Two presidential candidates in a televised debate were asked to state their qualifications. Candidate Barry Smithers replied, “I am well qualified for the position of president of this great land. I have worked hard to ensure that voters’ concerns were heard, and their voice was unanimous: We need more jobs and a cleaner environment. I have a vision that this nation can come together to accomplish these goals.” Candidate Joe O’Neal answered, “I have a record of experience that makes me well qualified for the role of president, as shown by my term as governor and my 20 years of service in the U.S. Senate. I voted for a bill that has created jobs by building and repairing public roads and buildings. I have voted to ensure cars were manufactured to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” Which of the candidates has presented a stronger demonstration of his or her qualifications, and why? Candidate Barry Smithers, because he listens to the concerns of voters, unlike his opponent Candidate Joe O’Neal, because he stated evidence of his service record, unlike his opponent Candidate Barry Smithers, because he says he has a vision for success that his opponent lacks Candidate Joe O’Neal, because he believes in creating more jobs, in contrast to his opponent
This answer is obviously not “prior knowledge” because we are not robots. The question is asking what are the ideas being presented around the words called. I also had this question in my english lesson,and the correct answer is context clues. Also the word context clues is pretty self explanatory.
btw I know this is a late answer
Why does the argument presented below NOT prove the point being argued? “You should not hire Leah. Last week, her boyfriend drove all the way from Oklahoma to Illinois to see her, and after he arrived, she broke up with him. Can you believe that? Why couldn’t she have done that over the phone or something? Instead, she waited until he spent all that time and money to go see her. You shouldn’t hire somebody who would treat someone else like that.” A. We should not feel pity for Leah. She decided to act cold and what goes around comes around. B. Leah should definitely be hired because she is the best person for the job. C. Leah’s relationship with her boyfriend does not have anything to do with her qualifications for the job. D. Leah’s boyfriend must have done something really bad for her to do that to him.
Which type of logical fallacy is being presented in the argument below? “Officer, I apologize for running through the tollbooth without paying. I really think you should let me go with a warning because I just got laid off from my job today. I was crying and I didn’t even see the tollbooth and if you give me a ticket, I don’t know how I’m going to pay for it now that I’m unemployed.” A. appeal to common opinion B. personal attack C. false dilemma D. appeal to pity
The first section of a sonata in which the theme is presented is commonly called the A. prodigy. B. recap. C. exposition. D. allegro.
Which of the following is an example of an adaptation? A a story presented as a play B a movie review C a story presented in original form D a literary analysis
Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner.
The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony.
The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world.
Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too.
Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way.
England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again.
Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it.
When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies.
This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists.
Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out.
Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.
1) Perpedicular lines form a 90° angle between them.
2) The product of the slopes of two any perpendicular lines is – 1.
So, from that basic knowledge you can analyze each option:
a.Lines s and t have slopes that are opposite reciprocals.
TRUE. Tha comes the number 2 basic condition for the perpendicular lines.
slope_1 * slope_2 = – 1 => slope_1 = – 1 / slope_2, which is what opposite reciprocals means.
b.Lines s and t have the same slope.
FALSE. We have already stated the the slopes are opposite reciprocals.
c.The product of the slopes of s and t is equal to -1
TRUE: that is one of the basic statements that you need to know and handle.
d.The lines have the same steepness.
FALSE: the slope is a measure of steepness, so they have different steepness.
e.The lines have different y intercepts.
FALSE: the y intercepts may be equal or different. For example y = x + 2 and y = -x + 2 are perpendicular and both have the same y intercept, 2.
f.The lines never intersect.
FALSE: perpendicular lines always intersept (in a 90° angle).
g.The intersection of s and t forms right angle.
TRUE: right angle = 90°.
h.If the slope of s is 6, the slope of t is -6
FALSE. – 6 is not the opposite reciprocal of 6. The opposite reciprocal of 6 is – 1/6.
So, the right choices are a, c and g.
I’m not 100% sure, but I think that the answer is: Complex Phrasing and Technical Terms. Considering the fact that Danica is speaking to people who are familiar with her topic, which would mean that Simple Words could be lost on her audience, who do not need to be treated as if they do not understand the topic, Simple Words would not be enough to appeal to them. Short Sentences may not be enough to get her point across about the topic, so going into detail may be best. As far as Slang, I believe that the audience would best benefit from the speech if Slang was not used, instead, Complex Phrasing may be best. That is why I believe that the answer is Complex Phrasing and Simple Words. (Hope my answer isn’t too long! I wanted to be short, but felt the need to explain my answer so you can see why I believe it is correct, because I did state that I’m not 100% certain it is correct… So I decided to show my train of thought. Hope it helped!)

Just a kind tip, you may want to use your enter key to your advantage next time you post a question to separate your passage, your question, and your possible answer choices. This just makes it easier for someone answering your question to understand what exactly you’re asking.
For starters, an element of fiction includes things like the plot, setting, conflicts, characters, and point of view of your selection/writing/passage/etc.
Taking a look at your answer problems,
– Characterization of Narrator: This involves directly or indirectly explaining the narrator’s character traits by describing them with adjectives or how they deal with situations.
– Development of Plot: This involves furthering the main idea or central storyline of the story you’re reading/writing.
– Illustration of Setting: This involves using sensory details to describe the environment that your character is in or that your story is somehow related to.
– Advancement of Theme: I wouldn’t say this is really an element of fiction per se; the only thing I could imagine would be defined as “advancing the theme” is describing what actions/events took place to teach the character and/or reader about the central lesson of the story.
Immediately, I don’t think that option 4 would apply to your given passage, since it’s something that applies to an overall story, and this is only a selection. Plus, I don’t see any lesson that could be learned from this passage alone without some background details at the very least. The other three are present in your passage, and I encourage you to read over your passage a few times and determine which you think is the most present. For me, personally, I think that your answer is the first one, since the passage mostly contains the narrator’s descriptions of how they were reacting to their surroundings.
Hope this helped you out! 🙂
1) A small caribbean islands economy depends on tourism. However in recent times, it has seen much less economic activity. Its government decides to let the market correct the situation——Hayek
In contrast to Keynes, Hayek trusted that certifiable recuperation from a post-blast crash called for satisfactory spending as well as for an arrival to economical generation – creation cleansed of blast period mutilations caused by pain free income.
Hayek was expelled as somebody who needed to “exchange work, sell stocks, sell the agriculturists, etc.
2) Flour prices have risen in a country where bread is a stable part of the diet. As a result, bread prices have risen tremendously. In an effort to make bread affordable for it’s citizens, the government has limited how much bakers can charge for bread.————Keynes
During the Great Depression of the 1930s, existing financial hypothesis was not able either to clarify the reasons for the extreme worldwide monetary crumple or to give a sufficient open strategy answer for kick off creation and business.
British economist John Maynard Keynes led an unrest in monetary reasoning that upset the then-overall thought that free markets would consequently give full business—that will be, that everybody who needed an occupation would have one as long as laborers were adaptable in their wage requests.
