## Read this excerpt from “A Horseman in the Sky” by Ambrose Bierce. Which sentence or phrase in the passage reveals how the father feels about his son’s decision to join the Union army?

Well, go, sir, and whatever may occur do what you conceive to be your duty. Virginia, to which you are a traitor, must get on without you. Should we both live to the end of the war, we will speak further of the matter. Your mother, as the physician has informed you, is in a most critical condition; at the best she cannot be with us longer than a few weeks, but that time is precious. It would be better not to disturb her.”

So Carter Druse, bowing reverently to his father, who returned the salute with a stately courtesy that masked a breaking heart, left the home of his childhood to go soldiering. By conscience and courage, by deeds of devotion and daring, he soon commended himself to his fellows and his officers; and it was to these qualities and to some knowledge of the country that he owed his selection for his present perilous duty at the extreme outpost.

Which option correctly completes the sentence? a new form of government ruled by knights a society where power could be wrested from the nobility the decline of the power of the Church of England the elimination of the clan system

## What’s the correct way to rewrite the following sentence? The chef tasted the soup taking a tiny sip. A. Taking a tiny sip, the chef tasted the soup. B. Tasting the soup, a tiny sip was taken by the chef. C. The chef tasted the soup and taking a tiny sip. D. The soup was tasted by the chef in a tiny sip.

First off, you can rule out B and C. They simply do not make sense. Between A and D, it seems that D has a misplaced modifier by saying “in a tiny sip.” a “tiny sip” is being used as a noun here. Therefore, the correct answer to your question is A. Taking a tiny sip, the chef tasted the soup. Hope this helped! (although I think there is better ways this sentence could be written)

The answer to your question would be that the sentence that correctly shows where a semicolon is needed in the sentence is the following one: All astronauts had master’s or doctorate degrees, but only two were jet pilots; consequently, the astronauts with no flight experience had to complete one year of flight training.

Explanation:

The sentence above contains the conjunctive adverb consequently. You should always use a period or semicolon before the conjunctive adverb when separating two independent clauses. That is why the last sentence is the one that is correctly punctuated.

## This country severely restricted the rights of its nonwhite citizens under a policy called apartheid, but since 1997 has made progress towards equality. The country described in the sentence above is __________. A. Kenya B. Somalia C. South Africa D. Sudan

The correct answer is C. South Africa

Explanation:

“The apartheid” was a legislation system that promoted racial segregation and that took place from 1948 to 1990 in South Africa. During this period, the country legislation was based on “white supremacy” which is the idea that white people are superior and should dominate people from other races mainly promoted by the National Party of this country. Because of this, “The apartheid” included multiple ways of segregation and oppression to nonwhite citizens who were the majority of the population in contrast to the minority of white people that dominated the country. This included important violations to rights including human and politic rights in all South Africa. However, since the 1990s and especially since 1997 with the end of the National Party the government of this country has gone through multiple changes and negotiations that supported the progress towards equality in South Africa. Thus, the country in which the rights of nonwhite citizens were restricted under the “apartheid” and since 1997 made progress towards equality is South Africa.
