Hi! I am doing the semester exam for ELA (9th Grade) and I am having trouble with a few questions.
The Questions are -
17. What was the author's main purpose for writing this passage?
A. To tell an uplifting story
B. To Explain how to win an Election
C. To convince students to vote for him
D. To describe the teachers in his new school

My answer is C, but I don't fully know and I have read the thing over and over again. (the story is to long to type out, but if you have the test, you should know which one I am talking about)

And number 43.
43. Which question would provide the best transition for the transition for the beginning of paragraph 3 in this letter?
A. But who worries about the teens?
B. But what about married people?
C. But why stop with age?
D. But why will this prevent accidents?

I think the answer is D, but I just want to be sure! (this is also to long to type out, but if you have the test, you should know it.)
===

I know I said they are to long to type out, but if they are really needed, I will put them in the comments!
Thanks for the help!

  1. We Jiskha tutors can't help you because we don't have the test.

  2. No, of course, I get it!
    All good, I'll probably figure it out eventually, but I was just seeing if I could do this without time racking up on the test to much.
