Question:

What does the word "deleterious" mean in the following sentence? Wearing a seat belt while traveling can help decrease the deleterious effects of vehicle accidents.

Question:

Read the following paragraph and answer the question. Anna woke with a jolt when she heard the heavy thud of the front door sliding closed. She jerked up from her open history book, peeling her cheek from the slick page, and blinked, trying to orient herself and to make the dark brown, heirloom oak dining table come into focus. Her neck was sore from sitting at the table and lying so long on an open textbook. Which can be inferred based on the passage? a) Anna had fallen asleep studying. b) Anna had a test the next day. c) Anna found history boring. d) None can be inferred.

Aubrey M.
Answer:

The correct answer is a) Anna had fallen asleep studying. The passage mentions that she was sitting at the kitchen table and was lying on her history book when she woke up, indicating that she had been studying. The choices b) and c) might be true, but they are not supported by the text.

Question:

Choose the best option to improve the following sentence: Although she felt trepidatious Julie was determined to succeed she had never backed down in the face of a challenge. a) Although she felt trepidatious, Julie was determined to succeed she had never backed down in the face of a challenge. b) Although she felt trepidatious, Julie was determined to succeed; she had never backed down in the face of a challenge. c) Although she felt trepidatious; Julie was determined to succeed, she had never backed down in the face of a challenge. d) No change

Aubrey M.
Answer:

b) Although she felt trepidatious, Julie was determined to succeed; she had never backed down in the face of a challenge. A comma should follow the phrase at the beginning of the sentence to set it apart. A semicolon is needed after "succeed" in order to separate two independent clauses and avoid a run-on sentence.
