    B. William Shakespeare was an actor and a playwright.
    C. Queen Elizabeth I was in power when William Shakespeare was alive.

    During the Elizabethan era, women were not allowed to perform on stage, so all female roles were played by men.

William Shakespeare himself was both an actor and a playwright, known for his performances as well as his written works. Queen Elizabeth I was the reigning monarch during Shakespeare's lifetime, making the statement that she was in power when he was alive true.

     __________________ is a synonym for cumbersome.

    • A.

      Clumsy

    • B.

      Careful

    • C.

      Crazy

    • D.

      Small

    Correct Answer

    The word "clumsy" is a synonym for "cumbersome" because both words describe something that is awkward, unwieldy, or difficult to handle or manage. When something is described as clumsy, it implies that it lacks grace or coordination, making it difficult to maneuver or use effectively. Similarly, when something is described as cumbersome, it suggests that it is bulky, heavy, or awkward to carry or manipulate. Therefore, "clumsy" is the correct answer as it best captures the meaning of "cumbersome."

Atticus Finch is portrayed as a moral and principled character who upholds justice and equality.

    The irony in these statements is that initially, Scout and her friends are afraid of Boo Radley and view him as a terrifying figure, while they perceive Mrs. Dubose as a mysterious and unknown entity. However, as the story progresses, Scout develops a deep respect for both Boo and Mrs. Dubose. Despite their initial fears and misconceptions, Scout comes to understand the true nature of these characters and learns valuable lessons from them.

    Correct Answer
    D. His hostility drives the feud between the Montagues and Capulets deeper, thus making it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to publicize their love and causing the two to take extreme measures to be together
    Explanation
    Tybalt's hostility towards the Montagues and his involvement in the ongoing feud between the two families contribute to Juliet's death. The deepening of the feud makes it challenging for Romeo and Juliet to openly express their love and be together. This leads to them taking extreme measures, such as secretly getting married and ultimately leads to their tragic end.

    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that in the relationship between Lord Capulet and Lord Montague in Romeo and Juliet, and the relationship between Atticus and Bob Ewell in To Kill a Mockingbird, they do not dislike each other in the beginning and become friends at the end. In Romeo and Juliet, the feuding between the Capulets and Montagues leads to tragedy, and in To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus and Bob Ewell have a hostile relationship throughout the story. Therefore, the statement "They dislike each other in the beginning, but become friends at the end" is not a similarity between the two relationships.

In Chinese we say, Come from South, blow with wind - poom! - North will follow. Strongest wind cannot be seen." The next week I bit back my tongue as we entered the store with the forbidden candies.

    Correct Answer
    C. These words are unnecessary because the reader knows who wrote the paper.
    Explanation
    In expository essays, writers should avoid using words like "I," "me," or "my" because these words shift the focus from the topic to the writer's personal experiences or opinions. Expository essays are meant to provide objective information and analysis, so using these words can make the writing subjective and biased. Instead, writers should focus on presenting facts, evidence, and logical arguments to support their claims, allowing the reader to form their own opinions based on the information provided.
