    That’s when he began singing the songs he’d been writing for years underground, songs no one had ever heard, or anything like them—“Eyes in My Head,” “X’s and O’s,” “Who’s Watching Hardest”—ballads of paranoia and disconnection ripped from the chest of a man you knew just by looking had never had a page or a profile or a handle or a handset, who was part of no one’s data, a guy who had lived in the cracks all these years, forgotten and full of rage, in a way that now registered as pure. Based on the details in this excerpt, it can be inferred that Scotty a. has learned how to hide his true emotions. b.was famous years ago before going into hiding. c.has developed a unique musical style. d. was confused by having gone unnoticed for so long.

    They laughed at his wild excess of speech, of feeling, and of gesture. They were silent before the maniac fury of his sprees, which occurred almost punctually every two months, and lasted two or three days. They picked him foul and witless from the cobbles, and brought him home . . . . And always they handled him with tender care, feeling something strange and proud and glorious lost in [him]. . . . He was a stranger to them: no one—not even Eliza—ever called him by his first name. He was—and remained thereafter—"Mister" Gant. . . . Based on this excerpt, what can be inferred about Oliver’s neighbors? a. They spread gossip about his unusual conduct. b. They consider him a talented man and good friend. c. They think he is a bit peculiar, yet they revere him. d. They worry about his excessive behaviors.

    I believe it would be c since they call him mister for respect but still think he is a bit strange and are not totally comfortable with him. What do you think?

    But they feel that something glorious is lost within him which could be why they revere him.

    okay ike all the older children of Major Pentland she had, since her twentieth year, begun the slow accretion of land: from the savings of her small wage as teacher and book-agent, she had already purchased one or two pieces of earth. From this excerpt, Eliza can best be described as a dutiful daughter. humble teacher. shrewd investor. rich heiress.

    I would say shrewd investor since she is making decisions to buy pieces of land with her saving (probably for profit).

    I'd wash the Amazon river and clean the oily Carib & Gulf of Mexico, Rub that smog off the North Pole, wipe up all the pipelines in Alaska, Rub a dub dub for Rocky Flats and Los Alamos, Flush that sparkly Cesium out of Love Canal In this excerpt, Ginsberg uses repetition to reinforce his idea that the world is in need of a good cleansing. anything is possible with determination. mankind should be more appreciative of nature. manmade disasters are a result of modern technology.

    I think the answer is A because Ginsberg talks about how he want rectify all these disasters caused by mankind in the world. He wants to cleanse them and make them how they used to be.

    I feel like it should be B too since he really does not have any self-reliance at that moment.

    The “Read Books, Share the Love” advertisement effectively uses the association technique to convince people to read more books. The advertisement targets parents who could easily associate the children in the picture with their own children. This has a positive connotation of intimacy and love. The image implies that reading is not just intellectually beneficial, but that it creates a closer bond between parents and their children. Because of this association technique, parents are persuaded to read to their children. Most parents certainly would want their children to do well academically and feel loved at the same time. Therefore, this ad effectively encourages literacy. Which of the following revisions would most improve this paragraph? specific details from the poster a strong topic sentence a discussion of the techniques used in the ad additional information about the ad in general

    I say it would be A since the paragraph really does not specifically enough say anything about the poster besides its title.

    [I’d] Rinse down the Acid Rain over the Parthenon & Sphinx, Drain the Sludge out of the Mediterranean basin & make it azure again, Put some blueing back into the sky over the Rhine. . . . What is the author’s connection to the social and political issues of his day? He hopes to restore fading monuments. He longs to clean-up the world’s pollution. He wants to paint pictures of natural wonders. He aspires to travel to foreign landmarks.\

    I remember distinctly the thrill of climbing aboard a U.S. Army helicopter in the cool of the morning and taking off across the rice fields with a South Vietnamese battalion for a day’s jousting with the Vietcong guerillas. There was hope then that the non-Communist Vietnamese might win their war. I was proud of the young American pilots sitting at the controls in the wingspanpit and I was grateful for the opportunity to witness this adventure and to report it. We are fighting now, I used to think, and some day we will triumph and this will be a better country. Which choice best describes how the author builds conflict in this excerpt? He reflects back and describes his initial optimism of the war. He makes predictions about the possible outcomes of the war. He criticizes the US government for becoming involved in the war. He shares his hopes for the non-Communist Vietnamese.

    Which statement best describes how Ginsberg’s diction contributes to his style in the poem "Homework"? He uses the formal language of news broadcasters to emphasize the need for US intervention. He uses the technical language of governmental agencies to highlight the destruction humans have caused. He uses the persuasive language of television commercials to promote awareness of environmental concerns. He uses the familiar language of household chores to express his desire to correct global issues.

    Then I'd throw big Asia in one giant Load & wash out the blood & Agent Orange, Dump the whole mess of Russia and China in the wringer, squeeze out the tattletail Gray of U.S. Central American police state. . . . How do the allusions in this excerpt reinforce the meaning of the poem? The allusions clarify specific geographic orientation. The allusions emphasize historical achievements. The allusions recall troublesome international issues. The allusions recount specific battles from recent wars.

    Scotty climbed onto the platform and sat on the stool. Without a glance at the audience or a word of introduction, he began to play “I Am a Little Lamb,” a tune whose childishness was belied by the twanging filigree of his slide guitar, its gushy metallic complexity. He followed that with “Goats Like Oats” and “A Little Tree Is Just Like Me.” The amplification was fine and powerful enough to eclipse the chopper throb and deliver the sound even to the distant reaches of the crowd, where it disappeared between buildings. Alex listened in a sort of cringe, expecting a roar of rejection from these thousands he’d managed secretly to assemble, whose goodwill had already been taxed by the long wait. But it didn’t happen; the pointers, who already knew these songs, clapped and screeched their approval, and the adults seemed intrigued, attuned to double meanings and hidden layers, which were easy to find. Which of the following choices best describes the structure used in this excerpt? Multiple switches are used between the action and commentary. A frame story is used to link the different stories together. Sequential order is used to present the events in the order they occur. Flashbacks are used to break with the chronological order of the storyline.
