Question:

Personification can be a powerful too in literature, and often plays on our understanding of humanity. Briefly explain an example of where personification forced us to question what it means to be human.

Shaheed E.
Answer:

Orwell's "Animal Farm" is a perfect example of personification for the purpose of challenging human assumptions. By creating often absurd human like beings out of the animals, he is able to criticize the very human societies that created his world. Furthermore, Orwell leaves us with this question: is corruption and fighting inevitable amongst humanity? Ultimately, he does not provide a clear answer, but his writing suggests that we are not so different than the satirical animals in his novel.

Question:

Generally speaking, as an object moves from liquid to solid, it increases in density. Explain why it is that although ice is a solid, it is still able to float above liquid water.

Shaheed E.
Answer:

As ice forms, the molecules of water distribute themselves in a way to minimize repulsion forces. This in effect creates a structure that contains more molecular spacing in between individual particles than there are present in liquid form. The overall result is that ice is less dense than its liquid form, allowing it to float.

Question:

A car is driving at 70 mph north of point A to destination point B. How long will it take the car to reach point B if point be is 560 miles away and the car stops every 2 hours to rest for an hour?

Shaheed E.
Answer:

The answer is 11 hours. It takes the car a total of 8 hours of driving time to make it to point B. However, every 2 hours, it stops to rest for an hour. That means there will be three stops before the car finally makes it to point B. 3 + 8 = 11 total hours.
