What is the School Subject? If you want help with your homework, this question seems not to require a social studies or English tutor. Is this biology, math, or what is your subject?

1 and 2 are correct. #3 is confusing. There is only one black dog and there are more than one white dogs? It's awkwardly worded.

Tutors are volunteers and not always here all the time. I agree with B. I hope you got it right, but that's what Wilde did a lot, exaggerating people's silly ideas to point out how silly they are.

But "we would" is not past tense. "We'd", if it's a form of past tense, means "we had". "We had gone to the store before we arrived at Grandmother's house." "We'd gone to the store..."

You seem to contradict your assertion that each piece of literature is independent of its historical context. Think about it. If it is essential to understand the colonial context of "Heart of Darkness", how does it stand by itself outside of its historical context?

They are both fine, and mean the same (action, in that they obtained a license, etc., in 2009). #1 is more proper, #2 somewhat more colloquial, but both are correct and in common usage.

Yes, the plural is appropriate, assuming he takes pictures of sunrises on different days. If he's taking multiple pictures of a single day's sunrise, then the singular is appropriate. #2: No, that is not suitable. It doesn't make sense. A suitable response would be...

That might be something to look into, yes. I must ask, too, if there is any evidence that restricting people of any age group to their homes after dark would reduce crime? Are people under 18 out there commiting murder and mayhem at night.

As I said, beginning a sentence with a conjunction is common. Traditionally, it was thought to be a grammatical error, but has become more acceptable. I must respectfully disagree with Writeacher about pronouns. I see no problem. It seems clear to me that "he" and &...
June 15, 2016

Starting a sentence with a conjunction (and, but, however, etc.) is not considered proper grammar. We do it sometimes, but it's not "correct". Sentences three and four use the conjunction more correctly, but no comma is needed after the conjunction. "Whitey&...
