The Earth's crustal plates move due to convection currents. Please answer using complete sentences, Thank You!

Thank you for the feedback. The answer I gave is a complete sentence. Should I always include the answer after the letter for it to count as a correct answer? I am not sure of the exact rules when it comes to answering multiple choice questions. I thought as long as the answer was a complete sentence it was within guidelines.

You are correct, your answer is technically a complete sentence. I meant to refer to the inefficiency of the way you answered. Have you read any of the resources? Try to restate the question in your response. Think of it like this: In the future if a similar question is asked about which currents move the plates, one without multiple choice options, the data base is less likely to provide the user with efficient answers if we do not restate the question in our answers. We want to work towards the same goals Weegy has. I personally never include the letter corresponding to the answer to give my answers flexibility. The data base is full of answers that include some aspect of the new question asked by a user, however often they fail to actually answer the question. If we all worked as a team to restate the question in our answers etc, we can eliminate those bad answers that users get that may turn them off from using Weegy. Why should we care? If more users find Weegy to be helpful from the get go, in theory more users may then be inclined to use our services for the Weegy PRO and Research, giving the requested experts .50 as opposed to the fluctuating pay rate.

That makes sense. In the future I will be sure to leave out the letter and simply restate the question or fill in the blank with the answer. Thank you for your help. I want to make Weegy the best I can, while having fun at the same time.

Frankie17851, you probably should restate questions if it's something like a math equation or one to three or so sentences. However, I disagree with not putting the letter because sometimes the user just wants to see what he or she was looking for which the letter helps the answer stand out. Your answer here was appropriate, as far as I'm concerned.

Putting the letter in with your answer gives a greater chance that users questions in the future will be improperly answered by the Weegy auto answer. The Weegy guidelines say to restate your question in your answers, this is not my opinion it is what we are provided with as a guideline. We have a lot of work to do still as far as cleaning up the auto answer data base. Yes of course the user wishes to get the letter only as an answer because most of them are in the process of cheating on their tests, however it is not our job to make cheating easier for them, our job is to present Weegy in the most professional manner possible.

I did not say that only the letter should be placed. I do think Frankie responded appropriately with how she put the letter AND the answer. As for restating the question, this would have been a good one to restate because it was pretty short. I would not say that this answer is inappropriate and if this question is asked again, the answer is still provided (not just the letter).
Added 12/3/2011 11:23:04 AM
I agree with btatkerson. Frankie's answer is appropriate and I don't see anything wrong about it. Even if it's a question from school, it's still a question being asked here this is how we live for in this site. An example of an inappropriate >>>> The answer is C.

So what happens when we disagree on how to answer a question? Is there someone who is a tie-breaker? Also if an answer is flagged can it be unflagged in cases such as this where there is not a consensus among experts and moderators?
Added 12/3/2011 6:48:56 PM
Yes. If an answer is not supposed to be flagged, we'll unflag it. For as long as you're not breaking the basic guidelines, it's fine.
Added 12/3/2011 7:14:14 PM
I never said it was inappropriate I said we should follow the guidelines. 2. Always respond with a complete answer, not just a single letter or just a link. Try to restate the question in your response. For example, if a customer asks "Does your E3 SUV have side-impact airbags?", your response should restate the question like this: "Yes, the E3 SUV has side-impact airbags".

Angel, you're referring to answering with a letter only. In the conversation above, Frankie didn't answer a letter only so there's nothing wrong with that. She was able to complete the whole answer and the whole sentence is not necessary. There are other questions that need to be restated like a Yes or No answer. Try to restate the question in your response. For example, if a customer asks "Does your E3 SUV have side-impact airbags?", your response should restate the question like this: "Yes, the E3 SUV has side-impact airbags" it refers to other type of questions that are answerable by yes or no.

Given: y = 3x - 4. What is the x-intercept? A.(0, -4), B.(0, 4/3), C.(4/3, 0).
Weegy: The x-intercept is where y = 0. So make y equal to zero and solve for x. 0 = 3x - 4, 4 = 3x, x = 4/3 So, the x-intercept is C.(4/3 , 0) (More)

Write the following equation in slope-intercept form. 3x - 2y = 5
Weegy: Slope intercept form is always y=mx+b. [ All the answers are in slope intercept form, so the only question is which one is equivalent to the original equation. To get y by itself, first subtract 3x from both sides: -2y = 5 - 3x Then divide both sides by -2: y = -(5/2) + (3/2)x Rearraging for form: y = (3/2)x - (5/2) ] User: What is the slope of the line whose equation is 5y + 6x - 2 = 0? A.slope = 6, B.lope = -6/5, C.lope = 5/6. (More)
