Check Answers Please! :) Read the following sentences from "The Third Bank of the River." "Father, you have been out there long enough. You are old... Come back, you don't have to do it anymore... Come back and I'll go instead. Right now, if you want. Any time. I'll get into the boat. I'll take your place." Which of the following words best describes the speaker's tone? A. Annoyed (I know it's not this one) B. Desperate (It's either this one or D) C. Determined (I really don't think this one) D. Pleading (It's either this or B) Thanks in advance! I'm in CA, English 2 A, 10th grade, U

    I, too, am torn between D and B. The thing about Pleading is it sort of implicitly means desperate as well. Is there a multiple answer option?

    No, there's not. That's what is so confusing. The answers are basically saying the exact same thing. :/ Thank you for reading, though! :)

    I am going to say B, The context suggests that the child is desperate for the father to stop working.

    Yes, but at the same time, he is begging (pleading) for him to return. It's like, if it's one, it's subsequently the other. :(

    I stand corrected,It would be D, Remember different words in conjunction with other words builds a specific style of text for instance, "come back ill go instead" seems desperate and pleading while the following words " Right now, if you want" seem only pleading.

    I, too, am leaning more towards Pleading than Desperate, but this is worth a large portion of my grade. :/ I may call my teacher too. I think a question on an assignment as heavy as this should be fair. This question doesn't really test comprehension skills accurately.

    Read the following sentences from “When Greek Meets Greek.” Fraser scratch his head. “I know of a landlord up the road who vow that ain’t ever taking anybody who come from the West Indies. But he don’t mind taking Indians. He wouldn’t know the difference when he see you is a Indian… Them English people so foolish they believe every Indian come from India.” Which of the following best describes the speaker’s tone? A. Confused B. Curios C. Mocking D. Scheming Here's a new one! Again, one of two. It's obviously C or D, but it could SO be either.

    Read the following sentences from “The Censors.” Only his darling mother worried, but she couldn’t get him back on the right road. She’d say, thought it wasn’t always true: Lola called, she’s at the bar with the girls, they miss you, they’re waiting for you. Or else she’d leave a bottle of red wine on the table. How does the writer mostly reveal the mother’s character? A. Through her actions (Quite possibly) B. Through her thoughts (Obviously wrong) C. Through the narrator’s description of her (I’m pretty sure it’s this one) D. Through her interactions with other characters (Very slim chance)
