Which two pairs of lines in this excerpt from "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe best show that the speaker is still haunted by the memories of Lenore? may chose more then one 1)Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore
2)This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core
3)But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er,
She shall press, ah, nevermore
4)Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor
5)Respite—respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!"

The fifth one is correct, as it directly mentions Lenore's name.Can I have Brainliest, please?  Thanks!!

Are these the lines you were referring to?


1)Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking

Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore 


2)This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing

To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core


3)But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er,

She shall press, ah, nevermore


4)Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer

Swung by seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor


5)Respite—respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!

Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!"


The answer would then be 3 and 5.


The lines of choice 3 is referring to the velvet violet lining of the cushion where Lenore used to sit. He remembers that Lenore will no longer sit on that cushion again. 


The lines of choice 5 on the other hand refers to the part where he was having delusions. The imaginary smell he supposed was nepenthe, which in mythology was a drink or a potion that helps one forget. He claimed it must be a scent sent by God to help him forget Lenore.

Select the verbal; indicate whether it is a participle, gerund, or infinitive; and indicate how it functions in the sentence. Sprinting, the gazelle outran the three lionesses

Answers

Sprinting, the gazelle outran the three lionesses.


Verbal:   Sprinting

Type:   Participle

Function:  Adjective


I can inform you with confidence that this is 100% accurate.

It is a gerund. If we added the preposition 'by' like, 'by sprinting the gazelle outran...', we'd know better that prepositions, the case with 'by' for instance, went with gerunds.

What does this dialogue from Travels with Charley show about the man Steinbeck is talking to?


The man’s wife thinks he talks too much.

The man is not very talkative.

Steinbeck thinks the man talks too much.

The man is rude because Steinbeck is a writer.

Answers

Answer:

B. The man is not very talkative.

Explanation:

Though yes, a is correct (as a fact) it is incorrect in this form. The man that Steinbeck is talking to does not talk very much. Saying that his wife says that too is just pointing you to know that this is the normal man.

We know that he was quiet with this man and he is quiet with his wife, so we know that he just isn't talkative.

Thus, the correct answer is B. The man is not very talkative.

Answer:

The man is not very talkative.

Explanation:

This is because when Steinbeck asks the man a question, he answers with one word. And when the man replies with "That's what my Mrs. says", he's being sarcastic.

Read the excerpt from act 1 of A Doll’s House. Mrs. Linde: Yes, but your father gave you the necessary funds.

Nora: [smiling] Yes, that is what Torvald and all the others think, but—

Mrs. Linde: But—

Nora: Papa didn't give us a shilling. It was I who procured the money.

Mrs. Linde: You? All that large sum?

Nora: Two hundred and fifty pounds. What do you think of that?

Mrs. Linde: But, Nora, how could you possibly do it? Did you win a prize in the Lottery?

Nora: [contemptuously] In the Lottery? There would have been no credit in that.

Mrs. Linde: But where did you get it from, then?

Nora: [humming and smiling with an air of mystery]. Hm, hm! Aha!

Mrs. Linde: Because you couldn't have borrowed it.

Nora: Couldn't I? Why not?

Mrs. Linde: No, a wife cannot borrow without her husband's consent.

Nora: [tossing her head] Oh, if it is a wife who has any head for business—a wife who has the wit to be a little bit clever—
How does this excerpt best develop the theme that society places limits on the roles of women?

1.As a woman, Nora is supposed to do whatever it takes to save her husband, but she cannot act alone.
2.As a woman, Nora cannot borrow money, but she does so behind her husband’s back in order to save him.
3.As a woman, Nora cannot discuss money with men, so she does not reveal her actions to her husband.
4.As a woman, Nora is supposed to be flawless, so she must hide from her husband any mistake she makes.

Answers

In this excerpt from Act 1 of "A Doll's House", by Henrik Ibsen, the option that best develops the theme that society places limits on the roles of women is 2. As a woman, Nora cannot borrow money, but she does so behind her husband's back in order to save him. Society forbids Nora to ask for a loan. She asks for money to save his husband, but she cannot tell him because he would not accept it. So she has to face Krogstad's blackmail alone.

I would say the second one because she can’t borrow money with out her husbands concent. So she borrows the money behind his back.
