What is wrong with the following sentence? "Despite his love and appreciation for many cuisines, Tyler liked neither pasta or pizza." A) There should be a comma after pasta B) It should be "pasta NOR pizza" C) There should not be a comma after cuisines D) There's nothing wrong with the sentence /// How do I improve my test-taking skills, when I often feel overwhelmed by the questions in front of me?
The answer is B. This is because anytime the word "neither" is in a sentence, it must be matched with "nor". /// One key to improving your test-taking and feeling less overwhelmed is tackling the questions you know first. Even though it may initially feel odd to skip certain questions or leave ones blank, getting a few certain points under your belt helps develop confidence, which goes a long way. That shift in mindset will help you feel more empowered to tackle the rest of the challenges you face, as opposed to spending too much time on the first few questions that you may not know, and thus feeling overwhelmed and anxious the rest of the exam.
How do I create a more well-rounded, convincing argument in a persuasive essay?
In order to have a convincing argument, it's important to have a thorough analysis and understanding of the issue that you are focused on. The best way to ensure you are going in depth is to not only provide points to support your argument, but to also acknowledge and break down counter points. For example, if you are arguing that basketball players in the WNBA should be paid more, it's not enough to just list out a bunch of reasons why that should be the case. In addition to explaining why, you should also point out the opposing position and explain why it is a commonly held stance. Then, you should proceed to delineate why it is the incorrect, or unfavorable argument. This showcases your understanding of multiple sides to the issue, while also indicating that you are able to convincingly undercut the opposing viewpoints. By incorporating this writing strategy into your persuasive essays, you will undeniably create a more well-rounded, convincing argument that readers will appreciate.
Consider the following scenario: California is a large worldwide producer of almonds. These almonds are consumed both domestically and internationally. One of the biggest consumers of almonds is India; the nation imports a ton of California almonds each year. However, they just instituted a 25% tariff on almonds from California. How is the price of California almonds in the US affected by this tariff in India?
Since India, a large foreign consumer of California almonds, has placed a tariff on importing these almonds, the demand for said product in India will decrease. As a result, California almond producers will have a surplus stock of almonds. This increased supply must then be sold domestically; as a result, the domestic (US) supply curve has shifted right. When the supply curve shifts right, the market equilibrium price goes down. Thus, prices for California almonds in the US will DECREASE to accommodate for the increased supply, which has been caused by the Indian tariff.
