They all mean the same thing.
First, ask yourself why people believe in God. Do you have any ideas? Does your text tell you why people believe in God? Then put that in your own words. I can't tell you why people believe in God because there may be many reasons. What do you think? Then ask yourself why ...
What is your question?
The antecedent is "person". "the" and 'very" are adjectives defining which person.
No, I cannot write a paragraph about your weekend. Do you have a question about this assignment?
With the word "whose", this is not two sentences. It is one. To make it two sentences, begin the second sentence with "her". "Whose" is an interrogative pronoun, "Whose paintings are those?" and a relative pronoun, introducing a clause ...
Read the Constitution to find out how it can be amended, your question #1. Damon posted the link.
I guess you have to read the story to find out. I have not read it. Perhaps another tutor has. Have you read it?
Texas state history
What do you think? http://www.oxfordreference.com/view/10.1093/oi/authority.20110803095344859
I agree with all four answers!
I think your answer is the best of the four choices, yes. :)
Since we can't see the image, we have no way of knowing. Images can't be posted here. If you tell us the artist's name and the name of the work, maybe we can find it on line and help you.
And your answer is?
What questions have you stumped?
What is the assignment? What are you supposed to do?
Yes, all can mean the same thing. "Bade" (the past tense of "bid") is obsolete in this sense. To "tell" someone is to "bid" them to do something, but we don't use it that way any more.
If there is more than one set of words in parentheses, use the plural.
Actually, #1 is acceptable. #3 doesn't really make sense, so I find it unacceptable. "Being sick" and "Because he was sick" do mean the same thing. To rephrase #3, you might write, "Despite being sick..." or "Although he was sick..."...
Ethics and Communication
How about people who demand freedom to practice their religious beliefs, then protest when a mosque or synagogue is proposed in their community because they don't believe in Islam or Judaism?
World History (CHECK ANSWERS!)
Your answer is probably correct in that his code is the earliest we have a complete record of. There were others, even earlier, but we have only fragments of them that have survived. His was thought to be the first such written code of laws, but now we think there we think ...
I also must note that APA guidelines indicate that the on-line address should be complete, beginning with http:. The "doi" number is not a complete web address, so in that way both A and B are incorrect.
Writeacher is correct. It's very hard to tell here. Italics for the title of the publication (book, journal, etc.) do not show up here. And, in A above, I can't tell whether there is a chapter or article within the book that is called "Survival" or whether ...
Actually, I may be missing something. Both look correct to me. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/07/
Actually, no. The idea was looking out the window? The bear was running along the road when it came out from the trees? How can a boy be walking and jumping at the same time? They all need to be clearer about who was doing the looking, running, etc. "While I was walking ...
A secret is a secret. Government agencies may classify secrets, but they are all still secrets. We don't usually refer to a secret as having degrees or rankings.
Both are fine.
I think because it doesn't make sense to say, "Spend is use money..." It does make sense to say, or write, "Spend is to use money..." It could also be properly (sensibly) phrased, "Spend is the use of money to buy or pay for something." ...
"Write down" is redundant. I assume it means to write on paper, but that's what writing is, putting some ideas in a form that others can read (as opposed to writing in air, I suppose). What kind of "title" are you trying to write? The title of a book or...
Regardless of which superhero is being seen, to decide what his/her expression means might vary from viewer to viewer. Is that analysis? Look up the word. Look up all the choices if you are unsure.
You're in a gray area. It could be either or both. I'm unable to say which your teacher/program will find correct. http://www.ehow.com/about_5047508_health-mental-social-physical-definitons.html
This can't be answered here. An artist may use any number of techniques to prompt the viewer's eye to move. Your course or program seems to have one specific one in mind. I'd advise that you re-read your text materials or class notes very carefully to see exactly ...

Which war and in what nation?
Have you read the articles? You must read them, evaluate what seems biased and what seems to be accurate and unbiased reporting. Look for value judgements in both articles, a sure indication of bias. If one praises actions taken in the revolution, does it indicate bias? If one...
We have no idea why the attack at Nice matters to you. Only you know that. Does it matter at all? If not, explain why. If it does matter, explain why. We'll be glad to critique your response.
Someone will be glad to check your answer.
Hint: If the president's power is "checked" and "balanced", does that increase or decrease his/her power?
Your text materials might also be a good source. If you have better things to do than read them, you may fail your class, and deserve to fail.
Yes, Writeteacher's advice is excellent. Please follow it. As for the question you're having trouble with here, bobpursley is correct in that none of the answers is clearly worded or complete. B is the best answer, I think. No government can succeed for a long time ...
I respectfully disagree. Voters can and do re-elect office-holders. Some serve for many years. If the elected officials are to serve the people, they must be answerable to the people. If they do not serve in the best interests of the governed, the governed can "fire"...
No. Not B. The states each had their own governments already. The Articles established a national government, didn't they?
You're welcome. Keep in mind that other tutors/teachers might have a different "take". It used to be that beginning a sentence with a conjunction ("and", "but", etc.) was considered bad grammar. Now it's more acceptable. I still think the...
In casual writing, I think "and so" is okay. In more formal writing, I might prefer "therefore", or "as a result", or merely, "so". In any case, it really isn't necessary at all. The sentence could begin, "He did just that..."
Have you read the book? I highly recommend it. This does not "give" you the answer to this question (you have to read the book), but may help you understand it: http://www.bookrags.com/studyguide-the-screwtape-letters/#gsc.tab=0
You may find your answer here: http://www.ushistory.org/paine/commonsense/index.htm
Which pamphlet? Mr. Paine wrote a good many of them, but none (to my knowledge)about conquering Native Americans.
We'll be glad to check your answer. Your text materials probably explain this.
1-2, 2, and 3 all seem to mean the same thing. #1 does not mean exactly the same thing. It means that the popular bag was designed by "her". The others suggest that the bag is popular BECAUSE it was designed by "her" (a famous designer whose designs are ...
How does your text describe an organization design model? How does your text suggest it can be used?
This question seems like something that is discussed in your text materials. I could offer my own suggestions, but they probably won't be the same as your text describes. I recommend reading your text carefully, and taking notes, before you try to formulate an answer that ...
I agree that there is more than one good answer. We can't know which will be considered correct by your teacher or education program.
Social Studies (check my answers)
1. I think there is a better answer. 2. There rights? Where, over there in the bushes somewhere? The colonists felt if violated their rights. 3. Correct.
Apparently none of the English tutors here have read the book. (I have read others by McBride.) I would suggest you consider a chapter in which cultures obviously blend, as in food or other manifestations of white and black subcultures. You may well have it in the church-going...
I really do not have even a rough number to give you. I suggest that your text materials have such a number, or it's been covered in your class. It was quite a (relatively) high number, but I don't have access to it.
It looks like this is your homework, not ours. Someone will be glad to check your answer.
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?
Socials Studies (Help please)
What colonies? When and where?
English - Literary Device
No, it is not a simile. http://literarydevices.net/simile/
Yes, they are correct in that the bread and butter, needle and thread, cup and saucer are a single pair of items referred to as one item.
I think you are right.
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.
Both are correct. I like #2 better, though.
I advise you to read the story, or (if you have), reread that part of it to find out. This is your assignment. We can't do it for you.
Yes, all three are grammatically correct, and are logically correct.
Yes, all are grammatically correct, and all three are logically correct. :)
It does not say he was on his way to the White House; he could have been going anywhere. It says Chicago was a variation on the route he had planned, whatever that was. There was a "special" (unscheduled?) meeting in that city that he wanted to attend. It means ...
Is it correct? What do you think about these questions? We'll be glad to check your answers.
Note that I responded within 20 minutes of your post. I check in here from time to time, but soon must go to the store and do some tidying up around my house, and I expect the morning newspaper to be delivered soon, and expect a friend will drop by for tea and a bagel, so will...
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?
I think this will give you some insight: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FranceUnited_Kingdom_relations
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...
What does your text say about this topic? This is a very complex issue that has been studied. There are several ways of looking at it. What I studied when I was in school might be considered incorrect by your teacher or the people who wrote your text materials. Us your ...
I'm a bit confused here. Bre, is that long passage quoted from your text materials, or something you wrote? It is generalized, whoever wrote it. It's pretty accurate, in that there is always a dichotomy between traditional culture and modernization, whether the ...
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.
What does the activity of young people during daylight hours have to do with a curfew? I think there are better choices.
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 &...
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&...
Either "grew" or "increased" is good. They mean the same thing in this context. The sentence is grammatical.
Well, which one celebrates workers and work?
Yes, they are all suitable.
In this case there should be a modified before "master". "When did his master lose Chuchu?" "His master lost Chuchu..." In the third sentence, "master" needs no further modifier.
All are okay.
#5: "on" the subway #6: it would be better to say that the pet missed his old master.
For Q1 and Q2: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/delicious Your passage is fine. You might say "his" or "her" pet instead of "the" pet.
For question #1: Maybe? It isn't both! Read this: http://iipdigital.usembassy.gov/st/english/publication/2010/09/20100921144657aidan0.8100397.html#axzz4BS0FsO1K #2 - no
