Question and answer
Martagon lilies are large, ornamental plants with large, pink petals that curl away from the center of the blossom. They are often referred to as Turk's cap lilies, because the shape of the flowers
look very similar to Turkish turbans; furthermore, martagon is Latin for "turban-like." This information supports which of the following general assertions about flowers? 1. Naming flowers is useless because they should only be appreciated for their beauty. 2. It is possible for a flower's name to be unrelated to its genetic makeup. 3. There is no flower that is named after the pope's ceremonial headdress. 4. The more beautiful a flower is, the less likely it can survive in cold temperatures. 5. When a flower is named, it is important to use some sort of Latin terminology.
Naming of plants takes place at two distinct levels. Common or vernacular names are completely unregulated, and this can lead to great confusion and duplication. A good example the bulbous plant known in England as the bluebell. [ In Scotland, its name is wild hyacinth and, to a Scot, 'bluebell' means a completely unrelated plant! In the rest of Europe, of course, it has a number of other local
common names. In contrast, the same plant has but one current scientific or botanical name: Hyacinthoides non-scripta. Many plants do not have any vernacular name in general use. Such considerations prompted the development of the present system of scientific nomenclature. ]

Weegy: Can you please shorten the question? User: people occasions surprise. Elected magistrates do not make the American democracy flourish; it flourishes because the 5 magistrates are elected temporarily rather than crowned to sit permanently on thrones. It is unjust to suppose that the patriotism and the zeal which Americans display for their fellow-citizens is insincere. Although private interest directs the greater part of human actions here in 10 the United States as elsewhere on the planet, private interest does not regulate them all. I have often seen Americans make great and real sacrifices to the public welfare; and I have remarked a hundred instances in which they did not fail to lend faithful support to each other. 15 The free institutions which the inhabitants of the United States possess, and the political rights of which they make so much use, remind every citizen, and in a thousand ways, that he lives in society. As American freedoms constantly impress upon his mind the notion that it is the duty, as well as the interest, of people to 20 make themselves useful to their fellow-creatures, the American's heart readily leans to the side of kindness. Who would be most likely to argue with the main idea of this passage? 1. an immigrant who is applying to become an American citizen. 2. a member of the local Volunteer Fire Department. 3. the authors of the Declaration of Independence. 4. a socialist who does not trust citizens to help others voluntarily. 5. the producer of a TV special about hospital volunteers.
