Which sentence in this passage contains redundancy? As poor discipline and misbehavior have become problems in schools across the country, many parents and teachers have come up with a new solution—school uniforms. Many supporters of uniforms in school claim that just introducing a common uniform can reduce these problems. And they have the statistics to support their claim. In the Long Beach California School District, statistics show that school fights and violence went down by 74 percent after uniforms were introduced. The parents and teachers demanding the introduction of school uniforms say that they will reduce misbehavior, cut down violence and fighting, and improve discipline among students. They say kids can often become obsessed with style sense and designer brands. When all students wear the same uniform, pressure on students to impress their classmates goes down.

Answer:

Answer:

In the Long Beach California School District, statistics show that school fights and violence went down by 74 percent after uniforms were introduced.

Explanation:

This sentence has redundancy because it repeats information twice. This is the information that is repeated:

In the Long Beach California School District, statistics show that school fights and violence went down by 74 percent after uniforms were introduced.

Note that statistics and 74 percent mean the same thing. In other words, the  same information has been expressed twice in the paper.

An alternative will be re-writing the sentence like this:

  • In the Long Beach California School District,  school fights and violence went down by 74 percent after uniforms were introduced.

In the sentence above, the information is not repeated twice.

Fact and Opinion Direction: Read each statement and then circle whether it is a fact or opinion.Explain your answer.
1-The fastest land dwelling creature is the Cheetah.
Fact or Opinion Explain:
2-the ugliest sea creature is the manatee.
Fact or Opinion Explain:
3-prison is one of the worst places on the planet.
4-Oranges contain both calcium and vitamin C.

Answers

1-The fastest land dwelling creature is the Cheetah.

Fact.  This is fact because it can be verified.

 

2-the ugliest sea creature is the manatee.

Opinion.  Because opinions vary and beauty (or ugliness) is relative, perspectives on what is considered “ugly” will vary.

 

3-prison is one of the worst places on the planet.

Opinion.  This is a relative thought.  To some, prison might be considered a good place.  In fact, there are instances where convicts cannot function in society after a long prison term and commit crimes to be returned to prison because society has become a bad place—a place where hardships outweigh those they faced in prison.


4-Oranges contain both calcium and vitamin C.

Fact.  This is something that can be tested and verified as true.

 

NOTE:  When trying to determine whether something is a fact or an opinion, just be sure to keep in mind that if the statement can be proven, it is fact; if the statement cannot be proven, it must be an opinion.

1. Fact, scientific experimentation has proven that the cheetah is the fastest land dwelling creature.
2. Opinion, because the manatee is not proven to the ugliest sea creature and some people may like them.
3. Opinion, because not all people hate prison it may be bad but not to all people.
4. Fact, scientific experimentation has proven that oranges contain both calcium and vitamin c.
