The most comfortable thing that I would do among the choices is
introducing myself to a stranger

There’s no harm in approaching someone and telling them your name and asking for theirs. This is much easier when what you have in mind is purely introducing yourself and asking for other person’s name. After that, you can choose to do whatever you want, either start a conversation with a topic or end it at just knowing each other’s names.

The other choices involve some form of conflict or negative emotions which is why they’re harder to do.

Ernesto read a play about a king who returns home after many years and finds a strange man exiting his wife’s bedroom. The king curses the man and orders that he be executed, but later he learns that the stranger was his grown son, who he had not recognized. Although the play ends badly for the king and his family, a few points of humor in the play break up the tension. Which of the following is a term to describe those moments of humor? A. tragedy B. comic relief C. satire D. farce


Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
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.

Read the excerpt from The Odyssey. “Stranger, you are no longer what you were just now! Your cloak is new; even your skin! You are one of the gods who rule the sweep of heaven! Be kind to us, we’ll make you fair oblation and gifts of hammered gold. Have mercy on us!” Which is a symbol in this excerpt? the gold gifts the ruling gods the new cloak the kind stranger

Posted in English

Answer:

The new cloak

Explanation:

In this passage, the symbol that is present is that of the new cloak. The cloak is meant to symbolize the transformation that Odysseus just went through. He arrived looking like a weary traveller, but with his change, he now resembles the hero he is meant to be. The transformation is so incredible that the speaker refers to him as “one of the gods who rule the sweep of heaven.”

Read these words from Marie Curie: During a particularly rigorous winter, it was not unusual for the water to freeze in the basin in the night; to be able to sleep I was obliged to pile all my clothes on the bedcovers. In the same room I prepared my meals with the aid of an alcohol lamp and a few kitchen utensils. These meals were often reduced to bread with a cup of chocolate, eggs or fruit. Which of the following details from the historical fiction piece “Marie Curie and the Discovery of Radioactivity” supports Marie’s factual statement? When Marie arrived in Paris in 1891, she studied physics at the greatest university in Europe, the Sorbonne. But how poor she was! When she was growing up in Russian-occupied Poland, even to study science was forbidden. A moment later, people passing by the School of Physics and Chemistry were treated to a sight not often seen on the fashionable streets of Paris in the early 1900s: a bareheaded young woman in a laboratory smock, ripping eagerly into the pile of heavy sacks and burying her hands in . . . dirt? No one, the Curies included, had ever seen this element. Still, the husband-and-wife team had given it a name: radium.

Answer: When Marie arrived in Paris in 1891, she studied physics at the greatest university in Europe, the Sorbonne. But how poor she was!

In this excerpt, Curie describes how, during the winter, she often had to pile all her clothes on the bedcovers in order to be warm. This shows that Curie did not have lumber or coal to keep her room warm. Moreover, she had to cook her food with an alcohol lamp, and her meals were extremely simple and austere. The passage suggests the life of a student, and the fact that her money was very limited. The sentence that supports the passage, therefore, is the one that describes her studies in Paris and her poverty.

Read the selection below from Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift and answer the question that follows. There is likewise another diversion which is only shown before the emperor and the empress, and first minister, upon particular occasions. The emperor lays on the table three fine silken threads of six inches long; one is purple, the other yellow, and the third white. These threads are proposed as prizes for those persons whom the emperor has a mind to distinguish by a peculiar mark of his favor. . . . The emperor holds a stick in his hands, both ends parallel to the horizon, while the candidates advancing, one by one, sometimes leap over the stick, sometimes creep under it, backward and forward, several times, according as the stick is advanced or depressed. Which sentence summarizes the passage best?The emperor rewards his subjects for jumping over and under a stick.The narrator enjoys spending time with the emperor.The emperor and empress have no respect for their subjects.The threads and sticks used in games must be replaced at the end of each day.

Answer:

the correct anwer is “The emperor rewards his subjects for jumping over and under a stick.”

Explanation:

According to the context of the paragraph, the emperor gives a prize to those that participate in the activity. The prizes are three fine silken threads for candidates.

The rest of the options are incorrect since the narrator does not mention having fun with the emperor, there are no signs or vocabulary in the text that shows that the emperor is disrespectful towards subjects, and the text does not mention that the sticks are replaced at the end of the day.

When sea otters want to rest, they wrap a piece of kelp around their body to hold themselves steady among the rolling waves. Likewise, California’s sea otter numbers are holding steady against the many forces pushing against their population recovery, according to the latest field survey led by federal, state, aquarium, and university scientists. Since the 1980s, U.S. Geological Survey scientists have calculated a population index each year for the southern sea otter—Enhydra lutris nereis—a species federally listed as Threatened. The annual range-wide field survey collects data on this protected marine mammal on behalf of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. For 2014, USGS reports the population index as 2,944 (data available online). It’s a negligible bump from the 2013 report of 2,939. For southern sea otters to be considered for removal from the “Threatened” species list, the population index would have to exceed 3,090 for three consecutive years, according to the Southern Sea Otter Recovery Plan established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “For an animal so few in number, sea otter population trends can be influenced by many local and range-wide factors,” says biologist Tim Tinker with the USGS Western Ecological Research Center, who leads California sea otter research with co-investigators from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Office of Spill Prevention and Response, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, University of California, Santa Cruz, and other institutions. “We are seeing elevated mortality suggestive of food resource limitation in some parts of the range, and increasing mortality from white shark attacks in others. But our federal, state, aquarium, and university sea otter research alliance is making progress in understanding how all these trends relate to environmental factors along the California coast.” California sea otters feed and live in the “near shore marine ecosystem”—the stretch of ocean that hugs a shoreline—making them a good indicator species for detecting pollutants and pathogens1 washed down from coastlands. And along many parts of Pacific North America, sea otters play critical roles in natural food webs, keeping important ecosystems like kelp forests and seagrass beds in balance. Studying sea otters, then, not only helps us understand their population recovery, but it also uncovers clues on the health and rhythm of near shore marine ecosystems—the same waters many people swim, fish, and make a living in every day. 1pathogens: a germ (as a bacterium or virus) that causes disease Which word describes the effort to document sea otter populations in California, based on this article?

Read the following passage and answer the question that follows. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson Part 1 Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary, and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life. He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years. But he had an approved tolerance for others; sometimes wondering, almost with envy, at the high pressure of spirits involved in their misdeeds; and in any extremity inclined to help rather than to reprove. “I incline to, Cain’s heresy*,” he used to say. “I let my brother go to the devil in his quaintly ‘own way.'” In this character, it was frequently his fortune to be the last reputable acquaintance and the last good influence in the lives of down-going men. And to such as these, so long as they came about his chambers, he never marked a shade of change in his demeanour. No doubt the feat was easy to Mr. Utterson; for he was undemonstrative at the best, and even his friendship seemed to be founded in a similar catholicity of good-nature. It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity; and that was the lawyer’s way. His friends were those of his own blood or those whom he had known the longest; his affections, like ivy, were the growth of time, they implied no aptness in the object. Hence, no doubt, the bond that united him to Mr. Richard Enfield, his distant kinsman, the well-known man about town. It was a nut to crack for many, what these two could see in each other, or what subject they could find in common. It was reported by those who encountered them in their Sunday walks, that they said nothing, looked singularly dull, and would hail with obvious relief the appearance of a friend. For all that, the two men put the greatest store by these excursions, counted them the chief jewel of each week, and not only set aside occasions of pleasure, but even resisted the calls of business, that they might enjoy them uninterrupted. *The biblical story of Cain and Abel is a story about two brothers who gave offerings to God. Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not. Jealous, Cain killed his brother. When God asked Cain where Abel was, Cain said, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” By saying this, Cain implied that what his brother did was his own business. (Genesis 4:1-16) Which line from the text shows that Mr. Utterson took it slowly when making friends? “That was the lawyer’s way.” “No doubt the feat was easy to Mr. Utterson.” “His affections, like ivy, were the growth of time.” “He never marked a shade of change in his demeanour.”

The CORRECT answer is “His affections, like ivy, were the growth of time.” 🙂

Which of the following is the best example of dramatic irony? A. Your friend gives a confusing explanation for why he did something and you respond, “That’s obvious.” B. A movie in which a man is rude to an older female stranger on the street. You know that woman is, in fact, his mother, although he does not. C. A cowboy movie set at a rodeo and the person who rides the bucking bronco the longest is an 8-year-old girl in a pink tutu. D. A television show that stars male and female business partners.


Answers:

10. A: Embarrassed by her appearance, because she did not want Mr. Short to be seen suddenly and looking worn out.

This can be verified ” After two years’ separation both were appalled by the change in the other. One was wrinkled, the other haggard;…….” “After gazing at each other they hastily turned away,….Mrs. tall ran inside”

11.A. impressed by the traditions that dictate his meals, because after narrating that about a hundred  main dishes were laid on six tables for  the empress, the writer goes on to say that he had about thirty main dishes laid out for show. Though he  also uses the word “extravagance” to describe the manner in which this tradition had been passed on from one empress to the other. Furthermore, he continues explaining, naming and detailing the personalities involved  meals are elaboration of the meals presented to him”The food I ate was sent over by the Empress Dowager, and after her death, by the High Consorts”….that skilled chefs produced twenty or more really delicious…….this was consumed by him but that those prepared by the imperial kitchens were set at a distance for the sake of appearances.

13.B: Admiring, because they had tried to release the crane into the wild and while waiting for the bird to take its own initiative they heard a shot but suddenly their bird “stretched its long neck with a whoop and disappeared into the sky. For a long time the boys could not take their eyes away from the blue sky into which their crane had soared.

14. B: Social Life, because the writer states at the end of the paragraph the Jane was already aware of Rose´s life style, clothes, lovely house…everything she needed to make life good for her but she also wanted to know how was her varsity life like.
