Question:

What is the difference between active and passive voice?

Solomon H.
Answer:

Active voice occurs when the subject of a sentence performs the action. An example of active voice lies in the following sentence: The children cleaned the room yesterday. Using this voice places an emphasis on the performer of the action. Conversely, passive voice operates by placing emphasis on the subject receiving a particular action, as noted in the following action: The room was cleaned by the students yesterday. While active voice conveys a clear and more direct tone in writing, passive voice operates more distant and subtle.

Question:

What is the difference between tone and mood in literature, and how do these differences emerge?

Solomon H.
Answer:

Tone is the attitude expressed by the author; whereas, mood is the feeling resonating within the reader. Tone is created through word choice, more specifically by the author's ability to convey emotions and feelings through such words. Mood is established usually through setting and imagery, both of which help to describe items in the world of the story.

Question:

If one exists, identify the problem underlying the sentence "Every boy must bring their own lunch." After doing so, resolve the sentence.

Solomon H.
Answer:

This sentence displays an error in pronoun agreement. If the noun is singular, the pronoun must also be singular. Therefore, the corrected sentence becomes "Every boy must bring his own lunch."
