Question and answer
Q: 1) Earth's crust is made up of relatively rigid plates that ride atop Earth's hot, semiliquid mantle. (2) The plates are called tectonic because they're in constant motion. (3) They can move because
Earth's mantle is a very hot and semiliquid fluid called magma. (4) Volcanoes are a result of magma rising up or erupting through a plate, particularly where plate boundaries are moving against each other. (5) Also, when plates slide against each other, causing friction along adjacent plate boundaries, earthquakes frequently occur. (6) Therefore, we often find volcanoes and earthquakes along plate boundaries. (7) Plates may also collide. (8) When that happens, mountain ranges are formed. (9) For example, the collision of the plate carrying the Indian subcontinent created the Himalayan Mountains when it collided with the Asian plate. 20. Which sentence in this passage introduces a new topic that might begin a new paragraph? A. Sentence 7 B. Sentence 5 C. Sentence 4 D. Sentence 6

User: Except for a few pigeons, Central Park was deserted. Mist hung above the chilled grass. Patches of old snow, scattered here and there, looked like white puddles. The sun hung just above the horizon, casting red and orange streaks across low-hanging clouds. The portly, gray-haired gentleman jogging down the path looked out of place. For one thing, he was dressed in ordinary street clothes, not a sweat suit. Also, every few seconds, he looked anxiously back over his shoulder. Coming closer to me, I saw that his face was flushed. He was panting, almost gasping. Abruptly, looking this way and that, he moved behind a tree. Seeming not to notice my presence, he stood with his back against the trunk, panting heavily. After a moment, he poked his head out to survey the path. It was still empty, except for a squirrel that dashed across the path like a furry dart. I checked my watch. It was now 7:30. Mentally marking the time, I aimed my camera toward the man's face. 1. From this paragraph, what relationship can you infer between the jogger and the writer? A. They are complete strangers to each other. B. They are well known to each other. C. The writer is in danger from the jogger. D. The writer is observing a typical jogger.

Weegy: C. Around sunset

User: Seasons are celebrations. A year's a Ferris wheel. Both honor our world's habit of spinning 'round a star. 2. In the first line of the poem, the poet is using a A. bias. B. metaphor. C. simile. D. loaded word.

Weegy: definitely a metaphor;) a metaphor is a shorter simile. the simile contains words such as "like", "as". (ex. an apple as red as fire), while in a metaphor the 2 terms are not compared, but rather treated as identical. [ ]

User: Below is the last stanza of a poem, "Dover Beach," written in 1876 by Matthew Arnold. Ah, love, let us be true To one another! for the world, which seems To lie before us like a land of dreams, So various, so beautiful, so new, Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light, Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain; And we are here as on a darkling plain Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight, Where ignorant armies clash by night.

The world is a confusing and hostile place.
