A two-column proof A- uses a visual representation of the logical flow of steps needed to reach a conclusion. B- contains a table with a logical series of statements and reasons that reach a conclusion. C- contains a set of sentences explaining the steps needed to reach a conclusion. D- uses inductive reasoning to prove a statement.
Organizing a proof in geometry is the common way in a two column proof. In two-column proof, it consists of two columns one for reasons and one for statements. In the reason column, each statement is justified appropriately, which may include conjectures, theorems or definitions.
Therefore, a two column proof contains a table with a logical series of statements and reasons that reach a conclusion.

Read the excerpt below, and then select one prompt. You will choose to write either a narrative essay or an informational response paragraph. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, excerpt By Mark Twain When Tom awoke in the morning, he wondered where he was. He sat up and rubbed his eyes and looked around. Then he comprehended. It was the cool gray dawn, and there was a delicious sense of repose and peace in the deep pervading calm and silence of the woods. Not a leaf stirred; not a sound obtruded [interrupted] upon great Nature's meditation. Beaded dewdrops stood upon the leaves and grasses. A white layer of ashes covered the fire, and a thin blue breath of smoke rose straight into the air. Joe and Huck still slept. Now, far away in the woods a bird called; another answered; presently the hammering of a woodpecker was heard. Gradually the cool dim gray of the morning whitened, and as gradually sounds multiplied and life manifested itself. The marvel of Nature shaking off sleep and going to work unfolded itself to the musing boy. A little green worm came crawling over a dewy leaf, lifting two-thirds of his body into the air from time to time and "sniffing around," then proceeding again—for he was measuring, Tom said; and when the worm approached him, of its own accord, he sat as still as a stone, with his hopes rising and falling, by turns, as the creature still came toward him or seemed inclined to go elsewhere; and when at last it considered a painful moment with its curved body in the air and then came decisively down upon Tom's leg and began a journey over him, his whole heart was glad .... Now a procession of ants appeared, from nowhere in particular, and went about their labors; one struggled manfully by with a dead spider five times as big as itself in its arms, and lugged it straight up a tree-trunk. A brown spotted lady-bug climbed the dizzy height of a grass blade, and Tom bent down close to it and said, "Lady-bug, lady-bug, fly away home, your house is on fire, your children's alone," and she took wing and went off to see about it—which did not surprise the boy, for he knew of old that this insect was credulous [trusting] about conflagrations [fires], and he had practised upon its simplicity more than once. A tumblebug came next, heaving sturdily at its ball, and Tom touched the creature, to see it shut its legs against its body and pretend to be dead. The birds were fairly rioting by this time. A catbird, the Northern mocker, lit in a tree over Tom's head, and trilled out her imitations of her neighbors in a rapture of enjoyment; then a shrill jay swept down, a flash of blue flame, and stopped on a twig almost within the boy's reach, cocked his head to one side and eyed the strangers with a consuming curiosity; a gray squirrel and a big fellow of the "fox" kind came skurrying along, sitting up at intervals to inspect and chatter at the boys, for the wild things had probably never seen a human being before and scarcely knew whether to be afraid or not. All Nature was wide awake and stirring, now; long lances of sunlight pierced down through the dense foliage far and near, and a few butterflies came fluttering upon the scene. ------------------------ Select only one prompt.

Read the excerpt from "A Pair of Silk Stockings." She was not going through any acute mental process or reasoning with herself, nor was she striving to explain to her satisfaction the motive of her action. She was not thinking at all. She seemed for the time to be taking a rest from that laborious and fatiguing function and to have abandoned herself to some mechanical impulse that directed her actions and freed her of responsibility. Which topic is represented in the excerpt? the joys and pitfalls of motherhood the brief rejection of an obligatory role the subconscious desire for luxury the pressures of a forceful society
The answer is B (filler text)

Match each bolded word in this excerpt from Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Contest" with a word that is closest in meaning. In the year of our Lord 66, the Emperor Nero, being at that time in the twenty-ninth year of his life and the thirteenth of his reign, set sail for Greece with the strangest company and the most singular design that any monarch has ever entertained. With ten galleys he went forth from Puteoli, carrying with him great stores of painted scenery and theatrical properties, together with a number of knights and senators, whom he feared to leave behind him at Rome, and who were all marked for death in the course of his wanderings. In his train he took Natus, his singing coach; Cluvius, a man with a monstrous voice, who should bawl out his titles; and a thousand trained youths who had learned to applaud in unison whenever their master sang or played in public. So deftly had they been taught that each had his own rôle to play. Some did no more than give forth a low deep hum of speechless appreciation. Some clapped with enthusiasm. Some, rising from approbation into absolute frenzy, shrieked, stamped, and beat sticks upon the benches. Some—and they were the most effective—had learned from an Alexandrian a long droning musical note which they all uttered together, so that it boomed over the assembly. With the aid of these mercenary admirers, Nero had every hope, in spite of his indifferent voice and clumsy execution, to return to Rome, bearing with him the chaplets for song offered for free competition by the Greek cities. singular: approbation: mercenary: strange beautiful shouting praise faithful flattering punishment choose one for the three listed above
approbation = praise
mercenary = faithful

All African-Americans live in a democracy. Martin Luther King, Jr. is an African-American. He deserves democratic rights. Although this is true, what kind of reasoning is it? A)the fallacy of logos in inductive reasoning B)the fallacy of logos in deductive reasoning C)the fallacy of pathos about democracies D)the fallacy of ethos in King’s citizenship
B)the fallacy of logos in deductive reasoning
This is a fallacy because it makes a wrong deduction from the presented premise. Martin Luther King is an African-American and African Americans live in a democracy. You can say that Martin Luther King lives in a democracy, but there's nothing in the premise about deserving. Maybe he has the rights and doesn't deserve them.
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

Read the excerpt from Act I, scene I of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo: Well, in that hit you miss: she’ll not be hit With Cupid’s arrow; she hath Dian’s wit; And, in strong proof of chastity well arm’d, From love’s weak childish bow she lives unharm’d. She will not stay the siege of loving terms, Which is the best meaning of the phrase "she’ll not be hit with Cupid’s arrow”? A. She loves Romeo but does not want to marry him. B. She believes Romeo does not really love her.C. She does not want to fall in love with anyone. D. She is too young to understand the meaning of love.
C. She does not want to fall in love with anyone.
Romero is sure that Juliet loves him and that she is in love with him, and because this was meant to be, they´ve already been hit with Cupids arrows, they are already mad in love for eachother, that why she can´t be hit again, and she can not fall in love with anyone else but him.
Can any obstacle or disadvantage be turned into something good? Obstacles, which are the essential part of our lives, often seem to prevent us from reaching our goals and frustrate us. Therefore, most people think that difficulties are bound to exert negative influence on us. As far as I am concerned, people can benefit from the obstacles they encounter. In deed, obstacles often makes it harder for us to succeed, but when we look back, we will find that obstacles give us valuable experience and push us to achieve greatness. Steve Jobs, the world-famous entrepreneur, was once fired by Apple, the company he started. At that time, he was extremely frustrated. But he finally found that he still loved his job and started a new company. As a beginner free of pressure, he was more creative than ever. His new company created the world¡¯s first animated feature film and became the world¡¯s best animation studio. When he returned to Apple after Apple bought his company, what he developed in his company became the heart of Apple¡¯s renaissance. He regarded this great obstacle as the best thing happening in his life. Had he not been dismissed, he might not be able to fully exploit his potential as well as creativity and would not achieve greatness as he does now. Colonel Sanders, the founder of KFC, first served his fried chickens in his gas station in Corbin for the travelers heading to Florida. Unfortunately, after the construction of Interstate 75, which bypassed Corbin and dramatically reduced his customer traffic, he was forced to sell his properties and travel the US to sell his chicken at the age of 65. It was on the travel that he met Peter Harman. Together, they opened the first KFC outlets and in 10 years, their chickens were sold in over 600 franchised outlets in North America. If Interstate 75 was not constructed, Sanders might sell his chickens in his gas station until his death and was unlikely to develop KFC into such a big company. The two examples above demonstrate that though obstacles adversely affect our lives contemporarily, they actually bring us benefit in the future. If it was not for the difficulties we met, we might not have the chance to improve ourselves and make greater achievements in our lives. Please give me some advice. Thank u!
In essence, a reader-friendly text is a document that is created with the comfort and the needs of the reader as the central guiding framework. Usually, when a writer wants to make a document, reader-friendly, he/she needs to think about his/her audience, their age level, their comprehension capacity, their language and language skills, the topics that he/she will use and that are oriented towards pleasing an audience, as well as many other things that must be kept in mind. In order to please, an audience, and depending on age range, language skills and comprehension level, some factor that can make the text reader-friendly are: clear, friendly tone, because it connect the reader to the writer by bringing things closer to the reader´s level, the use of simple text definitions of unfamiliar terms, because it helps with the reader´s comprehension and visual elements, which help to ensure further comprehension through the engagement of the visual sense.
Which of these lines from the play indicates that Brutus fears Caesar will become a corrupt ruler? "It must be by his death, and for my part/I know no personal cause to spurn at him" "And, to speak truth of Caesar/I have not known when his affections swayed/More than his reason." "But 'tis a common proof/That lowliness is young ambition's ladder," "Crown him that,/And then I grant we put a sting in him/That at his will he may do danger with." Brutus It must be by his death, and for my part I know no personal cause to spurn at him But for the general. He would be crowned. How that might change his nature, there's the question. It is the bright day that brings forth the adder And that craves wary walking. Crown him that, And then I grant we put a sting in him That at his will he may do danger with. Th' abuse of greatness is when it disjoins Remorse from power. And, to speak truth of Caesar, I have not known when his affections swayed More than his reason. But 'tis a common proof That lowliness is young ambition's ladder, Whereto the climber upward turns his face. But when he once attains the upmost round, He then unto the ladder turns his back, Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees By which he did ascend. So Caesar may. Then, lest he may, prevent. And since the quarrel Will bear no color for the thing he is, Fashion it thus: that what he is, augmented, Would run to these and these extremities. And therefore think him as a serpent's egg- Which, hatched, would as his kind grow mischievous- And kill him in the shell.
Answer: "Crown him that,/And then I grant we put a sting in him/That at his will he may do danger with."
These lines reveal Brutus's fear that Caesar will become a corrupt leader. In these lines, Brutus tells us that if Caesar is crowned king, he will be given the power to do whatever he pleases with this privilege. This liberty might lead to danger. This is why Brutus agrees to participate in the assassination, even as he states that he has nothing against Caesar and that he has shown no intention to become a tyrant.
