Answer:

The answer you selected results in what is called a "Comma Splice": a comma is used incorrectly to separate two sentences. One of the choices should have offered the solution with a semi-colon after company, and then a comma after however.

Question:

How should I interpret tone in the context of this question? Jean Wagner’s most enduring contribution to the study of Afro-American poetry is his insistence that it be analyzed in a religious, as well as secular, frame of reference. **The appropriateness of such an approach may seem self-evident for a tradition commencing with spirituals and owing its early forms, rhythms, vocabulary, and evangelical fervor to Wesleyan hymnals.** But before Wagner a secular outlook that analyzed Black poetry solely within the context of political and social protest was dominant in the field.> It is Wagner who first demonstrated the essential fusion of racial and religious feeling in Afro-American poetry. The two, he argued, form a symbiotic union in which religious feelings are often applied to racial issues and racial problems are often projected onto a metaphysical plane. Wagner found this most eloquently illustrated in the Black spiritual, where the desire for freedom in this world and the hope for salvation in the next are inextricably intertwined. All of the following aspects of Afro-American poetry are referred to in the passage as having been influenced by Wesleyan hymnals EXCEPT: (A) subject matter (B) word choice (C) rhythm (D) structure (E) tone

Answer:

"Tone" is the attitude/approach that the author has towards the subject matter and/or the audience.It can be expressed by the choice of words and/or the position (pro or con) that the author has towards the matter/audience.

Answer:

Quiz yourself intermittantly on study material to improve your long-term recall for testing. Distribute your practice; that is, review newly-learned material often, starting as soon as possible after the new material is first encountered, spacing several review sessions between the initial study session(s) and the lastreview sessions before an exam. Frequent effective reviewing not only helps to reinforce your recall of important concepts, but also highlights areas where your comprehension and recall may be faulty. The sooner you identify areas of uncertainty and confusion, the better. You can take action early to eliminate your problems so as to avoid last-minute panic while cramming for a test.
