Question:

What modes of figurative language would be more appropriate for a narrative essay than an expository essay?

Inactive
Abbey P.
Answer:

Narrative essays are more inclined to delve into deeper descriptions and characterizations than expository essays, as expository essays reflect a more academic style of writing. Therefore, figurative language such as personification, the attribution of human-like qualities to non-human items, and onomatopoeia, the written expression of literal sounds, are more likely to be used to characterize narrative writing.

Question:

Solve the algebraic equation below: 12x + 3 = 51

Answer:

This equation can be solved by isolating the variable "x". To isolate the variable, we must get "x" by itself on one side of the equation, and all other values on the opposing side of the equation. We can do this by performing opposite operations. Step 1: Subtract 3 from both sides of the equation. *remember, what you do to one side, you must do to the other!* 12x = 48 Step 2: Divide 12 from both sides of the equation to isolate "x". x= 4 Now that x is isolated, you are left with your final answer ---> x= 4

Question:

What would be an appropriate reconstruction of the below sentence that would remedy the error in parallelism: "Coach Crawford instructed the team to jog around the field, do jumping jacks, and to do pushups."

Answer:

With correct parallelism, the sentence would read: "Coach Crawford instructed the team to jog around the field, do jumping jacks, and do pushups." The second sentence consists of a list that begins with a verb to introduce every new sentiment. The first sentence begins its first two items with a verb, but breaks the parallelism by beginning the last sentiment with a preposition ("to") instead of a verb ("do").
