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”

Read the following dialogue: Mark: I deserve a raise! Boss: Why do you deserve a raise? Mark: Both Rachel and Soledad make three dollars more an hour than I do, so I should make the same as they do. Boss: Both Rachel and Soledad have worked here longer than you and always receive top evaluations. Mark: Well, then I deserve a raise because I have a wife and two children at home, one of whom has a very expensive medical condition. Boss: No. Unfortunately, Mark's argument lacks proof that he deserves a raise. In fact, Mark is often late and rarely completes his work on time. But Mark still really needs a raise. Mark just learned that his boss loves the Boston Red Sox and hates the New York Yankees. How can Mark use this knowledge and alter his argument to convince his boss to give him a raise?

Boss: Both Rachel and Soledad have worked here longer than you and always receive top evaluations. Mark: Well, then I deserve a raise because I have a wife and two children at home, one of whom has a very expensive medical condition. Boss: No. Identify at least one logical fallacy Mark presents to his boss. Explain why his arguments do not persuade his boss to give him a raise.


Explanation:

One logical fallacy that Mark makes to hi boss is that He has two children at home and one of the children is suffering from serious medical conditions where Mark has to spend more money on his treatment. This is one wrong move in support of his argument to raise his salary.

          Moreover Mark arguments to provide a raise is not persuasive  because his explanation does not have any logical reason as to why he deserves a raise. Merely because his colleagues, Rachel and Soledad earns more than Mark does not imply that Mark should also be paid equal or given a raise.

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

Read the excerpt from “The Most Dangerous Game.” “Nonsense,” laughed Rainsford. “This hot weather is making you soft, Whitney. Be a realist. The world is made up of two classes—the hunters and the huntees. Luckily, you and I are the hunters. Do you think we’ve passed that island yet?” Read the excerpt of Zaroff speaking from “The Most Dangerous Game.” “Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if needs be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure. I am strong. Why should I not use my gift? If I wish to hunt, why should I not? I hunt the sc*m of the earth—sailors from tr*mp ships—lascars, blacks, Chinese, whites, mongrels—a thoroughbred horse or hound is worth more than a score of them.” How do these excerpts show the difference between Rainsford and Zaroff? a) Rainsford believes that animals are inferior to humans and therefore deserve to be hunted, while Zaroff feels this way about other humans. b) Rainsford has a deep feelings and sympathy for the prey he hunts, while Zaroff has no feelings or sympathy for his prey at all. c) Rainsford believes that it is acceptable to hunt all things as long as they are weaker, while Zaroff hunts only human beings. d) Rainsford hunts for pure amusement, while Zaroff believes he is performing a service by hunting the “sc*m of the earth.”
