Answer:

(Answer: A) The key to writing an effective essay is clarity. This often means finding the most effective way to convey information. Answer B is not awful, but it conveys no more information than Answer A and is more difficult to read.

Answer:

Mereology is the study of parthood relations. In other words, how do we know when something is a part of something else? Should we think of the atoms that compose an apple as individual atoms or as one whole apple? Mereology is a subset of ontology, the study of what does and doesn't exist.

Answer:

A play called Ye Bare and Ye Cubb presented at Fowkes Tavern in Virginia in 1665. The only reason we know of this play's existence was a bad review written by a townsperson. No copy of the play is around today, however, it is believed to have been written by three of the actors who performed in it. It would not be for another 100 years that a 'professional-grade production would happen in the USA.
