Question:

Is there a difference between a bibliography, annotated bibliography, and a works cited page?

Answer:

Yes! A works cited page is a list of references you used in your writing, including details about publishing, date, and where exactly you found the quote/reference material in the work. A bibliography is similar, but it can also include other materials for further reading, or materials you may have consulted in your research but did not actually use as a source. An annotated bibliography is a bibliography with an added description for each item, including details about how it is a valuable source, why you chose to cite it, its relation to the wider body of literature, and so on.

Question:

Describe the function of food and cooking in Camilla Gibb's "Sweetness in the Belly"

Answer:

Sample answer: Food is central to the book's themes of identity, place, and home. The relationships that Lilly and Amina have to both "Eastern" and "Western" foods are indicative of their willingness to adapt to their new lives in London. Lilly resists Western foods because she is unwilling to let go of her life in Ethiopia, whereas Amina is more willing to buy and cook Western foods for herself and her daughter, as she wants them to acclimatize to their new life as soon as possible.

Question:

What is wrong with this sentence? "I don't know what is he talking about."

Answer:

When we start a question ("What is he talking about?") with a phrase like "I don't know," "Please tell me," or "I can't remember," we change the order of subject and verb in the question. The sentence should be "I don't know what he is talking about." Note the difference in the following two examples: "Who are you?" "Please tell me who you are".
