## Read the following excerpt from Leslie Marmon Silko’s story “The Man to Send Rain Clouds.” They turned off the highway onto the sandy pueblo road. Not long after they passed the store and post office they saw Father Paul’s car coming toward them. When he recognized their faces he slowed his car and waved for them to stop. The young priest rolled down the car window. “Did you find old Teofilo?” he asked loudly. Leon stopped the truck. “Good morning, Father. We were just out to the sheep camp. Everything is O.K. now.” “Thank God for that. Teofilo is a very old man. You really shouldn’t allow him to stay at the sheep camp alone.” “No, he won’t do that any more now.” What does this dialogue reveal about the priest’s standing within the community? He is a trusted leader of the tribe. He is considered to be an outsider. He is a spiritual guide to the people. He is disliked by most of the people.

Answer: The right answer is the B: He is considered to be an outsider.

Explanation: Leon and his brother-in-law, Ken, had found Teofilo’s corpse under a tree. However, when Father Paul, a Franciscan priest, asked them if they had found him, Leon did not mention that Teofilo had died. He did not openly lie to the priest, but he avoided mentioning Teofilo’s death to him. This shows that Father Paul was not considered part of the tribe, but an outsider that was trying to “impose” his faith and his religious practices on a community that already had its own.

## Using carbo-loading to increase the store of glycogen seems to benefit only those athletes who engage in aerobic activities that are

Carbo-loading is good for athletes that do aerobic activities that are NOT IMMEDIATE.
———-Explanation———–
This is because carbohydrates are polysaccharides, and they take longer to break down and turn into energy.  That’s why it is better to eat carbs the night before a big race/game/meet/regatta/competition, because then you get the benefits f the energy the following.  An example of this would be a runner.  The athlete may eat pizza Friday night for a Saturday track meet.  They wouldn’t feel energized Friday night, but the following day because their body had time to break down the carbs.  If you need quick energy(i.e. a couple hours before a race, then you should eat monosaccharides, such as a banana or an apple.  This is because monosaccharides take less time to break down, and therefore give you a quicker burst of energy.

## For which purpose and audience would an email be the most effective type of document? A. Applying for a job at the shoe store at the mall B. Convincing your parents to let you borrow the car C. Inquiring about volunteer opportunities for a local political candidate D. Persuading the senior class to elect you prom queen

C. Inquiring about volunteer opportunities for a local political candidate

Explanation:

This is the best choice because there may be many different positions available as a volunteer for a local political candidate. Also, an application to be a volunteer and other information can be easily sent through email. Other options are not good choices. A job application should not be emailed because it is too informal. Convincing your parents to let you borrow the car should be a face to face conversation. Persuading the senior class to elect you prom queen is usually done in a speech and with other campaign advertising.

## Baby joey’s mother used to store his toys underneath his bed, but now she puts them away in his new toy box. joey, however, continues to look for his toys underneath his bed. according to piaget, joey______________. has not yet attained even rudimentary object permanence. does not yet appreciate physical causality. is making an a-not-b search error. cannot yet engage in goal-directed behavior.

The answer is, has not yet attained even rudimentary object permanence.

Base on Piaget’s Cognitive development, this falls under Stage 1 the Sensorimotor Stage. It explains that under the ages of 18-24 months, there is a development and realization of things that they believe to are always there. In a case where wanted a specific toy and it is not placed where it used to be, they have a state of remembering which is known as the object of permanence. This is a sign that their mind is developing.

To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

## Ia it correct to store towels that are used to clean food spills in a sanitizer solution when they are not in use

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

## Enzo read this passage from “The Smithville Gazette: Neighborhood Thief Strikes Again.” Another episode in the recent spate of neighborhood thefts occurred on Saturday at Ferguson’s department store. Several pieces of jewelry were taken at approximately 12:30 in the afternoon. Mrs. Jane Dickson, the employee working the jewelry counter reported that she did not initially see the theft, but realized shortly before 1 p.m. that several necklaces were missing from inside the jewelry case, which she had accidentally left unlocked while moving away to help another customer. Instead of taking notes on the central idea, Enzo copied the passage down exactly. What is the best way to revise the passage into notes that reveal the central idea? a) Saturday @ 12:30 p.m., Ferguson’s, Mrs. Jane Dickson, jewelry, necklaces b) robbery @ Ferguson’s jewelry on Sat.—necklaces stolen c) On Saturday at Ferguson’s, there was a robbery and some jewelry was stolen. d) Mrs. Jane Dickson says there was a jewelry robbery.

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.

Option C – BD=76 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : You are designing a diamond-shaped kite. you know that AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm, and AC = 84.8 cm.

To find : How long BD should it be?

Solution :

First we draw a rough diagram.

The given sides were AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm and AC = 84.8 cm.

According to properties of kite

Two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent.

DC=BC=72 cm

The diagonals are perpendicular.

So, AC ⊥ BD

Let O be the point where diagonal intersect let let the partition be x and y.

AC= AO+OC

AC=   …….[1]

Perpendicular bisect the diagonal BD into equal parts let it be z.

BD=BO+OD

BD=z+z

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔAOD

where H=AD=44.8 ,P= AO=x , B=OD=z

………[2]

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔCOD

where H=DC=72 ,P= OC=y , B=OD=z

…………[3]

Subtract [2] and [3]

……….[4]

Add equation [1] and [4], to get values of x and y

Substitute x in [1]

Substitute value of x in equation [2], to get z

We know, BD=z+z

BD= 38.06+38.06

BD= 76.12

Nearest to whole number BD=76 cm

Therefore, Option c – BD=76 cm is correct.

## Where is the best place to store a fire extinguisher on a boat?

The gravitational force Fg between two objects is given by the equation:

Fg=(G*m₁*m₂)/r₂, where G=6.67*10^-11 m³ kg⁻¹ s⁻² is the gravitational constant, m₁ and m₂ are the masses of the two bodies and r is the distance between those bodies.

Due to the gravitational attraction the pencil and the eraser will attract if we there is no friction on the surface.

m₁=10 g=0.01 kg is the mass of the pencil
m₂=20 g=0.02 kg is the mass of the eraser
r=2.5 cm = 0.025 m

First we calculate the Fg:

Fg={(6.67*10^-11)*0.01*0.02}/(0.025²)=2.1344*10^-11 N

To get the velocity v of the pencil:

v²=2as, where a is the acceleration of the pencil and s is the path. In our case s=r so we can write:

v²=2ar

a=Fg/m₁= 2.133*10^-9 m/s²

v²=2*(2.133*10^-9)*0.025=1.0665*10^-10

v=√(1.0665*10^-10)=1.0327*10^-5 m/s

We have the velocity and the acceleration, so we can calculate the time t with the equation:

t=v/a=(1.0327*10^-5)/(2.133*10^-9)=4841.6 s

1 hour has 3600 s so when we divide time t in seconds by 3600 we get time T in hours:

T=t/3600=4841.6/3600=1.3449 h.

So the time for the pencil and eraser to touch is T=1.3449 hours.

Also time T can be expressed like T= 1h and 20 mins and 41.64 s

## Highlighter pens cost \$3.86 per set at an office supply store. Which equation can be used to determine the price, P, of n sets of these pens? n = 3.86P P equals 3.86 over n n equals 3.86 over P P = 3.86n

Number of copy machines must be made to minimize the unit cost=160.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given that the unit cost function C ( the cost in dollars to make each copy machine)

Then the unit cost function is given by

We have to find the number of copy machines for  minimize the unit  cost

Differentiate with respect to x

Then we get

……(equation I)

To find the value of x then we susbtitute is equal to zero

By using division property of equality

Again differentiate the equation I with respect to x then we get

Hence, the unit cost is minimize for x=160

Therefore, the number of copy machines must be made to minimize the unit cost =160
