Applying a ______________ to material within study materials will help students to recall information during a test. a. Visual framework c. Ladder system b. Personal key d. None of these

The correct option is A

In the media and technology era that we live, we can not conceive a speaker speaking to the audience without visual support. Not only do they make the presentation more entertaining, but they help the public understand more and better the arguments presented by the speaker. The same happens in the subject of reading or work that is delivered to students, these should always be accompanied by a support, or visual framework that helps or guides the student in reading.

Read this excerpt from "The Hypocrisy of American Slavery" by Frederick Douglass, a former slave and a leader of the abolitionist movement. Whom does the speaker address in this speech? What to the American slave is your Fourth of July? I answer, a day that reveals to him more than all other days of the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mock; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are to him mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy —a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation of the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour. Go search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival. all residents of the United States all the nations of the world the white population of the United States African Americans still under slavery leaders of the Southern states

The correct answer is C. The white population of the United States

Explanation:

The audience of a text or speech is the group of people the author is addressing to during a speech or text as the ideas or topic the author is addressing concerns to this specific group of people or is related to it. Determining to whom is the author addressing is not always easy as it is not usually stated explicitly but suggested through the context of the text or speech and the language used in it. In the case of the excerpt from "The Hypocrisy of American Slavery," the author criticizes the celebration of Fourth of July and other common celebrations in the U.S. as he believes these celebrations just show the injustice and cruelty slavers had suffered and not the freedom the people claim. Additionally, during all the text the author emphasizes the barbarity in the U.S. and even states this country abuses do not compare to the abuses in any other country.

This implies the author is criticizing and addressing to the oppressor of slavers and considering he is part of the abolitionist movement and the context of the text it can be concluded he is addressing to the white population in the U.S. as it is this part of the population the one that is responsible for the abuses and all the elements the author criticizes in the text.

He told me, he did not doubt, that, in eight years more, he should be able to supply the governor’s gardens with sunshine, at a reasonable rate: but he complained that his stock was low, and entreated me "to give him something as an encouragement to ingenuity, especially since this had been a very dear season for cucumbers." Which phrase from the passage best helps the reader to identify the passage as a satire?

Read the passage from "Ozymandias." I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which word from the passage indicates that the face on the statue is showing contempt? antique trunkless visage sneer

Answer :

Cambridge English Dictionary defines "sneer" as "an unkind expression on your face that shows you do not respect or approve of someone or something."

The word "sneer" from the passage indicates that the face on the statue is showing contempt.

In the poem "Ozymandias" by P.B. Shelly, Ozymandias is an insensitive, haughty, self-obsessed and arrogant ruler who believed that he was the greatest king ever. He gets a statue made to immortalize himself to the future generations. However, his statue does not stand the test of time but the art of the skilled sculptor does and even in the shattered face of the statue one can make out the cold, heartless and arrogant look of the ruler.

Which evidence from "The Rosetta Stone” supports the claim that Thomas Young played a key role in helping to decipher the hieroglyphs on the Rosetta Stone? A) Unfortunately, Young abandoned his research, believing that the letters in the cartouche were just an exception . . . B) Young used an old code breaker's technique of looking for a crib, or a word that can be identified in the text. C) Champollion deciphered the cartouche by identifying hieroglyphs translated by Young, and he used his knowledge of Coptic to discover that it belonged to the pharaoh Ramses. D) Young's results were published and fell into the hands of a talented linguist, Jean-Francois Champollion

C) Champollion deciphered the cartouche by identifying hieroglyphs translated by Young, and he used his knowledge of Coptic to discover that it belonged to the pharaoh Ramses.

A is wrong because abandoning your research does not lead to playing a key role. D is also wrong because while it states that Young's results were published, it doesn't indicate whether or not they were useful. B is the second-best answer since it shows that he made some progress using an old code breaker's technique but doesn't show that it was key role. Option C is best because it shows how Young's work was the stepping stone that Champollion needed to decipher the cartouche.
