Identify the sentence using the indicated pronoun correctly. a reciprocal pronoun We were laughing at one another. We were laughing at ourselves.


Answer: The sentence that uses a reciprocal pronoun correctly is "We were laughing at one another".

Explanation: A reciprocal pronoun is a type of pronoun that is used when two or more people are acting in the same way towards the other. In other words, when using a reciprocal pronoun, the actions of the people involved correspond to one another. In English, there are two reciprocal pronouns "each other" and "one another". In that way, the first sentence ("We were laughing at one another") is the correct one because it includes the reciprocal pronoun "one another" and it makes reference to two or more people carrying out the same action, which is laughing, simultaneously. In contrast, the second sentence includes a reflexive pronoun (ourselves).

Well we are laughing at one another sounds like as if they are laughing because of the things they are saying to each other while we are laughing at ourselves sounds like they are just laughing about what they are saying so the correct one would be the first one

A tree doubled in height each year until it reached its maximum height over the course of ten years. How many years did it take for the tree to reach half its maximum height?


Answer: nine years.

Explanation: according to the given prompt, the tree doubled its height each year, therefore we can also say that no matter what year we are in (in the ten years limit), the year before, the tree was half of its size. So, if the tree reaches its maximum height in ten years, that means that the year before that (year number nine), the tree was half of its maximum height. So the answer is nine years.

By Alan E. Nourse

Chapter 1. Trouble Times Two

The sun was glowing dull red as it slipped down behind the curving horizon of Mars, but Gregory Hunter was not able to see it.

There was no viewscreen in the ship's cabin; it was too tiny for that. Greg twisted around in the cockpit that had been built just big enough to hold him, and shifted his long legs against the brace-webbing, trying to get them comfortable.

He knew he was afraid ... but nobody else knew that, not even the captain waiting at the control board on the satellite, and in spite of the fear Greg Hunter would not have traded places at this moment with anyone else in the universe.

He had worked too hard and waited too long for this moment.

He heard the count-down monitor clicking in his ears, and his hands clenched into fists. How far from Mars would he be 10 minutes from now? He didn't know. Farther than any man had ever traveled before in the space of 10 minutes, he knew, and faster. How far and how fast would depend on him alone.

"All set, Greg?" It was the captain's voice in the earphones.

"All set, Captain."

"You understand the program?"

Greg nodded. "24 hours out, 24 hours back, 90 degrees to the ecliptic1, and all the acceleration2 I can stand both ways."

Greg grinned to himself. He thought of the months of conditioning he had gone through to prepare for this run ... the hours in the centrifuge to build up his tolerance to acceleration, the careful diet, the rigorous hours of physical conditioning. It was only one experiment, one tiny step in the work that could someday give men the stars, but to Gregory Hunter at this moment it was everything.

"Good luck, then." The captain cut off, and the blastoff buzzer sounded.

He was off. His heart hammered in his throat, and his eyes ached fiercely, but he paid no attention. His finger crept to the air-speed indicator, then to the cut-off switch. When the pressure became too great, when he began to black out, he would press it.

But not yet. It was speed they wanted; they had to know how much acceleration a man could take for how long and still survive, and now it was up to him to show them.

Fleetingly, he thought of Tom ... poor old stick-in-the-mud Tom, working away in his grubby little Mars-bound laboratory, watching bacteria grow. Tom could never have qualified for a job like this. Tom couldn't even go into free-fall for 10 minutes without getting sick all over the place. Greg felt a surge of pity for his brother, and then a twinge of malicious anticipation. Wait until Tom heard the reports on this run! It was all right to spend your time poking around with bottles and test tubes if you couldn't do anything else, but it took something special to pilot an XP ship for Project Star-Jump. And after this run was over, even Tom would have to admit it....

There was a lurch, and quite suddenly the enormous pressure was gone.

Something was wrong. He hadn't pushed the cut-off button, yet the ship's engines were suddenly silent. He jabbed at the power switch. Nothing happened. Then the side-jets sputted, and he was slammed sideways into the cot.

He snapped on the radio speaker. "Control ... can you hear me? Something's gone wrong out here...."
