    Just what is it that you "don't get"? I can't help you if you can't explain your own confusion. Is it that nothing in this play makes sense to you, or that you don't understand the concept of sharing wealth with others, or what?
  2. Language arts

    When you encounter words that are new to you, look them up in a dictionary. It's easy. Type the word into the browser on your device with the word "definition". You'll find out what it means quickly and easily.
  3. History

    There is lots of material on this topic. https://www.google.com/search?q=How+did+the+death+of+Abraham+Lincoln+affect+reconstruction%3F&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi9u87t6dXaAhUByGMKHaLKD1QQzmcIRw&biw=1138&bih=515 As for Pres. Andrew Johnson, "google" him to find out more about ...

  10. Social Studies

    I agree with B. If anyone posts the answers to any test, s/he will be banned for cheating.
  11. English

    Here, I disagree with Ms. Sue. "narrow" does mean the same as "slender", but "slender" is usually used in the connotation of a physique, as in a slender person or a slender fashion appearance. A slender opening in the fence is usually referred to ...

  18. History

    Well, to a certain extent, B may be correct. Some imperialists in the 20th century did justify empire on the grounds that European rule was more "civilized" than the undeveloped regions they occupied. There was a popular notion that non-European civilizations were ...
  19. History

    I disagree with both B and C. Have you read your text materials?
  20. English

    Also, if you post an essay for us to critique, make sure you tell us what story you are analyzing (title and author). We have no way of knowing what you were assigned.

  25. English

    All are correct. It would be more common for us to say "up and down" instead of "down and up", but both are correct. Three and four are also correct and do mean the same as one and two.
  26. English

    If the word "academy" is the name of the school, Academy, it is a proper noun and should be capitalized. As a common noun, you really need "an" or "the".

    Is that his FIRST reaction? Is Tiny Tim even at home when we and Scrooge first meet the Cratchit family? I don't know the version you're reading, but in the Dickens original, Bob and Tiny Tim come home from church a few minutes later.
  28. Psychology

    Is your definition of "media" confined to television only? There are other kinds of media, such as print, the internet, radio, movies, etc. Media is plural. Television is one medium.

    That's one idea. You may have better ones, or your teacher may have something else in mind entirely.
  31. Psychology

    I think political conformity fits your topic. People tend to disdain people whose political views do not conform to their own. The result is polarization, embodied in our news media and social media on line. Fox News, for example, reflects a conservative point of view (it was ...

    Because Scrooge has not learned yet that the business of man is NOT money, but those other, more caring pursuits.
  38. Language Arts

    By "business", Scrooge means the managing and accumulation of money. Marley has learned, in death, that the real business of mankind is not MONEY, it's those other things, like charity and mercy.

    In this piece of writing, there is no real person named "Judge Lynch". The "judge" is the mob that lynched African-Americans.
  41. world history

    Okay, but what I’m getting from the passage is that people don’t like African Americans because it says they are more sinned against than sinning. At the end it also says African Americans are not a cruel race. I’m probably wrong so can you please clear it up a ...

    Yes. So, is the answer A or D?
  45. AP English

    Are economic differences the same as cultural differences? A speaks of cultural differences, D speaks of economic differences. What has Burgess been writing about?

    If the map shows that Manaus is closer to the Negro, then that might just be the correct answer.
  50. English

    I believe the accepted phrase is "root verb".
  51. History

    Well, she is advocating in public and in writings for education for women and girls, the opposite of what the Taliban wants. Is that cooperating with them, appeasing them, accommodating them, or competing with them?
  52. History

    Is she collaborating/working with the Taliban to accomplish their goal of denying girls and women education? Is she accommodating them, letting them do what they want? Look up those words in a dictionary if you aren't sure what they mean.
  53. English/writing

    You could make it clearer by writing that they continued to collect pledges FOR three weeks after the event. As it is, did they wait three weeks to collect the pledges?

    We can't see your graph, so can't comment on it. If A was the "correct" answer to your first question, whoever wrote the question was taking Madison's sentence out of context. Madison's Federalist paper was an argument for a federal-style government ...
  60. Government

    Mr. Madison's sentence, taken out of context (as presented here) is really rather meaningless. Do read the article Writeacher posted for you. I would hope your text materials provide context, but the article certainly does.

    I don't know what your text materials say about it. This might help: https://study.com/academy/lesson/scarcity-in-economics-definition-causes-examples.html
  62. US History

    I agree. Better transportation systems (and greater industrialization in general).

    Stay on the farm, become a soldier? What does your text say?
  64. Art

    Since we can't see either painting, we can't comment. What do YOU think? Even if we could see the paintings, your teacher does not want to know the opinion of a Jiskha tutor, s/he wants yours.
  65. English

    Yes, one is best. Two is not bad. Three doesn't seem right in America. We don't refer to karaoke as an entity unto itself. We might say we sang together in a karaoke BAR or NIGHTCLUB. "A karaoke" doesn't make sense to us.
  66. History

    What does your text say? I have no idea what the context for "pride" is, as your text authors define it. Perhaps there's a hint here: https://thelostcolony.org/bringing-history-to-life/elizabethan-era/
  67. History

    I don't like any of the choices, but C is the best answer.
  68. English

    Yes, all are grammatical. Yes, they all mean, whatever he is doing, he is in front of or near the computer.
  69. History

    I agree.

    Your text probably has the information you need. You can find it here, too: https://www2.le.ac.uk/projects/vgec/highereducation/topics/cellcycle-mitosis-meiosis
  71. criminology

    It's a matter of word usage. A coroner will list the manner of death (heart attack, suicide by hanging, strangulation, etc.) as the cause of death. All will result in lack of oxygen to the brain, which (in these cases) will be the actual cause of death.

    I'm sure your text explains the various models of power. If not, read this: https://www1.udel.edu/htr/American/Texts/pluralism.html

    I disagree with your choice of B. Think about it. What does that last sentence say? That the government cannot do MORE than to restrict the expansion of slavery? Think about it.

    Yes, A.
  80. politics

    Yes.
  81. politics

    I don't know how the "staffers" are counted. They could include staff in district offices or just those who work on Capitol Hill. In the 115th Congress, there are 9.490 staffers. What does your text say?
  82. politics

    I agree.
  83. History

    Yes, it is either B or D, but which? What does your text say?
  84. psychology

    That makes sense to me. A could also be correct. Your text, undoubtedly, makes the distinction between A and C. I haven't read your text, so I don't know what it is. You have. If C seems to be the best answer, based on your text materials, go with it.
  85. psychology

    1 is fine 2 is fine 3 - no. If there is only one academy, we need to say "the academy". If there are more than one, we need to say "an academy." Only if the academy's proper name is Academy may we omit the article. 4 - no. Do you (singular) go to ...
  93. English

    All are acceptable. I think number four would be less likely to be used, but is okay. When I read it, I want to know how it finished. "The concert finished with Copeland's 'Fanfare for the Common Man'." :)
  94. English

    The italicized words are what the speaker is thinking or saying to himself. We would not italicize them. I would put them in quotation marks. Italics are for emphasis. To use the italics is acceptable, but the quotation marks should also be there.
  95. English

    One is preferable. One-one is not. Two is acceptable, but not what we would say in the U.S. It seems awkward. Three and 5 are acceptable. Four and six are awkward. They all mean the same, yes, but three or five are the ways we would say it.
  96. English

    All are acceptable.
  97. Government

    Read lots. It's still controversial, 50 years later, because some of the programs are still in existence. https://www.google.com/search?q=pros+and+cons+of+the+great+society&ie=&oe=
  98. English

    They are all fine. "studio" or "center" are both acceptable. If the studio calls itself a studio, then it's a studio. The same, if it calls itself a center...whatever.
  99. English

    Any of the three would be okay.
