Question:

Examine the following sentence: "Sally watched as Brian rushed through the door. He was angry, she knew. She takes a deep breath, stands up, and looks at her reflection in the mirror." What is wrong with this sentence?

Answer:

The writer abruptly shifts tenses. The author begins in the past tense with the usage of "watched", "rushed", and "knew". By the third sentence, however, the author switches to the present tense. This sudden change can cause confusion for the reader and hurts the pacing of the story. It's important for a writer to try and stay consistent when it comes to tense.

Question:

What two major events led to America joining the side of the Allied Powers during the First World War?

Answer:

The bombing of Lusitania on May 7, 1915 caused widespread outrage in the United States. Among the 1,962 passengers, over a thousand were killed. 128 of those lives lost were American. This attack caused many Americans to rethink the country's original isolationist point of view. In January 1917 British intelligence intercepted a message from German Foreign Secretary Arthur Zimmermann directed to the German minister in Mexico. This message, later known as the "Zimmermann telegram", proposed Mexico join the side of the Central Powers should the United States enter the war. The telegram promised financial aid and implored Mexico to retake territories lost during the Mexican-American War. British intelligence passed this information off to the United States and news of the telegram was published across the United States, further outraging Americans. Although Mexico never joined the war, the damage was done, and American isolationism was fully pushed when the United States officially joined the war on April 6, 1917.
