Homework Help: ENGLISH

Posted by Luis on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 at 11:33am.

I need to make sure I understand this. I need to rewrite each sentence twice, once as a periodic sentence and once as a cumulative sentence. To me, both look like cumulative sentences though, so I am a little confused. If someone could check my work I will be very grateful.

1)Obviously not understanding reporters, the politician did not know their names, did not answer their questions, and did not read their stories.

(periodic)The politician did not know their names, did not answer their questions, or read their stories obviously not understanding reporters.

(cumulative)The politician did not understand reporters; he did not know their names, answer any questions or read their stories.

2)Able to think only of my motherís surgery the next morning, I could not even eat my dinner, much less get any sleep, nor could I do my homework.

(periodic)I could do nothing else; not eat dinner, complete my homework or even sleep while thinking of my motherís surgery the next morning.

(cumulative)I was only able to think of my motherís surgery the next morning; I could not eat, sleep or do my homework.
