Oh, I'm sorry! I misread the question. Yes, light is nearly opposite.

Certainly Ms. Angelou is very self-confident in "Life Doesn't Frighten Me." It's very typical of the self-confidence she learned in her life. I think you're correct.

I don't know what forms of kinship are prevalent in your local society, Jimmy. Matrilineal means that the maternal (female) lines of kinship are dominant. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, etc., "rule." In other, patrilineal, societies, fathers (men) have sway. In ...

You are most welcome. Pronouns are really not hard, but there are so many uses for them, I understand. Perhaps a good way to remember possessive pronouns is to think of typing with YOUR hands/fingers. They are not Susie's or Jim's, they are YOURS. Susie may use her own...

Austin, "any" is an indefinite pronoun. It refers to no specific toy (in this case), but "toys" is the antecedent. "Hers" is possessive. Yours, mine, ours, hers, his...all possessive pronouns.

It reads comfortably, if that's what you need. I'm not sure how being nonchalant is imaginative, though, from this paragraph. Innocent, yes. You haven't demonstrated imagination.

Google bias in news reporting. There is a web site called FACTCHECK that catches media biases as well as politicians telling untruths. Let me look around some more.

It seems to me that would depend on the point of view. A real news company is not supposed to have a political alignment in reporting news, though. It may have an editorial bias in opinion pieces or interpretation of the news, but should report without bias. To bias the ...

#1 is not a fragment. Both clauses have a verb and a subject, so both are complete sentences. I'd call that a run sentence. #2 you are correct. The second clause explains the first. I would not say you would be wrong to say run-on, though. #3 is more clearly a compound ...

No, I don't think so. Artists often are not to worried about negative public reaction as they create. Remember that 19th century governments were usually very strong, authoritarian, often monarchies, and openly criticizing them might have unwanted effects.
