Option 2:

Answer
Scrooge goes through a catharsis, he manages,just in time as far as his age is concerned, to reinvent himself. He goes through an 'enlightenment' when the ghost of his old business partner comes back from the dead momentarily to tell him about the shackles of sin; greed, selfishness, uncharitable behavior, avarice and general penny-pinching meanness, and where it has led him in the afterlife. It has brought him nothing but misery - but Scrooge can avoid it if he manages to mend his ways before his own death. This requires remorse, sorrow and genuine shame on Scrooge's part. At first he doesn't seem to be learning any lessons - then there is an illumination (he asks what will become of Tiny Tim and now seems to genuinely care.) The change in Scrooge is a change in heart.

  7. THE ANSWER IS Penny pincher encounters a purgation, he manages,just in time the degree that his age is stressed, to reevaluate himself. He encounters an "illumination" when the specter of his old business assistant restores rapidly to teach him concerning the shackles of wrongdoing; unquenchability, conceit, uncharitable direct, insatiability and general penny-crushing offensiveness, and where it has driven him in the considerable past. It has brought him just sadness - however Tightwad can avoid it if he makes sense of how to modify his courses before his own specific passing. This requires lament, trouble and real disrespect on Miser's part. At first he doesn't seem to take in any lessons - then there is a light (he requests what will advance toward getting to be from Little Tim and now appears to genuinely mind.) The alteration in Penny pincher is a modification in heart.

  13. Honestly, I just think that the arguments between teachers (real or not) and students (real or not) are ridiculous. I won't elaborate which side I'm on, but if someone is desperate enough to come here, then it's not likely that they're just lazy. Maybe they don't have the time to think up an original answer. From my experiences with cheating, I tend to have an answer. The only time I really cheat is when I can't put it in good terms, in which case I look for something that hits all of the points I want to make with my answer. I then change it up a little.

    Of course, I have had experiences with stereotypical "cheating" in my time. These experiences are few and far between, however.

    I'll provide an answer that should be fairly obvious.

    -

    Ebenezer Scrooge's character changes between Act 1 and Act 2 of "A Christmas Carol" in a very drastic way. At the beginning of Act 1, he is a selfish old bat. This is proven by his actions, which display that he isn't charitable and doesn't like the idea of people enjoying Christmas. By the end of Act 2, however, he's less selfish and much more charitable. He has begun to care about others. This is how he changes between Act 1 and Act 2.

    -

    That's an answer that can be taken in any way. Honestly, I don't see why people don't use vague answers like this.

    I find cheating as something someone should only do if they have limited options. Really, it is an easy way out. I think that teachers shouldn't be relaxed about it, by all means. I just think that teachers should be more understanding. I also think that students should try to avoid cheating as much as possible.

    Cheating doesn't just hurt yourself. It will actually probably leave a bigger impact on you, if I've learned anything. You retain it more because you're reading an answer that likely makes sense to you. Not only that, it's a reinforcement on material you've likely already studied. I don't think cheating is bad, I just think that you should do research on it if you don't understand.

    I am on neither side of this argument. I provide answers that have been asked for. Nothing more, nothing less. I also don't care if people use my answer. If people need help, then I guess I'll provide it.

    After all, who's going to use this in their life?

  26. The answer is correct, but it's considered plagiarism. I've seen this exact answer to this question on at least 5 websites. Make sure you put it in your own words and get an idea of what it's trying to say. It'll help you and many others in the end. Also, @Tecaher CA, @Miss Thompson, and @ms lee, stop pretending you are teachers, it isn't helping anyone. Even if you were teachers, you should know how to spell properly and not go off on a student like that. You have to idea how hard these tests are, and sometimes we have to look stuff up because it's too confusing. I've read every single piece of material my school has given me on a book, but I'll still get an F because I get stuck on a sentence. I would rather cheat a few times then be stuck on the same test for two weeks, which has happened multiple times to me in the past before.
