What is the theme of Ode to a Grecian Urn? A. Beauty is eternal. B. Beauty is a universal language among friend and foe. C. both of these D. none of these


Answer:

Option B. The theme of “Ode to a Grecian Urn” is that beauty is eternal.

Explanation:

“Ode to a Grecian urn” is a poem written by the English poet John Keats in May 1818 and anonymously published on 1820 in an Art magazine. The central theme of the poem examines the eternity that beauty and truth holds and relates them to how our own lives are transcendent. For the speaker,it is through beauty that humankind connects to the truth, and how complex it is for us to comprehend that both concepts, truth and beauty, are indeed eternal while our existence is not. The speaker is not only meditating on beauty and its connection to art but at the same time is trying to understand the complex emotions that death awakens in him, and how inevitable it is.

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 05:19 AM

Which excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis” most foreshadows that the narrator will feel regret for something he has done to Doodle? But sometimes (like right now), as I sit in the cool, green-draped parlor, the grindstone begins to turn, and time with all its changes is ground away—and I remember Doodle. Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did, so I dragged him across the burning cotton field to share with him the only beauty I knew, Old Woman Swamp. There is within me (and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at times I was mean to Doodle. Once I had succeeded in teaching Doodle to walk, I began to believe in my own infallibility and I prepared a terrific development program for him, unknown to Mama and Daddy, of course.


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.

The poem makes fun of common female practices to emphasize the obsession with outer beauty. C. The poem uses pretend characters that readers have probably heard of in other poems. D. The poem scolds women who use their feminine beauty and charm to control a man.


The correct answer to this is:

D.Helen feels water on her hands and makes a connection
between objects and language.

In this chapter, Helen Keller describes her first
experiences with her new teacher.  Keller
finally understood the idea that a word Anne Sullivan, her new teacher, is
spelling “water” corresponds to the
water flowing over Keller’s hand.  This realization
led Keller to create connections and open doors of knowledge and opportunity
previously closed to her.

Which sentences in this excerpt from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Winter Dreams” show that Dexter’s interest in Judy Jones has more to do with her beauty than her personality? It began like that—and continued, with varying shades of intensity, on such a note right up to the denouement. Dexter surrendered a part of himself to the most direct and unprincipled personality with which he had ever come in contact. Whatever Judy wanted, she went after with the full pressure of her charm. There was no divergence of method, no jockeying for position or premeditation of effects—there was a very little ment

Posted in English

The correct answer should be Dexter
surrendered a part of himself to the most direct and unprincipled
personality with which he had ever come in contact.

That is

the correct answer because her personality is not really one that is appealing to people since she’s unprincipled and direct, which shows that he was into her because of her charms.

1. Read the excerpt from Fast Food Nation. Instead of relying upon a small, stable, well-paid, and well-trained workforce, the fast food industry seeks out part-time, unskilled workers who are willing to accept low pay. Teenagers have been the perfect candidates for these jobs, not only because they are less expensive to hire than adults, but also because their youthful inexperience makes them easier to control. Which of the following choices best presents a counterclaim to the argument presented in this excerpt? A. Teenagers have not yet developed skills that make them valuable employees in the workforce. B. Fast food restaurants are able to employ people who otherwise might not be able to find a job because of the low skill level required to perform the tasks. C. The McDonald brothers designed the Speedee Service System based on the assembly line systems of American factories in the early twentieth century. D. By law, fast food restaurants must offer equal employment opportunities to those seeking work. 2. Read the paragraph. Teaching the rambunctious group of canines at the obedience school was a great deal of work, but each instructor took a respite once the dogs were placed in their individual kennels. Which word is closest in meaning to the underlined word? A. vacation B. beverage C. payment D. break 3. Read the excerpt from Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Death by Black Hole.” If you stumbled upon a black hole and found yourself falling feet-first toward its center, then as you got closer, the black hole’s force of gravity would grow astronomically. Curiously, you would not feel this force at all because, like anything in free fall, you are weightless. What you do feel, however, is something far more sinister. While you fall, the black hole’s force of gravity at your two feet, they being closer to the black hole’s center, accelerates them faster than does the weaker force of gravity at your head. The difference between the two is known officially as the tidal force, which grows precipitously as you draw nearer to the black hole’s center. For Earth, and for most cosmic places, the tidal force across the length of your body is minuscule and goes unnoticed. But in your feet-first fall toward a black hole the tidal forces are all you notice. Which sentence from the excerpt best supports the idea that falling into a black hole would be excruciatingly painful? A. Curiously, you would not feel this force at all because, like anything in free fall, you are weightless. B. What you do feel, however, is something far more sinister. C. For Earth, and for most cosmic places, the tidal force across the length of your body is minuscule and goes unnoticed. D.But in your feet-first fall toward a black hole the tidal forces are all you notice. 4. Read the excerpt from Rudolfo Anaya’s essay “Take the Tortillas Out of Your Poetry.” Tortillas and poetry. They go hand in hand. Books nourish the spirit, bread nourishes our bodies. Our distinct cultures nourish each one of us, and as we know more and more about the art and literature of the different cultures, we become freer and freer. . . . I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like to sample different ethnic foods, the breads of many many groups; just as many of us enjoy sampling books from different areas of the world. I travel to foreign countries, and I know more about myself as I learn more about my fellow human beings. Censorship imposes itself in my path of knowledge, and that activity can be justified by no one. Which phrase from the excerpt best helps the reader identify the author’s purpose? A. “I know more about myself as I learn more about my fellow human beings” B. “I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like to sample different ethnic foods” C. “many of us enjoy sampling books from different areas of the world” D. “we know more and more about the art and literature of the different cultures”

1. The correct answer is D. Although the excerpt uses teenagers as an example, the central claim is that fast food companies hire unskilled workers. Thus, it’s most effective to produce a counterclaim that actually debunks the initial argument. Since the fast food industry offers equal employment opportunities, it legally cannot seek only unskilled workers. 2. The correct answer is D. If you don’t know that “respite” means “break,” you can determine its meaning from context clues. The sentence begins by saying that teaching the dogs is a lot of hard work, so we can infer that the instructors were tired. Then, the sentence says that they took a respite when the dogs were put in their individual kennels, meaning that the instructors were no longer training the dogs. Thus, we can deduce that the trainers were on break, or taking a respite. 3. The correct answer is B. The word “sinister” is the key word that tells us falling into a black hole would be exruciatingly painful. “Sinister” is a feeling that something harmful or evil is happening. Thus, the use of sinister tells us that black holes would be horribly painful. 4. The correct answer is D. Throughout the poem, the poetic voice is comparing bread and books, specifically of other cultures. He’s trying to show us that by eating different cultural foods and reading literature from different cultures, we learn more about ourselves and the world around us.

Please give me examples of topic sentences with controlling ideas for a topic about my favorite movie

Whatever you want to talk about in your paragraph, your topic sentence will be a sort of summary or preview that will be supported by all the other sentences in your paragraph, so you have to decide what the paragraph is going to be about before you can write your topic sentences. 

Let’s look at “Movies.” What do you want to say about movies? 
Going to the movies is a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon? Movie special effects today are far superior to those of films just 10 years ago? Movies are a hugh waste of money? A “controlling” idea is an idea that makes a reader ask a question. Any time a topic sentence has a good “controlling” idea, the reader will have his or her curiosity raised.

 A topic sentence is the first sentence of a paragraph, that tells what the paragraph is going to be about.

Sara left home at 11:15am. It took her 5 minutes to drive to the mall. She shopped for 55 minutes and spent 1.5 hours at the beauty shop. She had to wait 15 minutes to get food at the take-out restaurant. It took her another 10 minutes to drive home. If she drove straight home, what time did she return?


Answer:

Option 1.

Step-by-step explanation:

As per table given

Option A. Range between the maximum and minimum values for taco truck one will be the mean value of the truck 1 for 10 days

= (721+658+437+527+601+468+425+431+508+515)/10 = 5291/10 = 529.10

Range between maximum and minimum value for truck 2

= (462+471+426+654+647+732+701+684+632+698)/10 = 6107/10 = 610.70

Therefore the range between maximum and minimum values for truck 2 is greater than truck 1.

Option B. is not true because food truck 1 sold the most on day 1 and truck 2 on day 6.

Option C. is not true because on average truck 2 sold more tacos than truck 1 over the period of 10 days.

Option D. Median of truck 1 is 601 while for truck 2 is 647 so this option is also not valid.

Therefore option A. is the answer.

In “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” the speaker is a human, who experiences the startling beauty of nature through the unexpected discovery of an entire sea of daffodils by the water. This poem is pensive and calm, using light, frivolous vocabulary: the daffodils are “fluttering and dancing in the breeze,” and “tossing their heads in sprightly dance.” The waves in the bay, as well, dance and sparkle, and yet the daffodils are more captivating even than the ocean, multitudinous as they are, as the stars in the sky. In Wordsworth’s poem nature is powerful and inviting, exhibiting forces of healing in the form of bright colors and gentle vibes. It is recounted from a comfortable, safe perspective; when the speaker is resting on his safe, warm couch, the memories of his solo walk along the bay …flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. These recollections serve as a comfort and pleasure to him, even when he is comfortable in a pleasant environment. Such was the power of the scene. De la Mare’s poem also presents nature as a powerful force, but an impersonal, destructive one. The poem is told from the perspective of sea birds in a storm, and the vocabulary is a violent as Wordsworth’s is serene: “And the wind rose, and the sea rose,/To the angry billows’ roar,” and in the second verse, And the yeasty surf curdled over the sands, The gaunt grey rocks between; And the tempest raved, and the lightning’s fire Struck blue on the spindrift hoar – Here the birds have lost control, and the storm is forcing them onto the shore, waves tossing and wind howling, a wholly different scene than Wordsworth’s happy spring day. Even in the end, when the storm breaks and the sun comes out, we see the lingering effects of the chaos – “the bright green headlands shone/As they’d never shone before,” and yet within this setting we have vast hoards of sea birds breaking this lovely post-storm calm with their “screeching, scolding, [and] scrabbling.” But in the final two lines of the poem, we see also “A snowy, silent, sun-washed drift/Of sea-birds on the shore.” And herein lies the true destruction: while a whole host of birds are tumbling through the sky, another host of birds has been killed by the violence of the storm. Both poems depict the unpredictability of nature, and yet because Wordsworth’s poem is from the point of view of a man, on a bright spring day, his poem is more domestic and simple than that of de la Mare. The latter presents the point of view of nature itself, only to switch to a third person, withdrawn perspective at the end of the poem; humans have no role in the events that unfold. Any humans that exist in the area would have been safely indoors during the storm, away from any danger. We therefore get the rawness of nature where we would normally escape it for our fires and our beds; here is the flip-side of natural beauty – natural destruction. This poem is no walk in the garden, but a story of the wildness of natural processes. I NEED HELP WRITING THIS IN MY OWN WORDS PLEASE HELP
