1. Which of the following sources is the LEAST reliable? (1 point) a government Web site a scholar's dissertation an online forum's posting


An online forum's posting is the least reliable because there could be false information and there would be no one to confirm the answer legitimately. A government web site is most secure and trusting, but don't trust it too much, think about the information that is given to you. A scholar's dissertation is in the middle because it is basically researcher's notes, true facts, sometimes, they can be false, but most of the time, they're true.

Which sentence in this excerpt from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” speech suggests that the US government would gain more power to prepare for war? The Congress, of course, must rightly keep itself informed at all times of the progress of the program. However, there is certain information, as the Congress itself will readily recognize, which, in the interests of our own security and those of the nations that we are supporting, must of needs be kept in confidence. New circumstances are constantly begetting new needs for our safety. I shall ask this Congress for greatly increased new appropriations and authorizations to carry on what we have begun. I also ask this Congress for authority and for funds sufficient to manufacture additional munitions and war supplies of many kinds, to be turned over to those nations which are now in actual war with aggressor nations. Our most useful and immediate role is to act as an arsenal for them as well as for ourselves. They do not need man power, but they do need billions of dollars worth of the weapons of defense. The time is near when they will not be able to pay for them all in ready cash. We cannot, and we will not, tell them that they must surrender, merely because of present inability to pay for the weapons which we know they must have. I do not recommend that we make them a loan of dollars with which to pay for these weapons—a loan to be repaid in dollars. Choices: first sentence ; third sentence ; fourth sentence ; ninth sentence ; tenth sentence

Based on the given excerpt above from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” speech, the sentence that suggests that the US government would gain more power to prepare for war would be the fourth sentence:  I shall ask this Congress for greatly increased new appropriations and authorizations to carry on what we have begun. Hope this answers your question.

Which excerpt from John Muir’s “Save the Redwoods” best appeals to readers’ logic? a. Could one of these Sequoia Kings come to town in all its godlike majesty so as to be strikingly seen and allowed to plead its own cause, there would never again be any lack of defenders. b. Forty-seven years ago one of these Calaveras King Sequoias was laboriously cut down, that the stump might be had for a dancing-floor. Another, one of the finest in the grove, more than three hundred feet high, was skinned alive to a height of one hundred and sixteen feet from the ground and the bark sent to London to show how fine and big that Calaveras tree was—as sensible a scheme as skinning our great men would be to prove their greatness. c. These kings of the forest, the noblest of a noble race, rightly belong to the world, but as they are in California we cannot escape responsibility as their guardians. Fortunately the American people are equal to this trust . . . as soon as they see it and understand it. d. The Tuolumne and Merced groves near Yosemite, the Dinky Creek grove, those of the General Grant National Park and the Sequoia National Park, with several outstanding groves that are nameless on the Kings, Kaweah, and Tule river basins, and included in the Sierra forest reservation, have of late years been partially protected by the Federal Government; while the well-known Mariposa Grove has long been guarded by the State.

Write an argument for the issue: Driverless cars are becoming a thing of the future. They are considered smarter, safer, and more reliable. Do you agree or disagree? Write a 1 paragraph paper introducing the issue and making your claim.

Whether or not you agree or disagree, I do not know. But I will give you my opinion and if you need me to come up with another paragraph, just ask.

Mankind has come a very far way with technology development, so far in fact, driverless cars are beginning to come about. But whether this new form of transport is safe for us or not: that is the question. From my point of view, driverless cars may look and seem safe from the outside, but as that popular saying goes: "Don't judge a book by its cover.". I have to disagree with this new form of technology, mostly due to the fact that it is a huge advancement from the cars that we have to steer ourselves. Simply putting in your destination for the car to take you there does not seem very safe at all, or even trustworthy for that matter. What if some controls that cause the car to steer itself just so happen to malfunction? What if it takes you to a completely different destination than the one you were originally going to? What if you had to get to that specific destination at a certain time? You could get in trouble if you were late to such an event, or even your job. Plus, you need to consider the fact that this driverless car needs to know its surroundings at all times. What if it just so happens to go through a red light, and cause a car accident? What if it doesn't recognize the pedestrian jaywalking across the street, and hits him? What if you're driving on the highway, and the car goes over the speed limit? A police officer could catch that and pull you over, y'know. You need to make sure at all times that there is nothing wrong with your driverless car, especially if it has something to do with recognizing its surroundings, because it could just cause an accident at any moment, and you would be put to blame for it. My final point is that considering the fact that driverless cars are a huge technology development, they will cost a hefty price. If someone is considering buying one of these vehicles, they would have to consider the pros and cons of buying one, and whether it is really worth it or not. And having to get something repaired on it could also come at a big price, especially if one of the main features of the car is broken. To conclude my opinion, I believe that driverless cars may not be so safe, smart, and reliable as they may look from the outside. The manufacturers will have to run many experiments on them and to make sure the car itself and all of its features work properly before putting it out on the market. So, let's stick with the cars we can control ourselves for now until mankind is certain that they will have the capability of owning driverless cars.

I hope this helps you! (And I hope it's not too long, either... I'm known for getting carried away with writing! xD)
