Tan winces when she describes her mothers English as broken.

Tan winces because she considers her mother’s nonstandard English as her mother tongue. It is perfectly clear and natural to her. It is full of vivid descriptions, clear observations and imagery. Nonstandard English is close to her heart because it is the language that helped her to make sense of the world.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

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.

[ad_1]

1. The answer is “C”.

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.  

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

2. The answer is “A”.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

(Informational Response) Review the excerpt above. Answer the following question in a well-developed paragraph. How does the excerpt prepare the reader for the last line? What details and descriptions prepare the reader for the change in tone and mood in that final line? **Be sure to re-state the question in your topic sentence and use specific examples and details from the story to support your answers. Proofread your work before submitting. Chapter I, The Beginning of Things They were not railway children to begin with. I don’t suppose they had ever thought about railways except as a means of getting to Maskelyne and Cook’s, the Pantomime, Zoological Gardens, and Madame Tussaud’s. They were just ordinary suburban children, and they lived with their Father and Mother in an ordinary red-brick-fronted villa, with coloured glass in the front door, a tiled passage that was called a hall, a bath-room with hot and cold water, electric bells, French windows, and a good deal of white paint, and ‘every modern convenience’, as the house-agents say. There were three of them. Roberta was the eldest. Of course, Mothers never have favourites, but if their Mother HAD had a favourite, it might have been Roberta. Next came Peter, who wished to be an Engineer when he grew up; and the youngest was Phyllis, who meant extremely well. Mother did not spend all her time in paying dull calls to dull ladies, and sitting dully at home waiting for dull ladies to pay calls to her. She was almost always there, ready to play with the children, and read to them, and help them to do their home-lessons. Besides this she used to write stories for them while they were at school, and read them aloud after tea, and she always made up funny pieces of poetry for their birthdays and for other great occasions, such as the christening of the new kittens, or the refurnishing of the doll’s house, or the time when they were getting over the mumps. These three lucky children always had everything they needed: pretty clothes, good fires, a lovely nursery with heaps of toys, and a Mother Goose wall-paper. They had a kind and merry nursemaid, and a dog who was called James, and who was their very own. They also had a Father who was just perfect—never cross, never unjust, and always ready for a game—at least, if at any time he was NOT ready, he always had an excellent reason for it, and explained the reason to the children so interestingly and funnily that they felt sure he couldn’t help himself. You will think that they ought to have been very happy. And so they were, but they did not know HOW happy till the pretty life in the Red Villa was over and done with, and they had to live a very different life indeed. The dreadful change came quite suddenly.

HELP Read the selection below from Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift and complete the statement that follows. There is likewise another diversion which is only shown before the emperor and the empress, and first minister, upon particular occasions. The emperor lays on the table three fine silken threads of six inches long; one is purple, the other yellow, and the third white. These threads are proposed as prizes for those persons whom the emperor has a mind to distinguish by a peculiar mark of his favor. . . . The emperor holds a stick in his hands, both ends parallel to the horizon, while the candidates advancing, one by one, sometimes leap over the stick, sometimes creep under it, backward and forward, several times, according as the stick is advanced or depressed. All of the following excerpts from the passage above work together to illustrate exaggeration except, __________. A.“The emperor holds a stick in his hands, both ends parallel to the horizon . . .” B.“The emperor lays on the table three fine silken threads . . .” C.“There is likewise another diversion . . .” D.“These threads are proposed as prizes . . .”

The correct answer is C. “There is likewise another diversion . . .”

Explanation:

“Gulliver’s Travels” is a book written by Jonathan Swift that tells the story of Lemuel Gulliver as he travels to different remote regions and encounters particular customs and people. The main purpose of Swift this book was to explore human nature and criticize aspects related to society and politics of the 18th century, because of this in “Gulliver’s Travels” it is common to find satire, which is the use of exaggeration and ridicule to criticize the absurdity of some aspects of society to create social criticism. This can be seen in the excerpt from the question in which Gulliver witnesses the emperor, empress  and first ministers participate lead contest in which the prizes are silken threads and in which the emperor moves a stick horizontally while the candidates jump or avoid being hit by the stick, this contest or practice is mainly ridicule and exaggerated as the prizes and the process seem absurd.

This exaggeration is shown in the description given by the narrator during the process but at the beginning of the text when he is just introducing what he observed. Therefore,  the excerpt that does not show the exaggeration factor is “There is likewise another diversion . . .” as in this section of the text the narrator is just introducing the particular game or practice he observed but still does not refer to the ridicule and exaggerated elements in it.

Which part of this excerpt from President Barack Obama’s remarks on the Buffet rule uses the logical fallacy of false dilemma? [There are enough excuses for inaction in Washington.] We certainly don’t need more excuses.[ I’d just point out that the Buffett Rule is something that will get us moving in the right direction towards fairness, towards economic growth]. It will help us close our deficit and it’s a lot more specific than anything that the other side has proposed so far. And if Republican in Congress were truly concerned with deficits and debt, then I’m assuming they wouldn’t have just proposed to spend an additional $4.6 trillion on lower tax rates, [including an average tax cut of at least $150,000 for every millionaire in America]. {They want to go in the opposite direction.} They want to double down on some of the inequities that already exist in the tax code. If we’re going to keep giving somebody like me or some of the people in this room tax breaks that we don’t need and we can’t afford, then one of two things happens: [Either you’ve got to borrow more money to pay down a deeper deficit, or you’ve got to demand deeper sacrifices from the middle class, and you’ve got to cut investments that help us grow as an economy.]

Answer and Explanation:

 The part of the excerpt from president Barack Obama’s remarks on the Buffet rule that uses the logical fallacy of false dilemma is “Either you’ve got to borrow…or you’ve got to demand deeper sacrifices…” because he is addressing a complex issue  that might have several proposals  to solve it, however, he is reducing  it to only two options: “either-or”, which is a type of manipuation.

And thus for a time I was occupied by exploded systems, mingling, like an unadept, a thousand contradictory theories and floundering desperately in a very slough of multifarious knowledge, guided by an ardent imagination and childish reasoning, till an accident again changed the current of my ideas. When I was about fifteen years old we had retired to our house near Belrive, when we witnessed a most violent and terrible thunderstorm. It advanced from behind the mountains of Jura, and the thunder burst at once with frightful loudness from various quarters of the heavens. I remained, while the storm lasted, watching its progress with curiosity and delight. As I stood at the door, on a sudden I beheld a stream of fire issue from an old and beautiful oak which stood about twenty yards from our house; and so soon as the dazzling light vanished, the oak had disappeared, and nothing remained but a blasted stump. When we visited it the next morning, we found the tree shattered in a singular manner. It was not splintered by the shock, but entirely reduced to thin ribbons of wood. I never beheld anything so utterly destroyed. Before this I was not unacquainted with the more obvious laws of electricity. On this occasion a man of great research in natural philosophy was with us, and excited by this catastrophe, he entered on the explanation of a theory which he had formed on the subject of electricity and galvanism, which was at once new and astonishing to me. All that he said threw greatly into the shade Cornelius Agrippa, Albertus Magnus, and Paracelsus, the lords of my imagination; but by some fatality the overthrow of these men disinclined me to pursue my accustomed studies. It seemed to me as if nothing would or could ever be known. All that had so long engaged my attention suddenly grew despicable. By one of those caprices of the mind which we are perhaps most subject to in early youth, I at once gave up my former occupations, set down natural history and all its progeny as a deformed and abortive creation, and entertained the greatest disdain for a would-be science which could never even step within the threshold of real knowledge. In this mood of mind I betook myself to the mathematics and the branches of study appertaining to that science as being built upon secure foundations, and so worthy of my consideration. What is the effect of having Victor summarize the events of his childhood rather than telling them in detail? Readers can only guess at who Victor really is. Readers can see the events from more than one perspective. Readers cannot form an opinion without Victor’s interpretation. Readers see little to suggest Victor is guilty of any crime. I am not sure about this one but I think the answer is the third one

Describe the effects of divorce on children under five, school-aged children, and teenagers.

Answer:

The effects of divorce on children under five, school aged, and teenagers are totally different among them.

Explanation:

Firstly, I think children under five take divorce slightly because they are not all aware of the mother-father situation and they do not take it seriously. The most important for them at that age is to play and be children. Secondly, school aged take divorce a little bit more serious and they start to understand that parents are separated for a reason and they start asking questions all the time so, you as a parent need to be really smart on your answers so it does not affect your child’s feelings and the family environment and lastly, teenagers take divorce more aggressively because at that age they already know many things and they do not take it very well as in the other ages. For example, at this age if your parents get divorced, most teenagers find peace and calm on their friends and the world around them but not the family, they become rebellious and they believe they have the world in their hands so, I think it is a bad idea to get a divorce when your children become teenagers.

Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity skill and courage or as some might say level of foolishness. Which answer contains the BEST form of punctuation to use in the above sentence? A. Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control, the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity, skill, and courage, or as some might say level of foolishness. B. Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control, the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity, skill, and courage (or as some might say level of foolishness.) C. Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control, the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity skill and courage, or (as some might say) level of foolishness. D. Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control, the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity, skill, and courage or, as some might say, level of foolishness. Please select the best answer from the choices provided

D is the correct answer. the comma is needed after the first part of the sentence because “although extreme sports … control” is a dependent clause; it isn’t a full thought and you have to connect it to the rest of the sentence lest it be a fragment. “creativity,” “skill,” and “courage” require commas because they’re a series of items and you have to separate them for clarity. “as some might say” is between commas because it is something like an aside–you’re specifying that only SOME might deem it foolish.

The correct answer is B) The United States and Saudi Arabia grew closer diplomatically due to the oil industry in the area.

Saudi Arabia is the oldest ally of the United States in the Middle East. Their alliance can be traced back to 1933, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt and King Ibn Al-Saud accorded that Saudi Arabia would grant access to the US to Saudi oil sources, in exchange for American support to the Saudi regime.

Since 1953, Iran was also an important ally to the US. The monarchic dictatorship of the Shah Pahlavi counted with the favor of the US government since it worked like a brake for Iranian nationalism that seeks to nationalize the oil industry.

The Iranian Revolution in 1979 overthrown the Iranian monarchic government and established a Shia Islamic regime which was strongly anti-American, it nationalized the Iranian oil industry, and it wanted to expand its influence in the Middle East, disputing the position of Saudi Arabia. The new Iran became a natural enemy of Saudi Arabia, which is a Sunni kingdom and a regional leader, and also it became an enemy of the US.

For these reasons, the US and Saudi Arabia strengthened their diplomatic relations in order to face the Iranian threat.
