QUESTION POSTED AT 16/10/2019 - 11:34 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. They keep photographs of all their friends Their houses are filled with an undigested mass of things Our books are a burden to us They never see a flower without wanting to pick it and put it in a vase Type E, F, G, or H for Blank 2. We are stifled by the sense of things They must write down everything they hear We like to paint pictures of our favorite scenes It is important to keep a clean home

The correct answer to which of the mentioned categories is not a demographic classification is personality.

Demograpy deals with the statistical study of populations, bearing in mind its flow in time and space, the size and structure, mobility etc. In order to acrry demographic analysis, different categories conveying crucial information are employed such as education, ethnicity, nationality, religious beliefs or some of the mentioned in the question age, gender and race.

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.

C. "(His eyes) were deep and thoughtful, the eyes of a man who is used to looking at death."


According to the excerpt from "the Sniper," the author Liam O'Flaherty describes the effect of the Irish Civil War on its participants. In that respect, he  depicts the Republican sniper as having an introspective and heavy look, as well as being used to looking at death. In fact, both enemy snipers have become so unreasoning that they shoot each other without realizing they are brothers.

Emit: 1. (verb) to produce, to voice omit: 1. (verb) to leave something out, to forget Which sentence contains correct word usage? The alarms omit a frequency that cannot be heard by the human ear. The teacher will omit the lowest score in order to increase the averages. We are attempting to emit the last few chapters in order to save paper. The movie emitted the offensive graphics that caused the boycott.

The correct answer is sentence 2 - The teacher will omit the lowest score in order to increase the averages.

Like the definitions already explained, to emit means to produce something, whereas to omit means to leave something out. Now, let's go through all sentences:

Sentence 1 - instead of omit, it should say emit (to emit a frequency means to produce it)

Sentence 3 - instead of emit, it should say omit (to omit chapters means to leave them out)

Sentence 4 - instead of emitted, it should say omitted (to delete the offensive graphics)

Sentence 2 is correct because the teacher wants to leave out the lowest scores so as to increase the averages; he doesn't want to produce them - that would be quite the opposite of what he is trying to do.

Writers organize their writings to make an impact on their readers. In Muir's writing about the Calypso Borealis, he places opposing views of his journey close together. Read the following paragraph. In two to four sentences, explain the opposite views described within the paragraph and discuss the impact of placing these opposite views close together. Oftentimes I had to sleep without blankets, and sometimes without supper, but usually I had no great difficulty in finding a loaf of bread here and there at the houses of the farmer settlers in the widely scattered clearings. With one of these large backwoods loaves I was able to wander many a long wild fertile mile in the forests and bogs, free as the winds, gathering plants, and glorying in God's abounding inexhaustible spiritual beauty bread. Storms, thunderclouds, winds in the woods—were welcomed as friends. thank you in advance :)

First Muir described how he slept sometimes without supper, and then he says he had no difficulty finding a loaf of bread at the farmers' houses. He starts of the paragraph with a complaint of sleeping without blankets, and starts to transition again into nature and its beauty. In the paragraph, Muir says "Storms, thunderclouds, winds in the woods—were welcomed as friends;" when we hear storms, thunderclouds, winds, etc. it brings fear, damage, but Muir then says "were welcomed as friends."
