#4- In 1775, George Washington was given command of a non-existant army to fight the foremost military power of the day over issues deeply dividing his country little wonder that he confided at the time that "from the date I enter upon the command of the American army, I date my fall and the ruin of my reputation."

#5- Characters in fantasies written for children differ significantly from one historical period to another. Each fantasy in some way holds up a mirror to the culture in which it is produced. When we examine literary fantasy; we look upon a reflection of the social pressures of the period problems of sex role and personal identity and the changing role of the artist. What all of these changing patterns mean is the subject of an interesting sociological study.

Which of the following statement would most clearly be supported by the passage.

.Twntieth-century artist are free-spirited and therefore are not likely to write fantansies (I chose this, randomly Emotion: sad )

The term commanded some attention during the so-called "zoot suit riots" in Los Angeles in the early forties, the word was revived about 1965 at the beginning of the Delano Strike, and it's increasing popularity among chicanos themselves is an important part of their civil rights movement and philosophy.

The passage is primarily concerned with

.Giving a history of the term "Chicano" (I chose this)

.Explaining how the term "Chicano" came about.

.Telling who used the term "Chicano"

.Revealing hidden meanings in the term "Chicano"

Sorry, I found a mistake I made.

I date my fall - I count the days I have left or foresee my death.
Thank you guys!! Some of these questions were tricky.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
There's a lot more! I am sorry. I am going to post at least 3-4 questions a day. I have a total of 20 questions that I need help with. Here's the 4 questions:

“Sesame Street” is the most thoroughly researched television program in history. It was studied before it went on the air and has been analyzed since. Its success in achieving its basic goal, improving the reading arithmetic, and other basic skills of young children, has been well-documented. There is also some evidence that children imitate the human behavior they observe on the program. These harmless, often amusing imitative acts may justify the current concern about the effects on children of televised violence.

According to the passage, children watching “Sesame Street” tend to

.Imitate the violent behavior they see on television (I chose this)

.Learn only scholastic skills well

.Teach younger children what they themselves have l earned

.Copy what they see the performers do.

One of the rights a citizen of the United States is supposed to have is the right to a fair and speedy trial. Unfortunately, as people who are charged with crimes quickly find out, trials often occur weeks or months after the arrest. People accused of crimes must sometimes spend the time waiting for the trial in jail. Trials cannot take place quickly because court calendars are overly crowded, probably because there are not enough judges. Clearly, something must be done to reform the judicial system so that a fundamental right is guaranteed.

The main ideas of the paragraph is that

. Criminals are often detained for unnecessarily long periods

.courts is overcrowded and judges are overworked.

.a basic right of United States citizens is being violated

.The judicial system is being reformed. (I chose this one)

The light dazzled me as my sight returned.

I saw a blur; it gradually turned into a face.

The eyes appeared and the nose took shape.

The objects in the sentences are organized according to

.When they are seen

.how far away they are (I chose this)

.what shape they are

.how bright they are

At a distance of ten feet, the eyewitness mistook a vase of flowers for a woman wearing a fancy hat.

Subsequently, the testimony of the eyewitness was disregarded by the jury.

.The first setence contradicts the second sentence

.The first sentence presents an event and the second setence its consequences (I chose this)

.The second sentence illustrates the point made by the first sentence.

.Both setences describe events which occurred at the same time.
xHealthY,

I wonder if you have realized that your post resembled a lot more like a chapter from your grammar book than a post with just a couple of questions. It is quite overwhelming. Comprehension really comes from your own understanding of English. The forum can only point you to the right direction a few times and the rest is on you.
Yeah, but I really need correction at least. I really need help with this as it is important. I am trying to get a high score on the CPT to get into nursing. I can't get that score.. some of these questions are on the CPT. I do usually understand these questions, but the answers are tricky. I love to read, but I am not good answering questions at all.
