1. Which is true about an effective claim? O It takes a clear position.
O It presents an emotion or feeling
O It is written in first person.
O It shows that your purpose is to inform.
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.

Write a short story with the rising and falling action
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. Hope smiled and told her she always wanted to go to school but her parents couldn't take her because they worked in the fields all day. Hope's parents found her talking to the teacher. Hope's parents scolded her for talking to a stranger and the the teacher introduced herself to them. The parents told the teacher that Hope could not go to school because they work in the fields. 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.

Like he’s a bad man the reverend is the bad person
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.

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.

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.
You answer is C.
A rent can have different meanings, but in this scene it'll mean large tears; a payment.
Hope this helps
