His was the moment Zachary had been waiting for. He had rehearsed his lines for weeks, silently in his head as he biked to school, out loud in the mirror when he was home alone, and, to get used to an audience, in front of his sister’s stuffed animals and a slightly confused dog. Zachary had not prepared well for last year’s audition, and at the last minute had chosen not to go—too embarrassed—or too scared—he did not know which. Now, as he stood backstage, he thought about last year. He had been so disappointed in himself as he walked home alone, snuck to his room, and flopped sadly into his bed. “Next year will be different,” he vowed then and there. “I will be better prepared.” And he was. He just hoped it was enough. His throat was dry, his palms were sweaty, his heart was pounding, but he was ready to face the spotlight. A hushed silence fell across the auditorium as the drama teacher called his name. Zachary Hamilton. Based on the passage, how do you think Zachary will deal with the conflict in the remainder of the story?

[ad_1]

Answer:

Explanation:

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

D. Even the Chinese philosopher was wise enough to regard the individual as the basis of the empire.

David Thoreau’s “The Civil Disobedience” emphasizes the need to prioritize the conscience of individuals over what laws dictate them to do. He defends and tries to encourage citizens to institute a better government, a government that respects individuals. To do so, Thoreau defends that the government is formed by the people and for the people, this way, when a government abuses its powers people have the right to regain power.

Thoreau refused to submit himself to regulations and taxes that were imposed by the government, he believed that they were unfair to him and all Americans.

Short poem on brave soldiers

Hear them marching
Down the street
Hear there hearts beat

They, brave soldiers,
Risk their lives
To save our country and their families

Oh, them boys and men
Saying to their homes goodbye
I shall save our country

Veterans Day is a day
To remember these brave soldiers
And if you just listen carefully to the waves of our flag

You’ll still hear them marching and their hearts beating 

I hope this helps! 😀

Read the excerpt from The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. “We have common friends,” said Mr. Utterson. “Common friends,” echoed Mr. Hyde, a little hoarsely. “Who are they?” “Jekyll, for instance,” said the lawyer. “He never told you,” cried Mr. Hyde, with a flush of anger. “I did not think you would have lied.” “Come,” said Mr. Utterson, “that is not fitting language.” The other snarled aloud into a savage laugh; and the next moment, with extraordinary quickness, he had unlocked the door and disappeared into the house. Which statement best describes how Mr. Hyde is characterized in the excerpt? The author uses direct characterization to show readers that Mr. Hyde is a sinister man. The author uses direct characterization to show readers that Mr. Hyde has a strange appearance. The author uses indirect characterization to show that Mr. Hyde is lonely and misunderstood. The author uses indirect characterization to show that Mr. Hyde is rude and uncivilized.

The author uses indirect characterization to show that Mr. Hyde is rude and uncivilized.

Indirect characterization is when the author shows the traits of the character through his or her speech, thoughts, actions, effects on others, and looks. For example a character who looks unclean with ragged torn clothing would be characterized as poor or homeless. The author doesn’t specifically say this, but rather shows it through details. Direct characterization is when the author specifically tells you a character trait. For example, Sam was always dishonest; he never told the truth to anyone about who he really was. In this example Sam is being directly characterized as dishonest. In the excerpt, Mr. Hyde is never directly characterized. His traits are never explicitly stated. Instead the reader must infer them which is indirect characterization. In this excerpt, Mr. Hyde is not shown as being lonely or misunderstood. He’s just plain rude.

C.Though conversational in style, The Apology ignores language that calls for several comprehension strategies.

Answer:

A.Though conversational in style, The Apology contains language that calls for several comprehension strategies.

Explanation:

Plato’s The Apology is a record of the discourse Socrates makes at the preliminary in which he is accused of not perceiving the divine beings perceived by the state, developing new gods, and debasing the young of Athens. Socrates’ discourse, be that as it may, is in no way, shape or form an “expression of remorse” in our advanced comprehension of the word. The name of the exchange gets from the Greek “apologia,” which interprets as a barrier, or a discourse made in safeguard. Along these lines, in The Apology, Socrates endeavors to protect himself and his direct – unquestionably not to apologize for it.

Adjoining was her bed room…The door stood open is what type of figurative language

[ad_1]

1. Those

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.

2. Subordinating

Subordinating conjunctions are conjunctions that introduce a subordinating (or dependent) clause, and that join dependent clauses to independent clauses. 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.

3. The word “very” is an adverb describing to what extent.

In the sentence, very does not act as an adjective because it is not describing a noun, instead, it acts as an adverb because it modifies an adjective: beautiful by describing to what extent or degree the coral reef was beautiful.
