In the following passage from Great Astronomers by Robert Stewall Ball, the author states that he will trace the developments in astronomy from the time of Ptolemy to the nineteenth century. Based on the content and style of the excerpt, what kind of audience did Ball primarily have in mind when he was writing this book? The history of astronomy thus becomes inseparable from the history of the great men to whose labours its development is due. In the ensuing chapters we have endeavoured to sketch the lives and the work of the great philosophers, by whose labours the science of astronomy has been created. We shall commence with Ptolemy, who, after the foundations of the science had been laid by Hipparchus, gave to astronomy the form in which it was taught throughout the Middle Ages. We shall next see the mighty revolution in our conceptions of the universe which are associated with the name of Copernicus. We then pass to those periods illumined by the genius of Galileo and Newton, and afterwards we shall trace the careers of other more recent discoverers, by whose industry and genius the boundaries of human knowledge have been so greatly extended. Our history will be brought down late enough to include some of the illustrious astronomers who laboured in the generation which has just passed away. A. students specializing in the study of astronomy B. people with a casual interest in astronomy C. scientists and mathematicians working with astronomers D. geologists and cartographers

The best and most correct answer among the choices provided by the question is the third choice or letter C.

Scientists and mathematicians working with astronomers are kind of audience did Ball primarily have in mind when he was writing the book.

1. Which is the best paraphrase of the first paragraph? THE HIGH SCHOOL STEP TEAM Karla's cousin Jade urged her to join the step team."This afternoon you should defiantly try out!" Jade suggested after the final bell rang. "I know she wants the best for me," Karla thought to herself," but I'm not sure I'd be any good, and I'd feel embarrassed if I messed up in front of others." Karla had seen step teams in action: they stomped, they clapped, and they performed all kinds of synchronized moves "Our team is not as amazing as professional steppers, but we have a lot of fun!" Jade said. "Also, if you join the team, you will instantly have forty new friends!" "I like the idea of forty new friends," Karla thought to herself. "Still, I'm worried about bringing up my math grade. I'd better play it safe for now" she decided. "I really appreciate your concern, but I've got to say no thanks for now" Karla told Jade. " I'm going for after school help in math" As Karla turned away from Jade and walked down the hall towards math class, she pictured her cousin shrugging her shoulders "Okay do whatever you think is best," Jade said. I'll see you at home" Karla went to the after school math session. The work was challenging and she had to concentrate, and she The teacher said nice things to Karla about her efforts to grasp the ideas the were studying "And yet" Karla thought" I still have a lot of work and study ahead of me" When the afterschool math session ended Karla peeked into the gym. "Hey that's my cousin!" Jade cried out. "Come over here Karla." Forty male and female students stopped in midroutine to look at Karla. Too embarrassed to refuse , she joined one of the lines Karla soon learned that stepping requires a lot of mental energy. "It's something like math" she thought silently, "but not exactly the same. I have to connect my brain to my body and make it move or stop at exactly the right moment. The key here is to execute every movement skillfully" Very soon, Karla had mastered the teams trademark "Slap-finger-snap-slap-slap-stomp That night, Karla got to work on math At first ,she felt guilty about the time she spent in gym. Then she reminded herself of the of saying."All work and no play make Jack a dull boy." An English teacher once told her the origins of the cliché go all the way back to ancient Egypt. As Karla Worked she was surprised to find that she suddenly understood her algebra problems better than she had before. "there must be some carryover effect from step practice," she concluded. The concentration and focus that she exercised in step team practice seemed to help her focus more clearly on her math. Karla smiled as she thought," Who would have guessed that spending time with step team might be more helpful to my math grade than spending time on math work?" Later Karla was as much as a member of the step team as anybody" I don't feel the least bit embarrassed anymore" She told Jade "When I am stepping I feel completely focused on the rhythm of the team and working together with my forty new friends. •After school , jade tells her cousin Karla to try out for the step team . •Jade cares about her cousin Karla and makes a suggestion to her. •Karla listens as her cousin jade tells her about being on the step team. •Karla hears the bell ring and runs into her cousin jade.

The best paraphrase of the first paragraph is...

  • After school, Jade tells her cousin Karla to try out for the step team.

In the first paragraph Jade is trying to convice Karla to join the step team. It goes on to talk about how Karla is nervous about trying out because she doesn't want to mess up in front of others. While Jade cares about Karla, it isn't the most important part of the paragraph.

First Impressions As the moving truck pulled away from her new house, Cris commenced unpacking her things and breaking in her new accommodations, all the while contemplating her first day of school, which began tomorrow. Before moving, her dad had explained how crucial a good first impression could be and offered a recommendation. She had no idea if his absurd advice would work, but she was willing to give it a chance. The next morning, as Cris gathered her things to make it to the bus stop on time, she took one last glance at her reflection in the mirror. "Here goes nothing," she murmured before yelling goodbye to her parents as she raced out the front door. Cris arrived first at the bus stop, and while she frantically paced back and forth, she noticed another girl struggling to carry multiple bags. Cris decided on the spot to embrace her dad's advice and rushed over to the girl. "Let me help you with those!" she squelched in an outlandish cartoon voice, hoping to break the ice. "I'm Cris." "Huh . . . oh, thanks! I'm Aishah," she said with a stuttering giggle. "Why do you have so many bags?" "These are decorations for the upcoming school dance. Say, would you mind helping me get them set up?" Aishah asked suddenly. "Uh, sure!" exclaimed Cris at the unexpected offer. Cris was working through a set of problems during her midday Geometry class, when she noticed the boy next to her struggling on a practice problem that she, too, worked hard to solve. She could see his frustration beginning to bubble to the surface, so she took a deep breath, thought of the funniest character she could and asked, "Help with your problem, do you need?" "What? Oh, yes," the boy chuckled. "I'm usually quick with probability, but I don't understand geometry equations quite so easily." "Yeah, it gave me trouble too. Let me show you how I derived the answer." Cris began as she demonstrated the solution and explained it, this time without the absurd voice. "Thanks for the help. I'm Jackson, by the way." "Cris, nice to meet you." When Cris arrived home, she began thinking of all the new voices she could use to win over new friends. She began practicing a new one when her dad walked in and asked, "So, how was your day?" "Great! I'm helping Aishah with the school dance decorations, and I met Jackson by aiding him with a geometry equation. And they seemed to really like my first impressions! I just hope they like my second ones, as well." Character - WHO? Plot - WHAT? Setting - WHERE? Cris in the classroom What belongs in the empty space? A. What belongs in the empty space? B. helps another student solve a math problem C. helps decorate for the school dance helps unpack boxes

Identify the incorrect sentence. a. i have been working on this math problem all night. b. the miners have been digging for weeks. c. the movie been running for three hours. d. the two countries have been fighting for more than fifty years.

Answer:

Sentence "c" is incorrect.

Explanation:

The sentence "the movie been running for three hours" is ungrammatical because the verb "been" which is in the past participle form plus the verb "running" which is in the progressive form indicates that an action that started in the past is still in progress. The name of this tense is present perfect progressive and It is formed with the auxiliary have + been + V-ING. That's why the sentence "the movie been running for three hours" is wrong because the verb requires the auxiliary "have" to form the present perfect progressive. So the correct version would be: "the movie has been running for three hours."

My father had a small estate in Nottinghamshire; I was the third of five sons. He sent me to Emanuel College in Cambridge, at fourteen years old, where I resided three years, and applied myself close to my studies; but the charge of maintaining me, although I had a very scanty allowance, being too great for a narrow fortune, I was bound to apprentice to Mr. James Bates, an eminent surgeon in London, with whom I continued four years; and my father now and then sending me small sums of money, I laid them out in learning navigation, and other parts of the mathematics, useful to those who intend to travel, as I always believed it would be, some time or other, my fortune to do. Which of the following excerpts from the passage above illustrates narrator reliability? I. "He sent me to Emanuel College in Cambridge . . . ." II. "I was bound to apprentice to Mr. James Bates . . . ." III. "I laid them out in learning navigation . . . ." III only I only I, II, and III II and III

The answer is: Statement I only:
_____________________________
I. "He sent me to Emanuel College in Cambridge  . . . ."

And thus for a time I was occupied by exploded systems, mingling, like an unadept, a thousand contradictory theories and floundering desperately in a very slough of multifarious knowledge, guided by an ardent imagination and childish reasoning, till an accident again changed the current of my ideas. When I was about fifteen years old we had retired to our house near Belrive, when we witnessed a most violent and terrible thunderstorm. It advanced from behind the mountains of Jura, and the thunder burst at once with frightful loudness from various quarters of the heavens. I remained, while the storm lasted, watching its progress with curiosity and delight. As I stood at the door, on a sudden I beheld a stream of fire issue from an old and beautiful oak which stood about twenty yards from our house; and so soon as the dazzling light vanished, the oak had disappeared, and nothing remained but a blasted stump. When we visited it the next morning, we found the tree shattered in a singular manner. It was not splintered by the shock, but entirely reduced to thin ribbons of wood. I never beheld anything so utterly destroyed. Before this I was not unacquainted with the more obvious laws of electricity. On this occasion a man of great research in natural philosophy was with us, and excited by this catastrophe, he entered on the explanation of a theory which he had formed on the subject of electricity and galvanism, which was at once new and astonishing to me. All that he said threw greatly into the shade Cornelius Agrippa, Albertus Magnus, and Paracelsus, the lords of my imagination; but by some fatality the overthrow of these men disinclined me to pursue my accustomed studies. It seemed to me as if nothing would or could ever be known. All that had so long engaged my attention suddenly grew despicable. By one of those caprices of the mind which we are perhaps most subject to in early youth, I at once gave up my former occupations, set down natural history and all its progeny as a deformed and abortive creation, and entertained the greatest disdain for a would-be science which could never even step within the threshold of real knowledge. In this mood of mind I betook myself to the mathematics and the branches of study appertaining to that science as being built upon secure foundations, and so worthy of my consideration. What is the effect of having Victor summarize the events of his childhood rather than telling them in detail? Readers can only guess at who Victor really is. Readers can see the events from more than one perspective. Readers cannot form an opinion without Victor's interpretation. Readers see little to suggest Victor is guilty of any crime. I am not sure about this one but I think the answer is the third one

How does the author compare mathematical language to ordinary language?

mathematical language is unambiguous and hence accepted universally and makes life uniform for all. Rather than sticking to any language which has tricks to fool you, 'write in mathematics than writing in English!'

Help? Just one paragraph, don't worry. excerpt from "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant Mathilde suffered ceaselessly, feeling herself born to enjoy all delicacies and all luxuries. She was distressed at the poverty of her dwelling, at the bareness of the walls, at the shabby chairs, the ugliness of the curtains. All these things, which another woman of her rank would never even have noticed, tortured her and made her angry. The sight of the little Breton peasant who did her humble housework aroused in her despairing regrets and bewildering dreams. She thought of silent antechambers hung with Oriental tapestry, illumined by tall lamps of bronze, with two tall footmen in knee breeches asleep in the big armchairs, made drowsy by the oppressive heat of the stove. She thought of long reception halls hung with ancient silk, of the dainty cabinets containing priceless curiosities, and of the little coquettish perfumed reception rooms made for chatting at five o'clock with intimate friends, with men famous and sought after, whom all women envy and whose attention they all desire. Which statement best explains how the first two sentences affect the text? A) They create tension by comparing the reality of Mathilde’s life with what she wishes her life could be like. B) They provide background information about the main character so readers can better connect with her and understand her struggles. C) They generate sadness and pity by showing readers that Mathilde must hide her poverty from her friends in order to be accepted. D) They create humor by revealing Mathilde’s ability to create an imaginary world, which she prefers over her real life.

The correct answer is b
