I would not use 3. I would rarely use 4, but not when speaking about rain. 1 and 2 are fine.

I think you have gotten a rather negative interpretation of this concept. Melting pot or salad bowl, both are intended to describe the strengths of the US. In the melting pot image, everyone would "melt" together, races and ethnicities would mix, and we would all be ...

#1 is best. The others are OK, but would not be used much. #s 3 and 5 (if used) would probably be best in poetry.

They mean the same thing, but #1 is the better sentence -- less wordy! And yes, I think "left" is an adjective modifying "money."

None of us can "be like him, his beliefs." Each of us has our own beliefs, and some may be strong enough to move us to acts of civil disobedience. So the question is ... what do you strongly believe is wrong enough that you'd be willing to be civilly disobedient?

Ms. Sue already answered your question: The question for you is what do you strongly believe is wrong enough that you'd be willing to be civilly disobedient? What don't you understand about her question and how it is simply restating your assignment?

YOU must use your imagination and think of what you want to include. Once you do, let us know, and maybe we can give you feedback.

So that means the St Clairs are friends with the narrator's parents, right? Do you kow where this story comes from? It's a chapter out of the book called The Joy Luck Club. "The Joy Luck Club refers to the novel by Amy Tan, published in 1989 ... In various forms, ...

Old Chong's mother must be a VERY old lady. How do I know? Because the narrator refers to Mr. Chong as "old." So ... what is there in what you quoted that fits with being a very old person? Use that. The St. Clairs are the flattest of all ... there is NOTHING in ...

reading what does this mean?
I'm surprised at such a skimpy assignment. Yes, Old Chong's mother is static, but there's a slight description of her there. I'm surprised that you don't have to tell at least a little about her ... same with the St. Claires. Waverly is different. She's...

You mean Old Chong's mother, right? Not Old Chong himself?

reading what does this mean?
What terms (besides "flat") can you use to describe Old Chong's mother, according to the quotation from the story? I met Old Lady Chong once, and that was enough. She had a peculiar smell, like a baby that had done something in its pants, and her fingers felt lik...

reading what does this mean?
Waverly isn't completely "flat," but the others are. What other "character terms" have you been told you can use besides "flat/static"?

Make sure each character has all four elements: Each page will present 1) a character, 2) character terms specific to this character, 3) a graphic image and 4) text suppot that "proves" each character term that has been assigned. ~ You've made a good start, once ...

Business
Deposits into traditional IRAs are usually made with money that has already been taxed (withholding on paychecks). Annuities, however, are usually built up with pre-tax money, so withdrawals from these are subject to income taxes.

English
In #s 1 and 2, change "most" to "very" and they will be fine. #3 is correct. #s 4 and 5 need to have a noun after "strongest."

English
1 means she is very suitable ... 1-2 means she's more suitable than anyone else. 2-2 is the correct one between these two sentences.

English
The main problem with these sentences is that they end with adjectives that don't modify anything. Most attractive what? Hottest what? Shiest what?

parts of speech
I see two that could be correct answers. Past perfect verbs indicate an action that started in the past and continues into the present. Progressive verbs indicate an action that is on-going.

It's always going to be abstract. Cashier, teller, clerk, teacher, doctor, accountant ... All those would be concrete nouns because you can SEE and TOUCH them. We cannot, however, SEE or TOUCH a job.
