## Which lines by Emily Dickinson are an example of metaphor? A. We outgrow love like other things And put it in the drawer, B. Till it an antique fashion shows Like costumes grandsires wore. C. Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, D. I’ve heard it in the chillest land, And on the strangest sea;

The line by Emily Dickinson that are an example of metaphor is option C.

Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul,

A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes an object or action in a way that isn’t literally true, but helps explain an idea or make a comparison. A metaphor states that one thing is another thing. The different between the metaphor and the similes, is that the latter employs words such as “like” and “as” in order to create a comparison.

Then there’s a pair of us! Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know! How dreary – to be – Somebody! How public – like a Frog – To tell one’s name – the livelong June – To an admiring Bog! The use of the phrase admiring Bog reveals the poet thinks that being well known is a. unpleasant because everyone pays attention to what you do b. challenging because it can be hard to know everyone well c. nice because people want to be with you and help you d. rewarding because others look up to you as an example

Explanation: In “I’m Nobody! Who are you?”, by Emily Dickinson, the use of the phrase “admiring Bog”, reveals the poet thinks that being well known is unpleasant because everyone pays attention to what you do. The poet claims she is nobody and that makes her excited. She doesn’t need the approval of others. She enjoys living as “nobody” and finds dreadful to be considered as somebody to pay attention to.

In Spanish, the preterite tense (el pretérito) is used to describe actions completed at a point in the past. So the Spanish preterite is not used to describe regular or continuous actions in the past with no specific beginning or end. In that case, we use the imperfect. Therefore, we use the preterite to talk about completed actions in the past. So, it is used to talk about beginnings and ends, things that occurred on specific dates or days, at specific times or during specific time periods, and events in a sequence. There are two forms in this verbal tense, namely: Regular Imperfect Forms and Irregular Imperfect Forms.

On the other hand, the imperfect tense (el imperfecto) is used to describe past habitual actions or to talk about what someone was doing when they were interrupted by something else. In general, the imperfect is used to talk about past actions, conditions, or events that occurred regularly or frequently or that were in progress in a moment in the past. It is also used to tell time, talk about dates, give a person’s age, and describe features, conditions, and feelings in the past. As in the preterite tense, there are two forms in this verbal tense, namely: Regular Imperfect Forms and Irregular Imperfect Forms.

The regular verb forms for both the preterite and the imperfect are given in three ways, that is, for ar, er and ir endings. So the conjugation will depend on the pronoun of the sentence and the verb ending. On the other hand, the irregular verb forms don’t have a defined structure.

## Emily wants to find out about training and reads the leaflet below. She notices an error in grammar in the first paragraph of the text. Find the error and replace it with the correct verb form. Training your dog It is very important to train your dog. It keeps your dog’s mind active, and it help to build an understanding between you and your dog. Often, owners will shout at their dogs or even punish them when what is needed is training.

It is very important to train your dog. It keeps your dog’s mind active, and it help to build an understanding between you and your dog. Often, owners will shout at their dogs or even punish them when what is needed is training.

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.

yet been determined, it has been agreed by researchers that a combination or
interaction of genes, neurobiology, upbringing, life history, and maturity can
result in bipolar disorders.

## Which response best completes the conversations? Violeta: Emily, ¿qué transporte público es el que más te gustó? Emily: _______________________

1)  Marta se levanta y después se viste. In order to fill in the correct word you just have to know the translation of each one. With the word ‘después’ the complete sentence makes sense, as it is translated as “ Marta gets up and then gets dressed.”
antes – before
durante – during

2) Alfonso se ducha en el gimnasio. Alfonso takes shower in the gym.  Here you can see the verbs that are not similar semantically at all, so you just need to pick the one which logically suits best. Since se duerme- falls asleep and se acuesta-lies down, then se ducha is the answer.

3) Carla se cepilla el pelo. Carla brushes her hair. The verb  ‘se cepilla which’ is ‘to brush’ is the best one to use with the direct object ‘hair’. Other options contain actions which cannot be performed upon object in a sentence. (‘to make up’ and ‘to wake up’)
4) Por la mañana me levanto, me ducho y por último. Here you have to choose the correct adverb of time again. As you can see, the speaker is telling us about his schedule, naming actions in a set order. Since there is a gap before the last action, you have to put ‘por último’ which is ‘finally’ to complete the sentence. In the morning I get up, take a shower and finally dress up.
5) Cuando salgo de la ducha, me pongo las pantuflas —> When I get out of the shower, I put on the slippers. There you have a situation, so you have to pick an object that fits in it. Of course, ‘las pantuflas’ is the only suitable object regarding the context.

6). José se ducha por la noche. Joseph takes shower in the evening. Ducharse (in english is to take a shower, or to shower oneself) is a regular verb, and its form for third person singular in present tense is se ducha.
7). Mi hermana y yo nos levantarse a las siete de la mañana.  Me and my sister get up at seven in the morning. Now we have a plural pronoun (Mi hermana y yo = we) so the verb form in present tense is nos levantarse.
8).Yo me pongo los zapatos nuevos. I put on new shoes. The spanish verb ‘ poner’ means to put on or to wear. The pronoun of the sentence is the first person singular, so its present form is pongo.
9) .Mis padres nunca se enojan con mi hermana. → My parent never get angry with my sister. The verb enojarse is a regular verb which means to get angry, get upset. Here it is used with third person plural pronoun, so its present form changes into se enojan. Keep in mind that in you want to say ‘to anger or to make [someone]angry’, you have to use the non reflexive form enojar.
10) ¿ Tú te sientes bien? → Do you feel well? This question contains a verb that describes feelings, and in Spanish it can be quite tricky sometimes. For second person singular pronoun this verb in present is ‘ te sientes’. Pay attention! Here this verb is used intransitively with adjectives, if you want to use it  the sense of to feel, regretyou have to use non reflexive form  – sentir.
11) ¿Adónde ir tú después de la clase de español? In order to insert the correct verb you have to make sure that you translated it right (because this two verbs are completely different and you have to understand the context). This sentence means ‘Where did you go after the Spanish class?”. Therefore, we have to use the infinitive is “Ir” that translates as ‘to go’12) Marcos y Silvia erais novios por dos años. Marcos and Silvia were lovers for two years. The verb to be is needed here, and for spanish it is “ser”. But since it is a past tense, the form of this verb changes into  erais – as it is imperfect tense for second person pronoun in plural.

13) Yo fui al baño de la biblioteca. —> I went to the library restroom. There is a verb of direction, so it is ‘ir’. And since we are talking about the past tense of the first person singular, the verb form changes into ‘fui’.
14)
Usted fue el responsable, ¿verdad? The translation is : “You’re the responsible; aren’t you!?” The verb ‘to be’ is used to the infinitive is ‘ser’. With the second person singular this verb changes into ‘fue’.

15) 5. Nosotras fuimos a Argentina el año pasado –> “We went to Argentina last year”. Another example of direction verb ‘to go’, so  the infinitive is “Ir”. The verb form for first person plural in the past is fuimos.

A counterclaim, in my own words, is a rebuttle to any comments one might have against your Claim and one of it’s reasons.

So! in order to fit this into your dilemma, you’re going to want to ask yourself
“What might someone have to say against my reason? (Pick one)”

Then you should start the draft of your counter off by putting *If my readers where to question with “well what if___?” then i’d simply give them a reason / solution like—[COUNTER CLAIM]*

Now, onto my ideas for a good counter / rebuttle..

along the lines of; why stop the use of pesticides? They prevent produce waste. Simply put: “Remember the ultimate goal of having a honey bee farm, to harvest honey, not to kill off pests with detrimental pesticides.
So if investment into pesticides is so important to the extent of having to use such risky methods. Why not invest in a more beneficial method? Such as sheltering the bee’s with an insect proof structure? Or do away with the whole idea of outdoor honey farms, and make a systematic facility with flowers, bees, sunlight, etc.”

Just did that by simply asking myself those questions above, you got this.
And you have my permission to use this work if need be, but you’ve made it this far. Like you said & im sure of it as well after reading your work; you can finish this on your own. GL

## Which of the following is an example of a scenario that could benefit from Flash software? A. Emily would like to add a survey to her website so she can get feedback from visitors. B. Ethan would like to digitally store pictures to eventually upload to his website. C. Taylor would like to learn which colors would be most effective to use on her website. D. Jamie would like to test out different font sizes and styles to choose ones for her website.

The best option to answer the question is (C) she can use bright, contrasting colors and place a link to the index of summer clothing product pages in a noticeable location.

The other options are not the best avenue of action to take since she using black and white colors might not be the best way to attract the young adults who are looking for summer clothing – she should choose bright colors instead.

Writing a detailed article might be a good way to market her products if she links her clothing in the article, but since the option doesn’t mention her doing that, we should choose option (C) instead, since it directly states putting links that direct her visitors to summer clothing that her website offers.
