I like swimming better than jogging. The bolded words are what kind of clause? adjective clause adverb clause noun clause


An epic simile is basically a regular simile, but it takes place over the course of several lines in poetry. There is no evidence in the excerpt provided that the correct answer could be a simile, so we’ll rule that option out.

The phrase starting in medias generally means that it’s a somewhat introduction. It can often introduce the story in the beginning, or be a great start if you want to start your story with a flashback. I’d say this is a good answer for the question, but just in case there’s a better one let’s go over the other options as well.

To invoke the muse would be to get inspiration for whatever it is you’re going to start doing. For example, let’s say you’re writing a story, and you have no ‘muse.’ Here you’d ‘pray to the muse gods’ to give you muse, or in another word, inspiration. This is clearly not the answer because the passage is not invoking any muse. They clearly already know which direction they’re taking with the story.

And finally, the use of epithets would be to specifically describing something and/ or someone. Sure, this passage caries descriptive detail, but that’s not its primary focus.

In conclusion, the correct answer to this question is b ) starting in medias res.

Determine whether the underlined sentence opener in the sentence below begins with an adjective, adverb, infinitive, or preposition. From the museum, we went to the train station. Please select the best answer from the choices provided adjective adverb infinitive preposition


1. She entered the large, dilapidated castle fearfully.

2. The door squeaked loudly as she pushed it open. She paused, listening carefully.

3. Hearing nothing, she pushed the old door open just wide enough to slip through.

4. Before she closed the door, she glanced behind her. Fat white snowflakes fell in tight circles like dozens of icy ballerinas.

5. A thick blanket of snow already covered the grass and sidewalk. She would never make it home tonight.

6. She closed the door gently and it clicked close with a solid finality. She felt her heart sink to the pit of her stomach like a stone.

7. The foyer was lit soft, dim glow created from candles flickering along the lofty ceiling.

8. The light threw large, frightening shadows that forced her to stay close to the wall.

9. She walked tentatively down the hall, the heels of her shoes clicking sharply against the hard stone.

10. At the end of the hallway, she paused suddenly, unsure of which way to turn. The left fork was long and dark. She could hear the foreboding laughter of children and the melody of a piano. But to the right… the right was lit with a weak candle that was already fluttering in an unseen wind. Taking a deep breath, she turned right.

1. Select the correct word that indicates the demonstrative adjective in the sentence. “Those shoes are exactly the same as mine,” she said in an amused tone. amused Those mine exactly 2. What type of conjunction is the bolded phrase? The judge listened to the explanation in order that he might decide fairly. subordinating correlative coordinating 3. Read the sentence. The coral reef was very beautiful. Which answer correctly describes the bolded word? The word “very” is an adjective describing which one. The word “very” is an adverb describing when. The word “very” is an adverb describing to what extent. The word “very” is an adjective describing how much.


1. Those

Demonstrative adjectives are adjectives that modify nouns or pronouns by pointing or indicating if they are near or far in distance or time. Those is a demonstrative adjective because it modifies the noun “shoes” by indicating some shoes that are far in distance.

2. Subordinating

Subordinating conjunctions are conjunctions that introduce a subordinating (or dependent) clause, and that join dependent clauses to independent clauses. There are many subordinating conjunctions, one of them is in order that. In the sentence, this conjunction helps to make a transition between an independent clause (the judge listened to the explanation) and a dependent one (in order that he might decide fairly.), and it also serves to introduce the latter.

3. The word “very” is an adverb describing to what extent.

In the sentence, very does not act as an adjective because it is not describing a noun, instead, it acts as an adverb because it modifies an adjective: beautiful by describing to what extent or degree the coral reef was beautiful.
