What does the narrator allude to at the end of this sentence from Mark Twain's "The 1,000,000 Bank-Note"? "So I loved her all the more, seeing she could be so cheerful when there wasn't anything to be cheerful about; for I might soon need that kind of wife, you know, the way things looked." A) the possibility of Adams having to leave the country to escape his creditors B) the possibility of requiring a wife who could match Adams social standards C) the possibility of Adams failure and having a lot of debt to repay D) the possibility of Adams taking up permanent residence in London
In this short story by Mark Twain, the main protagonist is put on a bet which the story revolves around. This excerpt is towards the end of the story. Actually, there is no metaphor and the given excerpt describes a real situation. Therefore, the correct answer is "B) the possibility of requiring a wife who could match Adams social standards." The narrator tells that "nothing to be cheerful about" since he became a millionaire unexpectedly and with "that kind of woman" he points out to the woman for his own standards.
What kinds of learning activities do active readers use to engage in the reading
Annotate the text (highlighting, noting, etc.)
“Ladies and gentlemen—” said the ballerina, reading the bulletin. She must have been extraordinarily beautiful, because the mask she wore was hideous. And it was easy to see that she was the strongest and most graceful of all the dancers, for her handicap bags were as big as those worn by two-hundred-pound men.What is ironic about this excerpt? The ballerina is described as beautiful, but she is actually hideous. The news bulletin being read on the television is about Harrison. The ballerina is able to read the news bulletin flawlessly while wearing a mask and handicap bags. The handicaps devised to conceal the ballerina’s strength and beauty actually accentuate them.
The fact that is ironic about this excerpt is this:
The handicaps devised to conceal the ballerina’s strength and beauty actually accentuate them.
What is an Irony?
An ironical statement is one that reveals the opposite of the intended meaning. In the text above, we see an example of irony because instead of the big handicap bag concealing the beauty of the girl, it actually highlighted it.
Also, although the ballerina wore a hideous mask, the narrator still guessed that she must have been beautiful. This is ironic because we might expect someone wearing something hideous to be ugly. So, option D is right.
The correct answer is: D. - The handicaps devised to conceal the ballerina’s strength and beauty actually accentuate them.

What Alliterations are used in these two stanzas of The Blake Snake by Mary Oliver.Now he lies looped and useless as an old bicycle tire. I stop the car and carry him into the bushes.
it means to guide lead or rule
Alliteration are series of words in a row (or close to a row) have the same first consonant sound. For example, “She sells sea-shells down by the sea-shore” or “Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers”.
So, in this case, the alliteration I found is "Now he lies looped and useless". I'm not sure but I don't think there are any others.

a the cost to rent a raft is $7 pee person. A raft can hold up to 6 people. There is a $3 launch fee per raft. what is the total cost for group of 6?
Firstly, you should work out what you've got to calculate. As you've got 6 people, you need to multiply $6 by 7. There is only one launch fee, and you've got to add this on the end. 6*7= 42+3= 45 Therefore, the total cost for a group of 6 is $45 Hope this helps :)
The answer is $45. Because all you have to do is mutipy 6 by 7
