B.Sara often wondered if the stories that her classmates told were true. Tom said that America had streets paved with gold. Marie said that no one in America ever went hungry. Sara wasn't sure if she should believe the stories, but if they were true, she thought, America must be the most wonderful place on Earth is written in narrative mode. A narrative tells a real or imagined story.
This text from the nineteenth century, tells us the story of Timothy Birchall, who leaves England on a transatlantic journey to meet up in New York with his uncle, who moved to America a few years earlier and had become a successful merchant. Timothy's uncle assured him that, once in New York, he would only need six months to have enough money to provide a comfortable home for Timothy's mom and sister. What made Timothy board the ship at the end, was the thought of providing his family with a higher quality of life.
Timothy's journey was not easy, there were storms rocking the ship, the air was hot and the part of the ship where he was staying had a bad smell to it.
However, one day it all calmed, and he was able to go to the upper level. There, he saw the Statue of Liberty, a sign of the land of promises. Once the ship docked, there was a medical examination and at the end, he was allowed to proceed. It was then when he felt confident in his decision (for the first time)
Since the texts focus in the opportunities Timothy would get living in America and how much money he would make there, an effective persuasive conclusion would be:
c) Set sail on a ship of dreams to the land of opportunity!
D) Around him, mothers strived to hush crying babies and fathers invented stories to entertain exhausted children is the correct answer.
Based on the tone of the passage, the phrase marked with the number three has a different tone from the others. In this phrase, the language seems to be less solemn and formal than in the others; due to the situation narrated in the story (which is related to a farewell and the solemnity it involves) a more formal language is required; the other phrases do have it, so letter D is the correct answer because it provides this language and adjusts the phrase to the others.
D) You can try another line, but you won't get a better offer!
D)Around him, mothers strived to hush crying babies and fathers invented stories to entertain exhausted children.
