5 2) I grew up with buckets, shovels, and nets waiting by the back door; hip-waders hanging in the closet; tide table charts covering the refrigerator door; and a microscope was sitting on the kitchen table. Correct Answer: H- sitting Reason: The verb form sitting is best here because it creates a parallel structure for all three items in the series: "nets waiting," "hip-waders hanging," "a microscope sitting."

21 8. What best describes the author’s persuasive technique? It is necessary for teenagers to communicate with their parents effectively. When a teenager lies to their parents they no longer have their parents’ trust. The parents are then heartbroken and feel as if they are lacking in child rearing. It is then difficult for parents to allow their teenager to participate in activities without parent supervision. This causes emotional friction between the teenager and their parents.

22 Pathos

23 9. What best describes the author’s persuasive technique? 3 out of 5 students carry a smartphone. The costs to insure a smartphone per year can be as much as $ It is necessary for these phones to be insured because replacement of the phone can costs parents upwards of $ When buying a smartphone consumers must remember to pay the extra amount to insure so they are not liable for replacement costs.

24 Logos
