempts to see into the future in life" as this punishment represent in a symbolic way their sin was mainly to try to look forward or in the future and because of this they are condemned to never be able to look forward again.

When should you use visuals such as graphs, photographs, or charts in your paper? A) Always, in order to add interest B) Sparingly in order to avoid distraction C) Only when necessary to support the content D) Just when they fit nicely within the formatting of the text

I think the correct answer would be C. You should only use visuals such as graphs, photographs, or charts in your paper only when needed to support the content of a presentation. For instance in research presentations, it would be better if data are presented in graphs in order for the audience to picture out clearly the results. Displaying only numbers would only confuse the audience and would not mean anything.
