Question:

There is a popular TikTok trending right now. In the video, a man and woman each place down $20. The man offers to pay the woman $30 for the two $20 bills. The man claims that both he and the woman have made $10. Is this true? Why or why not?

Alma K.
Answer:

This is not true; only the woman gains $10. The man loses $10. The man originally has $50 if he is able to put down $20 and pay the woman $30 for her $20. However, he only gets back $40. This is a loss of $10. The woman does gain $10.

Question:

How did the fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in 1911 affect US labor laws and rights?

Alma K.
Answer:

The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire was a turning point for workers rights. More than 100 people died in the fire due to a lack of safety precautions, escape routes, ventilation, and more. This atrocity led to laborers marching and lobbying state and federal institutions for workplace safety regulations.

Question:

Which point of view does the author utilize in "Lord of the Flies," and how does this impact the reader's perception of the novel?

Alma K.
Answer:

Golding writes the novel from the third-person (omniscient) point of view. This allows the reader to be privy to all characters' thoughts, feelings, and actions. This point of view allows readers to interpret the events individually as they learn of the events through a neutral voice. The novel discusses how civilized society can unravel uncomfortably quickly under the right (and disturbing) conditions. The third person narration distances the reader from the horrific events, perhaps to make the reader more comfortable on the side of propriety, while the novel demonstrates how thin the line is between civility and savagery.
