Answer:

Yes. The proposed addition expands in a relevant way on the notion of the brothers “giving back to their community.”

What is one of the most common mistakes college students make about the efficacy of their study habits?

Answer:

Reading is not studying. Active studying includes: putting together a study guide, teaching the material to somebody else, creating a concept map, and deriving examples that relate to real-world experiences.

Question:

“My very photogenic mother died in a freak accident (picnic, lightning) when I was three, and, save for a pocket of warmth in the darkest past, nothing of her subsists within the hollows and dells of memory, over which, if you can still stand my style (I am writing under observation), the sun of my infancy had set: surely, you all know those redolent remnants of day suspended, with the midges, about some hedge in bloom or suddenly entered and traversed by the rambler, at the bottom of a hill, in the summer dusk; a furry warmth, golden midges.” Based on this excerpt, how has the death of his mother impacted the narrator?

Answer:

The narrator uses his mother's death to originate a discussion about his lost youth. He insists "the sun of [his] infancy had set" at the early age of three.
