NO ONE IS ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS!?!? TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD QUESTIONS!!! 1. In these chapters (20-25) Scout gets a lot of information about "trash," "background," family name, and quality folks. Summarize in a short paragraph what she learns. 2. The gossip about Tom includes that "the veneer's mighty thin." This concept of thin surface and what is underneath has been brought up several times by Lee. Explain what point she is making, using the symbols or descriptions she has used elsewhere in the novel.

1. Scout learns generally quality folks by the stories of her community. She realizes that there are people who are like "trash" because of their prejudices like in the case of the Ewells. She learns that the background or raising of a person affects how one acts like Boo Radley. A reader can conclude that Scout considers quality people as neighbors who earn self-respect by respecting others.2. The "thin or thick" concept seen in Tom is highlighted several times in the novel. The scary stories that the children tell about Boo Radley are a good example. The children learn to change their minds about Boo Radley and believe he is more than what people perceive of him. Another symbol is what Scout calls mockingbirds. Mockingbirds are really innocent people in misjudged situations. They have a important role in society but are belittled.

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/

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 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

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. 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.

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

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

Explanation:

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.

Answer: A (D.) helping verb may be added to a main verb to make a verb phrase.

Some of the most common helping verbs are "be" and "have", which are used to form the progressive tenses and the perfect tenses. In that way, in the sentence "John is singing", "is" is the helping verb, while "singing" is the main verb.

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.

No, Mrs. Peters doesn’t need supervising. For that matter, a sheriff’s wife is married to the law. Ever think of it that way, Mrs. Peters? Which of the following most accurately describes this excerpt? a.It is verbal irony because the County Attorney means precisely the opposite of what he is actually saying. . b.It is dramatic irony because the audience knows that the County Attorney does not actually mean what he is saying. c.It is situational irony because the County Attorney has actually issued a relevant warning to Mrs. Peters without realizing it. d.It is not an example of any type of irony because the County Attorney is simply making a statement.

Answer: c.It is situational irony because the County Attorney has actually issued a relevant warning to Mrs. Peters without realizing it.

Explanation: an irony is a state of affairs or an event that seems contrary to what one expects and it often has an amusing result. A situational irony is when what happens is the contrary to what the characters or the audience are expecting to happen. In the given excerpt we can see an example of a situational irony, because the County Attorney has actually issued a relevant warning to Mrs. Peters without realizing it (he didn't expect that to happen).
