Read the excerpt from “A Simple Way to Create Suspense”. For instance, heading toward a movie review program, I remember we asked: Who was the studio’s first choice for the Harry Callahan role in “Dirty Harry”? We knew most viewers would be intrigued. (What, Clint Eastwood wasn’t the first choice?) But—and this was the lesson—the success of the tactic didn’t depend on intrigue. Even viewers with no interest at all stuck around to find out. Humans are hard-wired. They need to know. Even viewers who knew the answer for sure stuck around, in order to be gratified. The gap was bridged, and the danger averted. (It was Frank Sinatra. You waited, right?) Which best describes this excerpt? The central idea of this excerpt is that Clint Eastwood was not the original choice for the Dirty Harry movie. The central idea of this excerpt is that intrigue is the most important way to create suspense. The author uses an analogy to compare his readers to the characters of a Hollywood movie.

2. Which sentence’s verbs express simultaneous events? I am pleased to have done well on the test. Having done well on the text, I will be pleased. I knew that I did well on the test. Having done well on the test, I am pleased.


The correct answer is C. I knew that I did well on the test

Explanation:

Simultaneous events means when two events happen at the same time, it means there is no a difference in time between one event and the other, this simultaneity in language is usually expressed in the tense used to express the action or event, in this way, if the same tense is used to express two actions it is more likely those actions are simultaneous, as different tenses would express an explicit difference in the time the actions occurred. In the case of option C. “I knew that I did well on the test”, both actions which are “I knew” and “I did” are in simple past, which make them simultaneous, also it is possible both actions occurred at the same time as both actions can be carried out by a person at the same time. Thus, the sentence that expresses simultaneous events is C. I knew that I did well on the test, as it is the only option in which both actions are in the same tense and these actions can occur simultaneously.

Which excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis” most foreshadows that the narrator will feel regret for something he has done to Doodle? But sometimes (like right now), as I sit in the cool, green-draped parlor, the grindstone begins to turn, and time with all its changes is ground away—and I remember Doodle. Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did, so I dragged him across the burning cotton field to share with him the only beauty I knew, Old Woman Swamp. There is within me (and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at times I was mean to Doodle. Once I had succeeded in teaching Doodle to walk, I began to believe in my own infallibility and I prepared a terrific development program for him, unknown to Mama and Daddy, of course.


Answer:

Gather references, and prepare your résumé.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.

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 🙂

Southern plantation owners in the colonial era could not depend on using indentured servants for labor because there was no reason for them to come to the colonies. there was an uncertain supply of workers. the workers knew they would never be free. the workers would not be able to become property owners.


Answer: Both Africans and whites worked as indentured servants, not as slaves.

Indentured servitude refers to a system of labour in which servants worked between four and seven years in exchange for passage, room and lodging. Poor Europeans entered into these contracts hoping to find a better life in the Americas. Although indentured servitude was similar to slavery, it was a lot less restrictive. When servants were released, they were often granted land, crops and cattle.

This system began in the decade following the establishment of Jamestown, and it remained a significant part of the colonies for the first few decades of their existence. Initially, Black Africans were treated as indentured servants as well. However, as their numbers started to grow, slave laws were passed, and Black people lost their freedom completely. This was a much more profitable way of acquiring cheap labour, which meant that indentured servitude declined and slave labour increased.

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..

If they we’re to question your claim… (your choice!) …
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 word best describes the author’s tone in this excerpt from “That Spot” by Jack London? I don’t think much of Stephen Mackaye any more, though I used to swear by him. I know that in those days I loved him more than my own brother. If ever I meet Stephen Mackaye again, I shall not be responsible for my actions. It passes beyond me that a man with whom I shared food and blanket, and with whom I mushed over the Chilcoot Trail, should turn out the way he did. I always sized Steve up as a square man, a kindly comrade, without an iota of anything vindictive or malicious in his nature. I shall never trust my judgment in men again. Why, I nursed that man through typhoid fever; we starved together on the headwaters of the Stewart; and he saved my life on the Little Salmon. And now, after the years we were together, all I can say of Stephen Mackaye is that he is the meanest man I ever knew. A:excited B:ironic C:indignant D:playful

I would like to give you my thoughts:  I would like to share my ideas and thoughts.

In the context, the verb to give means to share, and the noun thoughts, in plural form, means opinions, ideas ).

...on this organic gardening movement: on the latest news on organic gardening.

The movement mentioned can be described as the effort some people have been doing towards organic gardening, and since people in general are likely aware if it, it becomes “the latest news”.

Before beginning voice lessons, Justin already knew how to sing 1 piece, and he expects to learn 2 new pieces during each week of lessons. Write an equation that shows the relationship between the number of weeks x and the number of pieces learned y. Then Graph.

Answer:

Spencer and Jeremiah both are correct

Step-by-step explanation:

We have given an equation 6x-2 = -4x+2

In this case spencer and jeremiah both are correct whether we first subtract 6x from both sides or we add 4x to both sides will not lead to any incorrection we will get the same result after simplification from both the methods

If we subtract 6x from both sides we will get 6x-6x-2= -4x-6x+2 after simplification we will get -2 = -10x+2

After further simplification we will get x=4/10=2/5

And if we add 4x on both sides we will get  6x+4x-2= -4x+4x+2 after simplification we will get 10x -2 =2  which eventually gives the result

x=4/10=2/5

Therefore, Both are correct

Answer:

a. While a metaphor is limited in length, an extended metaphor is developed over the course of a poem.

Explanation:

In general, a metaphor is a figure of speech that asserts that one element (person, animal, thing, quality, event, etc.) is similar to another element that in reality, or literally speaking, are not related in any way. While a metaphor is limited in length, an extended metaphor is developed over the course of a poem or throughout a series of sentences in a paragraph

For example, “A dream itself is but a shadow” is a metaphor, its length is limited. And one example of a extended metaphor can be understood with the following poem “Hope is the Thing with Feathers” by Emily Dickinson:

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul,

And sings the tune – without words,

And never stops at all,

And the sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the store

That could abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chilliest land,

And on the strangest sea;

Yet, never, in extremity,

It asked a crumb of me.
