Question:

Why can't I use contractions in a school paper?

Inactive
Gina D.
Answer:

Contractions are considered informal in writing. While they are commonly used in speech, informal writing, such as writing to friends, and in places where space is a premium, like text messaging, they should be avoided in professional circumstances. Using contractions in formal writing may lead to your peers and professors not taking your thoughts seriously.

Question:

Is an encyclopedia an authoritative source?

Inactive

Answer:

No, an encyclopedia is not an authoritative source because there is no peer review process for the information. While they are an excellent starting point and should be included in your bibliography, the information provided should be further researched using other scholarly materials.

Question:

What five Acts of the British Parliament in 1774 made up the Intolerable Acts and what was the consequence of their enactment?

Answer:

The Intolerable Acts, originally called the Coercive Acts in Britain, included the Boston Port Bill, the Massachusetts Government Act, the Administration of Justice Act, the revived Quartering Act, which had originally been allowed to expire in 1770, and the Quebec Act. The intention behind these five Acts was to reassert British authority and bring the colonies back in line under British rule. Instead, they led to the colonies banding together and provided the justification for forming the First Continental Congress.
