Question:

Fix the errors, if any exist, in this sentence/question. A.) Bethany did they past your house on there way home?

Maryam A.
Answer:

A.) The sentence does contain errors. First, remember to put a comma after a proper pronoun as Bethany is being directly addressed. Next, the original sentence used past, but the correct way is to employ "passed". Although the words seem interchangeable, they are not. Past refers to the time that has already elapsed. An example of the correct usage of "past": Please forget about the past. While passed refers to going by something, going further, or doing well on an assignment. An example of the correct usage of "passed": Son, I am proud of you for passing your history test! Lastly, the original sentence incorrectly used "there" when it should have used "their". "There" is a reference to location and places: An example of the correct usage of "there": Leave your plates over there While "their" refers to possession. An example of the correct usage of "their": This house is mine, not theirs. The correct answer reads: "Bethany, did they pass your house on their way home?".

Question:

Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper" focuses on the nineteenth-century idea of the Cult of Domesticity. The obedient narrator, a product of this cult, claims to break free from her husband's rule. However, the ending suggests the opposite. Does the narrator actually escape this gross subservience or does she remained trapped in the figurative yellow wallpaper? Answer the question by incorporating the story and your own analysis.

Answer:

Yes, the narrator does break free from the shackles of dependency that her 19th-century society placed upon her, albeit insanity further consumes her. Throughout her marriage, the narrator embodied the Cult of Domesticity. She mindlessly complied with all of her husbands’ demands, obeyed his every word, and only functioned as a housemaid. However, a shift occurs within her as John, her husbands, impedes her writing and creativity. Consequently, the narrator begins studying the yellow wallpaper. This wallpaper, with its floral decoration, becomes an archetype of femininity. In tandem, it also stands as a representation of the imprisonment of women within this domestic sphere. As she analyzes this wallpaper, the narrator uncovers a figure of a woman struggling to break free from the bars drawn into the pattern. This figure awakens the narrator’s realization that she too is trapped, and must escape. The end of this piece, where the narrator acknowledges her imprisonment and breaks free from it, proves that the narrator does escape the gross subservience. The narrator says, “I've got out at last in spite of you {her husband}. And I've pulled off most of the paper, so you can't put me back!”. This destroying of the wallpaper symbolizes how the narrator destroys the wallpaper in which her husband trapped her in, and that she refuses to remain obedient. The narrator took her life into her own hands and exited this enslavement. By ripping off the wallpaper, the narrator affirms her own identity separate from the overbearing oppression of masculinity. Lastly, she says, “Now why should that man have fainted? But he did, and right across my path by the wall, so that I had to creep over him every time!”. Overcome by his wife’s newfound liberation, the husband faints and the narrator creeps over his unconscious body. Some can say that she does not really abandon her subservience as she “creeps” over her husband. Connotatively, to creep implies to walk in a way that lacks confidence and is filled with trepidation. However, this is an incorrect assumption. This word usage, creeping, is the initial stage in this feminist revolution. During this period, women freedom and gender equality were fictions. Thus, this creeping over her husband showed that the narrator was slowly, and gradually reaching pure liberation. Although she slowly inches towards independence, and loses her sanity in the process, the narrator does in fact escape the Cult of Domesticity illustrated by the wallpaper.

Question:

A. )-5 + 6 - (4 + 1) + 2 + 36 /6 B.) (6 x 3) x 0 C.) 11^0

Maryam A.
Answer:

A. -5 + 6 - (4 + 1) + 2 + 36 /6 Remember PEMDAS or Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally First, you deal with parenthesis, then exponents, next multiplication, then division. After, you add, then apply subtraction 1.) Parenthesis first: -5 + 6 - (5) + 2 + 36 / 6 (Here we dealt with what was inside the parenthesis and got 5 by adding 1 to 4). 2.) Then, exponents: There are no exponents in this equation; less work for us! 3.) Next, multiplication: There is no multiplication here! 4.) Now, Division: -5 + 6 - 5 + 2 + 6 (Here we divided 6 and 36, and got 6 as the answer) 5.) Now, addition and subtraction. Combining these final steps and simultaneously applying these operations makes things easier. = -5 + 6 - 5 + 2 + 6 = 1 -5 + 8 = 1 + (-5) + 8 = -4 + 8 (In this step, we subtracted 1 and 5, and received -4. Remember when subtracting a smaller number from a bigger number, you always have to change the operation in addition and then make the second number (5 in this case) negative. = 4 B. (6 x 3) x 0 = (18) x 0 (We got 18 because 6 multiplied by 3 equals 18) = 0 (We got 0 because everything multiplied by 0 equals 0. No matter how simple or complex the equation) C.) 11^0 =11^0 = 1 (We receive the answer of 1 because everything raised to 0 equals 1)
