Diplomatic relations with Germany had already been severed, a month before the Zimmerman telegram was deciphered and made public.
I agree with C.
One through four are correct. Please post only those questions you are unsure of, not all 25 from a review exercise. And, in future, please put your answer with the question, not in a separate list. Scrolling up and down and up and down again and again to match your answers to...
First, it's not contagious, it's contiguous (adjacent). According to the law, there is no difference when it comes to preventing and responding to oil spills. http://www.epa.gov/oil-spills-prevention-and-preparedness-regulations
I haven't read it, so I don't know. I recommend you read it so you can find out.

ELA The Cay is the Book
You've asked this question before. If you have not yet read the story, you may never find out! I'm sure the reason is there.
What do your text materials say? When you find it and think you have an answer, we'll be glad to check it.
And your answers are? We'll be glad to check them.
Do you mean a predicate nominative? No.
Since we don't have your book, we can't look up pg. 304. From what you describe, I agree that external conflict is obvious. Internal conflict is when a person entertains two conflicting ideas or feelings and doesn't know which is right or should be followed. ...
Your school program is in error. R is medical. The links we posted are from the Library of Congress. However, if the education program you are using for "school" says it's "reference", then that will be the only "correct" answer, even if the ...
He walked have slowly? That makes no sense. What is your question?
22 - yes 24 - I think that's a better answer, yes. 27 - No. Which does NOT represent magical thinking? Which is very practical with no imagination required? Do not post this question again.
#22 - I think there's a better answer. Has the speaker in the poem ever been to Africa? #24 seems to call for your own interpretation. I might have chosen another one, though. And I don't know which will be considered "correct" by your teacher or the computer...
OOPS. I'm sorry. I don't know why I typed "adverb". In this sentence, "happy" is an ADJECTIVE.
"happy" is an adverb modifying "me". I can't "give" you happy or sad or any adverb. I can make you happy. "happiness" is a noun. I can't make you happiness, unless I can form it out of clay or make it in a factory, etc. I can &...
And the pyramids in Egypt are only one of seven "wonders".
Does "on the whole" mean all upgrades fall within the service contract? What do factory-trained technicians have to do with costs and fair-use guidelines?
Again, I have no idea what your text says. Have you read it? I have not.
That makes sense to me, but what does your text say?
I don't know what your text says. I haven't read it. You have, haven't you?
On the right track, yes, but... Rethink the idea that Hamlet is just like Claudius. Claudius' motives may be different than Hamlet's, so they may not be the same, although regicide was/is the ultimate goal of both.
I think your ideas are as valid as anyone else's IF you can back them up with good arguments based on the text of the play. Only you can do that; they are your ideas. That's what your teacher wants you to do. I can't back up YOUR ideas, only you can. Find examples ...

There may be several. Money may be one. It's expensive to raise children! Education may be another, if one or both of the couple are in school. Career advancement may be another, if one or both wish to concentrate on establishing a career before adding parenthood to their ...
A FEW questions? Please only post those you are truly unsure about. A quick glance: I disagree with your answer to #4. I agree with your answer to #s 6 & 7.

Ms. Sue has retired for the night. It's after midnight EST. I suggest you read the work to find out why Timothy warns Philip to stay out of the water. I'm sure the answer is waiting for any reader to find it. But, you do have to read the work for yourself. I can't ...
I agree that they are the same. A tragedy, by definition, comes from within the person, not outside circumstances (like a storm or an auto accident). It comes in how that person reacts to and acts upon those circumstances. Lear trusts the wrong people. Willy Loman has based ...
A reason for what?
Yes. Japan was a closed society, not wanting foreign influences, keeping itself "pure". It had little contact with the "outside world."
You're welcome. :)
C is correct.
JUST PLAIN EASY
Some people don't think Jiskha is so awesome when the tutors won't just give them the answers. :)
The envelope, please! And the answers are? We'll be glad to check them.
I think that's a better answer. When you aren't sure, look up the word in a dictionary or thesaurus to find the definition and synonyms. :) You can do that by typing the word (flutter) into your web browser with the word "synonym" or "definition" ...
#1 is correct #2 I have not read the novel, so don't know. #3 Which word is italicized, "fluttered"? If so, I think there's a better answer.
I'm sorry, but I don't understand your question.
When you have read the book and can venture some answers, we'll be glad to check them.
ot A or D. You've had two guesses. You're on your own now.
The last one is incorrect. "Prime Minister" is the title, like "Dr." or "Mr.," or "President Obama". No comma is needed. The others are correct! Good work! If the sentence was "The prime minister, Winston..." the commas to set ...
"When two nouns are used to indicate common ownership, the sign of possession is placed after the second noun: Smith and Brown's office. (Smith and Brown occupy the same office.)"

I don't think any of the tutors here are familiar with this work. Based on the excerpt, I think you are correct on #1. Otherwise, I have no idea. Sorry.
English Essay writing
The assignment seems clear to me. Is there something you don't understand? How can we help you?
What do YOU think? Do the words mean nothing? Just ink on a page or marks on a screen? You are asked for YOUR interpretation.
Yes. But there are other words too. Other language that communicate the change in tone and the nature of the conversation. "Red" is only one. The caller is "seeing red", and so how does that change the conversation? WHY is she seeing red? How does she react?
Reread the poem as many times as you need to, very carefully, and look for words, the poet's use of language, to indicate how the conversation changes from the first to the second stanzas. Look for words like "red" that have meaning.
The caller asking about the apartment for rent is apparently calling from a pay phone. Don't be distracted by that. You may not know what a pay phone is. They used to be common, before cell phones. One put coins in a public telephone to purchase minutes to make a call. In ...
It appears to me that someone is calling about renting a room or an apartment. The telephone conversation is going well until the caller mentions that she/he is from Africa. The tone of the conversation changes immediately as the landlord asks if the caller is dark-skinned or ...
How can we help you with this assignment? What, specifically, has confused you?

A key is in the second question: "use examples from your textbook." Do what bobpursley suggests, and also reread your textbook, which also explains these concepts. Reread with these specific questions in mind.

Assuming you have seen a film version of Arthur Miller's THE CRUCIBLE, think about what happens in the movie. A woman is accused of a crime (witchcraft). She denies that she is a witch, but the court and the church decide she is lying and is, indeed, a witch. Who is right...
