No, there's no onomatopoeia. =)

English
Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds, and may or may not rhyme. Look at the other lines around this and decide if you want to include assonance. Here's an excellent example of assonance -- TWO matching vowel sounds in the three words: Jumpy monkey sundae (the name o...

English
The past tense of broadcast is broadcast!! No -ed ending! Here's what I would write: Ten news items were broadcast on CNN.

English
I'd go with mournful. How sad would it be to think someone was just out there waving, but he was signaling that he was drowning and needed help? He died because people didn't read the scene right.

English
Then the choice should be clear between B and D.

English
Title and author? It needs to be understood in the whole context.

Writing
People have known for millennia that humans need to be in balance. "Constant Socratic theme: The parallel between health of the body and health of the soul, i.e. between physical health and moral or spiritual health..." http://www3.nd.edu/~afreddos/courses/301/plato....

Education
... and the ability to actually teach, not just lecture or talk!!

Writing
To me, it looks like careless writing or lack of good editing. I agree that there should be a period there instead of a comma. Commas are used for this purpose when there is some kind of "reporting" verb, such as said, asked, wondered, and so on. http://www.google.co...

English
C is a question with a subject and verb. Do you see them? A is an adverbial clause. If you remove the word "Since" it'll be a complete sentence.

You're wasting a lot of time not doing what I asked you to do. I'm not going back in this website to find your outline. If you don't post it, I can't read it.

Then post your original outline, and I'll see what I can suggest.

I think you need to start from scratch. If you're having this much trouble writing this paper, you need to chuck it and start over. Use the idea list Ms Sue gave you yesterday. She's right.

This is much better. I'd still make a few changes, but you have taken care of nearly all the wordiness! Congrats! It's not easy, I know. Why do you need to say "I feel..." or "I mean..." You're the one writing the paper, so it should be obvious ...

It all reads fine to me. These are things that students would use the internet for, right. Adults will also use the internet to research travel routes and transportation, to read the news, to check on stocks, to conduct online banking, etc.

6 is probably B. If you got all these wrong in the first place, I'd say you didn't study your text at all. So study it ("study" means read and re-read more than once!), and then try again ... without guessing.

In addition to not making much sense, there is no question here.

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