USING SEMICOLONS AND COLONS CORRECTLY Correct the punctuation in the following sentences by re-writing the sentence, adding semicolons and colons where they are needed and by changing other punctuation and capitalization as needed. Example 1. The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. Corrected version: The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II: coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. In Washington, D.C., we visited three museums in a single day the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

Answer:

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

Explanation:

The correct rewriting of the sentence will be –

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

The use of the comma right after Washington is wrong as it is the name of a single particular place so it should instead be written as Washington D. C.

Also, a semicolon has to be inserted in between day and the. Since the sentence lists a number of places, the use of a colon is necessary to show the list of the places visited.

So, the changes in the sentence are-

(a) remove the comma (,) in between Washington and D.

(b) put a colon (:) right next to the word “day”.

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

The original OPEC members of the chart were Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Kuwait, which founded the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries along with Iran and Iraq on September 1960.

OPEC can have a great influence on the oil market, especially if it decides to reduce or increase its production level. 43% of world’s oil production and 81% of world’s oil reserves are in member countries.

OPEC also concentrates all the necessary capacity for oil production in the world, which, de facto, converts the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries into the central bank of the oil market.

Answer:

false

Explanation:

From 1927, the Soviet Union introduced the concept of collective farms. The purpose of collectivization was to make individual lands and labor pass to collective farms, called kolkhozes. The workers received no wages but received part of what they produced on the farm, just to cover their needs and those of their families. Soviet leaders hoped that collectivization would significantly increase the food supply for the urban population, meaning that at that time it was believed that collective farms were the most efficient way to produce food.

This was not the case, however, and collective farms proved to be a major problem.

Collectivization created a profound trauma for the Russian peasantry. The forced confiscation of meat and bread led to riots. There were even peasants who chose to sacrifice their cattle rather than hand them over to collective farms. Sometimes the Soviet government used the army to suppress the revolts.

The ancient traditions of the Russian peasantry were eventually destroyed in the process. The peasants, who used to be interested in the fruits of their work, were losing interest in the kolkhozes. The early years of collectivization proved catastrophic. In 1932 and 1933 there was a great famine in the country that claimed the lives of eight million people, largely due to collectivization.

Hey there!

A run-on sentence is a sentence that contains multiple ideas that could be split into multiple sentences but continues on without the use of transitions or punctuation. 

Notice in the last sentence I just typed that I used the word “but” to link two related ideas together. I could have split that sentence into two, but kept it a single sentence and used a transition since the idea would flow better that way. Run-on sentences don’t use a transition and just keep rambling on until an eventual stop. 

Let’s take a look at your answer choices:

“The concert started and the music was incredible.” Notice how the word “and” is used to link the ideas. This isn’t a run-on sentence. 

“Holidays always go by too quickly since I get those days off.” Again, “since” is used to link the two ideas together. This isn’t a run-on sentence, either. 

They danced for hours; they never felt remotely tired.” This is an example of a sentence that links two ideas together using punctuation. You could replace the semicolon with a period and the sentence would retain its sense and meaning. Since this is the purpose of semicolons, this isn’t a run-on sentence either. 

“Tomas was frustrated during class he forgot his book report.” There’s a word missing between these two ideas. Some sort of punctuation (a semicolon) or a transition (something like “since” or “because” would be good) is needed for this to make sense. 

Your answer will be D. 

Hope this helped you out! 🙂

Read this line from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven”:Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December Which version most accurately displays the stressed syllables (shown in all capital letters) in this line of poetry? A.AH, DISTINCTLY, I remember, it was in THE BLEAK DECEMBER B.Ah, DIStincTLY I REmemBER it WAS in THE bleak DEcemBER C.AH, disTINCtly I reMEMber IT was IN the BLEAK DeCEMber D.Ah, distincTLY, I rememBER, it was in THE bleak DecemBER

[ad_1]

The correct answer is C. AH, disTINCtly I reMEMber IT was IN the BLEAK DeCEMber.

Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, “The Raven,” is written in the trochaic octameter. Let us break down what that means:

1. trochaic – this refers to the meter of the poem, trochee. Trochee is the type of meter which consists of two syllables, where the first one is stressed (written in capital letters), and the second one is unstressed (written in lower letters), like in option C

2. octameter – this refers to the number of syllables within the entire line. Octa means eight, and one meter consists of two syllables, so if you multiply those two, you will get the exact number of syllables in one line, which is sixteen.

The standard deviation σ is the square root of the variance:σ=V(X)−−−−−√=E(X2)−(E(X)2−−−−−−−−−−−−−√)where E(X)is the expected value of X. By definition,E(X)=∑x∈Dxp(x)where D is the values X may take (in this case D={0,1,2,3,4,5})and p(x)=P(X=x)is the probability that X equals x.Then,E(X)==0⋅p(0)+1⋅p(1)+2⋅p(2)+3⋅p(3)+4⋅p(4)+5⋅p(5)2.15.

a golf ball travels a distance of 600 feet as measured along the ground and reaches an altitude of 200 feet. If the origin represents the tee and the ball travels along a parabolic path that opens downward, find an equation for the path of the golf ball. …?

Answer:

y=1.32x-0.0022x^{2}

Step-by-step explanation:

Let the standard equation of parabola be y=ax^{2}+bx+c ……. (1)

Let y be the altitude of the ball and x be the distance traveled by the ball.

Now by putting the points one by one, we get the required equation.

first point = (0,0)

golf ball travels a distance of 600 feet  along the ground. Therefore point = (600,0)

At altitude of 200, it travels the distance of 300 feet(mid point) = (300,200)

By putting y=0 and x=0 in (1),

we get c=0,

By putting y=0 and x=600 we get

0 = 360000a+600b …………..(2)

By putting y=200 and x=300, we get

200=90000a+300b …………….(3)

Solving (2) and(3) we get, a=-0.0022 and b = 1.32

So the required equation is :

y= =0.0022x^{2}+1.32x

Lets call these folks “p” 
At that point you need to work out the components of the main coefficient (the number before the most astounding force of x): 

Lets call this person “q” 
At that point you need to make all the conceivable divisions you can with: 
±p/q 
Since q is only 1, we are fortunate, so the conceivable normal roots are:

Your paper so far doesn’t sound like a interview essay. But i’ll do my best.

You are glued to the TV watching all 13 episodes. (you should start with a question.) You (might ) have sat in your room for 24+ hours straight (trying) to finish all of the episodes. When you(r) finish(ed), you start to think about all of these questions. What will Hannah’s parents do when they receive/listen to the tapes? Will Bryce go to jail after raping Hannah and Jessica? And you hope for a second season so your questions will be answered. 

(make this your first paragraph or earlier. because not everyone knows the show) 13 Reasons Why is a Netflix show that revolves around a 17-year-old high school student, Hannah Baker. She takes her own life and leaves behind 13 tape recordings containing the 13 (delete the 13) reasons why she killed herself. (try: The story follows Clay Jensen who is listening to the taps in present day, and Hannah baker and what happened. As the series goes on story opens up more to Hannah’s decision) It follows a teenager, Clay Jensen, in his quest to uncover the story behind his friend and crush, Hannah Baker, and her decision to end her life. 

(is this your thought?) “I think that Hannah’s parents will cry when they receive the tapes because they didn’t know what was going on so they weren’t able to help her” one person said. (tell us why) Hannah’s parents were not really in her life. Her parents weren’t home half of the time and when they were they would fight over the bills and money issues. In the show, Hannah was at home with her parents and she told them and they needed to move because of the way Hannah was feeling from everyone at her school. 13 Reasons(.) Why is (it) so popular(?) (mostly) because most students agree that it is based on real-life events. (you could use some more facts, and questions.)

In this passage of “Reunion”, we hear about Marty, a young boy whose family, has all gathered at his home to celebrate the memorial of his family´s immigration from St. Croix into New York. The boy has just awoken from sleep and sees the invasion of his room by all his male cousins and as he wakes up more, becomes aware as well of the sounds being made downstairs by his older relatives, as well as his female cousins. He likens what he listens and he sees to what he experiences as a volunteer at a dog shelter, making a comparisson through this metaphor of the dogs, to his family and the way that the different members relate to one another. This can be seen in the following portion of the passage: “He liked working in the smaller dog area where all the older dogs looked our for the puppies, just like family, just like his family of older members looking out for the younger ones.” The impact that this extended metaphor has is that it generates a sense of tenderness in the reader, as dogs tend to be animals that are considered cute, and most of all, the image of the older ones, regardless of if they are blood-related to the puppies, take care of them either way. It also generates an image of the level of connection in Marty´s family, the level of love and connection, regardless of age. Finally, there is the sense of authority and the desire of the young to be accompanied by the older, cooler, dogs, which is a metaphor for the way that the smallest cousin, Andre, feels at being allowed to sleep in the company of his older cousins: “… but Andre didn´t care. He was grateful to be with the big dogs, as he called his cousins. It made Marty smile as he recalled how Andre beamed when he found out he would bunk with the bigger, older cousins, and then practically begged to sleep in the sleeping bag…”
