2. The door squeaked loudly as she pushed it open. She paused, listening carefully.

3. Hearing nothing, she pushed the old door open just wide enough to slip through.

5. A thick blanket of snow already covered the grass and sidewalk. She would never make it home tonight.

6. She closed the door gently and it clicked close with a solid finality. She felt her heart sink to the pit of her stomach like a stone.

7. The foyer was lit soft, dim glow created from candles flickering along the lofty ceiling.

8. The light threw large, frightening shadows that forced her to stay close to the wall.

9. She walked tentatively down the hall, the heels of her shoes clicking sharply against the hard stone.

10. At the end of the hallway, she paused suddenly, unsure of which way to turn. The left fork was long and dark. She could hear the foreboding laughter of children and the melody of a piano. But to the right… the right was lit with a weak candle that was already fluttering in an unseen wind. Taking a deep breath, she turned right.

Whats a topic sentence for Gender Identity is a spectrum, not a binary system. ? topic sentence is sentence that expresses the main idea of the paragraph in which it occurs.



In my opinion, I would rather read
a book instead of viewing a movie based on a book. Is the movie
healthier than the book? One reason why is when you are reading a
book, it will have many parts in the book that you might like.
In a movie, it will leave out many good parts that the book had
because a movie only takes about one hour to three hours. That is an
additional reason why I like books greater than movies is because it
takes an extended time to read them, and you can get more
information than a movie.
One movie I viewed that was based
on a book was titled the boy in the striped pajamas. In the movie,
it left out numerous parts that were in the book. Instead, the movie
added parts that were not even in the book. The first time I saw the
movie I recognized that the movie was not anything similar to the
book. Also, the book conveyed articles to the reader that a movie
did not such as the background material, the setting, and what the
characters are thinking about.
The book
finale of the boy in the striped pajamas you knew the two boys
passed away in the gas chamber. The movie however, you had to find
out what occurred to them because it did not say it like the book.
The book also gave you details about how they were feeling when they
had to get in the gas chamber. The book gave you information about
the boy’s family after he died and the movie did not.
 While you are reading you
are creating your individual movie in your own impression, and you
will resolve many of the significant parts like how the characters
speak, what they will look like, and what their surrounding will
look like. The author makes the book in his individual way and the
movie can not be improved than the book because the author made the
book and you can’t make it better if you are not the author.
In conclusion, I think you ought
to rather read the book than view the film.

Identify the type of clause or phrase in the sentence below. The group did its best to keep a good attitude reassuring one another that they would be rescued.

Equiano’s writing on the Middle Passage is the section of the work most
likely to end up in anthologies for history and literature classes. It
is a profoundly evocative and devastating account of one of the most
terrible events in human history: the forcible removal of millions of
Africans from their home, and their subsequent transportation across the
Atlantic in slave ships, under the most abominable and hellish
conditions imaginable. Slaves were chained to the hold and had to
perform their bodily functions while chained. Excrement and refuse were
everywhere, and the air was heavy with noxious, harmful smells. There
was no privacy, even for women and girls. Slaves could not move about,
and barely escaped without their limbs atrophying. They rarely had
enough to eat or drink, and would grow sick in droves. The cries of
pain, terror, and grief filled the air at all times. Many had no idea
why they were there, and were frightened of the white faces on the ship.
Individuals were severed from their families and thrust together with
strangers whose languages they could not speak. Many were beaten
mercilessly. It was so terrible that many slaves wished for death, but
even this was rarely possible by one’s own volition. Equiano’s account
is a valuable source for examining the realities of the slave system,
for its evocative writing and historical perspective.

A sentence has a subject, a(n) ________, and sometimes an object.


Answer:

2. Gandhi was committed to nonviolence, and he was determined to win freedom for his country without violence or confrontation, if possible.

4. He called it nonviolent noncooperation, and it proved to be one of the keys to India’s independence from Great Britain. Whenever there was trouble with British soldiers, Ganhdi urged the people of India not to fight, telling them instead to simply stand still.

Explanation:

These are the two sentences that are grammatically correct. In sentence 1, “Indias” is misspelled, as it should read “India’s” considering that this is a possessive. Moreover, “A” does not need to be capitalized and “career” is also misspelled. In sentence 3, “Gandhi” needs to be capitalized and the correct expression is “over the years.” Finally, sentence 5 misspells “twenty” and does not capitalize “king.”

Does the following sentence used coordination, subordination ,both,or neither


Answer:

The best option for the meaning of “demonstrate” in paragraph 4 is D. protest.

Explanation:

If we look up the meaning for the verb “to demonstrate”, we will find the following:

1. to show clearly that something exists or that it is true;

2. to do something yourself in order to show someone how to do it;

3. to protest about/against something in a public place with other people.

From the meanings listed above, we may conclude that “demonstrate” can signify “display”, “explain”, or “protest”. The first option given in the question – “conceal” – is already eliminated. However, to choose the best option we must take the context of the excerpt into consideration.

When the author says, “organized many events to demonstrate against the segregation between whites and blacks”, “demonstrate” can be successfully replaced by “protest” without any loss in its meaning. It was clearly a public gathering with the aim of fighting against segregation. In conclusion, the verb “demonstrate” is employed with the meaning of D. protest in paragraph 4.

Read this excerpt from The Odyssey: The wind drove me out of Ilium on to Ismarus,the Cicones’ stronghold. There I sacked the city,killed the men, but as for the wives and plunder,that rich haul we dragged away from the placewe shared it round so no one, not on my account,would go deprived of his fair share of spoils. Which sentence states implicit information you can learn from the passage? A.Odysseus raided the Cicones and killed all the men. B.Odysseus is a generous leader. C.Odysseus’s ship was pushed by the wind towards Ismarus. D.Odysseus took great riches from the Cicones.


1) The witches predictions foreshadow what might happen because they are predictions that are at the beginning of the play and in the middle too, so the tension is building up as to why the witches said them.

2) Macbeth’s reactions to the first 3 predictions were no other than shocked and confused. The other 3 predictions, he didn’t care because he thought he was unbeatable and nothing and nobody can stop him!! But his ambitions so go down hill as his ambitions take control over him. He is a ‘brave solider’ at the beginning of the play, but turns into a ‘dangerous’ criminal near the end of the play. Macbeth’s ambitions are his biggest weakness of everything.

3) Lady Macbeth is a clever, but deep down she is cruel as her husband is. She influenced her husband to kill Duncan, even if Macbeth didn’t want too. The term ‘coward’ was used to make Macbeth have the courage to kill Duncan. Also Lady Macbeth wanted to change from being a woman to being a man, ‘Come to my woman’s breast and take my milk for gall’ and ‘unsex me here’ meaning she want to have the courage to kill Duncan. She wants man power because women were know as the ‘weak’ ones and Lady Macbeth wanted to be the strongest one.

4) I don’t know about this one, but I have some ideas about some thought.

– Macbeth feels guilty, remorse, from killing Duncan. (He has a guilty conscience).
– He starts having hallucinations, especially after the death of Banquo. He hears voices after the murder of Duncan, ‘Macbeth does murder sleep’ and this creeps him out. And the dagger that leads him to the kings room.
– His kingship was bad to begin with.
– Macbeth’s Fate and Free will change throughout the play.

I hope this helps as much as it will help me!!! I’m sorry if I didn’t help with question 4, I didn’t know that one, but I did the other 3!!

Why do writers need to revise sentences containing dangling modifiers?

A dangling modifier ca be a clause, phrase, or even a word that is not located near the noun that it is meant to modify. In other words, it is ,isplaced. As a result, the modifier dangles because it lacks a direct connection to what it is describing. Therefore, writers need to revise these modifiers in order to state clearly the message they want to convey without resulting in misleading message, ideas or meanings.

What purpose does the repeated tapping sound at the door serve in Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven

The setting of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” explains why the speaker of the poem needs “to reassure himself by repeating that the tapping is only some late-night visitor.”
First of all, stanza one tells us it is midnight, and a “dreary” one, at that. The speaker is sitting in his library or study, and he is “weak and weary” from studying or reading some of his old books (or thinking about them as implied by the word “pondering”). Even worse, he has nearly fallen asleep, but not quite, when he hears a tapping on his door–and we all know what it is like to be startled awake in a hazy pre-nap daze. Finally, the knocking is on his chamber door, the door to this room, which is presumably not the door to his house.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Read the excerpt below from The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky and complete the instruction that follows. Wow. Wow. I can paint the picture for you if you like. We are all sitting in Sam and Patrick’s house, which I had never seen before. It was a rich house. Very clean. And we were all giving our final presents. The outside lights were on, and it was snowing, and it looked like magic. Like we were somewhere else. Like we were someplace better. It was the first time I had ever met Sam and Patrick’s parents. They were so nice. Sam’s mom is very pretty and tells great jokes. Sam said she used to be an actress when she was younger. Patrick’s dad is very tall and has a great handshake. He is also a very good cook. A lot of parents make you feel very awkward when you meet them. But not Sam and Patrick’s. They were friendly all through dinner, and when dinner was over, they left so we could have our party. They didn’t even check on us or anything. Not once. They just let us pretend it was our house. So, we decided to have the party in the “games” room, which had no games but a great rug. When I revealed that I was Patrick’s Secret Santa, everyone laughed because everyone knew, and Patrick did his best impersonation of being surprised, which was nice of him. Then, everyone asked what my last gift was, and I told them it was a poem I read a long time ago. It was a poem that Michael made a copy of for me. And I have read it a thousand times since because I don’t know who wrote it. I don’t know if it was ever in a book or a class. And I don’t know how old the person was. But I know that I want to know him or her. I want to know that this person is okay. Source: Chbosky, Stephen. The Perks of Being a Wallflower. New York: Pocket Books, 1999. Google Books. Web. 16 May 2011. Explain how the choice of a narrator affects the plot of a text using the above excerpt as an example.

The choice of narrator, especially a first-person narrator, affects the plot because a first-person narrator’s knowledge is limited to what that person is present to see and hear. We can’t know what anyone else is thinking and much action is left out because the narrator may not have seen or heard it. That information must be conveyed through dialogue with other characters. In this excerpt, using a different point of view or choosing a different first-person narrator would change the information we receive. For example, Sam or Patrick would probably not feel like being in their own house was like being “someplace better,” and the impression we are given of the parents would also be affected.

Read the sentence. We wondered about *whatever became of that little puppy*. The *bolded* words are what kind of clause?

Answer: The bolded words are a noun clause.

Explanation: A noun clause is a dependent clause. In other words, it is a clause that cannot stand alone as a sentence because, unlike an independent sentence, it does not present a complete idea. Noun clauses are generally introduced by a relative pronoun, such as “what”, “who” and “whatever”. “Whatever became of that little puppy” is a noun clause because it does not express a full thought; therefore, it cannot stand by itself. Moreover, it has been introduced by the relative pronoun “whatever”.

The root “alter” comes from the Latin, which literally means “other”; then through French influence, probably from the times when the Norman invasion to England was occurring, it settled as alteration, referring to the process of changing, being changed , modified, or as the difference derived through changes. Hence “alternate” conveys reciprocity, in the sense of interchanging each other’s places one after another, or basically “every other”.

President Wilson is trying to convince his listeners that going to war is about defending the nation and not about emotions.

When Germany began an unrestricted submarine war and the Telegram Zimmermann was sent, Wilson asked Congress to declare war to “make the world safe for democracy.” The United States sent an expeditionary force to fight alongside the Allies in Europe. During the war, Wilson focused on diplomacy and financial considerations, leaving military matters to his generals, especially John J. Pershing. Lending billions of dollars to the United Kingdom, France, and other allies, the Americans financed much of the Entente war effort.

Demonstrative adjectives are adjectives that modify nouns or pronouns by pointing or indicating if they are near or far in distance or time. Those is a demonstrative adjective because it modifies the noun “shoes” by indicating some shoes that are far in distance.

There are many subordinating conjunctions, one of them is in order that. In the sentence, this conjunction helps to make a transition between an independent clause (the judge listened to the explanation) and a dependent one (in order that he might decide fairly.), and it also serves to introduce the latter.
