My grandfather, who lost his short-term memory sometime during the first Eisenhower Administration, calls me into his study because he wants to tell me the story he’s never told anybody before again. . . . My grandfather slams the door and motions me to the chair in front of his desk. I’ll be thirteen in two weeks. “There’s something I want to tell you, son,” he says. “Something I’ve never told anybody. You think you’re ready? You think you’ve got the gumption?” “I think so.” “Think so?” “I know so, sir. I know I’ve got the gumption.” . . . “It was late,” he says. “Someone knocked on my stateroom door. I leaped up. In those days I slept in uniform—shoes, too.” My grandfather smiles. His face is so perfectly round that his smile looks like a gash in a basketball. I smile back. “Don’t smile,” he says. “Just because I’m smiling, don’t assume I couldn’t kill you right now. Know that about a man.” Source: Orner, Peter. “The Raft.” The Atlantic Online. The Atlantic Monthly Company, Apr. 2000. Web. 10 May 2011. Which point of view does the text use?

Let C = cost to rent each chairLet T = cost to rent each table 4C + 8T = 732C + 3T = 28 Multiply the 2nd equation by (-2) and then add the equations together   4C + 8T = 73-4C – 6T = -56 2T = 17T = 17/2 = 8.5 Plug this in to the 1st equation to solve for C 4C + 8(17/2) = 734C + 68 = 734C = 5C = 5/4 = 1.25 So the cost to rent each chair is $1.25 and the cost to rent each table is $8.50

The error in grammar: it help

Correct verb form: it helps

Explanation:

In the simple present tense, third-person singular pronouns, like she, he and it, use conjugated verbs formed by the base form of a verb and the affix -s, -es, or -ies. For example: helps, thinks, cries, watches. In the excerpt provided, the error is in the verb help because it is not correctly conjugated for the pronoun it: it is missing an s at the end.

Correct answer choice is :

A) Accommodation

Explanation:

The method by which the eye improves optical power to keep a clear vision of an object as it moves near. Accommodation normally acts like a reflex, including as part of the accommodation-vergence reflex, but it can also be consciously managed. Mammals, birds, and snakes vary the visual power by converting the form of the elastic lens using the ciliary body. Fish and amphibians vary the pressure by increasing the distance within a rigid lens and the retina with tissues.
