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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, there's not. That's what is so confusing. The answers are basically saying the exact same thing. :/ Thank you for reading, though! :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
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. :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
I agree, this is a very badly-worded question. I'd talk to the teacher.
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
anonymous

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

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.

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 lines from “And of Clay Are We Created.” When the station called before dawn, Rolf Carle and I were together.

Supportive (Could be this one too) D. Sympathetic (No)

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)
