My grandfather slams the door and motions me to the chair in front of his desk. I’ll be thirteen in two weeks. “There’s something I want to tell you, son,” he says. “Something I’ve never told anybody. You think you’re ready?

His was the moment Zachary had been waiting for. He had rehearsed his lines for weeks, silently in his head as he biked to school, out loud in the mirror when he was home alone, and, to get used to an audience, in front of his sister’s stuffed animals and a slightly confused dog. Zachary had not prepared well for last year’s audition, and at the last minute had chosen not to go—too embarrassed—or too scared—he did not know which. Now, as he stood backstage, he thought about last year. He had been so disappointed in himself as he walked home alone, snuck to his room, and flopped sadly into his bed. “Next year will be different,” he vowed then and there. “I will be better prepared.” And he was. He just hoped it was enough. His throat was dry, his palms were sweaty, his heart was pounding, but he was ready to face the spotlight. A hushed silence fell across the auditorium as the drama teacher called his name. Zachary Hamilton.

In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.

Poland

In January 1947, elections were held, resulting in the communist Republic of Poland. Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.

Hungary

In Hungary, the Soviets imposed harsh conditions that seized key raw materials and interfered in the internal affairs and social, policymaking. The Red army set some vigilance with police to persecute political opponents and enemies of the state.

Bulgaria

In September 1944, The Soviets declared war on Bulgary, under the argument that this country allowed its territory where the Wehrmacht (Germany) crossed and continued to press the frontlines eastwards. The Red Army motivated a coup d Etat where communists also set favorable conditions for the creation of a communist regime.

-This countries became to form the Eastern bloc, a period that lasted several decades until the 1989 Revolutions set an important amount of political and social changes in Europe in East and Central Europe, causing most of the socialist states, formerly puppet states to Soviet Russia to collapse and engage in democratic process and incorporate a different economic model.

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

Answer:

false

Explanation:

From 1927, the Soviet Union introduced the concept of collective farms. The purpose of collectivization was to make individual lands and labor pass to collective farms, called kolkhozes. The workers received no wages but received part of what they produced on the farm, just to cover their needs and those of their families. Soviet leaders hoped that collectivization would significantly increase the food supply for the urban population, meaning that at that time it was believed that collective farms were the most efficient way to produce food.

This was not the case, however, and collective farms proved to be a major problem.

Collectivization created a profound trauma for the Russian peasantry. The forced confiscation of meat and bread led to riots. There were even peasants who chose to sacrifice their cattle rather than hand them over to collective farms. Sometimes the Soviet government used the army to suppress the revolts.

The ancient traditions of the Russian peasantry were eventually destroyed in the process. The peasants, who used to be interested in the fruits of their work, were losing interest in the kolkhozes. The early years of collectivization proved catastrophic. In 1932 and 1933 there was a great famine in the country that claimed the lives of eight million people, largely due to collectivization.

The answer to this question is the letter “C” which is “Percy earns a greater hourly wage of $7.50 at the library”. The solution and explanations are to be discussed below:
On Monday, 3 hours at library and 2 hours in the coffee shop 
3x + 2x = 36.5
On Tuesday, 2 hours at library and 5 hours in coffee shop
2x + 5y = 50
We have x to represents the hourly wage in the library
We have y to represents the hourly wage in the coffee shop
Solving for x and y, we have:
3x + 2y = 36.5
3x = 36.5 – 2y
x = (36.5 -2y) /3

2x + 5y=50
2x = 50 -5y
x = (50-5y) /2

Since x = x, we have:
(36.5 -2y) / 3 = (50 – 5y) /2
2 (36.5 -2y) = 3*(50-5y)
73 – 4y = 150 -15y
15y – 4y = 150 – 73
11y = 77
y = 7 (hourly wage for the coffe shop work)

Solving for x, we have:
x = (50 -5y) / 2
x = (50 – 5*7) /2
x = (50 – 35) / 2
x = 15/2
x = 7.5 (hourly wage in the library)

Therefore, the answer is the letter “C”.

(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.

Read the passage. Then, answer the question(s). A modern dentist would certainly enjoy having a hadrosaur as a client. Although an adult human being has only 32 teeth, these duck-billed dinosaurs of the Late Cretaceous Period had up to 2,000 teeth, with 500 along each side of each jaw. Unlike human beings, who grow two sets of teeth in their lifetimes, the hadrosaurs, like sharks and modern reptiles, had built-in replacement teeth. If a tooth became worn down or broke off, a new one would take its place. In skeletal remains of the jaws of these toothy beasts, scientists have found entire banks of replacement teeth. Like athletes sitting on the bench, they were ready and waiting to be put to use. Which statement or detail from the passage best helps readers picture a hadrosaur’s teeth?

The correct answer is A. A tragedy has characters who suffer pain and loss, while a comedy has funny situations and a happy ending.

Explanation;

Both tragedy and comedy are genres of literature that commonly display fictional stories, character, and events; however, they differ in their focus and features. In the case of tragedy, this has a sad ending and the situations presented include mostly events that focus on suffering and difficult situations the characters are unable to overcome.

On the other hand, the comedy focuses on humor and entertaining situations, has a happy ending and aims at entertaining and making the audience laugh rather than making them feel bad about characters. According to this, the statement that shows the difference between tragedy and comedy is “A tragedy has characters who suffer pain and loss, while a comedy has funny situations and a happy ending”.

Feathers is ready to show off a coin trick. What is the probability of flipping heads on a coin and then flipping the coin again and getting heads?

[ad_1]

1. We assume, that the number 122 is 100% – because it’s the output value of the task. 
2. We assume, that x is the value we are looking for. 
3. If 100% equals 122, so we can write it down as 100%=122. 
4. We know, that x% equals 11 of the output value, so we can write it down as x%=11. 
5. Now we have two simple equations:
1) 100%=122
2) x%=11
where left sides of both of them have the same units, and both right sides have the same units, so we can do something like that:
100%/x%=122/11
6. Now we just have to solve the simple equation, and we will get the solution we are looking for.

7. Solution for 11 is what percent of 122

100%/x%=122/11
(100/x)*x=(122/11)*x       – we multiply both sides of the equation by x
100=11.0909090909*x       – we divide both sides of the equation by (11.0909090909) to get x
100/11.0909090909=x 
9.01639344262=x 
x=9.01639344262

now we have: 
11 is 9.01639344262% of 122

Explanation:

This is the statement that most foreshadows the fact that the narrator will feel regret for something that he has done to Doodle. In this excerpt, the narrator tells us that he believes there is some element of cruelty within him, and that at times, this cruelty was shown in his dealings with Doodle, as he could be mean to him. This suggest that the author will be cruel to Doodle later in the story.
