Enzo read this passage from “The Smithville Gazette: Neighborhood Thief Strikes Again.” Another episode in the recent spate of neighborhood thefts occurred on Saturday at Ferguson’s department store. Several pieces of jewelry were taken at approximately 12:30 in the afternoon. Mrs. Jane Dickson, the employee working the jewelry counter reported that she did not initially see the theft, but realized shortly before 1 p.m. that several necklaces were missing from inside the jewelry case, which she had accidentally left unlocked while moving away to help another customer. Instead of taking notes on the central idea, Enzo copied the passage down exactly. What is the best way to revise the passage into notes that reveal the central idea? a) Saturday @ 12:30 p.m., Ferguson’s, Mrs. Jane Dickson, jewelry, necklaces b) robbery @ Ferguson’s jewelry on Sat.—necklaces stolen c) On Saturday at Ferguson’s, there was a robbery and some jewelry was stolen. d) Mrs. Jane Dickson says there was a jewelry robbery.


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

Julie spends every Saturday volunteering at the hospital. While there, she visits children in the department for babies born with addiction from addicted birth mothers. Which personal value most likely directly influences her actions?


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.

My mother and father practice the viola, with the Cleveland Orchestra on Saturday and I stay home to practice the violin. C. My mother, and father practice the viola with the Cleveland Orchestra on Saturday and I stay home to practice the violin. D.

The correct answer is B. The United States did not have any women astronauts until 1978; however, the Soviet Union sent a woman into space in 1963.

Explanation:

In grammar, the semicolon (;) is a punctuation mark used to introduce pauses or breaks between different sections of a sentence or between different sentences. According to grammar rules, this punctuation mark should be included to separate two independent clauses, which are clauses that express a complete idea; to separate items in a list if these are long or have inner punctuation and before adverbs that link two independent clauses such as moreover, otherwise, therefore or however.

This means in the case of the sentence “The United States did not have any women astronauts until 1978 however, the Soviet Union sent a woman into space in 1963” a semicolon should be added before the word “however”, not only because this is a conjunctive adverb but because this sentence contains two independent clauses that need to be separated by a semicolon. Therefore the sentence that shows the correct use of the semicolon is “The United States did not have any women astronauts until 1978; however, the Soviet Union sent a woman into space in 1963”.

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

The Tail Julie immediately slipped on her new pants the moment she got out of bed. Still in her pajama top, she strutted in front of the mirror. They were just like Michelle’s, the prettiest girl in the seventh grade. She stuck one leg out to admire the way they fit her own leg. Denise is going to be so jealous, she thought. At breakfast she showed her mom three tops that went with the new pants. Her mom picked the yellow one and suggested she comb her hair back. “And take those studs out and wear something that dangles,” Julie’s mom called after her as she went back to her room to change. Waiting for the school bus, Julie’s friend Lola complimented her on her outfit. “Where’d you get those earrings?” she asked. Before Julie could answer, Derek, Lola’s ninth-grade brother, came up behind her and thumped one of her earrings. “Got a hot date today?” he teased her. Julie thought Derek was cute, but he always treated her like she was his little sister, too. At least he noticed my outfit, she thought. Lola rolled her eyes. “Like you’d know what a hot date was,” she said. In the halls before class, all Julie’s friends complimented her, and she gleamed, enjoying every word. At lunch, she went in the restroom. Several of the popular eighth graders were in there, and they made a point of ignoring her. Julie went in one of the stalls, and when she came out, unknown to her, a long piece of toilet paper was stuck to the bottom of her shoe. As she walked toward the cafeteria, several of the boys snickered. That’s odd, she thought, but she just ignored them. The same eighth grade girls she had seen in the restroom turned away, laughing. Suddenly Derek rushed up behind her and said, “You seem to have grown a tail since this morning. It doesn’t really go with your outfit.” When Julie turned around, she glimpsed the toilet paper and blushed. As she reached down to pull it off, Derek put his foot on the tail and pulled it off her shoe. “Thanks, Derek,” Julie said. “I can’t believe those other kids didn’t tell me.” He winked at her. “What are friends for? Let’s have lunch.” Which sentence from the passage supports the idea that Lola is sarcastic? A. “Where’d you get those earrings?” she asked. B. Julie’s friend Lola complimented her on her outfit. C. “Like you’d know what a hot date was,” she said. D. Denise is going to be so jealous, she thought.

C. “Like you’d know what a hot date was,” she said.
This is an example of sarcasm because she is saying that Derek does not know what a “hot date” would look like.

Read this excerpt from Little Brother and answer the following questions in complete sentences using proper grammar and punctuation: Marcus manages to flag down a vehicle and they get more than they bargained for… It was a military-looking Jeep, like an armored Hummer, only it didn’t have any military insignia on it. The car skidded to a stop just in front of me, and I jumped back and lost my balance and ended up on the road. I felt the doors open near me, and then saw a confusion of booted feet moving close by. I looked up and saw a bunch of military-looking guys in coveralls, holding big, bulky rifles and wearing hooded gas masks with tinted face-plates. I barely had time to register them before those rifles were pointed at me. I’d never looked down the barrel of a gun before, but everything you’ve heard about the experience is true. You freeze where you are, time stops, and your heart thunders in your ears. I opened my mouth, then shut it, then, very slowly, I held my hands up in front of me. The faceless, eyeless armed man above me kept his gun very level. I didn’t even breathe. Van was screaming something and Jolu was shouting and I looked at them for a second and that was when someone put a coarse sack over my head and cinched it tight around my windpipe, so quick and so fiercely I barely had time to gasp before it was locked on me. I was pushed roughly but dispassionately onto my stomach and something went twice around my wrists and then tightened up as well, feeling like baling wire and biting cruelly. I cried out and my own voice was muffled by the hood. I was in total darkness now and I strained my ears to hear what was going on with my friends. I heard them shouting through the muffling canvas of the bag, and then I was being impersonally hauled to my feet by my wrists, my arms wrenched up behind my back, my shoulders screaming. I stumbled some, then a hand pushed my head down and I was inside the Hummer. More bodies were roughly shoved in beside me. “Guys?” I shouted, and earned a hard thump on my head for my trouble. I heard Jolu respond, then felt the thump he was dealt, too. My head rang like a gong. “Hey,” I said to the soldiers. “Hey, listen! We’re just high school students. I wanted to flag you down because my friend was bleeding. Someone stabbed him.” I had no idea how much of this was making it through the muffling bag. I kept talking. “Listen—this is some kind of misunderstanding. We’ve got to get my friend to a hospital—” Someone went upside my head again. It felt like they used a baton or something—it was harder than anyone had ever hit me in the head before. My eyes swam and watered and I literally couldn’t breathe through the pain. A moment later, I caught my breath, but I didn’t say anything. I’d learned my lesson. What conflict is Marcus facing?

Based on the given text, the stage of identity development Marcus is experiencing is Identity Foreclosure. This identity development is dominant among teenagers. They tend to venture into a commitment without exploring other alternatives in reaching their desired goals.

Taken for a Ride by T. Herlinger Laurel and her best friend, Paula, had boarded the Seattle ferry at 9:00 that morning—the first day of Spring Break—stowing their backpacks in a locker and climbing to the top of the ship. They had watched from the stern as the Space Needle and other Seattle landmarks faded away and the San Juan Islands gradually appeared. It would be another few hours before they reached Canada, which left them plenty of time to explore the boat. In no time, Laurel befriended one of the ship’s stewards, Ronald, who oriented the girls a bit, pointing out the snack bar and naming the various geographical sights they were passing. Laurel was fast developing a crush on the boy, and he was flirting right back, telling jokes and spending more time with her and Paula than with other passengers. The trip was shaping up just fine—that is, until Laurel went to buy some chips and discovered her wallet was missing! “Paula, it’s just disappeared,” she desperately told her friend, “my passport, all my money, my mom’s credit card, everything!” Paula tried to remain calm and to offer some comfort. “Could you have left it in your backpack, in the locker?” Laurel shook her head, nearly in tears now, but they raced down to the lockers anyway and emptied out the contents of both their packs—no luck. Laurel started pacing the floor, in a panic. There was no way Customs in Canada would ever let her in without any identification, which meant her vacation was ruined. Just then, Ronald appeared out of nowhere—a welcome sight to the distraught girls. Paula related the predicament they were in, and Ronald offered to announce the lost wallet on the PA system, but Laurel begged him not to. She felt humiliated enough as it was without the whole ship knowing about it. “You probably just dropped it or misplaced it,” he suggested. “Let’s split up and search the ship’s decks. Laurel, you and I can search the upper level, and Paula, you search the lower, okay?” Paula was amenable to the plan and quickly began scouring the area around the lockers. Laura and Ronald headed upstairs to the upper deck. Five minutes into their searching, Laurel slumped down on a bench and wept in frustration. Then, to her amazement, Ronald sat beside her and promptly produced her wallet from the inside pocket of his vest! “Oh, thank goodness!” Laurel cried. “But where on earth did you find it?” “I had your wallet all along,” the steward confessed. “I knew you and your friend were inexperienced travelers, and I wanted to show you what an easy target you could be for pickpocketers. Always carry your wallet in an inside pocket, or deep in your backpack, okay?” Nodding solemnly as she wiped away her tears, Laurel promised that she would. It was a tough lesson, but not one this young traveler would soon forget. It was a tough lesson, but not one this young traveler would soon forget. Who is being referred to in this sentence? A.Paula B.the narrator C.Ronald D.Laurel

the correct answer is Laurel or D

Derek goes fishing only on Saturdays. He plays soccer every third day. Today is Saturday and Derek goes fishing and playing soccer. How many days will it be before he goes fishing and plays soccer again on the same day?


Answer:

Total value of your investment is  $4516 and profit is $ 3278 .

Step-by-step explanation:

As given

When you purchased 100 shares of Bio-Tech Sciences, the value per share was listed at $12.38.

Cost price of the 100 shares of Bio-Tech Sciences = 100 × 12.38

                                                                                    = $ 1238

When Bio-Tech Sciences sent out their daily report today, you see that they list the value of their stock at $45.16.

Selling price of the 100 shares of Bio-Tech Sciences = 100 × 45.16

                                                                                       = $4516

Thus  Total value of your investment is  $4516 .

Profit = Selling price – Cost price

          =  $4516 – $1238

          = $ 3278

Profit is $3278 .

Jay mows 1 lawn every day monday through saturday he is pay $25 for each lawn how much money does jay earn mowing lawn’s


Answer:

0 (Zero)

Step-by-step explanation:

Mary has jogged each day for the past nine days. The data of her jogging is:

6, 7, 5, 0, 6, 12, 8, 6, 9

Now, we need to figure out the outlier.

We need to define what is an outlier:

“Outliers” are those values that “lie outside” the other values. Here in the given data set, it lies at an abnormal distance from other values in a random sample. We can see that all the values are ranging in a particular interval except 0.

0 in the given data set is lying outside of the other values. Therefore, 0, is the outlier in the given data set.
