If the author wanted to change this portion, which is the BEST way to combine these sentences? "Had everything but the panting. And the drool. Too much caffeine I suppose. Too happy." A) He had caffeine and happiness but no panting or drool. B) He had everything: panting, drool, caffeine and was happy. C) He had drooling but no panting. He had caffeine and happiness. D) He had everything but the panting and the drool; he also seemed overly happy, perhaps from too much caffeine.

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

The answer is option D: He had everything but the panting and the drool; he also seemed overly happy, perhaps from too much caffeine.

The excerpt from "A Baker's Dozen," by David Matherne, indicates that the person has no panting or drool, but has had a lot of caffeine and has a feeling of happiness. Option A mentions the same things in a simple sentence, but alternative D is expressed in a more improved way - with two independent clauses separated by a semicolon.

Option B is incorrect because it claims that the person has everything, and option C states that he or she has drooling, which is not true.

Answer 2
Answer:

D) He had everything but the panting and the drool; he also seemed overly happy, perhaps from too much caffeine.

C.When a high- and a low-pressure air mass are far apart, air moves slowly from high to low pressure.

D.When a high- and a low-pressure air mass are far apart, air moves quickly from high to low pressure.

Answers

"When a high- and a low-pressure air mass are far apart, air moves quickly from low to high pressure".

"When a high- and a low-pressure air mass are far apart, air moves slowly from high to low pressure".

Above statements best describes the relationship between changes in air pressure and wind speeds.

Answer: Option A and C

Explanation:

Cooler air often comes in to replace it when hot air rises, and wind often travels from places where it is cooler to areas where it is hotter.The greater the difference between high and low pressure, or the shorter the distance between high and low pressure areas, the higher the wind burst.

Pressure gradient outlines the gap in air pressure among two points in the environment or on the Earth's surface. Wind speed is important as greater the difference in level, faster the wind moves to balance out the variability from the high to low pressure.

Answer:When a high- and a low-pressure air mass are far apart,  air moves slowly from high to low pressure.

One of the worst cases was a young mother of two who was diagnosed with early stage skin cancer. It uses a specific example as evidence. It appeals to the reader’s sense of logic. It shows the writer’s credibility. It reveals important statistics.

Answers

Mentioning the case of the young mother means the author uses a specific example as evidence. (option A)

What is evidence?

Evidence is anything the proves an idea to be right or that supports an opinion. Here, the evidence used by the author consists of a specific example about a young mother who was diagnosed with skin cancer.

This example does not contain statistics, logic, nor does it show the writer's credibility. Its purpose is to support the author's opinion that a universal health care system is necessary.

With the information above in mind, we can choose option A as the correct answer.

The correct answer is "It uses a specific example as evidence".

Literary evidence is all information used to support a specific statement. In the line given, we don't know exactly what assertion it is supporting. However, we can deduce from the introducing phrase "One of the worst case" that it is presenting a testimonial example to strengthen a bigger theme, using it as evidence. This makes the first option more fitting than the rest.


Hope this helps!
