There are more incorrect answers here than correct ones. Please go back and read, re-read, and re-re-read your text until you are sure of all answers. Then re-post.

English
This webpage has really good explanations and examples, too. http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/3072/why-is-to-get-sometimes-used-where-to-be-could-be-used

English
In these sentences, "get" and forms of "to be" seem to be interchangeable. I prefer the forms of "to be," but to use forms of "get" in sentences is okay. Read the examples here: http://www.learnamericanenglishonline.com/Green%20Level/...

English
#1 is correct; 2 an 3 aren't. I'd use #4, but #5 is not correct unless you insert "for" after "her."

English
Yes, all three interpretations are right. =)

English
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/for?s=t See the second definition here for "for" in this context.

English
In #1, change "it" to "it's" after "think." #2 is fine. In #3, omit "it" in the 3rd sentence, and change "it for him to be" to "he is." In #4, some are OK; others aren't. To help him is my duty. OK It is my ...

English
1, 2, 6, and 7 are fine. If you change "it" to "it's" in the rest, those sentences will be fine, too.

English
Not much difference at all. Sentence 2 has more of a finality to it: he did his homework in the past, and he isn't doing homework anymore. Sentence 1 has a simultaneous quality to it. "I knew" it while he was doing it. (Both in the simple past tense.)

Sst
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/ore

English
1 and 4 are fine. 2 would be fine if you omit "to me." 3 would be fine if you omit "to us" or move that phrase to the end of the sentence.

Geo-what??
Geology - a science Geometry - math Geography - usually taught in social studies You really need to get it straight if you want the right tutor to find your questions!!

Pride in oneself? Pride in others' actions? Your question is quite broad. Read several of these search results, keeping in mind that as these legends were told and re-told in later English life, beliefs of Christianity began to be included. http://www.google.com/search?q=...

What character analysis portfolio? If you are asking this of other students, this is not the forum for that. You should try answers.yahoo.com.

English
1-1, 2-2, and 3-3 are incorrect. Substituting a noun clause for the infinitive phrase is incorrect in this context.

English
All are OK. Using the infinitive is much better, but using the gerund in casual speech is OK.

English
All are fine, yes. No, in these sentences "that" is needed because it is introducing a noun clause in each sentence. You can often omit "that" when it's introducing a relative clause (an adjective clause).

English
Yes, "gold" in this sentence is an adjective, in the position of a predicate adjective because the verb "turn" is something of a linking verb. http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/verbs.htm#linking Other adjectives that would fit in this particular ...

Social Studies
I agree.

In addition, there are many other "students" who have been banned for the same reason. Their screen names and the reason just haven't been announced. Take heed. NOTHING that contributes to students' cheating is tolerated.

I don't know what poem you've read, but yes, that phrase is used in both poetry and prose to mean those generals (high ranking officers) who are in the "parlors" and offices, directing the ranks of men who get shot at.

English
2, 4, 5, 8 -- these are fine. The others are strange. They are not grammatically incorrect, but the word choices are off.

1, 2, and 5 are OK as they are. 3 and 4 -- I'd include "my" before "teeth" -- or if you are brushing a child's teeth (for example), you should indicate so with a possessive: her, his, Jan's, or whatever is appropriate. 6 seems incomplete -- it&#...

Philosophy
That's your entire assignment, which no one here will do for you. Be sure to let us know if you have any questions about your assignment.

English
You can use either one. Both sentences mean the same thing.

English
1. This is a picture of Tom. 2. This is a picture of Tom's. -------------------------------- Does #1 mean as follows? Tom is in this picture. yes Does #2 mean as follows? This picture is Tom's. This is a picture which Tom has taken. yes This picture belongs to Tom. yes

English
"where" is referring to a place, so it has to be "this island" "right here" and "on this island" are adverbial phrases, not appositives. You can remove either one and the sentence will still make sense.

English
2 is the correct way to phrase an indirect question. 3 is incorrect. 5 is correct. You can also write this another way: I know why you think so.

See Related Questions below. If none of the identical questions have answers, it's because no one here is willing to write the answer to YOUR assignment for you.

English
It's very hard to tell. But the real point is that YOU NEED TO TELL US what YOU THINK the answer to each of these questions is. Someone here might be able to check your answers.

English
You're welcome. Sometimes if you give us ALL the information, and the reading selection is short, one of us can read it and be able to reply to your questions.

English
You're assuming that the tutors here have read whatever you have read. You also failed to provide the name of the author and maybe the exact title. It's hard to tell. :-/

Didn't you notice that no one replied to you this morning? http://www.jiskha.com/display.cgi?id=1477669365 That's probably because no one here knows.

English
All of these pairs of sentences are fine. They don't mean exactly the same thing, but they are all correct.

English
Yes, 1 and 2 mean the same thing. In #1, you can use "some of them," "any of them," "all of them," and others. In #2, you can use all except "any of them." #s 3, 4, and 5 are all correct, yes.

Thank you, Ali! Very true!!

No one here will give you the answer! Also, I don't think any tutors here have read those works; at least when this has been posted before, no one has indicated so. You write up your assignment, and if you want someone here to check your writing, post it.

common core math
It is good old fashioned math. There are some publishers who are making a ton of money writing new texts for old fashioned math!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

English
Whether the place is named in THIS sentence or not, "it" still refers to a place. -------------- London is 344 km from Paris. London is the capital of England. It is 344 km from Paris.

English
In #2, "It" has to refer to a place. Maybe the place was named in the previous sentence, but it cannot just be vague and impersonal when the reference is to a specific distance like this.

1 and 3 are fine. With "from" in the sentence, "away" is unneeded.

English
Yes, right!! =)

English
Yes, "it" refers to London in that sentence.

English
You're very welcome! =)

In that sentence, "it" refers to Ulleongdo. Try substitution, and you'll see: ... because Ulleongdo is only 87.4 km away. Please note that you mean "from" not "form" in that sentence!

Geography

English
It would be better to use "the" in place of "an" in all these. When you use "an," you're implying that it could be just any apple ... or maybe even all of them. But if you use "the," you are referring to a particular apple.

English
I'd use "for" rather than "of." I don't think "of" is incorrect, but I think "for" is better. I think all the variations (a-e) are commonly used. I think "a" is the best one.

English
1 and 2 mean the same thing, yes. 4, 6, and 7 are correct. (3 and 5 are not used.) by far very best an excellent a superb

Language arts
"i dont have the time to do this i need it done within 30 to 45mins!" Your procrastination doesn't mean it's an emergency for anyone else here. It means you need to get off the computer and write your assignment.

English
1 is fine. 2 implies two-thirds of all the apples in the world, which doesn't make sense. 3 is fine. 4 would be fine if you omit "of." 5 is fine. 6 is not. Yes, you need some kind of identifier before the nouns in these phrases. 7 and 8 are grammatically correct...

English
All are grammatically correct, yes. Adding "please" to #s 1-4 will make all of them polite!

You're welcome.

2 and 4 are best. 1 is OK, but 3 isn't.
