User: <11{8[1(10)98]}> Sometimes people get caught in a “downward spiral,” a case in which something leads to a result which in turn leads to more of the original thing, bringing on more of the result. As the process continues, the result continually gets worse and worse. An example is when people turn to binge eating when depressed, which causes them to put on weight and feel unhealthy, which then makes them more depressed, leading to more overeating, and so on. The author is mainly concerned with (Points : 1) convincing people not to overeat explaining the process of the “downward spiral” showing how overeating can lead to depression showing how some processes lead to surprising results

User: <21{8[1(07)95]}> Political science professor: Many people insist that the Internet is revolutionizing the political process. They argue that Internet debates and online political polls and chat rooms give people greater access to political information. And they’re right that online political chatter increases daily. But offering or reading anonymous online opinions does not by itself make for active political participation. In the past one would attend a rally, protest, or town meeting to engage in real politics. Today, people sit passively in front of computer screens under the illusion that they are connecting with their fellow citizens. Which one of the following best expresses the main idea of the professor’s argument? (Points : 1) Internet debates and online political polls and chat rooms give people greater access to political information. Political organizations of the past bear no resemblance to the political organizations of today. While the Internet has made more political content available, meaningful political involvement has decreased. The Internet has revolutionized the political process because it has allowed many more political viewpoints to be expressed.

Weegy: While the Internet has made more political content available, meaningful political involvement has decreased is the answer.

User: <11{8[3(02)90]}> Whereas many industries suffer during economic recessions, the art industry does well. Some think the reason is that artists feed off the anxiety and uncertainty during recessions to produce inspired works. Others think that recessions, while harmful to most people, produce a handful of very rich people willing to pay very high prices for artworks, driving up the value of the art market as a whole. The author of the passage above is primarily interested in (Points : 1) providing evidence that the art industry does well during recessions presenting reasons for why the art industry does well during recessions discussing the types of artworks that sell best during recessions describing the effect that art has on the economy

Weegy: D.) describing the effect that art has on the economy

User: <11{7[1(01)77]}> Detective: The robbery at the mall was carried out by a mall employee acting alone roughly one hour after the mall closed last Saturday night. The only employees present at the mall at the time of the robbery were security guards Evans and Clark.

User: <11{7[3(08)84]}> The president spoke to 19 congressmen from Texas to encourage them to vote for a bill.

User: 20. <11{7[2(03)79]}> Looking to increase the profits of his lemonade stand, Johann doubled the price of a cup of lemonade from 25 cents to 50 cents. This clearly shows Johann’s lack of business sense, for now he’ll almost certainly sell fewer cups at the new price and therefore make less money than before. The argument above assumes that (Points : 1) Johann is looking to double the profits of his lemonade stand the price increase will likely put Johann out of business profits from the price increase will not offset the money lost when fewer cups are sold even if Johann sells more cups at the new price than he did at the old price, he’ll still lose money on the lemonade stand

Weegy: The price you set for a product or service has a very significant effect on how the consumer behaves. If consumers believe that the price you're charging is lower than competitors it could cause a major spike in sales. [ But if the price you set is significantly higher than expected, the response can be disappointing. In either case a change in price could produce unexpected results when it comes to consumer buying behavior. Before you decide to raise the price of your existing product or service you should understand how that could affect consumer behavior. For one, when you raise the price you risk turning the customer off. If the customer has the choice to get the same product from a competitor at a lower price you could lose the customer permanently. On the other hand, raising the price could have no effect at all, especially if it is a product that is in high demand and not available at competitors. In fact, charging a higher price compared with other similar products and services sometimes entices consumers to buy because some buyers equate a high price with a superior-quality product. ]

User: 16. <21{5[1(03)59]}> Barney: Last winter, I slipped on the outside stairs of PineTree Café and broke my leg. My fall was caused by ice on the stairs that the restaurant failed to remove. Since the restaurant clearly did not provide a safe atmosphere for its customers, I am justified in taking it to court. Lydia: Unwarranted lawsuits are sweeping the country—lawsuits that have no legal merit and are brought simply to make lawyers and their clients rich. If this trend continues, soon our legal system will be swamped to the point where it won’t be able to administer justice to people who truly deserve it. You therefore should drop your case against PineTree Café. The speakers above appear to disagree on which one of the following points? (Points : 1) Barney is likely to win his case against Pinetree Café. Barney’s lawsuit against Pinetree Café is unwarranted. Many unwarranted lawsuits are sweeping the country. The legal system will soon be unable to administer justice to people who deserve it.

Weegy: Many unwarranted lawsuits are sweeping the country

User: 15. <11{5[1(01)57]}> Arthur: The solutions to most mystery novels I read are not believable. However, my enjoyment of a mystery novel depends only on its suspenseful mood and colorful characters. Norton: Roughly 80% of the mystery novels I read have believable solutions, which is good since I do not enjoy mystery novels that don’t have believable solutions. The speakers above (Points : 1) agree that most mystery novels do not have believable solutions agree that a suspenseful mood and colorful characters add to the enjoyment of a mystery novel disagree on whether a believable solution is required for the enjoyment of a mystery novel disagree on whether an author’s enjoyment in creating a mystery novel influences whether that novel will have a believable solution
