    Which format is correct?

    • A.

      9:00 A.M.

    • B.

      9:00a.m.

    • C.

      9:00 a.m.

    • D.

      Either B or C

    Correct Answer
    C. 9:00 a.m.
    Explanation
    The correct format is "9:00 a.m." because it follows the standard convention of using a space between the time and the "a.m." abbreviation. Options A and B are incorrect because they do not have a space between the time and the "a.m." abbreviation. Option C is also incorrect because it does not capitalize the "a" in "a.m." Therefore, the correct format is option D, "9:00 a.m."

    • A.

      Expresses an opinion

    • B.

      Tells a narrative

    • C.

      Explains a topic

    • D.

      Makes an argument

    Correct Answer
    A. Expresses an opinion
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "expresses an opinion". An op-ed is a type of article that is typically published in a newspaper or magazine and is written by someone who is not a staff member of the publication. It allows individuals to express their personal opinions on a particular topic or issue. Unlike news articles, which are meant to provide objective information, op-eds are subjective in nature and often aim to persuade or influence readers with the author's viewpoint.

      To start an idea

    • C.

      After

    • D.

      Before

    Correct Answer
    D. Before
    Explanation
    A comma should go before FANBOYS (For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So) when it is used to connect two independent clauses. This is known as a coordinating conjunction, and the comma is used to separate the two clauses and indicate a pause in the sentence.

    Correct Answer
    C. Explains a topic
    Explanation
    An expository essay is a type of essay that focuses on explaining a specific topic. Unlike an essay that expresses an opinion, tells a narrative, or makes an argument, an expository essay is primarily concerned with providing information and explaining a particular subject matter in a clear and concise manner. It aims to educate the reader about a specific topic by presenting facts, evidence, and logical explanations.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is letters. The epistolary genre refers to a literary genre that is composed of letters or other forms of written correspondence. It is a form of storytelling where the narrative is presented through a series of letters exchanged between characters. This genre allows for a unique and intimate perspective into the characters' thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Maps and recipes, although they can be included in a story, do not define the epistolary genre.

    • A.

      Aristotle

    • B.

      Socrates

    • C.

      Plato

    • D.

      Shakespeare

    Correct Answer
    A. Aristotle
    Explanation
    Aristotle is the correct answer because he was a Greek philosopher who wrote extensively on various subjects, including rhetoric. His work "The Art of Rhetoric" is considered one of the most influential texts on the subject, outlining principles and techniques for effective persuasion and communication. Socrates and Plato were also Greek philosophers, but they did not specifically write "The Art of Rhetoric." Shakespeare, on the other hand, was an English playwright and poet, not a philosopher, and did not write any works on rhetoric.

    • C.

      An appeal to logic

    • D.

      An appeal to emotions

    Correct Answer
    D. An appeal to emotions
    Explanation
    Pathos is best defined as an appeal to emotions. This means that when using pathos, the speaker or writer tries to evoke certain emotions in the audience in order to persuade them or create a connection. Pathos can be used through storytelling, vivid language, or imagery, all aimed at eliciting emotional responses from the audience. It is a powerful tool often used in advertising, speeches, or persuasive writing to create empathy, sympathy, or compassion in the audience.

    • A.

      Figurative

    • B.

      Linear

    • C.

      Usually cyclical

    • D.

      Possibly a map or recipe

    Correct Answer
    D. Possibly a map or recipe
    Explanation
    The given answer suggests that the alternative narrative could be a map or a recipe. This is because the previous statements describe the narrative as figurative, linear, and usually cyclical. A map or a recipe can fit these descriptions as they can be seen as figurative representations of a process or a journey, and they often have a linear or cyclical structure. Therefore, the answer "possibly a map or recipe" is a reasonable explanation based on the information provided.

    • B.

      Quoting sources

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    D. Irrelevant opinion
    Explanation
    In an argumentative essay, all of the options provided can help support the writer's position except for an irrelevant opinion. While weighing a counter opinion can help strengthen the argument by addressing potential counterarguments, quoting sources and statistics provide evidence and credibility to the writer's position. However, an irrelevant opinion does not contribute to the logical reasoning or evidence-based support of the writer's position.

    Correct Answer

    • C.

      Accept, accept

    • D.

      Accept, except

    Correct Answer
    D. Accept, except
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "accept, except". In this sentence, "accept" means to receive or agree to something, while "except" means to exclude or make an exception. The sentence is stating that late work will not be allowed, except in the case of death in the immediate family.

    • A.

      Its

    • B.

      its’

    • C.

      It’s

    • D.

      Neither a, b, nor c

    Correct Answer
    C. It’s
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "it's". In this sentence, "it's" is a contraction of "it is". The phrase "getting late" suggests that time is passing, so the contraction "it's" is used to indicate that time is running out or that there is a sense of urgency. "Its" is a possessive pronoun, used to show ownership, and "its'" is not a correct form. Therefore, the correct answer is "it's".

    • C.

      Break, brakes

    • D.

      Breaks, breaks

    Correct Answer
    C. Break, brakes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "break, brakes". In the sentence, the word "break" is used as a noun to refer to a pause or interruption in one's lunchtime, indicating that the person took their car to the shop during their lunch break. On the other hand, "brakes" is used as a noun to refer to the car part that needed fixing.

      Either a or b

    • D.

      Neither a nor b

    Correct Answer
    B. Chose
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "chose". In the given sentence, the verb "chose" is used to indicate that Tim made a decision in the past to play ball instead of doing his homework. "Chose" is the past tense form of the verb "choose", which is the appropriate form to use in this context.

    • A.

    • B.

      Effects

    • C.

      Either a or b

    • D.

      Neither a nor b

    Correct Answer
    B. Effects
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "effects" because the sentence is referring to the special visual or audio elements in the movie, which are typically referred to as special effects. "Affects" is a verb that means to have an impact on something, while "effects" is a noun that refers to the result or outcome of something. In this context, it makes more sense to use "effects" to describe the cool elements in the movie.

    • A.

      Define something as true or false

    • B.

    • C.

      Either a or b

    • D.

      Neither a nor b

    Correct Answer
    A. Define something as true or false
    Explanation
    Constatives are sentences that define something as true or false. This means that they make statements about the world that can be evaluated as either true or false. They are different from performatives, which are sentences that perform an action or have a performative function. The answer "define something as true or false" accurately describes the nature of constatives and distinguishes them from other types of sentences.

    • C.

      Constative

    • D.

      Either a or c

    Correct Answer
    B. Performative
    Explanation
    A sign that reads "The Park Closes at 6 p.m." is an example of a performative statement because it is not just describing a state of affairs (constative), but it is also performing an action by conveying information and instructing people to adhere to the stated closing time. It is not a speech part because it is a complete statement with a clear meaning.

    • D.

      To inspire action

    Correct Answer
    D. To inspire action
    Explanation
    Performatives are sentences that are meant to inspire action. Unlike other types of sentences that describe or convey information, performatives are used to perform an action or bring about a specific outcome. For example, saying "I promise to be there" is not just a statement of intention but also an action of making a promise. Therefore, performatives are designed to elicit a response or bring about a change in behavior or situation.

    A. Words are actions
    Explanation
    Speech acts occur when words are used to perform actions. This means that by uttering certain words, individuals can perform actions such as making promises, giving commands, expressing gratitude, or apologizing. In speech acts, the words themselves have the power to bring about a change in the world or in the relationship between people.

      Ordering

    • D.

      Promising

    Correct Answer
    A. Laughing
    Explanation
    Laughing is not considered a speech act because it does not involve the use of language to perform a specific communicative function. Speech acts typically involve the intentional use of language to perform actions such as making statements, giving commands, asking questions, or making promises. Laughing, on the other hand, is a non-verbal action that can convey emotions or reactions, but it does not involve the use of language to perform a specific communicative function.

    Forensic or judicial rhetoric aims to establish the truth by presenting factual evidence. It focuses on presenting verifiable information and logical arguments rather than relying solely on narratives, stories, or stages. By emphasizing facts, forensic rhetoric aims to persuade the audience based on objective evidence and logical reasoning, making it a reliable and credible form of argumentation in legal settings.

    Correct Answer
    B. Proclamation
    Explanation
    Epideictic rhetoric, also known as demonstrative rhetoric, is a form of communication that is primarily used to praise or blame someone or something. It is often used to make a proclamation, which is a public or official announcement. In this context, a proclamation would be the most fitting choice as it aligns with the purpose of epideictic rhetoric to make a public declaration or announcement. A counterpoint, speech, or narrative may not necessarily be focused on making a proclamation.
