citizenship
I'm not sure I understand your question. Citizens of any nation, city, etc. can be bigots based on whatever it is they dislike or distrust about fellow-citizens or anyone anywhere. It can be skin color, nation of origin, sexual orientation, gender, age, religion, even what...

ENGLISH - GRAMMAR ????
It's easier to understand if you say "No information has been received regarding...", but you're on the right track to make it passive. "Honesty is the best policy" is active, no matter who said it. The third sentence is passive, yes. How would you ...

Theory of knowledge
Very true, Ms. Sue. The cost to the state for all the appeals that are allowed under law is enormous. The counterargument is that appeals should not be allowed, even if the original verdict was wrong.

I. don't have a source handy, but I'm sure you can find several that will contend that people who commit murder are not thinking at all about punishment. Murder is a crime of passion, spur of the moment, usually. A robber is threatened by the store clerk and fires in ...

I think this is quite good. To nitpick, all those people in your first paragraph have various attitudes (plural). As a suggestion, you might expand a little on those influences and whether or not we adopt them as our own or think about them and decide for ourselves. Are we ...

I agree, too. Often surrealism suggests images that occur in the real world, but upon examination do not, thus "on top of" or "above" the real world.

I have no idea. If you had read the assigned material, you should know. Were they uncaring, afraid of something connected with her inability, express concern about the inability, or did they make fun of it? I haven't read it, but if you have, you'd know.

The three experiences are pretty terrible to have seen. The author is not making fun of it (satire). The experiences are not the same, so it's not repetition. Do you see any rhyme within the line?

History
Probably. Nothing is static, everything changes, even in Roman times. Pick a time and place, say Egypt in the time of Cleopatra, early in the days of the Empire. Or Carthage after Rome burned it. Two different places, different times, different circumstances.

The Roman Empire also lasted a long time, so the time in which you are travelling may affect what you see.

The Roman Empire was a very big place. Achievements in what is now Germany were mostly just to keep warlike tribes under control. In what is now Provence in southern France, aquaducts and other public works were achievements. Where are you supposedly travelling?

Geography
Ms. Sue and Writeacher are correct. Prevailing winds do come from the west, so sometimes the east side of a mountain may be drier than the west, but it's not always the case, depending on local conditions. Generalities are often misleading.

Do newspapers, magazines, television, radio, movie
I must add another comment. Yes, even legitimate media editors do make decisions about what to put on their pages, but not necessarily because it's sensational or will sell ads. Taxation, for example, is not sexy, "we the people" need to know about changes in tax...

Do newspapers, magazines, television, radio, movie
You're on the right track. All the media you mention are very much still with us. Newspapers were not replaced by television or radio, nor has the internet replaced magazines or other older media. Books are also a medium. But you are correct in that the medium does not ...

By the way, Ms. Sue is right. There were few immigrants living in China at that time. Immigrants were discouraged for about 400 years before the 1920s, as were most "foreign" influences.
January 11, 2015

Social Studies
At that time China was largely agrarian in economy, so lifestyles were rural for the most part. China was not a unified nation as it is (more or less) today. Government came from Western colonial powers (Germany, etc.) and local warlords and landlords. Look up Sun Yat Sing, ...

Absolutely, Ms. Sue! Women write as well as men and should be judged as such. Think Willa Cather, Edith Wharton, Hilary Mantel, Dorothy Sayers, and on and on and on. Alice Munro who won the Nobel Prize last year. Lots of popular male authors can't hold a candle to the ...

To have standing in what context? To file a suit in court? If so, no, B is not enough. Usually it must have been harmed in some measurable way by the action being disputed. Just representing an opposing viewpoint is not usually enough to have "standing." On question ...

Actually, I think B is the answer you must give, but it's not a very good summary of either Whitman or Emerson and transcendentalism. The point I think Whitman made again and again was that there is the universal in all of us, as experienced in every day life, which is ...

I'm not sure what the blank in your question refers to. Ms. Sue suggests "rhetorical." If someone asks a rhetorical question, they often mean to address it, if not give a definitive answer.

Yes, the answer is B. The more bales of cotton or bushels of corn produced, the price per unit went down, but the farmer made it up in selling more of it. The consumer paid less, so benefited.
