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 agree, this is a very badly-worded question. I'd talk to the teacher.
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.
Tell your teacher a thirteen-year-old on the internet says they're doing their job wrong, they'll correct it in no time :I
Tenth grade. It's online school, so the teacher didn't create the questions. :/

it uses a very specific mix of metals that are infused into a wax paper kind of sheet then tightly wrapped around a hotdog with seasonings on the inside

That's a really specific thing to do when you're bored.

You know how some foods make brain chemistry start jumping up and down? If you stick a load of them in a blender you get a really tasty smoothie.
Now that this conversation has attracted so much attention, does anyone actually know the answer to my question!? XD
I think it might be D because it does seem like a plead
Sorry. The INternational Coalition of Midget Geniuses has not reached a conclusion.
we all basically agree

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.
ik but 50k so i can afford all the costs for flights dorm and vehicle
YAY! That's what I thought too! WOOOO! XD
I want to go to Cambridge for the med program.

Cambridge? Yeah, one of the best in the world.
Third, after Oxford, but I'm closer to Cambridge and I've got a legacy.
Read the following lines from “And of Clay Are We Created.” When the station called before dawn, Rolf Carle and I were together. I crawled out of bed, dazed with sleep, and went to prepare coffee while he hurriedly dressed. He stuffed his gear in the green canvas backpack as he always carried, and we said goodbye, as we had so many times before. A. Friendly (No) B. Repetitive (I think this is it) C. Supportive (Could be this one too) D. Sympathetic (No)
so...you got a patent on this hot dog thing you made ??
i looking for a good med college i am going for micro-neuro-technology. im going to oxford for tech and chemistry and i guess cambrige for med what is first semester cost?
And Harvard doesn't count; their first year curriculum is actually covered before school leaving age in the UK.
was thinking repetitive....but am now leaning towards supportive
£9000 for all of England, all the time :)
If you're Scottish Scottish uni is free.
Blargh. This test is SO STINKING AMBIGUOUS! Ugh! I spent like and hour and a half reading these boring stories and poems, totally understood them while reading them, and now they give me questions based on interpretation and assumption. D:<
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)
I agree, so much vague is happening :I
D, I think, but SO MUCH VAGUE
Ikr!!! XD I feel like I'm just guessing now!!
At least you can eliminate some answers.
I once got a multiple choice where every option was a synonym.
Be stoic, we stand with you in confusion.
But I don't want to be stoic. I just want an A. XD
Don't we all.
Well I have an A in the class. I just want to keep it that way. :/
But seriously, this is bollocks. Tell your teacher.
