Question:

How do I cite an author and page number in my paper?

Inactive
Amber P.
Answer:

You find a way to insert the quote you are going to cite, and at the end of the quote, you include in parenthesis the author's last name and the page number the quote can be found on. This method only works with MLA format.

Question:

What is Rudyard Kipling's short story "The Mark of the Beast" really about?

Answer:

Well, when you take into account that the short story is part of the Victorian Gothic genre, you can evaluate how England's Victorian society regarded Indian citizens. During the Victorian era, India was under British rule. First, evaluate the story from a colonial discourse point of view. Then begin to pick out instances in the text that could further this. Only then will you begin to understand the meaning of its events. Think colonial discourse, clashing ideologies, white supremacy, and think about what British Victorian citizens were afraid of (the Other, pagan religions, a regression in human evolution).

Question:

What is wrong with this sentence? > Is this you're pen?

Answer:

The error in this sentence is "you're". You're is a contraction made up of the words you and are. Therefore you're means you are. Yours is possessive. So if someone is asking if the pen belongs to you, they would use yours. Is this your pen?
