When creating an inverted index for the following text: “End-of-life issues.” How would you handle the word/phrase “end-of-life,”? Explain your approach.
“End-of-life" would be listed as four separate words. "End-of-life", "end", "of", "life". If a user is specifically seeking that phrase then it needs to be kept as one word, while also listing it as separate words to identify its presence.
Thomas More is noted as being one of the first utopian authors. What are some other noteworthy authors of this genre? What exactly does utopian pertain to?

Notable works includes, Common Sense (1776) by Thomas Paine, Das Kapital (1883) by Karl Marx, Walden (1854) by Henry David Thoreau, and Looking Backward (1888) by Edward Bellamy.
Can you explain in detail what a casual hypothesis is and provide an example?
A Causal hypothesis states that there is a causal relationship between two or more variables. The hypothesis determines if a change in one variable could cause changes in another. An example of a causal hypothesis can be used on students who utilized specific library tools and if it were to change, would it affect their grades.
