Answer:

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.

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.

In those days he really didn’t know what he was talking about; that is to say, he was a young jailkid all hung-up on the wonderful possibilities of becoming a real intellectual, and he liked to talk in the tone and using the words, but in a jumbled way, that he had heard from “real intellectuals.” — On the Road, Jack Kerouac Which type of diction best characterizes Kerouac’s style in this passage? A. clinched B.conformist C. formal D. informal


Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

When would you use the informal (sometimes called the colloquial) level of standard English usage? when applying for a job conversing with family conversing with friends conversing with a teacher presenting for class SELECT ALL THAT APPLY


Hey there!

A run-on sentence is a sentence that contains multiple ideas that could be split into multiple sentences but continues on without the use of transitions or punctuation. 

Notice in the last sentence I just typed that I used the word “but” to link two related ideas together. I could have split that sentence into two, but kept it a single sentence and used a transition since the idea would flow better that way. Run-on sentences don’t use a transition and just keep rambling on until an eventual stop. 

Let’s take a look at your answer choices:

“The concert started and the music was incredible.” Notice how the word “and” is used to link the ideas. This isn’t a run-on sentence. 

“Holidays always go by too quickly since I get those days off.” Again, “since” is used to link the two ideas together. This isn’t a run-on sentence, either. 

They danced for hours; they never felt remotely tired.” This is an example of a sentence that links two ideas together using punctuation. You could replace the semicolon with a period and the sentence would retain its sense and meaning. Since this is the purpose of semicolons, this isn’t a run-on sentence either. 

“Tomas was frustrated during class he forgot his book report.” There’s a word missing between these two ideas. Some sort of punctuation (a semicolon) or a transition (something like “since” or “because” would be good) is needed for this to make sense. 

Your answer will be D. 

Hope this helped you out! 🙂
