    Which sentence has NO REFERENCE of any kind to male or female?

  • communications100 -


    Which of the following words is the most abstract?

    African-American literature
    Toni Morrison
    college degree

    I think college degree, because you can see it and touch one, but also I am unsure who Toni Morrison is and you can probably see them.

    Both 3 and 4 show biased language.

    3. Why shouldn't women celebrate this invention too?

    4. Are only men firefighters?

    Look at the first two sentences. Which one does not assume the gender of the people involved?

    No, "college degree" is not the most abstract. Neither is Toni Morrison because she's a real person!
