Read this excerpt from Theodore Roosevelt’s "Duties of American Citizenship" speech: But this is aside from my subject, for what I wish to talk of is the attitude of the American citizen in civic life. It ought to be axiomatic in this country that every man must devote a reasonable share of his time to doing his duty in the Political life of the community. No man has a right to shirk his political duties under whatever plea of pleasure or business; and while such shirking may be pardoned in those of small cleans it is entirely unpardonable in those among whom it is most common—in the people whose circumstances give them freedom in the struggle for life. In so far as the community grows to think rightly, it will likewise grow to regard the young man of means who shirks his duty to the State in time of peace as being only one degree worse than the man who thus shirks it in time of war. A great many of our men in business, or of our young men who are bent on enjoying life (as they have a perfect right to do if only they do not sacrifice other things to enjoyment), rather plume themselves upon being good citizens if they even vote; yet voting is the very least of their duties, Nothing worth gaining is ever gained without effort. You can no more have freedom without striving and suffering for it than you can win success as a banker or a lawyer without labor and effort, without self-denial in youth and the display of a ready and alert intelligence in middle age. The people who say that they have not time to attend to politics are simply saying that they are unfit to live in a free community.
What does Theodore Roosevelt claim in the excerpt?
A. All people have the right to enjoy life and shouldn’t be forced to make sacrifices.
B. All people should exercise their duty to vote and be good citizens.
C. All people should dedicate a fair amount of their time to politics.
D. All people who do not vote are unworthy to live in a free, democratic nation.


I would say D. It seems she is making a good statement as well. :)

C. All people should dedicate a fair amount of their time to politics.

"The whole house was constantly in a state of inundation, under the discipline of mops and brooms and scrubbing brushes; and the good housewives of those days were a kind of amphibious animal, delighting exceedingly to be dabbling in water ..." In this selection, the use of the word inundation is probably _____. exaggerated literal


The correct answer is "In this selection, the use of the word inundation is probably exaggerated."

In this situation, inundation is not a real inundation/flood, therefore it is not literal. It is a word used to exaggerate the fact that the housewives are constantly cleaning the house, sweeping and mopping. You can see that too in the excerpt "under the discipline of mops and brooms". We know the author is referring to the cleaning process and therefore, chooses to use the word inundation to create more depth to what he's describing.

d. think positively & visualize the outcome


Since Jenna has already rehearsed and carried out a lot of research, she should change her attitude as regards the topic of honeybees.

Thus, an enthusiastic stance will make her presentation produce a positive impact on the public.

The answer is B. Practice frequently and carefully prepare.

D. Jin Wang uses soap as deodorant and gets bubbles on her shoulder.


"American born chinese" is a graphic novel written by renowned author Gene Luen Yang. The book tells three parallel stories. One about a Chinese immigrant in America, another about an American boy who is visited by his cousin on vacation. The two stories are completed by the re-creation of the Monkey King legend.

In a story, the character Jin Wang, who came from China to live in the United States, lives a period of adaptation to the new reality, since the cultures of the two countries are different. He lives in isolation and subject to ignorance.

After a while, as a teenager, he falls in love with Amelia Harris. When making an date with her, he confuses the soap with deodorant causing bubbles on Amelia's shoulder, which makes him rather embarrassed.

Read the excerpt. When a sedate content the spirit feels,
And no fierce light disturbs, whilst it reveals;
But silent musings urge the mind to seek
Something, too high for syllables to speak;
Till the free soul to a composedness charmed,
Finding the elements of rage disarmed,
O’er all below a solemn quiet grown,
Joys in the inferior world, and thinks it like her own …
In these lines from “A Nocturnal Reverie” by Anne Finch, how does the natural world charm the speaker to “composedness”?

The love she has of sunshine makes her focus on her surroundings.
The connection she feels with nature makes her spirit content.
The connection she feels to other people makes her long to be with family and friends.
The love she has of animals makes her forget her daytime cares.


Answer: B) The connection she feels with nature makes her spirit content.

Explanation: In the given excerpt from "A Nocturnal Reverie" by Anne Finch, she describes being calm (composedness), with no disturbs, without feeling any rage, and with a joyful spirit. All these positive feelings are caused by the connection she feels with nature. Also, for the way she expresses herself, we can see that she is not only connected with nature, but also she is inspired by it.

A because its means calm

According to a recent encyclopedia entry about dog breeds, Labrador retrievers come in two specific breeds: English and American. The article cites six studies from several scientific journals about dog breeding showing that males of both breeds usually average 29-41 kg (65-90 lb) in weight, and females usually average 25-32 kg (55-70 lb) in weight. Anna’s female Labrador retriever weighs 38 kg (83 lb). What does Anna’s dog’s weight indicate about the reliability of this source? A)This is still a reliable source because it clearly cites scientific research. B)This is still a reliable source because it is a printed book, not the Internet. C)This is no longer a reliable source because Anna disproved the studies. D)This is no longer a reliable source because Anna’s dog’s weight is in the range for males.


Encyclopedia is still a reliable source because it clearly cites scientific research, hence option A is correct.

What is an encyclopedia?

Encyclopedia is a collection of essays that supply factual, concise, and close background information on a topic.

A recent encyclopedia entry on dog breeds is about Labrador retrievers, observed in two specific breeds, English and American. Anna’s dog’s weight represents the reliability of this source.

It provides a summary of the knowledge about a particular work, including the background information, on this field. In the given question, it suggests information for dog breeds.

Therefore, this information in the encyclopedia correctly depicts the reliable source about dog breeds, hence option A is correct.

Learn more about the encyclopedia, here:



A) This is still a reliable source because it clearly cites scientific research.

A is the correct answer because of the fact that they did the study over several dogs, feeding them the same amount of food, at the same time. They did everything the same, while Anna didn't for her dog.

Hope this helps.

Which of the following should be filed immediately after Friedman? A) fulke
B) friar
C) flint
D) franz


This is quite a weird question to answer here, but anyway, the solution to this lies on the fact that in an alphabetical order the letter U goes after the letter R. The only thing you have to do is to recite the alphabet to see what comes right after the next letter R because the word that is before is Friedman.

This is the process to filed last names or names:

Friedman check the first letter then see what comes next, in this case is the letter R, well see all the options and check the one letter that goes after the letter R, in this case we have a letter A in Franz, and given to the fact that the letter A is before letter I, we need to move on to the next letter in the alphabet. In this case after the R the only next letter present is the U.

Reason why, the correct answer is:

A) fulke

Theonly one that comesafter Friedman would be fulke, just go through the alphabet man.

Both wrote against proper beliefs and view at the time.

what can readers infer about the ethics and attitudes of the mormon Faith from what the author shares about her mother and grandmother? why does the author want readers to understand the mormon culture?


I believe this question is about the story "The Clan of One-breasted Women" by Terry Tempest Williams.

The author is from a Mormon family and they live according to The Word of Wisdom (a religious health doctrine) by eating good and healthy food and abstaining from drinking coffee, tea, alcohol, or eating and smoking tobacco. Despite their religious healthy eating, the women all acquired breast cancer. For them, cancer is a part of life and undergoing surgery to remove the tumor is deemed one of the most spiritualexperience a woman can encounter.

The author wanted readers to understand that in Mormon culture, authority is respected, obedience is revered, and one is discouraged from exercising independent thinking. The instilledfear and inability to question authority ultimately leads to death. A death that one can prevent if he or she simply had the courage to speak up and speak out.

Read the passage from Gulliver's Travels. There was a most ingenious architect, who had contrived a new method for building houses, by beginning at the roof, and working downward to the foundation.

Which is an objective summary of the passage?
A-In his travels, Gulliver is fooled by a silly architect he meets.
B-When he meets a ridiculous architect, Gulliver is oddly impressed.
C-Gulliver encounters an architect who builds houses from the top down.
D-Gulliver meets an architect who has a crazy way of building houses.


C-Gulliver encounters an architect who builds houses from the top down.

An objective summary is one that merely states facts. It does not include opinion words. Options A, B, and D include opinion words: fooled, silly, ridiculous, oddly, and crazy. These options are all subjective summaries because they include the summary writer's thoughts and opinions about the architect.

C. The other answers use words like silly, ridiculous, and crazy, which are not objective.

When the author remains focused on the subject and doesn't refer to himself or the audience, what is the point of view?
