## How does this text feature enhance the information provided in the book? A. It connects the book’s central ideas about the design of the bicycle. B. It offers examples of improvements that were made to the bicycle. C. It provides insight about the significance of the bicycle to women. D. It emphasizes the widespread popularity of bicycles across all age groups.

The book “Wheels of Change” by Sue Macy seeks to show the reader the true meaning and importance that being able to ride a bicicle had to women of the nineteenth century.

Macy explains that women were imprisoned by law, social conventions, and even by their clothing. They were controlled by the men in their lives in every aspect.

So, for them, a bike was not just one more device, like it was for men. For women, being able to ride a bike was a representation of freedom.

## Which sentences highlight a unilateral contract? Monique goes to a supermarket and picks up a shampoo. She then goes to the counter and pays for the shampoo. John offers a ride back home to Jack in exchange for his favorite music DVD for a day. Jack then gives John the DVD he wanted. Harriet and Lauren sign a written contract for selling a house.

The answer is “John offers a ride back home to Jack in exchange for his favorite music DVD for a day.”

A unilateral contract is an agreement made by an offer than must be acknowledged by execution.

In a unilateral contract, there is an express offer that installment is made just by a gathering’s execution. Another case of a one-sided contract is a reward or a challenge.

In a unilateral contract, the offeror may repudiate the offer before the offeree’s execution starts. Normally the renouncement should be express.

Like contract law when all is said in done, explicit rules on one-sided contracts are represented by state laws, instead of government laws.

## Donna the trainer has two solo workout plans that she offers her clients: Plan A and Plan B. Each client does either one or the other (not both). On Wednesday there were 5 clients who did Plan A and 6 who did Plan B. On Thursday there were 3 clients who did Plan A and 2 who did Plan B. Donna trained her Wednesday clients for a total of 12 hours and her Thursday clients for a total of 6 hours. How long does each of the workout plans last? LengthofeachPlanAworkout:hour(s) LengthofeachPlanBworkout:hour(s)

X=hours of plan A
y=hours of plan B

wed: 5x+6y=12
thu: 3x+2y=6

so
5x+6y=12 and
3x+2y=6
we can eliminate y’s by multiplying 2nd equation by -3 and adding to first equation

-9x-6y=-18
5x+6y=12 +
-4x+0y=-6

-4x=-6
divid both sides by -4
x=-6/-4
x=3/2
x=1.5

sub back

3x+2y=6
3(1.5)+2y=6
4.5+2y=6
2y=1.5
y=0.75

Plan A=1.5 hours
Plan B=0.75 hours

## Sonya has just finished a large birthday dinner. when the waiter offers to give her a complementary birthday dessert, she explains that she is not feeling hungry at the moment. this is likely because her:

However, they also point out that it’s OK to have an unusual kind of family structure. On One Tree Hill, for example, Lucas is being raised by a single mom, and he has a close relationship with his uncle, but his dad isn’t completely out of the picture. On a teen show such as iCarly, on Nick, Carly’s older brother plays the role of guardian, because her dad is in the Air Force. Her mom is never really spoken of.

2. I do feel that most of the portrayal of family is accurate, on TV. Modern shows have steered away from the conventional “Mom, Dad, 2.5 kids plus dog” formula, which is accurate, because not all TV watchers are fortunate enough to have that kind of situation. See above answer for specific examples.

3. I think that a definite negative theme in today’s modern shows, revolve around views on alcohol and drugs. Obviously everyone is entitled to their own views, but more often than not, after a character drinks, or does something they shouldn’t, they panic about what their parents will do once they find out. This panic may lead them to increasingly dangerous situations. For example, in OTH, Nathan is drinking, and then goes out to drive his girlfriend’s car. When he crashes it into another car, he realizes the trouble he is in, and leaves the scene of the accident; thus potentially getting him in even more trouble. I realize that TV is in no way an accurate depiction of all life aspects, and it is “only TV”, but I think Nathan should have faced the consequences right away, because by running from the scene, he only put himself in danger of being caught, or arrested. Again, though, I’m reading too much into it.

## Which is not an appropriate thesis for an essay comparing two texts about poverty in the United States? Garcia’s reliance on personal stories makes her argument less convincing than Engle’s. Engle combines testimony from social workers with economic statistics that date back to the 1920s to craft a more convincing argument than the one Garcia offers. Garcia and Engle are both experienced scholars who write about poverty and race in the United States. Although both Garcia and Engle agree that hunger in the United States has generally declined since the beginning of the twentieth century, Garcia’s use of personal stories makes for a more interesting and more readable article.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

## A large four-year college typically offers all of the following except: A. very cheap tuition. B. a dynamic campus life. C. professors who are distinguished in their fields. D. an athletic program.

Answer:Leo Tolstoy wrote the novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich to criticize the emerging middle class of modern Russia in the nineteenth century. Ivan Ilyich, his family, and his friends are part of this budding middle class. Tolstoy’s aim in writing this novella was to criticize the thoughts and the approach of middle class people toward their families, their jobs, and society. He used the life of Ivan Ilyich to demonstrate all the aspects of the middle class that he believed were wrong. Tolstoy portrays Ivan Ilyich as a man whose life decisions are based on social acceptance. He chooses his friends and even his wife based on their social standing. When he starts to find his family life unpleasant because of his wife’s constant nagging, he limits his interactions with the whole family. Instead, he seeks comfort in his work. He assumes a formal relationship with his family members, particularly his wife. This change in his feelings and attitude toward his family does not seem strange to him. On the contrary, getting away from his family becomes his life goal:

This aloofness might have grieved Ivan Ilyich had he considered that it ought not to exist, but he now regarded the position as normal, and even made it the goal at which he aimed in family life.

Tolstoy deplored the middle-class habit of maintaining distance with family members in private but keeping up appearances of closeness for the public. Tolstoy shows his character Ivan Ilyich making the effort to maintain this detachment from his family members while ensuring that his family appears on the outside to be a regular and happy family. Even when he has to be at home with his family, he makes sure that they have guests. That way, he can avoid confrontations or meaningful discussions with his family:

His aim was to free himself more and more from those unpleasantnesses and to give them a semblance of harmlessness and propriety. He attained this by spending less and less time with his family, and when obliged to be at home he tried to safeguard his position by the presence of outsiders.

Ilyich’s work soon becomes an obsession, and everything else, including his family is secondary to his job:

The chief thing however was that he had his official duties. The whole interest of his life now centered in the official world and that interest absorbed him.

Through Ivan Ilyich, Tolstoy portrayed a class of people who make determined efforts to escape human contact and suffering by seemingly living in denial. They are people who run away from love and relationships, and they are unwilling to reflect on their lives. Instead, they choose to exist in their self-centered world until they are jolted into reality. In Ivan Ilyich’s case, this jolt comes in the form of his illness in chapter 4.

Tolstoy would not have agreed with Ivan Ilyich’s priorities. Unlike Ivan, Tolstoy looked inward throughout his adult life. He searched for a deeper meaning and purpose, especially in regard to his political and religious ideals. While those ideals eventually caused Tolstoy to avoid his wife, he generally had a close relationship with his family. By all accounts, he seemed very much a man who loved and cherished his wife and their 10 children. While Tolstoy was dedicated to his writing, his family seemed to inspire him, rather than get in the way of his literary genius. His wife was involved in his work, having transcribed most of his writing. Even Tolstoy’s last days were spent on a pilgrimage that he embarked on with his youngest daughter.

## How many different pizzas can be ordered if the restaurant offers 15 different toppings and there is no limit to the number of toppings on the pizza?

Option C – BD=76 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : You are designing a diamond-shaped kite. you know that AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm, and AC = 84.8 cm.

To find : How long BD should it be?

Solution :

First we draw a rough diagram.

The given sides were AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm and AC = 84.8 cm.

According to properties of kite

Two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent.

DC=BC=72 cm

The diagonals are perpendicular.

So, AC ⊥ BD

Let O be the point where diagonal intersect let let the partition be x and y.

AC= AO+OC

AC=   …….[1]

Perpendicular bisect the diagonal BD into equal parts let it be z.

BD=BO+OD

BD=z+z

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔAOD

where H=AD=44.8 ,P= AO=x , B=OD=z

………[2]

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔCOD

where H=DC=72 ,P= OC=y , B=OD=z

…………[3]

Subtract [2] and [3]

……….[4]

Add equation [1] and [4], to get values of x and y

Substitute x in [1]

Substitute value of x in equation [2], to get z

We know, BD=z+z

BD= 38.06+38.06

BD= 76.12

Nearest to whole number BD=76 cm

Therefore, Option c – BD=76 cm is correct.

## __________ theory suggests that cmc offers a diminished sense of psychological closeness or immediacy because it removes most nonverbal cues.

D = 4

As it is 4NaCl, it means that there are four molecules of sodium chloride so one molecule of sodium chloride contain 1 chlorine atom so 4 molecules contain 4 molecules of chlorine.

B = law of conservation of mass

As it has the same amount of atoms of each element on both sides of reaction, so it means the mass on the both sides of equation is same or conserved. So, it will obey law of conservation of mass.

D = 5

This is according to the law of conservation of mass. So, if at the start of reaction we have 5 grams of substrate we will get the 5 grams of product. Because mass remain conserved during a reaction.

Correct option is C.

C = 3

In the given reaction, there should be 3 molecules of water in product to balance the equation on both sides. So, the correct option is C.

Correct option is C.

C = oxygen

In the above given options only oxygen is element. All the other are not elements except Oxygen. So, the correct option is C.

Correct option is D.

D = apple juice

Homogeneous mixture is the mixture that has the same composition through out the mixture. So, in the given options only apple juice is the homogeneous mixture.

Correct option is B.

B = It is uniform in composition.

The significant properties of a homogeneous mixture is that it has the same chemical composition throughout the mixture. It is uniform in composition. So, option C is correct.

A = salt

In a solution of salt and water, salt is solute. Solute is the minor component of solution that dissolve in solvent.

Correct option is B

B = compound

Compound is the substance made of the atoms of different elements combined together in definite proportions. So, the pure substance from the following is B.

Correct option is A

A = heterogeneous mixtures

The substance that is not uniform in appearance and each part of the mixture contains a combination of different ingredients in different ratios. so this is definitely a heterogeneous mixture.

Correct option is D.

All of the above are compounds except chocolate chip coolies. Salt, sugar, water are compounds but chocolate chip cookies.

Correct option is D

D = brewed tea

All of the above are homogeneous mixture except Saline solution. Brewed tea is not a homogeneous mixture but a heterogeneous solution.

Correct option is B.

B = A compound is a pure substance, but a mixture is not.

The one of the difference between a compound and mixture is a compound is a pure substance, but a mixture is not. So, the correct option is B
