Which best describes the South Carolina convention in December of 1860?


Answer:

The Neolithic revolution was a profound change in the life of mankind, in which one moves from a nomadic to a sedentary lifestyle, and an economy of collection and hunting is changed to one of agricultural production.

The cultivation of cereals, especially rye, wheat and barley, characteristic of the Fertile Growing zone, became relevant. It is believed, however, that they were not the first plant species to grow. Legumes date a very old crop and also some fruit trees from Asia. The use of ferments and yeasts, responsible for the production of bread and dairy products and, consequently, of alcoholic beverages, is also recorded.

The first animal to enter the habitat of man was the dog. Sheep, bovine and caprine domestication constitute a fundamental pillar of production today. The domestication of the horse occurred at that time, in the area of ​​Central Asia, along with that of the camelids, which occurred in different sectors.

In the Neolithic there was a demographic increase with respect to the paliolithic, so society was divided between those who plowed the earth, those who harvested, those who polished the stones, the collectors, those who work the ceramics and used the looms – mostly women- , those who built homes and those who looked after livestock. It is necessary to mention the entry into surplus scene. From its appearance, it is possible to exchange goods. This first type of trade is called barter.

Read this line from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven”:Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December Which version most accurately displays the stressed syllables (shown in all capital letters) in this line of poetry? A.AH, DISTINCTLY, I remember, it was in THE BLEAK DECEMBER B.Ah, DIStincTLY I REmemBER it WAS in THE bleak DEcemBER C.AH, disTINCtly I reMEMber IT was IN the BLEAK DeCEMber D.Ah, distincTLY, I rememBER, it was in THE bleak DecemBER


The correct answer is C. AH, disTINCtly I reMEMber IT was IN the BLEAK DeCEMber.

Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, “The Raven,” is written in the trochaic octameter. Let us break down what that means:

1. trochaic – this refers to the meter of the poem, trochee. Trochee is the type of meter which consists of two syllables, where the first one is stressed (written in capital letters), and the second one is unstressed (written in lower letters), like in option C

2. octameter – this refers to the number of syllables within the entire line. Octa means eight, and one meter consists of two syllables, so if you multiply those two, you will get the exact number of syllables in one line, which is sixteen.

Dear Cousin Lulu,

I am glad that we are finally able to be in contact after so many years apart. I regret not leaving with you when you decided to run away up North. Things here have been a bit different from the last time you were here. After I was able to become free with time. In other words, I paid for my freedom. I learned how to read and write at a school. The school is only for former slaves who were able to become free and the teachers and former slaves that learned to read and write in the North.

I was able to find you by asking around. I was lettings others know of that I was looking for someone with your name who had moved to New York during the time that you left. After two years of searching, and sending letters to a few other Lulu’s I was able to find you. I even found another cousin of ours and we were planning on getting together in the upcoming month.

I hope I can see you soon!
-Sherlock Holmes
