    Review Paul Robert's How to say Nothing in 500 Words then answer the following question. Which of the following is NOT a definitive tip for effective writing?

    • A. 

      Avoid the obvious content

    • B. 

      Get rid of obvious padding

    • C. 

      Take the popular side

    • D. 

      Call a fool a fool

    Correct Answer
    C. Take the popular side
    Explanation
    Taking the popular side is not a definitive tip for effective writing because it can lead to writing that lacks originality and critical thinking. Effective writing involves presenting well-reasoned arguments and considering multiple perspectives, rather than simply conforming to popular opinion.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    True or false: Pre-writing is the first step in the writing process.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Pre-writing is indeed the first step in the writing process. It involves brainstorming ideas, organizing thoughts, and planning the structure of the writing piece before actually starting to write. During this phase, writers may use techniques such as freewriting, mind mapping, or outlining to generate and organize their ideas. This initial preparation helps writers clarify their thoughts, establish a clear focus, and create a solid foundation for their writing. Therefore, the statement "Pre-writing is the first step in the writing process" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 1 pp.4-23 then answer the following question. Which choice below is a distinction of open form writing?

    • A. 

      Unified and coherent paragraphs

    • B. 

      Reader is held in suspense

    • C. 

      No single summarizable thesis

    • D. 

      Sustained development of that thesis without digressions

    Correct Answer
    C. No single summarizable thesis
    Explanation
    Open form writing is characterized by the absence of a single summarizable thesis. Unlike closed form writing, which follows a specific structure and presents a clear thesis statement, open form writing allows for more freedom and exploration. It does not have a central argument or main idea that can be easily summarized. Instead, open form writing often focuses on multiple perspectives, ideas, and interpretations, creating a more dynamic and complex piece of writing.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 1 pp. 4-23 and then answer the following question. Which of the following is NOT a question you should ask yourself when you analyze your audience?

    • A. 

      What are my readers' motives for reading?

    • B. 

      Do my readers have more or less expertise than I have, or about the same expertise?

    • C. 

      What are the readers' attitudes toward my thesis?

    • D. 

      Is my thesis important to not only my reader but me?

    Correct Answer
    D. Is my thesis important to not only my reader but me?
    Explanation
    The question "Is my thesis important to not only my reader but me?" is not a question you should ask yourself when you analyze your audience. When analyzing your audience, it is important to consider their motives for reading, their level of expertise compared to yours, and their attitudes toward your thesis. However, your personal attachment to your thesis is not a relevant factor in audience analysis. The focus should be on understanding the needs, interests, and perspectives of your readers.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 2 pp. 24-45 then answer the following questions. True or False: When you "wallow in complexity" you look to answer the thesis in more than one way.

    • A. 

      False

    • B. 

      True

    Correct Answer
    B. True
    Explanation
    When you "wallow in complexity," it means that you are exploring and delving into the intricacies and multiple aspects of a particular topic or issue. This implies that you are not limiting yourself to a single perspective or approach, but rather considering various viewpoints and possibilities in order to gain a comprehensive understanding. Therefore, the statement "When you 'wallow in complexity,' you look to answer the thesis in more than one way" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6.

    • A. 

      Your question narrows in on a topic

    • B. 

      Your question has a divided purpose or multiple parts

    • C. 

      Your question allows room for lots of research

    • D. 

      Your question focuses on a single clear issue

    Correct Answer
    B. Your question has a divided purpose or multiple parts
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Your question has a divided purpose or multiple parts." This is one of the six pitfalls of writing a good research question because a research question should be focused and concise. When a question has a divided purpose or multiple parts, it can lead to confusion and make it difficult to gather clear and specific data. It is important for a research question to have a single clear issue that can be effectively addressed and analyzed.

      Four to Six sentences long and critically evaluate the work

    Correct Answer
    D. Four to Six sentences long and critically evaluate the work
    Explanation
    When creating an annotated bibliography, the annotations should be four to six sentences long and critically evaluate the work. This means that the annotations should provide a concise summary of the source, highlight its relevance to the research topic, and critically analyze the credibility, strengths, and weaknesses of the source. By critically evaluating the work, the annotations demonstrate a deeper understanding and engagement with the source material, allowing readers to assess its reliability and usefulness for their own research purposes.

These databases contain a wide range of scholarly articles and resources from various disciplines, making them ideal for conducting research on general subjects. They provide a comprehensive collection of information that covers multiple topics, allowing users to explore different areas of interest without being limited to a specific field or subject.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

By presenting relevant background information, the writer can establish the foundation for the exploration and prepare the reader for what is to come in the rest of the paper.

    Rate this question:

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 6 pp. 128-170 then answer the following question. True or False: The key to effective exploratory writing is to create tension between alternative views.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Exploratory writing is a form of writing where the writer delves into a topic or issue without a predetermined stance or conclusion. The purpose of exploratory writing is to explore different perspectives and ideas, and to generate new insights and understanding. Creating tension between alternative views is an effective strategy in exploratory writing because it encourages critical thinking and analysis. By presenting contrasting viewpoints, the writer can examine the strengths and weaknesses of each perspective, leading to a more comprehensive exploration of the topic. Therefore, the statement that the key to effective exploratory writing is to create tension between alternative views is true.

    Rate this question:

      Write a first draft of your introduction

    • D. 

      Reproduce the research and thinking process

    Correct Answer
    A. Choosing a question, problem, or issue that truly perplexes you
    Explanation
    The first step in writing an exploratory paper is choosing a question, problem, or issue that truly perplexes you. This is important because it sets the foundation for the entire paper. By selecting a topic that genuinely interests and confuses you, you are more likely to be motivated to explore it further and conduct thorough research. This step ensures that the paper will be engaging and meaningful to both the writer and the reader. It also allows for a genuine exploration of the topic, as the writer will be driven by curiosity and a desire to understand the perplexing issue.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 6 pp. 128-170 to help you answer the following question. Which of the following elements should NOT be included in the body paragraph of an exploratory paper?

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Shows why you are interested in the source
    Explanation
    The body paragraph of an exploratory paper should not include an explanation of why the writer is interested in the source. This is because an exploratory paper focuses on objectively examining different perspectives and sources, rather than expressing personal opinions or biases. The body paragraph should instead focus on offering a strong response to the source, discussing what it contributes to the understanding of the question, and providing rhetorical context and information about the source.

  • 21. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 7 pp. 152-170 and then answer the following question. What is the surprising reversal pattern?

    • A. 

      Pushing your viewpoint in everyone's face

    • B. 

      Hooks the reader on your beliefs

    • C. 

      Showing how your viewpoint is the only viewpoint on the topic

    • D. 

      Showing people who hold a differing view that your view is/also correct

    Correct Answer
    D. Showing people who hold a differing view that your view is/also correct
    Explanation
    The surprising reversal pattern is when you present people who hold a differing view with evidence or arguments that support your own viewpoint, ultimately convincing them that your perspective is also correct. This pattern is surprising because it challenges the expectation that you would only focus on promoting your own beliefs and disregarding opposing viewpoints. By acknowledging and addressing differing opinions, the author can build credibility and engage readers who may initially hold a different stance.

      Explains your viewpoint on the topic

    Explanation
    The introduction of an informative and surprising essay should include background and context on the topic to provide the necessary information for the reader to understand the subject matter. This helps set the stage for the essay and gives the reader a foundation to build upon when reading the rest of the essay. Including background and context helps to establish the relevance and importance of the topic, making it more engaging for the reader.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 7 pp. 152-170 and then answer the following question. True or False: An informative and surprising paper does not require a thesis but simply sources that support your viewpoint.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    An informative and surprising paper does require a thesis. A thesis is a clear and concise statement that presents the main argument or point of the paper. It helps guide the reader and provides a focus for the research and evidence presented. Without a thesis, the paper may lack direction and coherence, making it difficult for the reader to understand the purpose and message of the paper. Additionally, sources alone cannot fully support a viewpoint without a thesis to tie them together and provide context.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 7 pp. 152-170 and then answer the following question. In order to create the surprising reversal feel to your paper you should?

    • A. 

      Engage the reader in your question

    • B. 

      Explain the significance of your answer to the question

    • C. 

      Go into great detail about the common viewpoint

    • D. 

      Delay your thesis until after you have explained your audience's common viewpoint

    Correct Answer
    D. Delay your thesis until after you have explained your audience's common viewpoint
    Explanation
    Delaying the thesis until after explaining the audience's common viewpoint creates a surprising reversal feel to the paper. By first presenting the common viewpoint and providing detailed information about it, the reader becomes familiar with the expected perspective. However, by delaying the thesis, the writer can then introduce a surprising and unexpected perspective, which creates a sense of surprise and reversal for the reader. This approach engages the reader in the question, explains the significance of the answer, and sets up the surprising reversal effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 7 pp. 152-170 and then answer the following question. True or False: In body section two of your informative and surprising essay you should include numeric data in graphs or tables referenced in the text.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In body section two of an informative and surprising essay, it is recommended to include numeric data in graphs or tables referenced in the text. This helps to present the information in a visual and organized manner, making it easier for the readers to understand and interpret the data. By including graphs or tables, the essay becomes more informative and engaging, as it provides visual representations of the data being discussed.

    Explanation
    A dropped quotation refers to a quotation that is properly cited but is inserted into the paper without any prior indication or warning. This means that the quotation is not introduced with a signal phrase or any other form of context. As a result, it may appear abrupt or out of place within the text. It is important to properly integrate quotations into the paper to provide clarity and ensure that they flow smoothly within the overall structure of the writing.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    Review the Integrating Sources in MLA Format video and then answer this question. True or False: Even if you mention the authors name in the signal phrase you still need to include their name in the citation following the quote.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 14 pp. 354-375 and then answer the following question. How do you do an in-text citation for a source with no author?

    • A. 

      You do not cite the source

    • B. 

      You put the article name in parenthesis after the citation

    • C. 

      You put the first word the source is alphabetized under in parenthesis after the citation

    • D. 

      You put a page number in parenthesis after the citation

    Correct Answer
    C. You put the first word the source is alphabetized under in parenthesis after the citation
    Explanation
    When citing a source with no author, the in-text citation should include the first word of the source's title, which is alphabetized in the reference list. This helps the reader locate the full citation in the reference list.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 14 pp. 354-375 and then answer the following question. When should you include page numbers in you in-text citations?

    • A. 

      When you are citing from a print or pdf formatted source

    • B. 

      Every time you do an in-text citation

    • C. 

      When you have more than one author

    • D. 

      When you have a no named author

    Correct Answer
    A. When you are citing from a print or pdf formatted source
    Explanation
    Page numbers should be included in in-text citations when you are citing from a print or pdf formatted source. This is because page numbers help the reader locate the specific information being cited within the source. Including page numbers is not necessary every time you do an in-text citation, but it is important when citing from a print or pdf source. The presence of multiple authors or a lack of named author does not determine whether page numbers should be included in the citation.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 13 pp. 334-353 and then answer the following question. When evaluating a source you should look for?

    • A. 

      Only the sources credibility

    • B. 

      How the piece of writing is laid out

    • C. 

      A mentioned author

    • D. 

      Reliability, credibility, angle of vision, and degree of advocacy

    Correct Answer
    D. Reliability, credibility, angle of vision, and degree of advocacy
    Explanation
    When evaluating a source, it is important to consider more than just the credibility of the source. Reliability is crucial to ensure that the information provided is accurate and trustworthy. Credibility refers to the expertise and reputation of the author or the source itself. Angle of vision refers to the perspective or bias from which the information is presented, allowing the reader to understand any potential biases or limitations. Degree of advocacy refers to the extent to which the source promotes a particular viewpoint or agenda. Considering all these factors helps to assess the overall quality and potential biases of the source.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    Review Allyn & Bacon Chapter 13 pp. 334-353 and then answer the following question. True or False: Credibility is similar to reliability  but credibility refers to trust in the writer's honesty.

    • A. 

      False

    • B. 

      True

    Correct Answer
    B. True
    Explanation
    Credibility is similar to reliability, but credibility refers to trust in the writer's honesty. This means that when a writer is credible, readers believe that the writer is being honest and trustworthy in their writing. Reliability, on the other hand, refers to the consistency and accuracy of the information provided by the writer. While both credibility and reliability are important in writing, credibility specifically focuses on the trustworthiness of the writer. Therefore, the statement is true.
