Question and answer
9. In this paragraph, at what time of day is the action taking place? A. Around midnight B. Around noon C. Around sunset D. Around sunrise
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. In this paragraph, time of day the action taking place is D. Around sunrise . Sunrise, the mist has not yet been burned off by the sun. Squirrels are energetic in the early am, and early evening. More mystery- what happened the night before. Noon won't work with the mist. Midnight will not work with the squirrel. It will be dark at 7:30 if there is snow on the ground all ready. ]

Which of the following lists demonstrates various tenses of an irregular verb? A. I try, I tried, I will try B. I call, I called, I will call C. I go, I went, I will go D. I walk, I walked, I will walk
Weegy: C. [ I go, I went, I will go The small spelling change in the past tense of "try" does not count as an irregular form. Try, call, and walk are all examples of "weak" verbs: all of their past-tense forms end in -ed, and their present and past forms are otherwise identical. "Strong" verbs have notable differences between present-tense and past-tense forms, such as 'go' and 'went'; 'teach' and 'taught'; 'am' and 'was'; etc. Their past forms have few, if any, -ed endings. ] (More)
