My grandfather, who lost his short-term memory sometime during the first Eisenhower Administration, calls me into his study because he wants to tell me the story he’s never told anybody before again. . . . My grandfather slams the door and motions me to the chair in front of his desk. I’ll be thirteen in two weeks. “There’s something I want to tell you, son,” he says. “Something I’ve never told anybody. You think you’re ready? You think you’ve got the gumption?” “I think so.” “Think so?” “I know so, sir. I know I’ve got the gumption.” . . . “It was late,” he says. “Someone knocked on my stateroom door. I leaped up. In those days I slept in uniform—shoes, too.” My grandfather smiles. His face is so perfectly round that his smile looks like a gash in a basketball. I smile back. “Don’t smile,” he says. “Just because I’m smiling, don’t assume I couldn’t kill you right now. Know that about a man.” Source: Orner, Peter. “The Raft.” The Atlantic Online. The Atlantic Monthly Company, Apr. 2000. Web. 10 May 2011. Which point of view does the text use?

The elimination period also called waiting time is the
amount of time that should pass or be satisfied before the person can enjoy the
benefits of the disability plan.

Since the elimination period is 30 days or 1 month and
the insured is only disabled for about 3.5 months, therefore the benefits he
will receive would only be equivalent to 2.5 months worth of benefits.
Calculating for the maximum money he can received:

Maximum amount of money he can receive = monthly
indemnity benefit * number of months

Maximum amount of money he can receive = ($500 / month) *
(2.5 months)

Maximum
amount of money he can receive = $1,250

Okay, I will give you ideas. Lets make this guy’s name Marsel, and lets say he is single, as he is around 25, and lives with his parents, and works as a surgeon. He is a tall, thin man who is a genius. His income is higher than average, and is at the higher end of the income spectrum. His business is to treat patients by cutting open their body and performing the necessary operations. He has to go to perform surgery at any time he is called, however likes spending time with his parents teaching them about the human body. His attitude toward religion is neutral, he practices it, but doesn’t have much time to practice it. Toward politics he doesn’t care except for picking the candidate of the party that he prefers. Toward people in general he isn’t very social, but if he sees someone hurt, he has sympathy towards them. He doesn’t mind animals, and doesn’t care much about them, except if the animal needs something.

For the son, he is a short and chubby 3 year old boy who is curious to see new things and is playful. He makes his mom take care of him a lot.

PS: Since this doesn’t make sense, if you have to, you can say that he is married.

Hope this helps!
