Read this excerpt from The Time Machine. Then complete the sentences that follow. [The Psychologist] was in the midst of his exposition when the door from the corridor opened slowly and without noise. I was facing the door, and saw it first. "Hallo!" I said. "At last!" And the door opened wider, and the Time Traveller stood before us. I gave a cry of surprise. "Good heavens! man, what's the matter?" cried the Medical Man, who saw him next. And the whole tableful turned towards the door. He was in an amazing plight. His coat was dusty and dirty, and smeared with green down the sleeves; his hair disordered, and as it seemed to me greyer—either with dust and dirt or because its colour had actually faded. His face was ghastly pale; his chin had a brown cut on it—a cut half healed; his expression was haggard and drawn, as by intense suffering. For a moment he hesitated in the doorway, as if he had been dazzled by the light. Then he came into the room. He walked with just such a limp as I have seen in footsore tramps. We stared at him in silence, expecting him to speak.

He said not a word, but came painfully to the table, and made a motion towards the wine. The Editor filled a glass of champagne, and pushed it towards him. He drained it, and it seemed to do him good: for he looked round the table, and the ghost of his old smile flickered across his face. "What on earth have you been up to, man?" said the Doctor. The Time Traveller did not seem to hear. "Don't let me disturb you," he said, with a certain faltering articulation. "I'm all right." He stopped, held out his glass for more, and took it off at a draught. "That's good," he said. His eyes grew brighter, and a faint colour came into his cheeks. His glance flickered over our faces with a certain dull approval, and then went round the warm and comfortable room. Then he spoke again, still as it were feeling his way among his words. "I'm going to wash and dress, and then I'll come down and explain things … Save me some of that mutton. I'm starving for a bit of meat.'

The description about the Time Traveller's physical appearance suggests that he ______
A. had ignored his health while working to finish his time machine
B. was not pleased to see the guests at the dinner table
C. Had traveled to a time where he suffered some hardships
D. Was robbed and beaten before arriving to meet his guests

And his confession about craving a bit of meat suggests that ________
A. He required a certain amount of meat in his daily diet

C. He was glad to have a meal with his friends
D. He was unable to eat meat while visiting another time

What do the changes to the neighborhood suggest about residents felings once upon a time

Answers

Answer: The changes in the neighborhood suggest that the residents are frightened and need protection.

Explanation:

Nadine Gordimer's short story, Once Upon A Time, is set in a suburb where houses are being broken into. One person is murdered, which motivates the neighbors to take precautions to protect themselves. The alarm systems are installed, which is the first change to the neighborhood. However, due to an increase in crime, people realize that the alarms, which also frequently go off without a reason, do not guarantee their safety. People then build walls and fences, which signalizes that they have become even more frightened.

Read this excerpt from the Declaration of Independence. “We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.”

Which best describes the colonists’ view of their relationship with the British government?

The colonists have demanded fair treatment from the British government many times, and they believe separating from Britain is their last resort.
The colonists will continue to demand fair treatment from the British government until they receive what they are asking for.
The colonists view the British as friends, and they do not want to rebel against the British government.
The colonists are eager to go to war with the British as punishment for their unjust treatment of the colonies.

Answers

Answer:

The colonists have demanded fair treatment from the British government many times, and they believe separating from Britain is their last resort.

Explanation:

The tone of the declaration, despite being a text that announces the separation of the colonies from Britain, is notably conciliatory. The reluctance of the colonists to break ties with the mother country is obvious.

The Declaration of Independence is also, however, quite firm in stating that although the colonies would prefer to remain on friendly terms with Britain, they must first ensure that they live in just and fair conditions. To this end, even war is an option.

Answer:

The colonists have demanded fair treatment from the British government many times, and they believe separating from Britain is their last resort.

There will be no end to this exquisite horrible misery. in this excerpt, what does “exquisite” mean? holy elegant perfect colorful

Answers

The word exquisite does not mean any of these things, but for the sake of the quesiton let us say that the most correct answer is perfect, since it means extremely beautiful and delicate

Answer: C. Perfect.

Explanation: the connotation of a word is the meaning given by the context of the word or even by the readers, based on their emotions or personal experiences. It is the antonym of denotation, which is the literal meaning of the word. In the given excerpt we can see the word "exquisite" usually used to describe something beautiful and delicate, used before the words "horrible misery" so, in this context, the word "exquisite" can be interpreted as "perfect."

What is the best strategy for writing a cover letter ?

Answers

First I suggest you use a preformatted cover letter from Microsoft Word and  edit it for your specific needs . For example : If your using a cover letter for a job highlight skills you have that would be a good fit for the job your applying for. If using a cover letter to apply for scholarships or education related things talk about your education history / volunteer/internship information relative to the position. Also .if using to apply for college scholarships it might prove helpful to include something you believe you have in common with the school. In other words show how you are an asset to the school and what similarities  exist between yourself and the school. Hope this helps .
