Which sentence from the essay best conveys the central idea of "Life Without Go Go Boots"? The rest of my life would be endurable if I had a pair of those white, calf-high confections with little black heels I learned what my mother had been trying to tell me all along: high fashion has the shelf life of potato salad. Style is mostly a matter of acting as if you know very well what you look like, thanks, and are just delighted about it I have a feeling the day might come when my daughter will beg to be a slave of conventional fashion.

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." Which words in the passage support King’s purpose of making listeners believe that they deserve equality? Check all that apply. “architects” “magnificent” “heir” “promise” “guaranteed” “concerned”

Brenda throws a dart at this square-shaped target: Part A: Is the probability of hitting the black circle inside the target closer to 0 or 1? Explain your answer. (5 points) Part B: Is the probability of hitting the white portion of the target closer to 0 or 1? Explain your answer. (5 points)

Either way.  The probability of hitting the circle is: P(C)=Area of circle divided by area of square P(W)=(area of square minus area of circle divided by area of square P(C)=(πr^2)/s^2 P(W)=(s^2-πr^2)/s^2 … Okay with know dimensions, r=1 (because r=d/2 and d=2 so r=1), s=11 we have: P(inside circle)=π/121  (≈0.0259  or …

Read this excerpt from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death” and answer the question that follows. Here the case was very different, as might have been expected from the duke’s love of the bizarre. The apartments were so irregularly disposed that the vision embraced but little more than one at a time. There was a sharp turn at every twenty or thirty yards, and at each turn a novel effect. To the right and left, in the middle of each wall, a tall and narrow Gothic window looked out upon a closed corridor which pursued the windings of the suite. These windows were of stained glass whose colour varied in accordance with the prevailing hue of the decorations of the chamber into which it opened. That at the eastern extremity was hung, for example in blue—and vividly blue were its windows. The second chamber was purple in its ornaments and tapestries, and here the panes were purple. The third was green throughout, and so were the casements. The fourth was furnished and lighted with orange—the fifth with white—the sixth with violet. The seventh apartment was closely shrouded in black velvet tapestries that hung all over the ceiling and down the walls, falling in heavy folds upon a carpet of the same material and hue. . . .And thus were produced a multitude of gaudy and fantastic appearances. What kind of writing does the excerpt represent?

Which excerpt from “Ain’t I a Woman?” best refutes the anti-suffragist idea that women were too fragile to handle the right to vote? Then that little man in black there, he says women can’t have as much rights as men, ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman! That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me!

Which sentences in this excerpt from Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich show Ivan Ilyich’s struggle with his life and his inability to let go of his past? For three whole days, during which time did not exist for him, he struggled in that black sack into which he was being thrust by an invisible, resistless force. He struggled as a man condemned to death struggles in the hands of the executioner, knowing that he cannot save himself. And every moment he felt that despite all his efforts he was drawing nearer and nearer to what terrified him. He felt that his agony was due to his being thrust into that black hole and still more to his not being able to get right into it. He was hindered from getting into it by his conviction that his life had been a good one. That very justification of his life held him fast and prevented his moving forward, and it caused him most torment of all. Suddenly some force struck him in the chest and side, making it still harder to breathe, and he fell through the hole and there at the bottom was a light. What had happened to him was like the sensation one sometimes experiences in a railway carriage when one thinks one is going backwards while one is really going forwards and suddenly becomes aware of the real direction. “Yes, it was not the right thing,” he said to himself, “but that’s no matter. It can be done. But what is the right thing? he asked himself, and suddenly grew quiet.
