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

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.

The correct answer is B. She took a deep breath and stepped onto the sidewalk as her tears were drying.

Explanation:

The syntax is the study of grammatical structures in sentences, this means syntax deals with the rules and principles that guide the way language is used following specific structures including word order. Even though syntax can vary and the order of words in a sentence is not completely fixed, especially in the way real users of language use words,  according to traditional syntax sentences should follow a specific order which is Subject (the one doing the action) + Verb (action) +Object  (the object affected by the action).

In this way, this is the order words in a sentence should follow and the case of option B as the subject goes first, then is followed by a verb and then by an object, then a second verb is introduced and the object of it, a subject it is not placed before the second verb as the actions are connected to the first subject:  She (Subject)  took (Verb) a deep breath (Object) and stepped (Verb) onto the sidewalk as her tears were drying (Object). Thus, B is the sentence that follows the traditional syntax structure as it follows subject + verb + object.

WILL GIVE BRANLEYSIT Which sentence uses the underlined preposition correctly? A. When we arrive in Richmond, I will get off of this train. B. When we arrive in Richmond, I will get off this train. Question Resources


This particular excerpt, makes part of the poem “Aunt Imogen”, written by Edwin Arlington Robinson, and which was published inside his bigger work “Collected Poems”, in 1921. In essence, “Aunt Imogen” talks about the experiences lived by three young children and their mother every time their beloved Aunt Imogen, visits them once a year. However, the poem also remarks the difference between the woman Imogen wants to project to others, the funny and carefree person, and her true self, which is riddled with sadness for the fact that she cannot have what her sister has; motherhood. In stanza 4, the poem, however, shows that there is one person who is not swayed by the false self shown by Imogen and can see the truth of her heart; Young George. Through his eyes, and words, Imogen sees the true image inside her and seems to be reborn by the experience as she understands her desires and wishes and accepts that they will not be fulfilled. In this particular piece from that stanza, what the words of the child cause on Imogen is a feeling of pain, deep pain, as she is made forcefully aware of the truth inside and the sadness that has always been there, belying the image she wants others to see.

The Tail Julie immediately slipped on her new pants the moment she got out of bed. Still in her pajama top, she strutted in front of the mirror. They were just like Michelle’s, the prettiest girl in the seventh grade. She stuck one leg out to admire the way they fit her own leg. Denise is going to be so jealous, she thought. At breakfast she showed her mom three tops that went with the new pants. Her mom picked the yellow one and suggested she comb her hair back. “And take those studs out and wear something that dangles,” Julie’s mom called after her as she went back to her room to change. Waiting for the school bus, Julie’s friend Lola complimented her on her outfit. “Where’d you get those earrings?” she asked. Before Julie could answer, Derek, Lola’s ninth-grade brother, came up behind her and thumped one of her earrings. “Got a hot date today?” he teased her. Julie thought Derek was cute, but he always treated her like she was his little sister, too. At least he noticed my outfit, she thought. Lola rolled her eyes. “Like you’d know what a hot date was,” she said. In the halls before class, all Julie’s friends complimented her, and she gleamed, enjoying every word. At lunch, she went in the restroom. Several of the popular eighth graders were in there, and they made a point of ignoring her. Julie went in one of the stalls, and when she came out, unknown to her, a long piece of toilet paper was stuck to the bottom of her shoe. As she walked toward the cafeteria, several of the boys snickered. That’s odd, she thought, but she just ignored them. The same eighth grade girls she had seen in the restroom turned away, laughing. Suddenly Derek rushed up behind her and said, “You seem to have grown a tail since this morning. It doesn’t really go with your outfit.” When Julie turned around, she glimpsed the toilet paper and blushed. As she reached down to pull it off, Derek put his foot on the tail and pulled it off her shoe. “Thanks, Derek,” Julie said. “I can’t believe those other kids didn’t tell me.” He winked at her. “What are friends for? Let’s have lunch.” Which sentence from the passage supports the idea that Lola is sarcastic? A. “Where’d you get those earrings?” she asked. B. Julie’s friend Lola complimented her on her outfit. C. “Like you’d know what a hot date was,” she said. D. Denise is going to be so jealous, she thought.

C. “Like you’d know what a hot date was,” she said.
This is an example of sarcasm because she is saying that Derek does not know what a “hot date” would look like.

Read this excerpt from Little Brother and answer the following questions in complete sentences using proper grammar and punctuation: Marcus manages to flag down a vehicle and they get more than they bargained for… It was a military-looking Jeep, like an armored Hummer, only it didn’t have any military insignia on it. The car skidded to a stop just in front of me, and I jumped back and lost my balance and ended up on the road. I felt the doors open near me, and then saw a confusion of booted feet moving close by. I looked up and saw a bunch of military-looking guys in coveralls, holding big, bulky rifles and wearing hooded gas masks with tinted face-plates. I barely had time to register them before those rifles were pointed at me. I’d never looked down the barrel of a gun before, but everything you’ve heard about the experience is true. You freeze where you are, time stops, and your heart thunders in your ears. I opened my mouth, then shut it, then, very slowly, I held my hands up in front of me. The faceless, eyeless armed man above me kept his gun very level. I didn’t even breathe. Van was screaming something and Jolu was shouting and I looked at them for a second and that was when someone put a coarse sack over my head and cinched it tight around my windpipe, so quick and so fiercely I barely had time to gasp before it was locked on me. I was pushed roughly but dispassionately onto my stomach and something went twice around my wrists and then tightened up as well, feeling like baling wire and biting cruelly. I cried out and my own voice was muffled by the hood. I was in total darkness now and I strained my ears to hear what was going on with my friends. I heard them shouting through the muffling canvas of the bag, and then I was being impersonally hauled to my feet by my wrists, my arms wrenched up behind my back, my shoulders screaming. I stumbled some, then a hand pushed my head down and I was inside the Hummer. More bodies were roughly shoved in beside me. “Guys?” I shouted, and earned a hard thump on my head for my trouble. I heard Jolu respond, then felt the thump he was dealt, too. My head rang like a gong. “Hey,” I said to the soldiers. “Hey, listen! We’re just high school students. I wanted to flag you down because my friend was bleeding. Someone stabbed him.” I had no idea how much of this was making it through the muffling bag. I kept talking. “Listen—this is some kind of misunderstanding. We’ve got to get my friend to a hospital—” Someone went upside my head again. It felt like they used a baton or something—it was harder than anyone had ever hit me in the head before. My eyes swam and watered and I literally couldn’t breathe through the pain. A moment later, I caught my breath, but I didn’t say anything. I’d learned my lesson. What conflict is Marcus facing?

Based on the given text, the stage of identity development Marcus is experiencing is Identity Foreclosure. This identity development is dominant among teenagers. They tend to venture into a commitment without exploring other alternatives in reaching their desired goals.

Taken for a Ride by T. Herlinger Laurel and her best friend, Paula, had boarded the Seattle ferry at 9:00 that morning—the first day of Spring Break—stowing their backpacks in a locker and climbing to the top of the ship. They had watched from the stern as the Space Needle and other Seattle landmarks faded away and the San Juan Islands gradually appeared. It would be another few hours before they reached Canada, which left them plenty of time to explore the boat. In no time, Laurel befriended one of the ship’s stewards, Ronald, who oriented the girls a bit, pointing out the snack bar and naming the various geographical sights they were passing. Laurel was fast developing a crush on the boy, and he was flirting right back, telling jokes and spending more time with her and Paula than with other passengers. The trip was shaping up just fine—that is, until Laurel went to buy some chips and discovered her wallet was missing! “Paula, it’s just disappeared,” she desperately told her friend, “my passport, all my money, my mom’s credit card, everything!” Paula tried to remain calm and to offer some comfort. “Could you have left it in your backpack, in the locker?” Laurel shook her head, nearly in tears now, but they raced down to the lockers anyway and emptied out the contents of both their packs—no luck. Laurel started pacing the floor, in a panic. There was no way Customs in Canada would ever let her in without any identification, which meant her vacation was ruined. Just then, Ronald appeared out of nowhere—a welcome sight to the distraught girls. Paula related the predicament they were in, and Ronald offered to announce the lost wallet on the PA system, but Laurel begged him not to. She felt humiliated enough as it was without the whole ship knowing about it. “You probably just dropped it or misplaced it,” he suggested. “Let’s split up and search the ship’s decks. Laurel, you and I can search the upper level, and Paula, you search the lower, okay?” Paula was amenable to the plan and quickly began scouring the area around the lockers. Laura and Ronald headed upstairs to the upper deck. Five minutes into their searching, Laurel slumped down on a bench and wept in frustration. Then, to her amazement, Ronald sat beside her and promptly produced her wallet from the inside pocket of his vest! “Oh, thank goodness!” Laurel cried. “But where on earth did you find it?” “I had your wallet all along,” the steward confessed. “I knew you and your friend were inexperienced travelers, and I wanted to show you what an easy target you could be for pickpocketers. Always carry your wallet in an inside pocket, or deep in your backpack, okay?” Nodding solemnly as she wiped away her tears, Laurel promised that she would. It was a tough lesson, but not one this young traveler would soon forget. It was a tough lesson, but not one this young traveler would soon forget. Who is being referred to in this sentence? A.Paula B.the narrator C.Ronald D.Laurel

the correct answer is Laurel or D

2. The door squeaked loudly as she pushed it open. She paused, listening carefully.

3. Hearing nothing, she pushed the old door open just wide enough to slip through.

4. Before she closed the door, she glanced behind her. Fat white snowflakes fell in tight circles like dozens of icy ballerinas.

5. A thick blanket of snow already covered the grass and sidewalk. She would never make it home tonight.

6. She closed the door gently and it clicked close with a solid finality. She felt her heart sink to the pit of her stomach like a stone.

7. The foyer was lit soft, dim glow created from candles flickering along the lofty ceiling.

8. The light threw large, frightening shadows that forced her to stay close to the wall.

9. She walked tentatively down the hall, the heels of her shoes clicking sharply against the hard stone.

10. At the end of the hallway, she paused suddenly, unsure of which way to turn. The left fork was long and dark. She could hear the foreboding laughter of children and the melody of a piano.
