Answer:

The best answer is choice B. Choice B continues the pattern of beginning the sentence with a noun subject, as opposed to an infinitive. As it stands right now, the third sentence is stylistically different. Choice A begins the sentence with a gerund, as opposed to a noun. Choice C begins with a prepositional phrase, and the main subject is later in the sentence. This is also stylistically different from the first two sentences.

Answer:

in a distant manner. The speaker is speaking of a time where the subject no longer loves them. The person passes by the speaker "strangely" or in the manner of a stranger. The subject will "scarcely greet" the speaker with their eyes.

Answer:

The Chesapeake colonies had an economic system that was mainly based on farming using the labor of indentured servants as a result of the rich soil and warm climate. On the other hand, New England has rocky soil and a harsh climate not suitable for agriculture. As a result, the New England colonies' economies were based on trade and fishing because of easy access to the ocean. Both colonies did use indentured servants and slaves as a significant source of labor, and depended on trade to and from Britain to sustain their domestic economies.
