It refers to what the people on TV, in red costumes, are doing. They are having a festival celebrating tomatoes. One could also write/say that the people on TV are having a festival, but "it" is the festival.
No. An appositive would be, "A famous man, William, had a chance..." http://www.grammar-monster.com/glossary/appositive_apposition.htm
This should get you started. http://www.bing.com/search?q=feudalism+in+the+middle+ages&FORM=QSRE3&ajf=70 I'll give you one hint of things to look for: both monasteries and convents had to have permission and were required to pay taxes (in some form) to the King or regional...
What does this have to do with fine art? To learn more about feudalism and monasticism, "google" both words and read lots. I'm not sure the two things are similar, but see what you can find and what conclusions YOU can draw.
"Anonymous" is correct, as far as he/she goes. Improper disposal of garbage, industrial waste, etc., is what leads to pollution. Improper disposal is the result of what Ms. Sue said.
Even in a career that may not change very much over the years, sometimes people want to change. Teachers may "burn out", nurses may want a less stressful career after years of doing it. In my own family, an uncle wanted to be a mortician. He went to mortuary school, ...
(chuckle) Perhaps Lencho did not like my comments. As to preparing for a single career, it is true that some careers won't change over the decades. Careers in medicine, teaching, etc., even politics, don't go out of style or change substantially. Others become obsolete...
1. It seems to me that the t/f statement is just another way of saying what Super wrote. That would make it true, not false. 2. That may be true in Super's view. The fact is that most people will change careers at least once or twice in a 40-year span of "work life&...
In the U.S., "minus" is much more commonly used when referring to temperature. We might also say, "It's eighteen degrees below zero."
Well, although all four ways of saying it might be intended to mean the same thing, they could be interpreted differently. If you are speaking instead of Mr. Frank, perhaps you are speaking for yourself, not Mr. Frank. If you are speaking "on behalf" of Mr. Frank, ...
Yes, they all mean the same thing. We would use #3 most often, though.
I have no idea what your text materials say on this topic, especially how sexual offenses are different than other criminal activity. My best advice is to study your text materials and your class notes very carefully. Then, if you have more specific questions, perhaps we can ...
I have no idea what this question means. What is APA? American Psychological Association or some other APA? And what is covered? The style guide, the official diagnoses matrix? What? If it's the style guide, there are others that are alternatives. But I have no idea what ...
leadership and professional development
So, excellence in customer service, product quality, etc., might be something to strive for?
leadership and professional development
Let's use another example. If a company puts out a crappy video game, who would buy it?
Now you learned two things. Where the mound builders lived, and where the Ohio River and the State of Ohio are, at least vaguely. :)
The Ohio River flows from Pittsburgh, PA to Cairo, IL. Is that in Central Mexico, the Pacific Northwest, the southwest? Where is it? Have you ever seen a map of North America? If not, you can google one and find the Ohio River if you don't know where it is.
Where is the Ohio River?
In what part of North America is Ohio? The southwest, northwest, central Mexico, or eastern region?
I'm sure you can think of something. How about the comparative benefits and drawbacks of urban and rural living? Small towns versus big cities? Voluntary charity versus the "social safety net" provided through mandatory taxation? How about zoning laws that ...
My response is the same as before. Until you show some effort on your own, there's nothing we can do for you. We will not do your homework for you. The idea is for YOU to think.
Yes, he was, as well as being the most famous. :)
Was he the man who led the conquest of the Song Dynasty? Or just the most famous?
Make an effort. Then we can react to your ideas. We are not going to do your homework for you. That is cheating.
Regardless of the work this excerpt comes from, I think the cinematographer's intent is quite clear. YOUR assignment is to identify lines that make it clear. We can't do it for you. When you have some ideas, come back and we can discuss them.
I agree. Good work.
Yes, baloney to the idea you're ten helping your cousin. Let your cousin post her own questions, then. Sheesh.
Here, you have not indicated what your answer is, either. We won't figure it out for you. That's your job. We'll check your answer.
If there are 140 kcalories in 11 chips, how many are in one chip. Divide 140 by 11. Then, how many kcalories are in 25 chips?
I've never heard of a school subject called rio mesa. Can you explain to me what you study in that class?
Evaluate what? e·val·u·ate [??valy??w?t] VERB form an idea of the amount, number, or value of; assess: "when you evaluate any hammer, look for precision machining" · [more] synonyms: assess · judge · gauge · rate &...
None are improper grammar as far as I can see. #1 is by far the best written, though. The others are just awkward. #4 is one I would not use at all. The preposition "to" is implied, but not stated ("to me"), so it's even more awkward. #2 is also ...
No, we will not do your homework for you. Ms. Sue has given you lists of web sites for you to read, I suggested you read your text materials. Once you have done that, you are to write your own summary. That is your assignment. To have someone do it for you is cheating and you ...
Your text materials may also explain who Zeus was and some of his mythological exploits. It's amazing what you might find there.
Yes, C is correct. And I assure you that you can trust Ms. Sue. I have, for way over 50 years, and she never let me down. :)
It can't be both. You have to make a choice. if test questions are serious, would they be posed nonchalantly? Maybe, I suppose.
What does your text say? Has your teacher discussed this topic? This may give you some ideas, too: https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/10.2165/00019053-199405020...
They all mean the same. #6 would be better as one sentence, "...friendly, however. his..." The "rules" of English grammar say it's not proper to begin a sentence with a conjunction (and, but, however, etc.), but we do it all the time.
You've mixed verb tenses here: was playing/was singing; played/sang match.
All four sentences are fine. Look up he words "when" and "while". In the contexts you have used them, they mean the same, but look them up. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dictionary
I have never heard that term, either.
What is your question? These sentences are fine. What are you supposed to do with them?
Yes, they are all correct. The verb tenses match in both clauses in all four.
Gee, if you want me to do this assignment, I need the list of early civilizations, the map, and some colored pencils. I don't have any of those things. Or is this your assignment?
Not to step on Ms. Sue's toes, but you are correct that the Spanish treated the Native Americans poorly. And if the Spanish did not take American land from the Portuguese, what is the answer to the first question? As Ms. Sue advised, check your text materials and you will ...
What job would you not want to have, and why? I have no idea what job you might find distasteful and I can't tell you why you think so. What kind of help do you need with this assignment?
Your question makes no sense. Please restate it. "We are those who wanted to (do what?) (on?) Cherokee land..." And what did the Cherokee signers have to do with it? This is also not a question at all It's a declarative sentence.
I have no idea what would fill in this blank. Read your text materials carefully. The correct answer is in there.
Yes, they are grammatical.
Yes. When you watch a movie, you are seeing it.
One is weak. Two is not failed at all! Rethink that one.
Nope,it's not D. Kilts is plural, not possessive.
I disagree. Study your text materials very carefully and re-think your answer.
What do YOU think? Your teacher doesn't care what I think. Someone will check your answer.
I agree. The color of the dancer's costume draws the viewer's attention.
Art help Fast PLEASE!!
I think both perspective and space are not the right answers. You've ruled out color, so that leaves shape, right? I hate doing this by process of elimination, but it is the rectangular shapes of the buildings that dominate the painting. But, I'm not your teacher. He ...
Art help Fast PLEASE!!
None of the tutors here is an art teacher. From what I do know of art, I disagree that the Merli drawing's dominant feature is perspective. Merli was expressing his interest in cubism as a style, so I think there is a better answer. Note the lack of detail and the ...
D is correct!
In other words, to be IN bed is to be atop the mattress, covered with the bed covers, be it a sheet, a blanket, a coverlet, or a combination of them.
Being "in bed" and "sleeping" are not necessarily the same. One may sleep in a hammock, on a sofa, outdoors in the grass, in a chair, any number of places. And people do things in bed that are not sleeping, from reading to watching TV to sex, etc. Bed ...
Numbers 2 and 5 are incorrect. The others are correct. "sad" is an adjective. In these sentences, a predicate is needed. "I am sad", a predicate adjective. "I sad" has no predicate, so is incorrect.
Well, probably #1 and #2 are best. Three is past tense, so it implies that the host might "mind" AFTER the bathroom was used. The question indirectly asks permission to use the bathroom in the present.
The triangle includes mental, physical, and social health. Which one might include relationships with other people? Think about it.
It's not one part of speech. It's a whole sentence. Translated, it means, "I think, therefore I am." Attributed to Rene Descartes, it is a compound sentence with two subjects, two verbs, and a conjunction to connect them.
They are all fine. In the U.S. we would be more likely to say "watch the bag"; in the U.K, "mind the bag". They both mean the same thing. Both mean, "Pay attention and don't let anyone steal the bag."
Do you have no ideas? Two bodies face to face in the night. What does that suggest? A married couple? Siblings sharing bed? They're in the same bed, but two distinctly different people? What do you think?
Who knows? I'd like to know what the question is, but if it's a secret, I can't try to answer it.
common app essay
I'm sorry. I can't see your essay from where I sit, so can't proofread it. My superpowers must have been affected by Hurricane Harvey or something.
Johnny is wrong. The French voyageurs/traders did not establish settlements as in yeoman farmers. They established forts and missions. The forts were to protect their trade routes; the missions to convert the natives to Christianity. Of course, some crops were necessary to ...
A is the best answer or #1, yes. :)
It is true that all the Europeans who explored the Americas were looking for a passage to the Pacific Ocean, but that was not the primary reason the French explorers and traders first settled along waterways.
I agree with your answers to #2 and #3, but not to #1.
What are your choices? We'll be glad to check them.
I think A is more correct, yes.
Begun is correct. Began is past tense. Begun this the past participle, so "has begun" is correct. :)
What war had been most recently fought prior to 1950? The Hundred-Years-War, the War of the Roses, the Trojan War? World War II? How was that war different than World War I? This is your assignment. We can't do it for you. We'll be glad to critique your answer.
History, please check
I disagree with your answer to #2. One and three are correct. (Sorry, Ms. Sue)
Social Studies 1 QUESTION
I would add to what Damon said that the French and the Americans tried very hard to win the support of native peoples in their causes against the British in both wars - with varying degrees of success. I wish there was an article I could refer you to on the web, but I don'...
First of all, when did Lima get up and move to Columbia? The first email requesting recommendations is very poorly written. The answer, to Anna, is better. Would you like us to critique both?
And, please, anonymous, give us both the title and author of a work if you expect us to help you. We may not have read the poem, but could look it up IF we know BOTH the author and title.
1) "couldn't" indicates the meeting has already taken place. Your rewrite indicates it is yet to happen. Make it correspond to the original sentence. 2) "SUCCESSFUL" 3) It's okay. "...so as to..." is rather colloquial It might be better to...
Oh, my. Where indicated on the Google homepage, type your question, then click on, or otherwise "enter". A list of entries/articles will appear. Click on the one you want to read. It will appear. If that does not answer your question, return to the previous page (the...
Also pay attention to what emotions are described in each poem. In "Mother to Son", are ANY emotions mentioned or implied? Are they in a positive or negative way? Are any human feelings expressed?
Who, or what, is lencho? Since I don't know, but you are supposed to know, I can't do your assignment for you.
None of the tutors here are experts at art history. Your response looks good to me. I hope it does to your teacher. From what little I know, you seem to have a basic understanding of these movements, but I'm no expert. Sorry I can't help more.
English - Analysis of quotation
I don't know the context of the quotation. Obviously it's about a cataclysmic event that is destroying the world in fire. Who are "Seer" and "Sibyl"? Mythological characters observing the event from afar, or participants? What do YOU think? Why ...
Do you have a question about this assignment?
Human resources management
Your teacher doesn't want my thoughts, s/he wants yours. How can we help you with this assignment?
Were we lending/leasing war materiel to Germany and/or Italy or Vichy France as well as to he U.K.?
Actually, NONE of these is an accurate description of the passage cited. Each contains information not included in this passage.
Is this math?
Since when is math (geometry?) called "Cruz"?
And what does this have to do with U.S. history?
Well, what does "monetary" mean?
I don't know. I don't have your text materials. What do they say about Doris Lessing's story?
Washington state history
When you have an answer(s), we'll be glad to check them. Think about it. Do they still log in Washington? Are there mines today? Did Microsoft exist in the 1800s? Think it through, if you can't read your text materials.
They should? Why? What do you think? Your teacher doesn't care what an old man in California thinks.
