Read this paragraph from The Dark Game. It may seem surprising that no Confederate sympathizers took action against Van Lew, given her strong and public views on secession and slavery. Surely there were suspicions, especially among her upper-crust neighbors, but the matter never went beyond those suspicions. Historians have suggested that the secessionists were victims of their own cultural bias, believing that no aristocratic person, and certainly not a lady, would ever consider taking part in anything as impolite as spying. A true lady managed her servants, prepared parties and gatherings, and blindly supported her husband. Such attitudes worked in Van Lew’s favor, diverting suspicion from her. What central idea is implied in this paragraph? A-Elizabeth Van Lew did not follow the rules society set forth for ladies of her time and social class. B-Elizabeth Van Lew was a successful spy because society did not expect a lady to serve in that role. C-Elizabeth Van Lew was able to disguise her spying activities because she kept her views about the war to herself. D-Elizabeth Van Lew created for herself an untrue but believable cover story: she was a wealthy lady living in a fancy neighborhood.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

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.

Hope this helps

The equation of the car is given by the equation,

                          x(t) = 2.31 + 4.90t² – 0.10t⁶

If we are going to differentiate the equation in terms of x, we get the value for velocity.

                  dx/dt = 9.8t – 0.6t⁵

Calculate for the value of t when dx/dt = 0.

                 dx/dt = 0 = (9.8 – 0.6t⁴)(t)

The values of t from the equation is approximately equal to 0 and 2. 

If we substitute these values to the equation for displacement,

(0)   , x = 2.31 + 4.90(0²) – 0.1(0⁶) = 2.31

(2)    , x = 2.31 + 4.90(2²) – 0.1(2⁶) = 15.51

Thus, the positions at the instants where velocity is zero are 2.31 and 15.51 meters.

Answer:

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

 Not sure if this is a “Select all that apply” question, because most of these could work. However, I’m going to assume the answer is easy movement on people, products, and ideas.Improve transportation has allowed better import and exports, faster transportation cross country, even around the world. At the same time, the answer could be increase greenhouse gases and increase pollution, because they release toxic fumes through exhaust. So, if it’s a Select all that apply question, i would select those three.

Dear Mr. Truman,

First of all, I have a great deal of respect for you. It must have been hard to suddenly be plunged into presidency so quickly. I know that you were quickly informed of the Manhattan Project. It must have been hard to pick the option  of dropping the atom bombs on Japan. War is an ugly thing, and you had to quickly take leadership of the U.S. and decide the actions that America would take.

I completely agree with your actions of choosing to use the atomic bombs. Without it, America would have needed to invade the Japanese homeland, and the Japanese are fierce fighters. The invasion would have cost thousands of American lives. Thankfully, you made this sacrifice unnecessary by bombing two cities and patiently waiting for word of the Japanese surrender. That must have not been easy.

Whether you know it or not, you have made a huge difference on history. You are the man that was suddenly put into the highest office in the land and quickly adjusted, making sound decisions in the middle of war. We all appreciate your work for America.

                                                     Sincerely,

                                                             Janith Abernathy

You are giving five radii (1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 3 feet) but only two colors, so I do not know which radii are for colors blue and yellow.

I will explain the procedure in detail, and so you can apply it knowing the radii of each color.

The probability of heating any circle equales the ratio of its are and the area of the square board.

The area of the square board is 10feet * 10 feet = 100 ft^2.

The area of any circle is π*(r^2).

So you can make this table

Color      radius   area                  ratio of area of the circle
                                                     to area of the square board

blue        1.0     π(1^2) = 3.14            3.14 / 100 = 0.0314

yellow     1.5     π(1.5^2) = 7.07         7.07/ 100 = 0.0707

x             2.0     π(2^2) = 12.57          12.57/100 = 0.1257

y            2.5      π(2.5^2) = 19.63       19.53 / 100 = 0.1953

z            3.0      π(3^2) = 28.27          28.27 / 100 = 0.2827

Then you have to sum the ratios for the colors blue and yellow.

In the case shown in the table that is 0.0314 + 0.0707 = 0.1021

I realize that if I sum the ratios for the second and third circles in the table, the result is 0.0707 + 0.1257 = 0.1964, which is the option A of the list.

So if the blue and yellow circles are those with radii 1.5 and 2 the answer is the option A.

With that explanation you are able to find the probability requested.

The correct answer is D. Makes the reader excited about what will happen next.

Explanation:

The word suspense refers to a mental state in which people feel anxious, nervous, uncertain and expectant for what will happen next or how certain events will end, this means suspense relies on the lack of knowledge and certainty someone has about something.

In literature suspense is widely use to keep the readers attention and interest for continuing reading during a story this is usually created by the use of pauses in the text, the use of adjectives and words that transmit a nervous and anxious state and a specific organization of events in the story that let the reader know the truth just at the end of it.

In the case of the excerpt presented the author uses the thoughts of the character to create suspense by using first-person narration to explain how nervous the narrator is about the use of the drug which makes the creates an uneasy feeling in the reader as he does not know whether the character will use or not the drug. Considering the excerpt creates this anxiety and an expectand feeling is a good example of suspense as the reader feels excited about the actions that will happen next.

What is the term for a news story told without opinion or bias? A. Prejudiced B. Detailed C. Objective D. Direct

1. Use evidence from the play to show how Arthur Miller conveys one of the following themes:
1.         Fear and suspicion are infectious and can produce a mass hysteria that destroys public order and rationality.
2.         It is more noble to die with integrity than to live with compromised principles that harm others.

3.         The ideas of witchcraft and “the devil’s work” in The Crucible are extended metaphors for Communism. 

2. Act IV opens in a Salem jail cell. It is the day when Rebecca Nurse and John Proctor are to be hanged. Both have resisted confessing up to that point, but Rev. Hale – previously unseen at the court since Proctor’s arrest – is trying to encourage their confession. Even though he knows their confession would be a lie, he wants to save their lives. Rev. Parris is also trying to get them to confess, but that’s because he wants to save his own life: since the trials began, Parris has received some not-so-subtle threats to his life. To make matters worse, Abigail has fled, taking all of Parris’s money with her.

Since Proctor went to jail, over one hundred people have restored their lives by “confessing” to witchcraft, but the town is in shambles. There are orphans, cows wandering all over the place, and people bickering over who gets whose property.

Judge Hathorne and Danforth call upon Elizabeth, still imprisoned, to talk to her husband to see if she can get him to confess. When Elizabeth finally agrees to speak with Proctor (who has been in the dungeon, separated from the other accused), the married couple finally gets a few private moments alone in the courthouse. In these warm exchanges, Elizabeth says she will not judge what Proctor decides to do, and affirms that she believes he is a good man. While Elizabeth will not judge Proctor, she herself cannot confess to witchcraft, as it would be a lie.

Proctor asks for Elizabeth’s forgiveness, and she says he needs to forgive himself. Elizabeth also says she realizes she had been a “cold wife,” which might have driven him to sleep with Abigail. She asks him for forgiveness and says she has never known such goodness in all her life as his. At first, this gives Proctor the determination to live, and he confesses verbally to Danforth and Hathorne.

But Proctor cannot bring himself to sign the “confession.” Knowing that the confession will be pinned to the church door, for his sons and other community members to see, is too much for Proctor to bear. Moreover, he will not incriminate anyone else in the town as a witch. He believes it should be enough to confess verbally and to only incriminate himself. When the court refuses this, Proctor, deeply emotional, tears up the written confession and crumples it. Shocked, Rev. Hale and Rev. Parris plead with Elizabeth to talk sense into her husband, but she realizes that this is, at last, his moment of redemption: “He have his goodness now. God forbid I take it from him!” And so he goes to his death. The curtain falls as we hear the drum beat just before John Proctor is hanged.
