Two fifteen-year-old girls stood eyeing one another on first acquaintance. Finally one little girl said, "Which do you like best, people or things?" The other little girl said, "Things." They were friends at once. I suppose we all go through a phase when we like things best; and not only like them, but want to possess them under our hand. The passion for accumulation is upon us. We make "collections," we fill our rooms, our walls, our tables, our desks, with things, things, things. Many people never pass out of this phase. They never see a flower without wanting to pick it and put it in a vase, they never enjoy a book without wanting to own it, nor a picture without wanting to hang it on their walls. They keep photographs of all their friends and kodak albums of all the places they visit, they save all their theater programmes and dinner cards, they bring home all their alpenstocks. Their houses are filled with an undigested mass of things, like the terminal moraine where a glacier dumps at length everything it has picked up during its progress through the lands. But to some of us a day comes when we begin to grow weary of things. We realize that we do not possess them; they possess us. Our books are a burden to us, our pictures have destroyed every restful wall-space, our china is a care, our photographs drive us mad, our programmes and alpenstocks fill us with loathing. We feel stifled with the sense of things, and our problem becomes, not how much we can accumulate, but how much we can do without. We send our books to the village library, and our pictures to the college settlement. Such things as we cannot give away, and have not the courage to destroy, we stack in the garret, where they lie huddled in dim and dusty heaps, removed from our sight, to be sure, yet still faintly importunate. Then, as we breathe more freely in the clear space that we have made for ourselves, we grow aware that we must not relax our vigilance, or we shall be once more overwhelmed. For it is an age of things. As I walk through the shops at Christmas time and survey their contents, I find it a most depressing spectacle. All of us have too many things already, and here are more! And everybody is going to send some of them to everybody else! I sympathize with one of my friends, who, at the end of the Christmas festivities, said, "If I see another bit of tissue paper and red ribbon, I shall scream." It extends to all our doings. For every event there is a "souvenir." We cannot go to luncheon and meet our friends but we must receive a token to carry away. Even our children cannot have a birthday party, and play games, and eat good things, and be happy. The host must receive gifts from every little guest, and provide in return some little remembrance for each to take home. Truly, on all sides we are beset, and we go lumbering along through life like a ship encrusted with barnacles, which can never cut the waves clean and sure and swift until she has been scraped bare again. And there seems little hope for us this side our last port. And to think that there was a time when folk had not even that hope! When a man’s possessions were burned with him, so that he might, forsooth, have them all about him in the next world! Suffocating thought! To think one could not even then be clear of things, and make at least a fresh start! That must, indeed, have been in the childhood of the race.

Mond's description in terms of family life, problems and world state is not accurate nor a good solution. It is because in Mond's words, you can tell that he tries to pin point the negativity of the world without looking on the brighter side. It is true that he has a point and the negativity happening in our world does happen but he does not try to open his view in positivity, that is why it wasn't accurate.

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


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.

As he is led into the building at the end of the play, on what does Creon blame his suffering? On his fear of anarchy and "crimes kept in the dark" On a god that has driven him "headlong" toward doom On a prophet who speaks of a house "full of men and women weeping" On the curse that affects Oedipus's house "generation after generation"


On his fear of anarchy and "crimes kept in the dark"


He understands that his own actions have caused these events and blames himself. Creon blames himself for everything that has happened, and, a broken man, he asks his servants to help him inside. The order he valued so much has been protected, and he is still the king, but he has acted against the gods and lost his children and his wife as a result. After Creon condemns himself, the Leader of the Chorus closes by saying that although the gods punish the proud, punishment brings wisdom.

Read the excerpt from "The Revolt of Mother." Her mother scrubbed a dish fiercely. “You ain’t found out yet we’re women-folks, Nanny Penn,” said she. “You ain’t seen enough of men-folks yet to. One of these days you’ll find it out, an’ then you’ll know that we know only what men-folks think we do, so far as any use of it goes, an’ how we’d ought to reckon men-folks in with Providence, an’ not complain of what they do any more than we do of the weather.” The excerpt best demonstrates which emerging theme? Society works best when women stay in particular roles and men stay in particular roles and the roles remain separate. Society delegates equal power to both men and women in order to ensure the best outcome for families. Society robs men of equal relationships with women by demanding that men take on superior roles in the family. Society robs women of their power and keeps them subjected to the wills of men even when it’s not in their best interest.

The correct answer is D.

In this excerpt from "The Revolt of Mother, we can see how women are subjected to man's will in every aspect of their lives.

Women are robbed of her power because society imposes that they should "reckon men-folks in with Providence". This means that they are weak and unprotected, and must acknoledge their man as their protectors and keepers, as if they were God's Providence.

Women are subjected to the will of men, since they control what they should or should not know. Women's education was decided by men, and they were only taught (if they were taught at all) only what men considered they should learn.

Women were expected to comply and not complain about their men's actions "any more than they do of the weather". This subjected women to abuse on the part of all of the men in their life, which they accepted because of the idea that "that's what men do" and nothing could be done about it.

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.
