anonymous one year ago "Carsons' mill! Ay, there is a mill on fire somewhere, sure enough by the light, and it will be a rare blaze, for there's not a drop o' water to be got. And much Carsons will care, for they're well insured, and the machines are a' th' oud-fashioned kind. See if they don't think it a fine thing for themselves. They'll not thank them as tries to put it out."

This paragraph does all of the following except: A. reveal background information about Carson and his mill. B. reveal that the local people speak with a vernacular dialect. C. explain the cause of the fire. D. suggest that the fire will be difficult to control. E. suggest that people in the community do not like Carson. **I know that B is not the answer, nor is choice D, but quite unsure about the rest :/ @Whitemonsterbunny17 :)

2. Whitemonsterbunny17

Well, since you know that both B and D are incorrect, you've already eliminated two choices. What else can you eliminate?

3. anonymous

choice C? they do not reveal the cause, right?

4. Whitemonsterbunny17

'Tis in the first sentence. :p

5. anonymous

"sure enough by the light" ? is that what causes the fire? what is the light?

6. Whitemonsterbunny17

Ah, there you go! ^.^

7. Whitemonsterbunny17

Now what does it say about the water?

8. anonymous

ohhh okay! what exactly is the light? haha and it says there is not a drop of water near?

9. Whitemonsterbunny17

The light is the sun, which is hot so it can cause fire. And right, so if there's no water, can the fire be put out easily?

10. anonymous

ohh and so no it cannot! so it is either A or E? :/

11. Whitemonsterbunny17

The beginning of the third sentence should clear it up for you.

12. anonymous

ohh so they do not like Carson? so the answer should be choice A?

13. Whitemonsterbunny17

The last sentence also proves that you are correct. $$\Large\frak\color{lime}{\bigstar~Great~Work!~\bigstar}$$

14. anonymous

ooh yay! thank you!!:D
