    There is no highlighting and no question shows up on the quiz... just the text and the answer choices. Just the same, every question that asks the test-taker to identify a point on "this plot diagram" fails to show a plot diagram. Very frustrating. Is there something I am doing wrong?

    When is the best time to begin literature review associated with a specific research project (and why)?

  • Where did all the proceeds from the book Peter Pan go?
    Where did all the proceeds from the book Peter Pan go?
    The answer to the question “Where did all the proceeds from the book Peter Pan go?” is letter C or Hospital. James Matthew Barrie or most commonly known as J.M. Barrie was born on May 09, 1860 in Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland, and he was famous for creating the fictional character Peter Pan. He died on June 19, 1937 in London, England, but before he died, he bequeathed all the rights to Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London. This meant that the hospital held the copyright for the book and everything related to Peter Pan. However, it is also worthy to note that the copyright of the book expired in 2008 which only meant that Peter Pan and Neverland became a public domain.

    What does Sam I Am eat with his Green Eggs in the famous Dr. Seuss book?

  • What happens to Jane at the end of the novel?
    What happens to Jane at the end of the novel?
    At the end of the book “Jane Eyre”, Jane has married Edward Rochester. Actually, by this point in the book, they have been “blissfully married” for ten years. Charlotte Bronte writes that Mr. Rochester had been blind for two years prior to this point, but had regained some of his sight. Because of this, it gives us the knowledge that he was able to see his firstborn child. However, there is a larger theme here. Most literature from this time, when written by a female, ends with the heroine marrying. Most of the time, it is because they fell in love, but there were some disastrous marriages along the way, too; think Lydia and Mr. Wickham in Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”.
