Then chance stepped in. In 1798, Napoleon went to Egypt to protect its trade interests. In addition to an army, he brought along Egyptian scholars who were charged with copying the inscriptions and studying the architecture. The following year, the French bolstered their defenses by rebuilding a fort in the town of Rosetta. In the midst of the fortification, the Rosetta Stone was discovered. Ironically, this large stone tablet was found not by one of the scholars but by a soldier. Luckily, he recognized that the inscriptions must have value. Militarily, Napoleon’s Egyptian campaign was a disaster—the British decimated the French navy—but historically, it was of long-lasting importance.

No, although some literature is, such as Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad or Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett. These types of works were most popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century. But, there are other types of literature that are fueled by the writer’s own life (i.e., Edgar Allan Poe who often wrote poems inspired by his late wife, Virginia Clemm, Sylvia Plath who wrote The Bell Jar based off of her own mental illness experience, and Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon who wrote the novel based off of her daughter.) The most popular literature is based on what the author is most passionate about. Whether it is politics, activism, romanticism, etc., as long as it is charged by a driving force, it is literature.

Holland analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of __ types of vocational interests in order to help people optimize career satisfaction.


Answer:

The total monthly payment for this mortgage is of $ 1285

Explanation:

The principal mortgage payment per month is of $980.

Interests per month are of $105.

Property tax per year is of 1% of the value of the house ($150,000), so it is of $1500 per year (150,000/100). Per month, property tax is of $125 (125×12: 1500).

Home insurance per year is of $360, which is $30 per month (30×12: 360).

PMI per month is of $45.

So, to know how much we have to pay per month we have to add every monthly value, and the resulting value will be the total monthly payment.

So: 980 + 105 + 125 + 30 + 45 = 1285

The total montly payment is of $1285

Country B is more at risk because it does not have natural resources. 2. Which of the following best describes a disadvantage of a representative democracy compared to a direct democracy? Elections are unnecessary because birth and political party determine the officials. Elected officials may not always act in the best interests of those they represent. People are able to vote directly on issues that they care about. Decision-making is often slower because more people are involved in making the decisions. 3. Which statement about officials found in various forms of government is least accurate? A confederation would likely have several states with powerful state senators. A parliamentary government would likely have a prime minister elected by the legislature. A unitary government would likely have several states with powerful state senators. A federation would likely have a president elected by the people.


Answer:

1- Country A is more at risk because it has fewer types of goods to attract new trade partners.

2- A disadvantage of a representative democracy compared to a direct democracy is that elected officials may not always act in the best interests of those they represent.

3- The least accurate statement is the one that says that a unitary government would likely have several states with powerful state senators.

Explanation:

1- If war breaks out near Country A and Country B, and Country A has a single resource economy while Country B has a diversified economy, Country A would be more at risk because as it only produces one resource, it would be more difficult for it to find new markets where to sell its production.

2- Representative democracy is often presented as the most efficient form of democracy possible in mass societies, arguing that it allows an effective decision by a sufficiently small number of people in the name of the greatest number. The efficiency of the service can be judged based on the metrics of profitability and efficiency over time. Representatives who vote on behalf of the people allow a monetary benefit, since the use of polling stations, vote counters, etc. is reduced. The government is generally responsible for paying the salaries of the representatives and would have to cover the substantial cost of a democracy. Representative democracy has been conceptually associated with historically instantiated by the political system known as “representative government,” which was born in the eighteenth century with the French and American revolutions. It is a system in which people choose their legislators (representatives), who are then responsible to them for their activity within the government.

3- A unitary government is a form of government where power is concentrated and there is a single center of power that extends its action throughout the territory of the respective nation through its agents and local authorities, delegates of that same central power. A unitary government is the opposite of a federal government.

The correct answer is “Early airships such as zeppelins were filled with hydrogen, but today’s blimps use helium instead”.

Explanation:

A compound sentence refers to a type of sentence that includes two or more ideas of the same importance link one coordinating conjunction such as and, or, but, so. This implies in the case of combining two or more sentence to create a compound sentence any of the conjunctions previously mention need to be included. Besides this, because the sentences combined are “Early airships such as zeppelins were filled with hydrogen” and “Today’s blimps use helium instead”, the most correct way is to include first the sentence “Early airships..” and then the sentence “Today’s blimps use helium instead” as the word “instead” makes reference to the first sentence.

This implies, the correct way of combining this sentence is “Early airships such as zeppelins were filled with hydrogen, but today’s blimps use helium instead”, because in this the correct order of the sentences have been preserved and also the conjunction “but” has been added which creates a compound sentence and also shows the contrast between the materials used in zeppelins and blimps.
