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
1 & 2 - I disagree 3 - I agree 4 - I agree 5 - I disagree

You may get some ideas from some of these articles. Read several of them: http://www.bing.com/search?q=business+climate+in+nepal&form=EDGNTC&qs=PF&cvid=aeb0531be8e64777aa8ed42aa8868ee7&pq=business%20climate%20in%20nepal
I think there is some disagreement about which is BEST. What does your text say?
What kind of a School Subject is "ashworth"? I never heard of it.
And power. A conquered people is less likely to attack.
There have been better stage managers. Ask the play's director! BTW, A is wrong.
And the question in #2 is wrong. The program in question is NOT running out of money.
Not the one you wrote.
And who is Phoebe? I knew Phoebe Bent, but I doubt you are referring to her.
gaithersburg middle school
Your first step is to learn to follow directions. Gaithersburg Middle School is not your School Subject. Your second step is to read your class notes and your text materials about figuring probability. Third, try this: http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/probability-events-...
You asked this question several days ago.
I think so, too. The war itself pretty much settled the border between the U.S. and Canada (as the U.S. then existed).
Does the question mean dance movements and rhythms? Or are we talking about "movements" in pop music that come and go in popularity like ska, reggae, calypso, etc.? "Google" your question and see what comes up.
And a clothesline.
Do you have a question about this?
Where did you get this question from?
You might start by reading your text materials. It's unheard of, I know, but it helps. Then, if you have questions, we'll be glad to try to help.
I'm sure you'll find some ideas here: http://www.bing.com/search?q=islamic+impact+in+africa&form=EDGNTC&qs=PF&cvid=112b500c1c0d423abd0cb64c3c8491b0&pq=islamic%20impact%20in%20africa
If you don't know where Germany, Hungary, Austria, etc., are, look them up in an atlas (on line if you like). The quotation from your text answers the question.
I think it's hard to generalize about this topic. Most Caribbean cultures are on islands and developed uniquely, depending on each individual situation, who colonized them (English, Dutch, French, Spanish, etc.). Do your best!
Read lots: http://www.bing.com/search?q=caribbean+cultures&form=EDGNTC&qs=PF&cvid=32e57940f0aa45cea8ae32420aeae9a4&pq=caribbean%20cultures
Or maybe he was lazy and dawdled along the way.
I agree with your answer to the first question. When you do not know the meaning of a word, look it up: http://www.mirriam-webster.com
I have no idea what story you are reading, but from the choices given, I think "c" is most likely correct.
Of Mice and Men (CHECK!)(Reed)
It's been a long time since I read the book, Victoria. I don't remember all the details. (Yes, I have a copy of the book, but don't have time to re-read it right now, just for you.) 1 - rethink 2 - I agree 3 - I disagree 4, 5, & 6 - I agree 7 - rethink (I'm not...
It can mean many things. Sometimes it means parents having responsibility for their children (housing, food, clothing, education, etc.). It might mean having power of attorney to make decisions on behalf of someone incapable of making his or her own decisions. It might mean ...
Which question, the one about "I Remember Mama"? You made two guesses, both of which I think were incorrect. You have the clue, they seem to be making fun of Trina. "Who would want to marry Trina?" From that, you have the answer.
You have to read the book to find out. None of the tutors here has read it, but you are supposed to have done so. You can tell us!
Of Mice and Men Essay (Help!)
That's a restatement of the "prompt" or assignment. How and why does George fail? Or does he, finally, fail at all? Let me ask if George's final act is actually to protect Lennie in a final and permanent way?
Of Mice and Men (CHECK!)
As I recall, yes, because he follows George around "like a puppy dog".
"around" is rather vague. Does he put it around the dog's neck, it's abdomen, it's tail? Usually a collar does go on the neck, so I prefer #2.
No. I still think you're wrong.
I think they are worried about something else besides Trina's welfare. I disagree with #1.
In a way, 1 and 2 mean the same. "things" is general. "situation" is specific. What situation? So they don't really mean the same thing. "better" is a relative term. One can feel "better" than one did before, but still not feel "...
I think so. It was at about that time that the restriction that only men who owned property (real estate) could vote was relaxed in some jurisdictions.
In general, wars prompt tales of glory and heroism, as well as stories of great suffering as a result of war. We need only look at the Trojan War and "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" as well as plays such as "Hecuba". World War One seems to have a ...
What war(s), where, and when?
We have no idea what poems, plays, stories, or novels you have been assigned to read, or have "browsed".
Is there something about this assignment that you do not understand? What is your question?
To be a certified teacher in any discipline requires a bachelor's degree, which can be done in four years. To give private lessons just requires that you convince potential students to pay you.
Boats also carry much more freight than an airplane, so fuel usage per unit shipped (or per pound) is much less.
Except for what?
If you "googled" these topics, you should be able to answer the questions in your own words, which is what you are asked to do. Question 3 is a bit unclear. Are they asking about the diversity of the population, the size of it, or what aspect of the population?
What does your text say? What does the South Carolina constitution say?
DRIVING. HELP PLS.
I'm sure your text materials explain this, but if you don't want to read them, read this: http://www.safemotorist.com/articles/ipde_method.aspx

15 - no 17 - no 18 - no The others are correct.
What do you think? Audio tapes of professors explaining each theory? Pictures, as in a Power Point presentation? A documentary film that would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and several years to produce? Can you think of other media that could be used?
I'm sure it is a good book. I also think you are right that Writeacher, Ms. Sue, and I should read it! It is, however, hard for us to help you (and others) with this assignment. We do not know what is meant by your "reading character role" exercises are. I think ...
2 social studies questions
You may want to read your text materials. These might also help: http://www.history.com/topics/us-presidents/ronald-reagan http://www.whitehouse.gov/1600/presidents/ronaldreagan http://www.biography.com/people/ronald-reagan-9453198
A large group of new homes may well be a real estate development. yes, A.
I disagree with both your answers. Folk heroes may or may not be based on a real person, but their adventures and feats are usually embellished into fiction, exaggerated, or not real at all.
U.S. History (Check)(REED)
This is accurate and well written. I do hope you didn't copy it from somewhere else. Your own writing is not terrible at all, but not usually this good.
Regardless of other Related Questions, your answer is wrong.
Social Studies (check my answers)
I disagree with your answer to #2. The others appear to be correct.
U.S. History (Check!)
Yes, 11 is true. Mr. Clinton was impeachd by the House of Representatives, but was acquitted in a trial in the Senate. He was not removed from office. President Ford tried hard to stop high inflation. He did not think it was a good thing. 12 is false.
U.S. History (Check!)
11 and 12 are wrong. The others are right.
U.S. History (Check!)
Construction often follows an architect's plan, so yes, B.

11 - I disagree. 12 - I agree. 13 - I disagree with both your choices. 14 - I agree. 15 - I agree.
Since we, apparently, have not read this story, we can't be of much help. Sorry.
mame, do you know what the words "reproving", "mocking", "realistic" and "ironic" mean? If not, please look them up. I assume the story titled "The Necklace" is the same as the one titled "The Diamond Necklace" in my ...
The Federal Reserve System is another. It is not specified in the Constitution, and perhaps the "founders" did not envision such an institution, but it seems to be allowed under the general terms of the commerce clause.
`Public education (K-12, colleges and universities) is another one, taken in the aggregate.
Why does one read anything that is a fictional story (television play, novel, story, etc.)? The point of this one seems to be about completing tasks. Of the choices given, perhaps that's best. What has your teacher emphasized about "A Surprising Point of View"?
I think "stressed out" means you are feeling as much stress as you think you can tolerate. Being "stressed" may be less than a maximum amount of stress. "stressed out" is an idiomatic term; it means only what the speaker means it to say.
Once a (a proposed law) has been considered by a legislative committee, what happens to it? The committee either revises it and reports it to the full house or senate or does not (kills it). Then the full house or senate will debate it, amend it, and either pass it or not. To ...
It depends on the party, and how one defines "liberal" and "conservative".
2 is a, yes. 4 is NOT c! Which political party dominates South Carolina now? Is it the Democrats? Which party is in the majority in the legislature and holds the governor's office?
1 - yes 2 - no 3 - yes 4 - no 5 - I don't know.
It's not D.
1 - no 2 - I think you're right. 3 - NO 4 - yes 5 - Legislative committees often hold hearings on proposed laws, so it's not D.
