Read the excerpt from “A Simple Way to Create Suspense”. For instance, heading toward a movie review program, I remember we asked: Who was the studio’s first choice for the Harry Callahan role in “Dirty Harry”? We knew most viewers would be intrigued. (What, Clint Eastwood wasn’t the first choice?) But—and this was the lesson—the success of the tactic didn’t depend on intrigue. Even viewers with no interest at all stuck around to find out. Humans are hard-wired. They need to know. Even viewers who knew the answer for sure stuck around, in order to be gratified. The gap was bridged, and the danger averted. (It was Frank Sinatra. You waited, right?) Which best describes this excerpt? The central idea of this excerpt is that Clint Eastwood was not the original choice for the Dirty Harry movie. The central idea of this excerpt is that intrigue is the most important way to create suspense. The author uses an analogy to compare his readers to the characters of a Hollywood movie. The author uses a personal anecdote to show that audiences are willing to wait for an answer.

1. The answer is “C”.

“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.

2. The answer is “A”.

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.

Why should you wait until you return from a vacation to post pictures and discussions about your trip?

[ad_1]

The correct answer is A. A memoir relies on the narrator’s memory, while a biography relies on various other sources and D. A memoir talks about a limited experience in a person’s life, while a biography deals with a larger part

Explanation:

A memoir is a memory or set of memories written by an individual about specific events or moments that are part of the individual’s life, a memoir does not aim at telling the whole story life of a person but just one or more important moments in the person’s life. On the other hand, a biography is a description of the life of an individual including information about his/her family, education, profession, death, among others, which is usually written by someone else, instead of the individual itself.

This implies memoirs emerge from the memory, feeling and experience on the individual and focused on limited experiences because they do not tell all the information in a person life but such relevant events; on the other hand, biographies relly not only on the memory of the person but other sources such as documents or family testimonies and aims at describing the life of the individual as a whole and not only few events as in the case of memoirs.

To set up your fish aquarium, you must first decide where to put your tank. You should place your fish tank on a stable, sturdy piece of furniture, such as a table. Pick a spot away from direct sunlight, as direct sunlight can harm some fish. After placing your tank in its chosen spot, place a small layer of pebbles at the bottom of the aquarium. Then, put a few underwater plants or other decorations on top of the pebble layer. After adding decorations, fill the tank with water. Because the water will make the tank heavy, fill the tank by using a clean pitcher filled with water. That way, you will not have to move your tank after it is full of water. Finally, put your new fish into your aquarium. Which of these details does NOT support this paragraph’s main idea? A) Fill the tank with water until it reaches about three inches from the top. B) Before you buy a pet you should consider the care and attention it will need. C) The pebble layer should be about three inches thick and cover the entire bottom.

Read the sentence. Our band practices on Mondays at Josef’s Thursdays at Lena’s and Saturdays at my house. What is the correct way to punctuate the sentence? Our band practices on Mondays at Josef’s, Thursdays at Lena’s, and Saturdays at my house. Our band practices on: Mondays at Josef’s, Thursdays at Lena’s, and Saturdays at my house. Our band practices on Mondays at Josef’s; Thursdays at Lena’s; and Saturdays at my house. Our band practices on Mondays: at Josef’s,Thursdays: at Lena’s, and Saturdays: at my house.

The correct sentence is “Our band practices on Mondays at Josef’s, Thursdays at Lena’s, and Saturdays at my house.”

The times and places where the band practices need to be separated from one another to avoid confusion. For this we can simply use a comma. We would only use a semicolon to separate the items if the different items also included commas. For example, “The different plants include a plant with yellow, white, and pink flowers; a plant with blue, purple, and pink flowers; and a plant with red, white, and yellow flowers. Here, the semicolon separates the different plants to avoid confusion. Also remember that a colon should only be used after a complete sentence.

We ought to take a look at these windows. COUNTY ATTORNEY (scoffingly). Oh, windows! SHERIFF. We’ll be right out, Mr. Hale. (Hale goes outside. The Sheriff follows the County Attorney into the other room. Then Mrs. Hale rises, hands tight together, looking intensely at Mrs. Peters, whose eyes take a slow turn, finally meeting Mrs. Hale’s. A moment Mrs. Hale holds her, then her own eyes point the way to where the box is concealed. Suddenly Mrs. Peters throws back quilt pieces and tries to put the box in the bag she is wearing.

Mrs. Hale snatches the box and puts it in the pocket of her big coat. Enter County Attorney and Sheriff.) COUNTY ATTORNEY (facetiously). Well, Henry, at least we found out that she was not going to quilt it. She was going to—what is it you call it, ladies! MRS. HALE (her hand against her pocket). We call it—knot it, Mr. Henderson.

Sara left home at 11:15am. It took her 5 minutes to drive to the mall. She shopped for 55 minutes and spent 1.5 hours at the beauty shop. She had to wait 15 minutes to get food at the take-out restaurant. It took her another 10 minutes to drive home. If she drove straight home, what time did she return?

[ad_1]

Answer:

Option 1.

Step-by-step explanation:

As per table given

Option A. Range between the maximum and minimum values for taco truck one will be the mean value of the truck 1 for 10 days

= (721+658+437+527+601+468+425+431+508+515)/10 = 5291/10 = 529.10

Range between maximum and minimum value for truck 2

= (462+471+426+654+647+732+701+684+632+698)/10 = 6107/10 = 610.70

Therefore the range between maximum and minimum values for truck 2 is greater than truck 1.

Option B. is not true because food truck 1 sold the most on day 1 and truck 2 on day 6.

Option C. is not true because on average truck 2 sold more tacos than truck 1 over the period of 10 days.

Option D. Median of truck 1 is 601 while for truck 2 is 647 so this option is also not valid.

Therefore option A. is the answer.
