English Middle School


Answer 1

That's a weird question. It could be any if the above, and without more context it's impossible to know. The most general one that applies to pretty much all claims is "it takes a clear position", so I would go with that.

In a small village up on a hill there lived a little girl named Hope. She always wanted to go to school but her parents told her she couldn't because they all worked in the fields. One day she left from home and realized all the cool things that she has missed while being at home so she decided to run away, and never go back. Then she stopped and saw a lot of children playing with a ball. The children looked at her differently because she wore dirty clothes and had bare feet. They wondered where she came from and laughed at her. A kind woman noticed the situation and walked over to Hope. The lady took a tissue from her purse and gently wiped the dirt from Hope's face. She had extra pair of sandals in her purse as well, and gave them to Hope. Hope smiled as she slipped them on. Hope asked the lady who she was and the lady said she was a teacher at the local school.

The teacher told them she could help them by taking Hope to school and drop her off as well. Hope was happy and her parents saw her smiling so they said okay.

The cold chill of loneliness on this black night reflects the enormity of time and space. Which romantic idea is most clearly shown here ?





This is an example of the Romantic idea of intuition. Romanticism placed emphasis on the elements of human nature that cannot be explained through reason. This was a reaction to the Enlightenment period and its focus on rationalization. Intuition was considered an inner voice that informs our lives and directs our actions. This is employed in this passage as the character feels a cold chill of loneliness.

B, resisted should be resist.

B. Kristoff worked hard on his diet, but he could not resisted snacking.

Resisted should be resist because it has "could not" in front of it and "could" requires the present tense of the verb.

A. All of the cars in the parking lot today are parked illegally.

Correct because "are" is a present tense verb going with "today."

C. Marcia's lecture on the Ming Dynasty made the front page of the newspaper.

Correct because it happened in the past tense and the past tense of make is "made."

D. Sherel poured herself her third cup of coffee, without apology, and drank it.

Correct because "poured" and "drank" are both past tense verbs so the tense is consistent in the sentence.

Read the excerpt from act 5, scene 3, of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. MESSALA. Seek him, Titinius, whilst I go to meet
The noble Brutus, thrusting this report
Into his ears. I may say, "thrusting” it,
For piercing steel and darts envenomed
Shall be as welcome to the ears of Brutus
As tidings of this sight.

TITINIUS. Hie you, Messala,
And I will seek for Pindarus the while.


Why didst thou send me forth, brave Cassius?
Did I not meet thy friends, and did not they
Put on my brows this wreath of victory,
And bid me give it thee? Didst thou not hear their shouts?
Alas, thou hast misconstrued everything!
But hold thee, take this garland on thy brow.
Thy Brutus bid me give it thee, and I
Will do his bidding. Brutus, come apace,
And see how I regarded Caius Cassius.
By your leave, gods,—this is a Roman’s part:
Come, Cassius’ sword, and find Titinius’ heart.

What moral dilemma does this excerpt express?

Titinius feels guilty that Cassius is dead, and decides he must kill himself.
Brutus feels guilty that Cassius is dead, and decides to give him a garland.
Messala has to decide whether to tell Brutus about Cassius or to kill Pindarus.
Titinius has to decide whether to tell Brutus about Cassius or to kill Pindarus.


The first option is the answer: Titinius feels guilty that Cassius is dead, and decides he must kill himself.

How I built the conclusion:

Firstly, the act starts with a conversation between Messala and Titinius. Then, Messala EXITS, so a monologue by Titinius starts (Since he's the only one in the scene, there's no need to identify the speaker, as there was previously when Messala was also present).

Since he's alone, and speaking with a sorrow tone when he starts to 'talk' to Cassius, it can be assumed that Cassius is dead. And apparently, Brutus had previously instructed Titinius to give a garland (the wreath of victory) to Cassius. (The notice of Cassius death is probably the report that would thrust Brutus' ears, and what Messala left to tell him, in the first place). Finally, he decides he will still accomplish his mission (Brutus' bidding) by also dying (as giving Cassius his garland in the afterlife).

So with the gods' leave (in this context, permission), he meets his Roman's part (separation from Rome - material world). And he finally conclude the deed by 'inviting' Cassius' sword to find Titinius' heart (his own heart - thrusts a sword into his chest).


A: Titinius feels guilty that Cassius is dead, and decides he must kill himself.

C)In the first sentence, rents means large tears in a piece of fabric. In the second sentence, it means a payment to a landlord.

D)In the first sentence, rent means to pay someone for the use of something. In the second sentence, rent is a specific payment to a landlord. I



C)In the first sentence, rents means large tears in a piece of fabric. In the second sentence, it means a payment to a landlord.


In the first sentence, a rent is something that can be found in a tattered garment. A garment is a piece of clothing. Tattered describes something as being worn and ripped. These context clues lead us to know that rent means a large tear. In the second sentence, rent is something that comes due. Often forms of payment are things that are due. Therefore, the most logical definition of rent would be a payment.


Hi there~

You answer is C.

A rent can have different meanings, but in this scene it'll mean large tears; a payment.

Hope this helps


The r in occur is doubled before adding -ence.


This happens quite a lot in verbs e.g run to running. It is because you double the last consonant in a one-syllable noun for it to become a verb. (Keep in mind there are exceptions to this rule.)

Araby by James Joyce (excerpt)

North Richmond Street, being blind, was a quiet street except at the hour when the Christian Brothers' School set the boys free. An uninhabited house of two storeys stood at the blind end, detached from its neighbours in a square ground. The other houses of the street, conscious of decent lives within them, gazed at one another with brown imperturbable faces.

The former tenant of our house, a priest, had died in the back drawing-room. Air, musty from having been long enclosed, hung in all the rooms, and the waste room behind the kitchen was littered with old useless papers. Among these I found a few paper-covered books, the pages of which were curled and damp: The Abbot, by Walter Scott, The Devout Communicant, and The Memoirs of Vidocq. I liked the last best because its leaves were yellow. The wild garden behind the house contained a central apple-tree and a few straggling bushes, under one of which I found the late tenant's rusty bicycle-pump. He had been a very charitable priest; in his will he had left all his money to institutions and the furniture of his house to his sister.

When the short days of winter came, dusk fell before we had well eaten our dinners. When we met in the street the houses had grown sombre. The space of sky above us was the colour of ever-changing violet and towards it the lamps of the street lifted their feeble lanterns. The cold air stung us and we played till our bodies glowed. Our shouts echoed in the silent street. The career of our play brought us through the dark muddy lanes behind the houses, where we ran the gauntlet of the rough tribes from the cottages, to the back doors of the dark dripping gardens where odours arose from the ashpits, to the dark odorous stables where a coachman smoothed and combed the horse or shook music from the buckled harness.
