Read the excerpts from different sections “The Scarlet Ibis.” Although Doodle learned to crawl, he showed no signs of walking, but he wasn’t idle. He talked so much that we all quit listening to what he said. It was about this time that Daddy built him a go-cart and I had to pull him around. At first I just paraded him up and down the piazza, but then he started crying to be taken out into the yard and it ended up by my having to lug him wherever I went. If I so much as picked up my cap, he’d start crying to go with me and Mama would call from wherever she was, “Take Doodle with you.” *** He’d nod his head, and I’d say, “Well, if you don’t keep trying, you’ll never learn.” Then I’d paint for him a picture of us as old men, white-haired, him with a long white beard and me still pulling him around in the go-cart. This never failed to make him try again. Based on these excerpts, what best describes the symbol of the go-cart within the story? It changes from a symbol of youth to a symbol of old age. It changes from a symbol of success to a symbol of failure. It changes from a symbol of hope to a symbol of desperation. It changes from a symbol of freedom to a symbol of captivity.

Which lines from Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address appeal to pathos? Check all that apply. [A]ll thoughts were anxiously directed to an impending civil war. All dreaded it, all sought to avert it.

Which excerpt from “The Man to Send Rain Clouds” best illustrates how Leon’s beliefs differ from those of Father Paul? “Well, I’m glad you understand. I hope I’ll be seeing you at Mass this week—we missed you last Sunday. See if you can get old Teofilo to come with you.” The priest smiled and waved at them as they drove away. Leon walked toward the old man’s bed. The red plaid shawl had been shaken and spread carefully over the bed, and a new brown flannel shirt and pair of stiff new Levi’s were arranged neatly beside the pillow. It was noontime now because the church bells rang the Angelus. They ate the beans with hot bread, and nobody said anything until after Teresa poured the coffee. Leon turned to look up at the high blue mountains in the deep snow that reflected a faint red light from the west. He felt good because it was finished, and he was happy about the sprinkling of the holy water; now the old man could send them big thunderclouds for sure.

[ad_1]

Answer:

The correct answer is that this passage makes part of an Adventure.

Explanation:

The reason comes from knowing the different genres and styles of writing fiction and also taking into account the way that the situation is being narrated. In this passage, the writer is telling us about a woman, Danielle, who, after a terrible accident is found herself alone, in a really dangerous situation, in an even more dangerous and mysterious place, which she must survive in order to carry out her final goal, which is to deliver justice to those who caused the crash and the death of her fellow passengers. The fact that the passage itself narrates the terrible happenings, bust most of all, the difficult circumstances that Danielle must face for survival, shows that the author wants us to almost get into this adventure of survival with the character and understand how difficult this will be for her. These are all characteristics of the Adventure genre in literature.

Explanation:

You should capitalize words such as Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Grandmother, Son, Daughter when they are used in place of the person’s name. What is more, you should not capitalize them when they follow possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, our). In the sentence above, Mother is capitalized because it is not preceded by any pronoun, while brother is not because it follows the possessive pronoun my.

Xoxoxo love this game today is a good day lol I hope I get to the answer lol Thanks

[ad_1]

Answer::

Average rate of change(A(x)) of f(x) over the interval [a, b] is given by:

A(x) = frac{f(b)-f(a)}{b-a}

As per the statement:

Given :

f(x) = x+4 over the interval [4, 5]

At x = 4

f(4) = 8

at x = 5

f(5) = 9

Using the above formula: we have;

A_1(x) = frac{f(5)-f(4)}{5-4} = frac{9-8}{1} = frac{1}{1} = 1

Similarly for :

f(x) = 3x-7 over the interval [-3, 7]

at x = -3

f(-3) = -16

At x = 7:

f(7) = 14

then;

A_2(x) = frac{f(7)-f(-3)}{7-(-3)} = frac{14+16}{10} = frac{30}{10} = 3

For:

f(x) = 9x + 1 over the interval [-5, -2]

At x = -5

f(-5) = -44

At x = -2

f(-2) = -17

then;

A_3(x) = frac{f(-2)-f(-5)}{-2-(-5)} = frac{-17+44}{3} = frac{27}{3} =9

For:

f(x) = 2x + 9 over the interval [1, 2]

At x = 1

f(1) = 11

At x =2

f(2)= 13

then;

A_4(x) = frac{f(2)-f(1)}{2-1} = frac{13-11}{1} = frac{2}{1} =2

We have to Arrange these functions from the least to the greatest value based on the average rate of change in the specified interval.

A_1 < A_4< A_2<A_3

1< 2< 3< 9

⇒x+4 < 2x + 9 <  3x-7 < 9x + 1

Therefore, the least to the greatest value based on the average rate of change in the specified interval is:

f(x) = x+4, f(x) = 2x+9, f(x) = 3x-7, f(x) = 9x+1,

1 D. You can donate at any age.

In united states, there is no laws/regulation that prohibit you form donating to charitable organizations. These action would be considered as an act of elevating social problems that are faced by other people in society. The only legal risks can only occurs if you somehow use the charity as a method to disguise your tax payment.

2 false

You can make a donation to non-profits anytime you want. But, to ensure that your donation does not go to waste, you need to conduct a little research on the non-profit organization. Make sure that they had proof of their work and not just around to steal your hard earned money.

3. C.Fortune 500 company.

The only difference between the two is where the sense of achievement come from. Working for fortune 500 company would definitely give more advantage in financial gain. But, working for non-profit would help you if you seek satisfaction in improving the wellness of others.

4 false

Each non-profit usually receive all forms of donation as long as the donation is relevant to their causes. For example, if the non-profit is established to help poor kids in Africa in their survival, materials such as foods, clothes, toys, books, or medicines would be accepted.

5. true

Non-profit organizations still pay tax on their income. But the rate usually would be significantly lower compared to other form of organizations. This happen because the government exempted non-profit organization from having to pay sales tax and property taxes from their operation.

6. D. $300 billion.

From united states alone, it is estimated that more than 390 billion dollar is given to charities each year.This number come from the combination of the contribution from Corporate’s Social responsibilities and the donations given by non-profit and individuals donators.

7. B. Not-for-profit” means the money that an organization earns goes to the organization to help it achieve its purpose rather than going to stockholders.

Not for profit organization usually established under a specific cause (such as hunger, environmental problems, etc). In for profit organization, the money form the operation would all be given to the shareholders. In non-profit organizations, the money from the operation would be allocated to fix the problems related to their cause.

8. C.20 – 50

People who donate the most to charities tend to be the people who are still in productive age. these people had higher amount of average income compared to other age groups. Because of this, they are the most likely to have more money on their reserve after fulfilling all of their consumptions.

9. A. .Improve your health, improve your self-confidence and help you become more satisfied with your life.

Studies shown that donating to charities contribute the reduction of stress which might lead to improvements to your health. The sense of self-satisfaction that come from charities would improve your self-confidence due to the perception that you’ve done good for others.

10. A.You may be able to write off your donation on your taxes.

Since they are considered as an act that had positive benefits to society, most governments in the world would consider charities that you’ve given as a tax write-off. This would be an upside for those who are genuinely willing to help. But on the down-side,  many people or corporations use this situation to manipulate their tax payments

Song: To Celia by Ben Jonson Drink to me only with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine; Or leave a kiss but in the cup, And I’ll not look for wine.

I sent thee late a rosy wreath, Not so much honouring thee As giving it a hope, that there It could not withered be. But thou thereon didst only breathe, And sent’st it back to me; Since when it grows, and smells, I swear, Not of itself, but thee.

“The Raven” is a poem written by the American writer Edgar Allan Poe. It was first published in January 1845. The poem is often well-known for its musicality, stylized language, and supernatural atmosphere. It tells of a talking raven’s mysterious visit to a troubled lover, sketching the man’s fall into madness. The lover, often identified as being a student, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. The raven seems to further distress the protagonist with its constant repetition of the word “Nevermore”. The poem makes use of folk, mythological, religious, and classical references. In his Poem The Raven, like in most of his work, Poe depicts horror and a sense of schizophrenia, but his short story deals primarily with the psychology of guilt.

In the first two stanzas of “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe, the author reveals important information about the speaker. The speaker is reading so late at night because:

He is trying to find relief from his sorrow”

Here we have the evidence from the poem for such an answer:

“Eagerly I wished the morrow;—vainly I had sought to borrow

 From my books surcease of sorrow—sorrow for the lost Lenore—”
