Answer:

An unreliable narrator, seen in books such as Life of Pi, is one who the reader cannot trust. The narrator will often tell the story, and then give a different version of the story at some point. These versions are often left open-ended, with no answer as to which version is the correct one.

Subject: Basic Chemistry

Answer:

Cations are positive ions (remember, cats have paws, so they are paws-itive). Cations LOSE negatively charged electrons, and thus have positive charges. Anions are negative ions. Anions GAIN negatively charged electrons, and thus have negative charges.

Question:

What is the difference between these two sentences: 1. We invited two cats, Lucy, and Irene. 2. We invited two cats, Lucy and Irene.

Answer:

The Oxford comma. In the first sentence, the use of the Oxford comma indicates that four individuals were invited: two cats, and Lucy and Irene. In the second sentence, the lack of the Oxford comma indicates that only two cats were invited, whose names were Lucy and Irene.
