The correct answer is – Andes Mountains.

The Andes Mountain Range is a result of a oceanic-continental convergence. This mountain range stretches alongside the western coast of the South American continent, in close proximity of the convergent boundary between the South American tectonic plate, which is continental one, and the Nazca tectonic plate, which is oceanic one.

The Nazca plate is subducting beneath the South American plate, and it managed to lift up the land in close proximity to the boundary. As the land was lifting up more and more, over time a mountain range was formed, the biggest and dominant one in South America, the Andean Mountain Range.

Which excerpt from The Great Gatsby best indicates that Nick is not fully content with his life? He didn’t say any more, but we’ve always been unusually communicative in a reserved way, and I understood that he meant a great deal more than that. Father agreed to finance me for a year, and after various delays I came East, permanently, I thought, in the spring of twenty-two. Instead of being the warm center of the world, the Middle West now seemed like the ragged edge of the universe—so I decided to go East and learn the bond business. I had a dog—at least I had him for a few days until he ran away—and an old Dodge and a Finnish woman, who made my bed and cooked breakfast and muttered Finnish wisdom to herself over the electric stove.

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 🙂

Read the following excerpt from H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds, and answer the question that follows: Yet so vain is man, and so blinded by his vanity, that no writer, up to the very end of the nineteenth century, expressed any idea that intelligent life might have developed there far, or indeed at all, beyond its earthly level. Nor was it generally understood that since Mars is older than our earth, with scarcely a quarter of the superficial area and remoter from the sun, it necessarily follows that it is not only more distant from time’s beginning but nearer its end. Which of the following details comes from supporting evidence? Man is blinded by his own vanity. No one has traveled to Mars. The writer lived in the 19th century. Mars is farther from the sun than Earth.

I believe that the answer is that man is so blinded by his own vanity. Do you need a reason why, as well?

Which rhetorical device is used in this excerpt from Mark Twain’s “The Invalid’s Story”? I belong in Cleveland, Ohio. One winter’s night, two years ago, I reached home just after dark, in a driving snow-storm, and the first thing I heard when I entered the house was that my dearest boyhood friend and schoolmate, John B. Hackett, had died the day before, and that his last utterance had been a desire that I would take his remains home to his poor old father and mother in Wisconsin. I was greatly shocked and grieved, but there was no time to waste in emotions; I must start at once. I took the card, marked “Deacon Levi Hackett, Bethlehem, Wisconsin,” and hurried off through the whistling storm to the railway station. Arrived there I found the long white-pine box which had been described to me; I fastened the card to it with some tacks, saw it put safely aboard the express car, and then ran into the eating-room to provide myself with a sandwich and some cigars. When I returned, presently, there was my coffin-box back again, apparently, and a young fellow examining around it, with a card in his hands, and some tacks and a hammer! I was astonished and puzzled. He began to nail on his card, and I rushed out to the express car, in a good deal of a state of mind, to ask for an explanation. But no—there was my box, all right, in the express car; it hadn’t been disturbed. [The fact is that without my suspecting it a prodigious mistake had been made. I was carrying off a box of guns which that young fellow had come to the station to ship to a rifle company in Peoria, Illinois, and he had got my corpse! Just then the conductor sung out “All aboard,” and I jumped into the express car and got a comfortable seat on a bale of buckets. A)euphemism B)allusion C)anecdote D)apostrophe

Answer:

C)anecdote

Explanation:

An apostrophe is a figure of speech represented by an exclamation, used when the speaker is talking to someone who is not present. Allusion is some sort of reference. Euphemism is the use of an expression that substitutes another one considered impolite, but meant to mean the same thing.

What the author does in this excerpt is to tell a story, most likely to make a point. The story happened two years ago, in this case. Which fits in the idea of an anecdote.

Anecdote is basically an interesting short story, or a noticeable event, usually mentioned to support a claim or to reinforce a point being made.

The following stanza from John Donne’s poem, “A Valediction Forbidding Mourning,” is known for its use of what poetic device? “If they be two, they are two so As stiff twin compasses are two; Thy soul the fixed foot, makes no show To move, but doth, if th’other do.” A. Alliteration B. Consonance C. Conceit D. Caesura I think it’s c, but it could also be a.EDIT: nevermind, i marked c and got it right, so if anyone needed this answer, the answer is c.

Answer: I would contend that the right answer is the C) Conceit.

Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that by comparing his soul and that of his lover to two fixed compasses, the speaker in this poem is using a conceit, which is a figure of speech that establishes a witty comparison between two differing things or situations—much like a simile or a metaphor. As a metaphysical poet, John Donne (1572-1631) often made brilliant and ingenious comparisons or established analogies between physical objects and inmaterial or spiritual things, such as the compasses and the souls in this stanza. This is called a metaphysical conceit. Two souls are like two stiff compasses, which only move in unison—if one moves then the other moves too.

Write me a paper on argument that tend to appeal to emotion

Appeal to emotion or argumentum ad passiones or appeal to feels is a logical fallacy characterized by the manipulation of the recipient’s emotions in order to win an argument, especially in the absence of factual evidence.[1] This kind of appeal to emotion is a type of red herring and encompasses several logical fallacies, including appeal to consequences, appeal to fear, appeal to flattery, appeal to pity, appeal to ridicule, appeal to spite, and wishful thinking.
Instead of facts, persuasive language is used to develop the foundation of an appeal to emotion-based argument. Thus, the validity of the premises that establish such an argument does not prove to be verifiable.[2]
Appeals to emotion are intended to draw visceral feelings from the acquirer of the information. And in turn, the acquirer of the information is intended to be convinced that the statements that were presented in the fallacious argument are true; solely on the basis that the statements may induce emotional stimulation such as fear, pity and joy. Though these emotions may be provoked by an appeal to emotion fallacy, effectively winning the argument, substantial proof of the argument is not offered, and the argument’s premises remain invalid.

Why do the allusions to whitman in galway kinnell’s “Vapor trail reflected in the frog pond” create tension?

The old watch: their
thick eyes
puff and foreclose by the moon. The young, heads
trailed by the beginnings of necks,
shiver,
in the guarantee they shall be bodies.
In the frog pond
the vapor trail of a SAC bomber creeps,
I hear its drone, drifting, high up
in immaculate ozone.
2
And I hear,
coming over the hills, America singing,
her varied carols I hear:
crack of deputies’ rifles practicing their aim on stray dogs at night,
sput of cattleprod,
TV going on about the smells of the human body,
curses of the soldier as he poisons, burns, grinds, and stabs
the rice of the world,
with open mouth, crying strong, hysterical curses.
eyes crinkled shut at almost seeing
the drifting sun that gives us

Balance the following reaction. A coefficient of “1” is understood. Choose option “blank” for the correct answer if the coefficient is “1.” CH3OH + O2 → CO2 + H2O

[ad_1]

Answer: 35.24 grams of O_2 are required to produce the given amount of Zinc oxide.

Explanation:

To calculate the number of moles, we use the formula:

text{Number of moles}=frac{text{Given mass}}{text{Molar mass}} ….(1)

Given mass of zinc oxide = 358.5 g

Molar mass of zinc oxide = 81.38 g/mol

Putting values in above equation, we get:

text{Moles of zinc oxide}=frac{358.5g}{81.38g/mol}=4.405mol

For the reaction of formation of zinc oxide, the equation follows:

2Zn+O_2rightarrow 2ZnO

By Stoichiometry of the reaction:

2 moles of zinc oxide is produced from 1 mole of oxygen gas

So, 4.405 moles of zinc oxide is produced from = frac{1}{2}times 4.405mol=2.2025mol of oxygen.

Now, to calculate the mass of oxygen gas, we use equation 1:

Molar mass of oxygen gas = 16 g/mol

Moles of oxygen gas = 2.2025 mol

Putting values in equation 1, we get:

2.2025mol=frac{text{Mass of oxygen}}{16g/mol}\\text{Mass of oxygen}=35.24g

Hence, 35.24 grams of O_2 are required to produce the given amount of Zinc oxide.
