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.

Based on the story, what is the narrator’s view of the Prussian soldiers compared to the French civilians and soldiers in the story?

[ad_1]

All the French characters in the story express hostility toward the Prussians. Berthine shows this attitude most clearly: “Blind anger rose in her heart against the prisoners; she would have been only too glad to kill them all, and so silence them.” In addition, the soldiers find the potential drowning of the enemies funny and cheer as water is pumped into the cellar. From the French characters’ points of view, the enemy soldiers aren’t human.

In contrast, the narrator shows the Prussians to be more complex than the French characters in the story assume. Unlike the other characters in his story, the Prussian soldiers are shown to be very human, and the portrayal of them is quite sympathetic. For example, the Prussian officer has no reason to keep Berthine and her mother alive after getting into the house, yet he keeps his promise of not harming them: “They had placed their rifles and helmets in a corner and waited for supper, as well behaved as children on a school bench.” The narrator also shows the Prussians as being vulnerable, human, and innocent: “Never mind,” replied the soldier, who seemed a decent sort of fellow. “We won’t do you any harm, but you must give us something to eat. We are nearly dead with hunger and fatigue.”

The characters see the Franco-Prussian conflict in a black and white way, but the narrator shows that the whole issue is complex and describes good and bad on both sides.

Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

There are many ways in which you probably do so without realizing. For example, you must likely uphold the value of liberty when you support freedom of speech or freedom of the press. Moreover, you support justice when you respect the rule of law and believe that people should be punished for their crimes. Finally, you probably support equal rights when you believe that people of all races and gender should be able to access services such as education.

When a trebuchet counterweight is hoisted by soldiers, what form of energy is transferred into the machine as work?

[ad_1]

The correct answer to the question is : 1) The water in pot X has more kinetic energy than water in pot Y.

EXPLANATION:

As per the question, the temperature of pot X = 56 degree Fahrenheit.

The temperature of water pot Y  = 49 degree Fahrenheit.

We know that temperature is a measure of average kinetic energy of energy of a system. The system having more average kinetic energy must have at a greater temperature as compared to the system having low average kinetic energy.

The potential energy of a system has no role in case of temperature.

If the temperature of two systems are equal, it means the average kinetic energy of two systems are equal.

When we provide heat to a body, the average kinetic energy of a body increases. So, its temperature increases. When the substance undergoes phase change, the average kinetic energy of the body remains constant.That’s why the temperature remains constant as long as total substance is not converted into other state.

Hence, the correct statement is that water in pot X has more kinetic energy than water in pot Y.

The ice streams untied,
And from the mountain of the cattle,
That with shadows stolen its light to the day
I went into my house, I saw that it was filthy
Of old room was spoils;
My crooked staff and less strong.
Overcoming the age I felt my sword
And I found nothing to put my eyes on
Which was not a remembrance of death.
