The author would most likely agree with which statement about liquid water?
The author`s reference to "different pathways" primarily serves to
Tea is rich in compounds called polythenols, which are similar to certain compounds known to help prevent cancer. Among people in Japan, those who drink over ten cups of tea per day have lower rates of stomach cancer than others. On average, people in Japan drink much more tea than people in the United States and have lower rates of lung cancer. It is therefore likely that polyphenols also help prevent cancer.
In 1776, the state of New Jersey adopted a constitution that ignored gender in its suffrage clause, defining voters simply as adult residents worth at least fifty pounds. After 1776 women routinely participated in the state's electoral process, until, in 1801, the state legislature passed a law redefining voters solely as adult White male taxpaying citizens. Political historians have been perplexed by New Jersey's deviation from the established norm of exclusive male suffrage, finding no sign of public agitation either for or against the voting rights of women prior to their enfranchisement in 1776 or disenfranchisement in 1801. Consequently historians, downplaying the extent to which suffrage as the result of careless constitutional construction and viewed the 1801 disenfranchisement as a legislative effort to remedy this carelessness. Yet examination of revolutionary-era manuscripts indicates that the 1776 suffrage clause underwent close legislative scrutiny that led to several significant changes, thus, the absence of gender references in the final version was probably not accidental. Indeed, the evidence suggests that New Jersey's legislators believed that all who possessed sufficient net worth were entitled to vote. However, they also saw the net worth qualification as serving to prevent an overdemocratization of the voting process.
The author of the passage takes the "significant changes" to be an indication of which of the following?
Which of the following best describes the function of the last sentence of the passage?
The author of the passage suggests that if there had been public agitation regarding voting rights for women in New Jersey prior to 1776, then this agitation would have
After Henry IV usurped the English throne from Richard ll in 1399, evidence suggests the new king censored records that portrayed the new regime unfavorably. While no censorship orders are preserved, one chronicler mentions that Henry ordered all chronicles inspected. That not a single English chronicle is critical of the coup is a pretty good indication that Henry suppressed any hostile material. Moreover, the single voice with which the English chronicles praise Henry and defame Richard after 1399 is challenged by the contrary version of events recorded in the French chronicles. For most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this discrepancy was attributed to French Anglophobia, but the accuracy and value of the French chronicles has now been reappraised.
It can be inferred from the passage that many historians in the nineteenth century believed that the French chroniclers
The passage mentions which of the following as evidence suggesting censorship on the part of Henry IV?
French filmmakers of the 1920s emphasized visual style rather than narrative continuity, which was already dominant in the United States and elsewhere. Some critics have asserted that since these films flout the cinematic conventions of Hollywood, they should be regarded as important modernist cinema. While a welcome departure from the traditional denigration of 1920s French cinema, this claim overestimates or distorts the achievement of such directors as Gance and L'Herbier, since the Hollywood conventions they did not use were not yet fully established in France, where the Hollywood-style production practices that would have supported these conventions were lacking. Moreover, though 1920s French films should indeed be judged by criteria other than those underlying the Hollywood aesthetic, their slighting of Hollywood conventions does not, by itself, make them modernist or genuine revolutionary, since the weight of nineteenth-century traditions of art and literature on these films-especially in subject matter and ideological assumptions-cannot easily be disregarded.
The author of the passage asserts which of the following about "this claim"?
The passage suggests that the author would most likely agree with the critics mentioned in the highlighted sentence about which of the following?
The author of the passage states which of the following about the French cinema of the 1920s?
To reduce traffic congestion on Lochley city streets, a new road will be built to bypass the city. The road will offer a faster commute to nearly all people who live in suburbs and now commute via Lochley's streets to their jobs in other suburbs. Those cars constitute one-quarter of the cars now using Lochley's streets each weekday. Thus after the bypass road has been built, weekday traffic congestion on Lochley's streets will be substantially reduced.
Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?
Before feminist literary criticism emerged in the 1970s, the nineteenth-century United States writer Fanny Fem was regarded by most critics (when considered at all) as a prototype of weepy sentimentalism--a pious, insipid icon of conventional American culture. Feminist reclamations of Fem, by contrast, emphasize her "nonsentimental" qualities, particularly her sharply humorous social criticism. Most feminist scholars find it difficult to reconcile Fern's sardonic social critiques with her effusive celebrations of many conventional values. Attempting to resolve this contradiction, Harris concludes that Fern enjoyed "flowery rhetoric" strategically to disguise her subversive goals beneath apparent conventionality. However, Tompkins proposes an alternative view of sentimentality itself, suggesting that sentimental writing could serve radical, rather than only conservative, ends by swaying readers emotionally, moving them to embrace social change.
The passage suggests which of the following about the "contradiction" mentioned in the highlighted sentence?
It can be inferred from the passage that Tompkins would be most likely to agree which of the following about the "critics" mentioned in the passage?
The author would be most likely to agree with which of the following claims about the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone?
