What do you think? Have your read the ODYSSEY? Was Odysseus always clever and wise? When, among these examples, did he make a mistake?

Browsing through a list of links, choosing one or two, and reading is difficult.

No. Tomatoes are native to the Americas. Try reading your text materials instead of guessing.

I don't want to give you a "bum steer" here. There is truth in D and in B. I can't know which your teacher or algorithm that corrects your answers will consider correct. C is completely wrong. A seems far-fetched, but rumors of anti-Turk propaganda may have ...

Nope. You've had two guesses. You're on your own now. Read your text. It might just have the answer.

Yes, they are legally yours. You need some kind of proof, such as your signature and date on the design (or whatever you created). One way to prove it is to mail a copy of it to yourself. The postmark will prove the date (if you don't open it and throw away the envelope).

1 - 6, I agree. I disagree with #7. #8 may be your choice or it could be another; think about it. I disagree with your answers for 10 and 11, agree with 12.

On the Simon and Garfunkel Greatest Hits CD, my favorite song is "The Sound of Silence".

Another example would be: In "The Soup Nazi" episode of Seinfeld, Elaine has a really funny line.

All titles of entire works (books, movies, television shows, etc.) are italicized or underlined. Chapter titles, magazine or newspaper articles contained within the larger publication, song titles, etc., are in quotation marks. An article in Time, "President Trump's ...

Underling is also acceptable. Free Food for Millionaires.

Yes, I think so. One can rebel against a rule s/he doesn't like while conforming to something else. Your teacher may give you a homework assignment, but you rebel by not doing it because all your friends are going to see a movie and you want to conform to what they are ...

Yes, A is correct. D is not.


Since we can't see the table, we can't interpret what it shows. You can see it. What does it demonstrate?

One of those is correct, the other is not. READ the link Ms. Sue gave you and/or your text. Stop guessing.

And your answers are? (Two are correct.) I'll check your answers after you've read your text materials and think you know.

Ariel, your posts come well after midnight. Most of the tutors are doing other things at this time of night in the U.S. and Canada where we are. Don't expect a fast response. I agree with your first answers. For #6, an outline comes AFTER you have researched your questions...

MLA English
I've never used MLA, so I don't know the answer to #1. Your answer for #2 is wrong. I agree with your answers to #3 and #4. For a guide to MLA format:

Help? Your sister fell into the lake and is drowning? Your house is on fire? What is your School Subject? It looks like biology to me. To find information on any topic, use your search engine (all devices connected to the internet have access to a search engine like Bing or ...

If I had a clue what "in just-" is... But you won't tell me, so, I can't help. Is it a poem, a story, a novel? Who wrote it? I'd have to know the context to know what it might mean.

When taking or making notes, use "keywords" or words that highlight the main points you want to remember. What you copied and pasted above deals with two topics. One is the border between Canada and the USA, and how it is crossed frequently because the two nations ...

I can't find it, either. Garcia is contemporary, so it's a poem that was written in (approximately) the last 20 or so years. He has published five books of poetry, and his poems have appeared in periodical publications. When this one first appeared is not revealed by a...

You just said it very succinctly! Exactly. No one would be able to understand anyone else. The rules of grammar help make our words understandable to others.

Writeacher has a good point. Language (including the rules of grammar) does change over time. Such changes come about by common usage though, and in response to new ideas, ne developments in science, philosophy, etc., but by COMMON usage and need. Just the other day I read a ...

My own thought is that language is of no use unless it can be understood by the other people we come in contact with or wish to communicate with. Spelling, rules of grammar, word usage (commonly understood meanings of words) are essential to that process. If each person, or ...

Your first sentence is redundant. Ethnic groups are characterized by the fact the members are of similar ethnicity. It also makes no sense because ethnic groups are characterized by being (in some ways) dissimilar from each other. And I think you misinterpret the phrase "...

BTW, my money is on the wolf.

I have no idea. Your language is poor, though. Three animals fighting ARE fighting. One is fighting (singular), more than one ARE doing whatever they do (plural).

Oh, okay! Yes, it's D.

And which do you think is the correct answer? What does your assigned reading tell you? We'll check your answer, if you like. Hint: what does "self-determination" mean?

You may also want to read your assigned text materials. That sometimes helps, or so I am told. It's rare that you are asked to complete an assignment (or a quiz or test) that is not covered in your assigned reading.

You're welcome. :)

I agree. You're right.

AP history
What does your text say? Use your search engine to look up the Age of Exploration. Then look up Imperialism and/or Colonialism in the 19th century. Read lots.

I hope you have not strayed so far from home that you can't get back in time for supper.

Looking again, I agree with Writeacher that your choice for #3 is wrong, too. I still think there's a better answer for #5, but your teacher may disagree with all of us. :)

I agree with 1, 2, 3, and 6. 4 and 5 are wrong.

Since you have not told us what confuses you about this assignment, the only advice I can give is to read your assigned text materials carefully. If there is something in the text you don't understand, "google" it and find something that explains it. If you have ...

I'm sorry. I don't know why I was listed as "Anonymous". I'm one of the tutors here. :) Yes, c is the correct answer.

Neither do I. What is the book about? What points does the author make to support his idea that something went wrong? Those are the places you'll find "significant" quotations.

This person impersonated a tutor? On another post?

We're not being rude. We are giving you the best advice we can give. If I were your teacher, I'd run out of red ink just to point out the misspellings and incorrect word usage, much less the fact you don't support your conclusion. That's not rude, it's the ...

Gee, I can't see the choices or which one you think is best. My ability to see your screen from my house isn't working today. Sorry we can't help.

Ashley, you have not been given ANY text assignments to read? I don't believe that. This will give you the information you need, but you will have to read it.

No, it's not B! Think about it. What is the purpose of going to school? Just to give kids some place to stay all day? For civil rights? To prevent crime? To educate? What is it?

Nope. Have your read your text materials at all? You may want to read this if there are no text materials assigned for you to read:

Trying to give and get answers here is frowned upon. The object is to help students learn, not just give away answers so that nobody has to study and learn anything. Giving away answers can get a person banned from Jiskha, temporarily or permanently.

I still like it. I'd make "Love, you thief...crook" all one line. Your rhyme scheme works with "crook" and "overlooked". It's really quite good. I hope your teacher agrees. :) I can't know his/her expectations.

The term makes sense. The non-verbal clues do indicate the speaker's intentions. A wink and a smile give a good clue, so does an angry expression, as to the speaker's intentions.

I like it! Now, write it in poetic form and let's see how the lines come out. As it is, it's more of a prose poem than a traditional poem - which is okay, if that's what you want to create. A traditional poem needs a meter of some sort, indicated by the line breaks.

And, Udal, I'm sure many native-born Americans don't know how Federal judges are selected, either. You're not unique as a recent immigrant! :)
