I ran a search for detective work without technology and got mixed results! http://www.google.com/search?q=detective+work+before+technology&oq=detective+work+before+technology&aqs=chrome..69i57.6775j0j7&sourceid=chrome&espv=210&es_sm=119&ie=UTF-8 So I re-searched, using detect...

Grammar
You're very welcome!

Grammar
I'd use the adjective form ... AND a comma after "argue," too.

Grammar
I'd choose a completely different word! I'd choose "regardless." The sentence seems meaningless, though. What are you trying to say? What is the context?

statistics
I'd say "d." 45 out of how many? 65 out of how many?

sociology
I agree ... but it'd be interesting to know how any "-rate" is a process!!

What?
This makes no sense at all. Sorry. =(

Poetry

Go back and re-read the first link I gave you above about writing introductions. Get rid of that first sentence, keep the other two, and build your intro on these, keeping the thesis for the end. Next time you post, include the intro (redone) and the 3 interior paragraphs ... ...

Don't even THINK about writing any conclusions until you have the interior paragraphs and the introduction as perfect as you can make them.

Yes, the content and development are fine. Now you need to work on the introduction, making sure it ENDS with your thesis statement (which does NOT include a dictionary definition!!). Study these before you try writing your real introduction: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/gra...

The content is fine. Now make sure there are ~ no fragments http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/fragments.htm ~ no run-ons or too-long sentences http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/runons.htm ~ that commas are in all the right places http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/gramma...

Then use "murderer" not "homicide." The words are not synonyms. Be sure to look up EVERY word you are not 100% sure of. I'm finding too many words in your writing that are off the mark. Foreshadowing is better than chronological structure. Once you get ...

Your paragraph on irony has too much narrative in it without zeroing in on the ironic parts. In this paragraph, you need to skip the story re-telling and concentrate on the irony. You also need to check for the specific corrections that I listed above. The paragraph on chronol...

Your paragraph on setting includes good information and details. It's very rough, though, and you need to work on all of the following: ~ make sure there are no fragments ~ make sure all subjects and verbs match (singular subject with singular verb; plural, with plural) ~ ...

As I told you before, this is your thesis statement: In “The Most Dangerous Game,” by Richard Connell, the author’s use of choice of setting details, selection of a chronological text structure, and, most of all, irony create suspense in the story.

1. I'd use the author's last name in place of "the author's" in that first sentence. 2. Don't mix up the setting (describe it) with the characters' conflict until (maybe) the end of that paragraph. 3. Fix all run-ons. 4. Delete "also" in...
