Answer:

From Congress, to the Supreme Court, to the President, each branch of the United States of America's government provides a balance when properly maintained and regulated by the democratic process. By looking at the specific powers each branch wields, citizens can better understand who they should support and what their votes mean when selecting political officials. This essay will provide readers with a brief explanation about each branch of the US government and how they as individuals can interact with the different branches to work toward making meaningful change in their government.

Question:

In Shakespeare's sonnet 33, what do you think Shakespeare means in the third quatrain? Reference specific word choices or lines that support your interpretation. Even so my sun one early morn did shine, (9) With all triumphant splendour on my brow; (10) But out, alack, he was but one hour mine, (11) The region cloud hath mask'd him from me now. (12)

Answer:

I believe this quatrain exemplifies a sudden loss to the speaker of the poem. The wording of lines 11 and 12 tell a story where the speaker only briefly, "one hour mine," spends time with the "sun" of his poem before the "sun" is hidden by a cloud.

Question:

For the following sentence, identify the base clause and the structure of sentence(simple, compound, complex, or compound-complex). Provide evidence for your claim. "As the day draws its gray shawl close and night sets in, the mist falls back to the river, first lightly, remembering gravity’s pull, then with great force, aggregating into large drops that disturb the surface of the river, leaving no time for the concentric ripples to grow as the water fiercely flows."

Answer:

In the sentence, "As the day draws its gray shawl close and night sets in, the mist falls back to the river, first lightly, remembering gravity’s pull, then with great force, aggregating into large drops that disturb the surface of the river, leaving no time for the concentric ripples to grow as the water fiercely flows." the base clause is "...the mist falls back to the river..." we can identify this clause as the main clause because it is the only independent clause in the sentence. The structure of this sentence is complex because it uses only one independent clause and contains no conjunctions.
