A My computer was working very slowly, I had to restart it for the updates to take effect. B My computer was working very slowly and I had to restart it for the updates to take effect. C My computer was working very slowly I had to restart it for the updates to take effect. D My computer was working very slowly; I had to restart it for the updates to take effect.

The correct option is D.

"My computer was working very slowly; I had to restart it for the updates to take effect" is the correct option because we have two independent clauses combined by means a semicolon.

  • Option A is incorrect because it uses a comma to join independent clauses.
  • Option B is incorrect because there is no comma preceding the conjunction "and".
  • Opcion C is incorrect because there is no punctuation mark, or a conjunction to combine the sentence.

Occasionally, students in elementary school are allowed to advance to the next grade even though they have not successfully completed the lower grades. Advocates of social promotion think that keeping a child in a grade for longer than a year hurts his or her development and self esteem. Write an essay stating your opinion on this issue, making sure to support your opinion with convincing reasons/

This prompt is more so persuasive and personal both mixed into one because I am expressing my own opinion and I am trying to persuade the reader to agree with  me. SOL writing is practice and preparation for the real exam. When I submitted my essay, I got feed back on how I would score on a 1-4 scale if it were a real SOL. I also included notes from my teacher that could help me on the SOL. Then I included a reflection for myself to see in what areas I need to work on in order for my work to be perfect or better.

Read the passage. He is called by thy name, For he calls himself a Lamb: He is meek & he is mild, He became a little child: I a child & thou a lamb, We are called by his name. According to “The Lamb” by William Blake, how are the child and the lamb alike? A. Both are tender and soft. B. Both are young and naive. C. Both are meek and mild.

According to "The Lamb" by William Blake, the child and the lamb are alike because C. both are meek and mild.

In the poem, the child and the lamb are similar because they are both meek and mild. The word "meek" means, in this case, being gentle and quiet but also submissive, while the word "mild" is used to describe something or someone that is humble and gentle in feeling. Furthermore, in Blake's poem, the child and the lamb also symbolize Jesus Christ; therefore, they represent innocence too.

People on either side of the smartphones-for-teens debate can't agree on the evidence. Sure, there's proof of cyber bullying. There's also proof of educational benefits. Yet nothing is conclusive, so no valid judgment can be made for everyone on whether smartphones should be banned from teens. Anyone supporting such a restriction is naïve and uniformed. He or she is reacting from emotion instead of using his or her brain to study all the evidence and make a decision specific to his or her own teen. The bottom line is it's up to parents to be parents. Why spend billions of dollars on trying to stop cyber bullying or explore educational apps? It's probably just another human assumption that we can control the technology we've created. Trying is a waste of time and money. Which of the following is true about this argument excerpt? a)It is respectful in tone to the audience and supports its claim with specific, credible evidence. b)It contains specific, credible evidence but uses a disrespectful tone that should be edited. c) It fails to support its claim with specific, credible evidence and uses a disrespectful tone. d)It uses a respectful tone but needs specific, credible evidence to support the claim.

C. The text provides opinion with no evidence, and is disrespectful by saying people who support the ban of smartphones are not using their brain, and calling them "naive and uninformed".

What is subconscious social commentary? when a writer makes positive remarks about a topic when a writer makes negative remarks about a topic when a writer directly attributes a problem to social customs when a writer points to a problem caused by social customs without explicitly challenging those customs

Answer: when a writer points to a problem caused by social customs without explicitly challenging those customs.

A social commentary is the use of rhetorical devices in order to comment on the problems of society. This is usually a critique, and it is intended to promote change or to appeal to people's sense of justice. However, when this commentary is done subconsciously, the writer points towards the problem but does not explicitly challenge the customs.

Read the passage. But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover! A savage place! as holy and enchanted As e’er beneath a waning moon was haunted By woman wailing for her demon lover! In “Kubla Khan” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, which poetic sound device echoes the human sound that is described in these lines? A. the assonance between “green” and “cedarn” B. the consonance between “down” and “green” C. the assonance between “chasm” and “slanted” D. the alliteration between “woman” and “wailing

Answer: D. the alliteration between “woman” and “wailing.

Alliteration occurs when the initial sounds of successive or closely associated syllables is repeated. These sounds are usually identical, and tend to be consonant. In this case, the initial sounds of "woman" and "wailing" are very similar, and the author is repeating them in order to remind us of the sound of the human wailing. Alliteration also provides rhythm to a poem.

QUESTION POSTED AT 16/10/2019 - 11:16 PM

Read the passage and answer the question that follows: Despite our best efforts as parents, we will always make mistakes in raising our children. It's inevitable. There are so many decisions to be made in any given day, week, month, or year. It's an inhuman task to make all of these decisions correctly. Who would even want to try for perfection? We shouldn't worry too much, though, because it is precisely our mistakes that teach our children the most about life. Life is full of mistakes, obstacles, and trouble. Shielding our children from these by striving for perfection in our own parenting does them no favors. Given this, a parent might be tempted to give up trying to make good decisions and simply let the chips fall where they may. Admittedly, that attitude is not without its benefits, but it goes too far in the other direction. Children are much more observant than we think, but often draw the wrong conclusions from what they observe. If we give up trying to make the right decisions, they might get the message that we don't care about their future. We can take comfort in this much: we teach our children even when we're not trying to. That doesn't mean we should stop trying to do our best, to make the right decisions whenever possible. It just means that we shouldn't beat ourselves up when we make mistakes. Either it won't matter because it's something small, or it just might build some character in our children, a commodity that will serve them well. Which of the following does the author do to strengthen his or her argument? Cites reputable sources to back up important claims Defends the argument's underlying assumptions Avoids introducing emotional appeals Addresses and refutes an opposing viewpoint

Addresses and refutes an opposing viewpoint.

QUESTION POSTED AT 16/10/2019 - 11:13 PM

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. Which of these two points does Morris make to illustrate how people feel when they are tied to things? Choose one answer from each group. Type the LETTER ONLY for each answer in the correct blank. Type A, B, C, or D for Blank 1.
