The correct option is A.
There are two basic sources which an author can draw from when writing an article. The first one is primary source and this refers to an account of an event or history by a person who actually witness the event or the person who experience the event directly. The second one is secondary source and it refers to those accounts of events that are drawn from primary sources.
Thus, a journal account about civil war by a civil war soldier who experienced the war is considered a primary source.

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.

Then chance stepped in. In 1798, Napoleon went to Egypt to protect its trade interests. In addition to an army, he brought along Egyptian scholars who were charged with copying the inscriptions and studying the architecture. The following year, the French bolstered their defenses by rebuilding a fort in the town of Rosetta. In the midst of the fortification, the Rosetta Stone was discovered. Ironically, this large stone tablet was found not by one of the scholars but by a soldier. Luckily, he recognized that the inscriptions must have value. Militarily, Napoleon’s Egyptian campaign was a disaster—the British decimated the French navy—but historically, it was of long-lasting importance. Which best describes the primary structure of this excerpt? problem and solution chronological order list form comparison and contrast

No, although some literature is, such as Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad or Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett. These types of works were most popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century. But, there are other types of literature that are fueled by the writer’s own life (i.e., Edgar Allan Poe who often wrote poems inspired by his late wife, Virginia Clemm, Sylvia Plath who wrote The Bell Jar based off of her own mental illness experience, and Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon who wrote the novel based off of her daughter.) The most popular literature is based on what the author is most passionate about. Whether it is politics, activism, romanticism, etc., as long as it is charged by a driving force, it is literature.

Answer:

Fear of the unknown and desire to stay with tradition was not a reason that allowed widespread exploration starting in the 1400s, as the explorers had no fear but a strong desire of discovering new places and getting richess.

Explanation:

The era of discoveries was a historical period that began at the beginning of the 15th century, extending until the beginning of the 17th century. During this time the Europeans, mainly Portuguese, Spanish and British, traveled almost the entire planet, mapping it and conquering it to a large extent. The reason for this expansion came from the need to access the riches of Asia with which to contribute to European mercantilism.

Many lands previously unknown to Europeans were discovered by them in this period, although most were already inhabited. From the perspective of many non-Europeans, the era of discoveries marked the arrival of invaders from previously unknown continents.

The options of the question are, A) by explaining that world leaders are doing all they can to tackle climate change now. B) by quoting Winston Churchill to show that he also believes that climate change is a serious issue. C) by comparing the inaction of the world leaders of today to the inaction of leaders in the past. D) by showing the differences in the effects of climate change and World War II.  

The correct answers are C) by comparing the inaction of the world leaders of today to the inaction of leaders in the past.

The excerpt that develops Gore’s theme that climate change is a problem that must be addressed is “by comparing the inaction of the world leaders of today to the inaction of leaders in the past.”

Al Gore develops the urgency of attending the issues that climate change brings when in the excerpt he makes reference to the comparison made by Winston Churchill to Hitler’s threat: “They go on in strange paradox,, decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent”.  This way, Al Gore is comparing the inaction of the world leaders of today to the inaction of leaders in the past.
