Let's have no more argument. I have chosen Mr. Baggins and that ought to be enough for all of you. If I say he is a Burglar, a Burglar he is, or will be when the time comes. There is a lot more in him than you guess, and a deal more than he has any idea of himself. You may (possibly) all live to thank me yet." Which best describes how Gandalf's point of view differs from Thorin's? Gandalf believes that Bilbo has a hidden strength within him that will prove vital to the dwarves' quest, while Thorin believes that Bilbo will be useless and a burden.


Gandalf knows that Bilbo isn't much of a burglar but knows how important this quest will be for Bilbo. Thorin knows Gandalf's intentions and isn't happy about them.


Gandalf and Thorin both believe that Bilbo will be an important addition to the quest.


Gandalf believes that Bilbo is a master burglar, while Thorin is doubtful of Bilbo's skills but willing to give Bilbo a chance

Answers

Answer:

Gandalf believes that Bilbo has a hidden strength within him that will prove vital to the dwarves' quest, while Thorin believes that Bilbo will be useless and a burden.

Explanation:

"The Hobbit" by J R R Tolkien is a fantasy story about the journey of a group of dwarves along with a hobbit and a wizard, on a quest to overcome the evil that has overtaken their land.

When Bilbo Baggins was selected by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, the leader and heir to the dwarves' kingdom, Thorin of Oakenshield at first questioned the involvement of Bilbo. He doesn't seem like a fighter or even a strong one, let alone a burglar. But Gandalf insisted on his choice to include Bilbo, saying that he had a lot more in him than is visible now. The differing opinions of Gandalf and Thorin about the hobbit shows that Gandalf knows Bilbo had a hidden strength that will be seen at the right time while Thorin questions the inclusion of this weakling on a quest to defeat a dragon.

Probably A. I might want to wait for a second opinion though, but it's most likely A.


Good luck!!

Another method that might be desired is one that updates the Student’s number of credit hours. This method will receive a number of credit hours and add these to the Student’s current hours. Which of the following methods would accomplish this? a) public int updateHours( ) { return hours; } b) public void updateHours( ) { hours++; } c) public updateHours(int moreHours) { hours += moreHours; } d) public void updateHours(int moreHours) { hours += moreHours; } e) public int updateHours(int moreHours) { return hours + moreHours; } The Coin class, as defined in Chapter 4, consists of a constructor, and methods flip, isHeads and toString. The method isHeads returns true if the last flip was a Heads, and false if the last flip was a Tails. The toString method returns a String equal to "Heads" or "Tails" depending on the result of the last flip. Using this information, answer questions 4-5. 4) A set of code has already instantiated c to be a Coin and has input a String guess, from the user asking whether the user guesses that a coin flip will result in "Heads" or "Tails". Which of the following sets of code will perform the coin flip and see if the user’s guess was right or wrong? a) c.flip( ); if(c.isHeads( ).equals(guess)) System.out.println("User is correct"); b) if(c.flip( ).equals(guess)) System.out.println("User is correct"); c) if(c.isHeads( ).equals(guess)) System.out.println("User is correct"); d) c.flip( ); if(c.toString( ).equals(guess)) System.out.println("User is correct"); e) c.flip( ).toString( ); if(c.equals(guess)) System.out.println("User is correct"); 5) What does the following code compute? int num = 0; for(int j = 0; j < 1000; j++) { c.flip( ); if(c.isHeads()) num++; } double value = (double) num / 1000; a) the number of Heads flipped out of 1000 flips b) the number of Heads flipped in a row out of 1000 flips c) the percentage of heads flipped out of 1000 flips d) the percentage of times neither Heads nor Tails were flipped out of 1000 flips e) nothing at all
