Which excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis” most foreshadows that the narrator will feel regret for something he has done to Doodle? But sometimes (like right now), as I sit in the cool, green-draped parlor, the grindstone begins to turn, and time with all its changes is ground away—and I remember Doodle. Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did, so I dragged him across the burning cotton field to share with him the only beauty I knew, Old Woman Swamp. There is within me (and with sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction, and at times I was mean to Doodle. Once I had succeeded in teaching Doodle to walk, I began to believe in my own infallibility and I prepared a terrific development program for him, unknown to Mama and Daddy, of course.

Answer:

Gather references, and prepare your résumé.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.

Dear Mr. Truman,

First of all, I have a great deal of respect for you. It must have been hard to suddenly be plunged into presidency so quickly. I know that you were quickly informed of the Manhattan Project. It must have been hard to pick the option  of dropping the atom bombs on Japan. War is an ugly thing, and you had to quickly take leadership of the U.S. and decide the actions that America would take.

I completely agree with your actions of choosing to use the atomic bombs. Without it, America would have needed to invade the Japanese homeland, and the Japanese are fierce fighters. The invasion would have cost thousands of American lives. Thankfully, you made this sacrifice unnecessary by bombing two cities and patiently waiting for word of the Japanese surrender. That must have not been easy.

Whether you know it or not, you have made a huge difference on history. You are the man that was suddenly put into the highest office in the land and quickly adjusted, making sound decisions in the middle of war. We all appreciate your work for America.

                                                     Sincerely,

                                                             Janith Abernathy

Read the following passage carefully. She was such a sharp little lady, and used to sit with her hands folded in each other, looking so very watchful while she talked to me that perhaps I found that rather irksome. Or perhaps it was her being so upright and trim; though I don’t think it was that, because I thought that quaintly pleasant. Nor can it have been the general expression of her face, which was very sparkling and pretty for an old lady. I don’t know what it was. Or at least if I do, now, I thought I did not then. Or at least–but it don’t matter. (from Bleak House, Chapter XXX, by Charles Dickens) Do you think the point of view used is suitable? Would you have used that point of view to say the same thing? Why? Why not? Answer in complete sentences.
