Create a paraphrase of the following sentence from "The Cold Equations:" "Our time is up, Gerry—I have to go, now. Good—" Her voice broke in mid-word and her mouth tried to twist into crying.

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

The Cold Equations: She told Gerry that their time was up and so she should leave. She said this trying not to cry, but her voice broke in the middle of the words.

Explanation:

The word paraphrase has a Greek origin (para-phrasis) and generally means “repetition of a sentence”. Paraphrasing a text, therefore, means recreating it with other words, but keeping its original content / thinking unchanged. Paraphrase is a widely used resource in many contexts, being very recurrent in the literary, scientific, religious texts and daily dialogues (when we want to pass on information or tell someone something we hear from others).

Answer 2
Answer: The Cold Equations: Our time is up. I told Gerry I had to go. Her voice broke mid-sentence, almost crying. (Did I do good, I hope so have a good one!)

2. Tell the manager you cannot stock the item 
I´m not sure really, the first three are good options  

For the second question I would choose:
2. Ask the manager if you can get off early, but do not mention that you might be sick.
I mean after all you are well enough to work so it doesn´t really matter at the time
The last one because there is no one else in the store so it's only u and u can just make ur life easier.

HELPPPP :0 CHAPTER II—THE SHE-WOLF, an excerpt
From White Fang
By Jack London

Breakfast eaten and the slim camp-outfit lashed to the sled, the men turned their backs on the cheery fire and launched out into the darkness. At once began to rise the cries that were fiercely sad—cries that called through the darkness and cold to one another and answered back. Conversation ceased. Daylight came at nine o'clock. At midday the sky to the south warmed to rose-colour, and marked where the bulge of the earth intervened between the meridian sun and the northern world. But the rose-colour swiftly faded. The grey light of day that remained lasted until three o'clock, when it, too, faded, and the pall of the Arctic night descended upon the lone and silent land.

As darkness came on, the hunting-cries to right and left and rear drew closer—so close that more than once they sent surges of fear through the toiling dogs, throwing them into short-lived panics.

At the conclusion of one such panic, when he and Henry had got the dogs back in the traces, Bill said:

"I wisht they'd strike game somewheres, an' go away an' leave us alone."

"They do get on the nerves horrible," Henry sympathized.

They spoke no more until camp was made.

Answers

Answer is option A that is heavy reliance on rhythm and word sound.

Answer:

The one that is less typical of odes than of other types of poetry is a heavy reliance on rhythm and word sounds

Explanation:

Some of the most important characteristics of the odes refer to their moderate length and how serious they are towards the object they are talking about, they have an elevated style in word choice and stanza pattern, they are made to praise something or someone, then the only option that is not very common is the reliance on rhythm and word sounds.

Read the sentence. Bobcats get their name from their clipped tails.
Is the participle in this sentence present, past, or perfect?
past
perfect
present

Answers

The participle in this sentence is "past"

Participles have different functions within a sentence. In this case, the past participle is "clipped" and ends with "ed".  The past participle "clipped" functions as an adjective since it is modifying the noun "tails".

The option "present" is incorrect since present participles are formed by verb infinive+ing.

Present participle would be 'clipping'. Perfect participle would be 'having clipped'. Therefore, the only option left is 'past participle'.
