L A/The Giver
Is the character having a conflict with someone or something OUTSIDE of himself? Or is the character having conflicting feelings INSIDE himself?
May 19, 2015

English
Yes, it still is something of a toss-up between 3 and 4, right? Literally, it means "too early" or "too quickly" in that sentence in that paragraph. However, since "too early" is not a choice, "impulsively" is better.
May 19, 2015

English
Without a sentence (context for the word), 4 is the best synonym for "prematurely." HOWEVER, in this particular sentence (the context for the word), 3 makes better sense. Words taken out of context leave a whole lot of options open. (This is why I'm impatient ...

I would have chosen 4, too, but you're right that in the context of that sentence, 3 makes better sense.

Ms. Sue is right. You would use "they" if you are referring to the people individually. You would use "it" if you are referring to the family as a unit.
May 16, 2015

English
That is the very general, introductory use of "it" in which there is no antecedent. It's just introductory, just as "there" and "here" are sometimes used at the beginnings of sentences.

Yes, you're right.
