Which statement best describes how the order of events heightens tension in this passage? If Pyramus had left at the same time as Thisbe, he might have seen that she was not killed by the lion. If the lioness had arrived later, she would have encountered Pyramus rather than Thisbe. If Pyramus had arrived earlier, he would have seen the lion attack Thisbe. If Pyramus and Thisbe had arrived at the same time, they would have encountered the lioness together.

The statement that best describes how the order of events heightens tension would be: If Pyramus had left at the same time as Thisbe, he might have seen that she was not killed by the lion.
In the story, Pyramus just see the lioness with blood covering its mouth. So Pyramus just make the assumption that the Lioness killed Thisbe

Channing had been working for the lumber company for six years. He had taken extra shifts, arrived early, and trained new employees. Now that the position of assistant manager was opening up, he hoped all of his dedication and hard work was worth it. What is the central idea of this paragraph?


Answer:

Gather references, and prepare your résumé.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.

Heather ran to school because she was afraid that she would be late again. When she arrived at her first class, she realized that she had left her homework folder on the kitchen counter. She did not have any of her work. Under her breath, she muttered, “I finally did my homework, and then I forget it at home. Argh!” Heather’s teacher was walking through the rows of desks collecting homework. He asked Heather if she had her assignment. She shook her head, and he said, “Again?” Based on the supporting details, what can you conclude about Heather?


Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

The snow and ice that arrived last night elated kids and adults alike when they awoke to a winte wonderland. What is the simple subject of th sentence?


Well; You have the classics

1984, you might have been asked to read this one already in school, if not I suggest going ahead and reading it; its fun to be ahead of your class. 

Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.

You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website. 

Personally I prefer fantasy novels; 

Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist 
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery 

Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind 
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.

Pick the words that correctly complete the sentence. Natasha had _____ for half an hour before her friend arrived. been waiting is waiting was waiting be waiting


The sentence from “The Most Dangerous Game”, by Richard Connell, that suggests Person versus Person conflict is The man’s only answer was to raise with his thumb the hammer of his revolver.

In this sentence, we can infer that the man with the revolver is General Zaroff, a bored Russian General whose only pastime is hunting. He is aiming at Rainsford, who landed on the island after a shipwreck. There are two important types of conflict, external conflict, and internal conflict. In this case, there is an external conflict between two different characters who struggle against each other, one is the prey and the other one is the hunter.

We can use the formula for binomial
distribution in calculating for the probability that exactly two customers out
five will default on their payments.

The formula is:
 
P(r) = nCr*q^(n-r)*p^r 
 

Where:

n = sample size, 5

r = successes, 2

q = failure rate, 96% = 0.96

r = success rate, 4% = 0.04
 

Substituting on the formula:

P = 5C2*0.96^3*0.04^2 

P = 0.0142 or 1.42%
