Question:

When referring to an individual's personality trait, would it be more correct to use the verb ser or estar?

Taylor L.
Answer:

The verb ser would be correct in this case because it is used to describe permanent characteristics. An individual's personality trait is fairly permanent. If you wanted to describe how an individual was behaving today, recently, or temporarily, the verb estar would be used instead. An example outlining this difference is "She is tired today" or "Ella está cansada hoy" versus "She is always tired" or "Ella siempre es cansada".

Question:

Which part(s) of the brain contribute to language? a) parietal lobe b) Wernicke's area c) Broca's area d) both b and c

Taylor L.
Answer:

The correct answer is d. The parietal lobes of the brain process sensory information and do not contribute to language. Broca's area, which is located in the frontal lobe, makes motor movements responsible for speech possible. When this area is damaged, individuals lose the ability to express complex thoughts or to speak long sentences. For example, "me hungry". Wernicke's area, which is located in the temporal lobe, is responsible for proper grammar and word selection. When this area is damaged, it is often referred to as "word salad" because patients will retain the ability to speak but lose the ability to form sensical thoughts. For example, "He runs with orange or ruffled spaghetti."

Question:

Which of the following demonstrates the correct use of the word "good". a) Jenna, you did so good at your softball game. b) They all agreed today was a good day. c) I didn't do good on my most recent test.

Taylor L.
Answer:

The correct answer is B. In answers A and C, "good" is used as an adverb, whereas in answer B it is used as an adjective. "Good" can only be used as an adjective. The word "well" should be substituted for good in answers A and C to make them correct, as "well" is the adverb form.
