A reason for what?
A is correct. :)
Yes. Japan was a closed society, not wanting foreign influences, keeping itself "pure". It had little contact with the "outside world."
You're welcome. :)
C is correct.
JUST PLAIN EASY
Some people don't think Jiskha is so awesome when the tutors won't just give them the answers. :)
The envelope, please! And the answers are? We'll be glad to check them.
I think that's a better answer. When you aren't sure, look up the word in a dictionary or thesaurus to find the definition and synonyms. :) You can do that by typing the word (flutter) into your web browser with the word "synonym" or "definition" ...
#1 is correct #2 I have not read the novel, so don't know. #3 Which word is italicized, "fluttered"? If so, I think there's a better answer.
I'm sorry, but I don't understand your question.
When you have read the book and can venture some answers, we'll be glad to check them.
ot A or D. You've had two guesses. You're on your own now.
The last one is incorrect. "Prime Minister" is the title, like "Dr." or "Mr.," or "President Obama". No comma is needed. The others are correct! Good work! If the sentence was "The prime minister, Winston..." the commas to set ...
"When two nouns are used to indicate common ownership, the sign of possession is placed after the second noun: Smith and Brown's office. (Smith and Brown occupy the same office.)"
If you still don't understand, this from Walsh (1966), PLAIN ENGLISH HANDBOOK: "The possessive case indicates ownership, possession, or similar relationship. 'This is Robert's book.' To form the possessive singular of a noun, us an apostrophe and 's...
I gave you an example of how to do it. Read the link! The house of my family... My family's house. Which words are nouns? How is one of them made possessive? To open the link, click on it.

You can also "google" for yourself. Type in whatever keywords you want into the search engine you have available to you and see what you can find. If one search doesn't find what you need, try again with a variation or more specific set of keywords.
http://www.sciencebuzz.org/museum/minnesota_geology/layers_of_sandstone http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandstone I'm not sure these links answer your question specifically. What kind of layers depends on whether they were laid by oceans, rivers, in river deltas, etc. What ...
I don't think any of the tutors here are familiar with this work. Based on the excerpt, I think you are correct on #1. Otherwise, I have no idea. Sorry.
English Essay writing
The assignment seems clear to me. Is there something you don't understand? How can we help you?
What do YOU think? Do the words mean nothing? Just ink on a page or marks on a screen? You are asked for YOUR interpretation.
Yes. But there are other words too. Other language that communicate the change in tone and the nature of the conversation. "Red" is only one. The caller is "seeing red", and so how does that change the conversation? WHY is she seeing red? How does she react?
Reread the poem as many times as you need to, very carefully, and look for words, the poet's use of language, to indicate how the conversation changes from the first to the second stanzas. Look for words like "red" that have meaning.
The caller asking about the apartment for rent is apparently calling from a pay phone. Don't be distracted by that. You may not know what a pay phone is. They used to be common, before cell phones. One put coins in a public telephone to purchase minutes to make a call. In ...
It appears to me that someone is calling about renting a room or an apartment. The telephone conversation is going well until the caller mentions that she/he is from Africa. The tone of the conversation changes immediately as the landlord asks if the caller is dark-skinned or ...
How can we help you with this assignment? What, specifically, has confused you?
The solar tower in Israel is a good idea. Here's another one. The Mosul Dam in Iraq is unstable and could collapse, endangering 1.5 million people along the Tigris River. The Tigris is the life-source and has been since very ancient times, Mesopotamia is the "cradle ...
A key is in the second question: "use examples from your textbook." Do what bobpursley suggests, and also reread your textbook, which also explains these concepts. Reread with these specific questions in mind.
Did you have an ideas about the character you chose in the novel? Who is he/she? Why do they do what they do? Why do they say what they say? Is any of it worth discussing? Do you have any questions about the character to discuss? Explain your choices. And how do those ideas ...

Health care is not my field. I'm an English and Social Studies tutor, and I don't think anyone here is an expert on health care information management. That's what you are studying to become! I do know that there are restrictions on what information can be released...
You are asked to write a sentence or two about how each of these concepts affects the keeping of health care information/records. For example, are there any statutes that govern how or what records are kept? Explain. Do the same for each of these concepts. Make sure you ...
Have you read your text materials? These concepts must be discussed therein as they relate to health information management. Otherwise, "google" "health information management" and read about it there. You may also need to look up each of these terms if you...

No. C is not the answer.
Assuming you have seen a film version of Arthur Miller's THE CRUCIBLE, think about what happens in the movie. A woman is accused of a crime (witchcraft). She denies that she is a witch, but the court and the church decide she is lying and is, indeed, a witch. Who is right...
Only who can tell? Are you missing a word, or is "only" a person?
I don't know. What does your text say? Which unions are options, and when?
I won't check so many questions. Please post the ones you are unsure of. A quick look indicates you are correct on !, wrong on 2, and, if 2 is wrong, so is 3. 4 and 5 are correct.

I think what your notes indicate (probably accurately) is that poverty rates may be high in high density areas, there is no cause and effect correlation. You can't say that people are poor BECAUSE they live in a high-density area. There also may be more (relatively) ...
I think both your answers are wrong here. Cheers could be heard? Whose cheers? And someone wishes, so she is the subject of the sentence, not a possessive.

Just one example: a deeply held belief that only people of white European ancestry are intelligent, as "white supremacists" say they believe. That precludes the idea that people of other ancestry can be of equal value to society and precludes learning anything that ...

I don't know how you can lose a book unless you are very, very careless and dropped it in a mud puddle or left it on the bus - but...Ms. Sue is right, your library may have a copy. If not, you can purchase a new copy from wherever you got the one you say you lost, or order...
I agree with C, yes.

What do you mean, the value of studying history or as a career? The value of studying history is to know where our world and our own society has been, how it developed, and how and why we got to where we are. As someone once said, if we don't know where we've been, how...
Another reason to resist new information or knowledge is that it might disprove something we already believe to be true. That makes people feel uncomfortable. A relative of mine believes that President Obama is a Muslim and was born in Kenya. Neither is true, and has been ...
