from Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka (1)One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. (2)"What's happened to me?" he thought. It wasn't a dream. His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls. A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table -Samsa was a travelling salesman - and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. (3)Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. "How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense", he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn't get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was. He must have tried it a hundred times, shut his eyes so that he wouldn't have to look at the floundering legs, and only stopped when he began to feel a mild, dull pain there that he had never felt before. Whose view does the author follow throughout this selection? ( The woman in the picture's Gregor Samsa's An all-knowing narrator's The author's
Give me a second so I can read it.
Same writing passage, different question The above selection describes a scene that should be terrifying. However, the author uses pacing to create a different effect. What is this effect? Romantic Humorous Bewilderment Excitement
I believe the correct answer is An All-Knowing Narrator's.
I would say All-Knowing Narrator's. and Bewilderment
Bewilderment. I don't see any humor, Romance, or Excitement in that passage.
I thought it was all-knowing as well. Then theirs this - This passage reveals that Gregor is cruel lazy hardworking passive Which of the following is the best summary of paragraph 1?

In this passage, what do you learn about Gregor? He is dreaming he is a bug. He has actually become a bug. He has to work at home a lot. He cannot be upset when he's in his room . One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. What does the word "horrible" suggest about Gregor's new appearance? He looks recklessly wild. He looks tired and worn out. He looks absolutely revolting. He looks worthless and sad. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. What does the word "pitifully" suggest about Gregor's legs in their current state? (5 points) They are enormously long but very thin at the same time. They are delightfully trim compared to the rest of his body. They create a majestic look as they are paired with his large body. They help create an overall pathetic appearance. After these I have a few more about Abraham lincolns main passage he wrote.. this is soooo much appreciated too! thank u guys,
1. B 2. C 3. D
Read this excerpt from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and then answer the question that follows: (1) Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation: conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war ... testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated ... can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. (2) We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that this nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate ... we cannot consecrate ... we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
The tone of this speech is most similar to which of these? (5 points) A critical review of a work of art A philosopher's body of writing An inspirational eulogy at a funeral A lecture on the nation's historical development Pay close attention to the word choice in the passage. What is the purpose of this speech? (5 points) To anger and excite To honor and inspire To soften and retreat To alter and change What is the main purpose of the first paragraph of this speech?

It provides a transition between arguments.
I don't know these, sorry.
I'm still trying, though. I don't want to give you a wrong answer, you know?
