The day we found the sharks' teeth was foggy and cool. Moisture hung in the air so thick you could almost see it sparkling in the dim sunlight. There were days, early in the summer like this one, where it seemed there was more water in the air than in the bay. We had beached the boat and stepped out on the recently cleared spit of land. The ground had a light dusting of white sand over an under layer of dried black mud. It looked like a recently frosted chocolate cake, though the frosting was spread a bit thin for my taste. The ground was solid, but we knew from experience that it was full of fiddler crab holes, and would be underwater at the first super-high tide. Mysteriously, to us anyway, someone wanted to build a house there. We often came to these spots to look for artifacts. Our beach, our summer home, had been a fishing camp for as long as anyone living could remember. The oldest stories told of travelers coming down to the edge of the sea, lining up to fill their wagon beds with salted fish to take back home. Old decaying cabins still lined the beach. Rotting nets, hung out to dry in the last century, decorated their weathered walls. Their broken faces spun stories in our minds. The fishermen who, tanned and wrinkled from sun and salt, hauled their nets full of splashing mullet in to cheers from the waiting crowds. The bounty of the sea lightened everyone's hearts, and the smell of roasting fish filled the damp air. Women fanned themselves from wagon seats. Children splashed in the shallow edges of the bay. It was a scene we had acted out as youngsters, building an imaginary bridge to a life we would never fully know.

C. To help the reader understand the quality of the writing and the author's level of education
D. To help the reader understand the underlying values and beliefs of the characters

(The answer is D)

Answers

The answer is D.

Culture refers to a particular ‘way of life’ (experience), involving religion, race and nationality, as well as things like food, dress code and manners. Literature has been defined as "the human experience."  It is the outpourings of the artist's heart and soul.  To know about the personal background of this artist, therefore, only makes sense. For example Ernest Hemingway in "A Farewell to Arms" , his experience are in the background of this novel.

D. To help the reader understand the underlying values and beliefs of the characters is the correct answer, but it seems that you already knew that : )

Which two excerpts from Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis show how Gregor’s sister, Grete, transformed in the story?

Answers

The first time Grete, Gregor's sister, appears in the story, we don't see her. Like the other family members, she's just a voice behind a wall, trying to get Gregor to open up his bedroom door. Unlike her parents, Grete begins to moan and weep as Gregor refuses to open his door.

As the story goes on, Grete grows from a whimpering doormat to an assertive young woman. She's no longer Gregor's flighty little sister who needs to be protected from the big, bad world—or the big, bad bug. She's the only one in the family who can face Gregor in his new body, the only one who seems to be able to read his needs and respond to them:

[His sister] came in on tiptoe, as if she were visiting someone seriously ill or perhaps even a stranger. (2.7)

Her new responsibilities increase her stature in the eyes of her parents... and herself, for that matter. The story suggests that all of her care may not be the most well-intentioned, but an outgrowth of the enthusiasm of a young girl who gets to star in her own fairytale:

Perhaps, however, the romantic enthusiasm of girls her age, which seeks to indulge itself at every opportunity, played a part, by tempting her to make Gregor's situation even more terrifying in order that she might do even more for him. (2.22)

And when things get rough—she has to work as a shopgirl by day, study at night—the fairytale is over. Gregor is no longer the Beast to her Beauty,but a tedious chore. When he ruins her violin concert, it's the last straw. She refuses to call him her brother, and insists that he has to be disposed of just like any old household pest.

Answer: Edmentum- Which two excerpts from Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis show how Gregor’s sister, Grete, transformed in the story?

"It's got to go," shouted his sister, "that's the only way, Father. You've got to get rid of the idea that that's Gregor. We've only harmed ourselves by believing it for so long. How can that be Gregor? If it were Gregor he would have seen long ago that it's not possible for human beings to live with an animal like that and he would have gone of his own free will. We wouldn't have a brother any more, then, but we could carry on with our lives and remember him with respect. As it is this animal is persecuting us, it's driven out our tenants, it obviously wants to take over the whole flat and force us to sleep on the streets. Father, look, just look," she suddenly screamed, "he's starting again!"

Mr. and Mrs. Samsa sat upright there in their marriage bed and had to make an effort to get over the shock caused by the cleaner before they could grasp what she was saying. But then, each from his own side, they hurried out of bed. Mr. Samsa threw the blanket over his shoulders, Mrs. Samsa just came out in her nightdress; and that is how they went into Gregor's room. On the way they opened the door to the living room where Grete had been sleeping since the three gentlemen had moved in; she was fully dressed as if she had never been asleep, and the paleness of her face seemed to confirm this.

"Leave my home. Now!" said Mr. Samsa, indicating the door and without letting the women from him. "What do you mean?" asked the middle of the three gentlemen somewhat disconcerted, and he smiled sweetly. The other two held their hands behind their backs and continually rubbed them together in gleeful anticipation of a loud quarrel which could only end in their favour. "I mean just what I said," answered Mr. Samsa, and, with his two companions, went in a straight line towards the man.

The greatest improvement for the time being, of course, would be achieved quite easily by moving house; what they needed now was a flat that was smaller and cheaper than the current one which had been chosen by Gregor, one that was in a better location and, most of all, more practical. All the time, Grete was becoming livelier. With all the worry they had been having of late her cheeks had become pale, but, while they were talking, Mr. and Mrs. Samsa were struck, almost simultaneously, with the thought of how their daughter was blossoming into a well built and beautiful young lady.

1. Which of the following topics is too broad for a 10-minute speech?
A.
classes offered in interior design
B.
interior design tips for the college dorm
C.
the history of modern interior design
D.
preparing for a career in interior design

Answers

Answer:is C

Explanation:

I am not too sure there is a clear answer to this question: in principle, you could hold a speech of 10 minutes on any topic, but the depth of the treatment of the topic would have to be adjusted.

I would choose answer C. the history of modern interior design: describing a history of anything requires a lot of details, and those need time.


Specifically, I find that options A and B are very easily condensed for 10 minutes: they are in any case not good options.

D. depends on whether this is just a general introduction or a very detailed, practically oriented, tutorial.
