1 over the past ten years more than two dozen athletes have died from the medical condition known as heatstroke. heatstroke occurs when the body’s internal temperature becomes so elevated that its cooling system begins shutting down. who is most at risk? surprisingly, it is younger athletes. they often either do not recognize or ignore the warning signs until it’s too late. to make matters worse, children’s bodies are much less efficient than adults at cooling themselves. a promising new product hopes to end the all too common heatstroke trend. it is called a thermometer pill.
2 while it doesn’t look much different from the average vitamin capsule, the work it does inside the body is truly amazing. once ingested these capsules send an internal body temperature reading to a portable device that is not much bigger than an iphone. a coach or professional trainer monitors the device during practices or events held when temperatures and heat indexes are particularly high. if an athlete’s body temperature reaches a dangerous level, the monitor immediately transmits an alert. the player is then rushed indoors and placed in an ice bath to rapidly decrease his or her body temperature. this is important, since internal organs can begin shutting down at 105 degrees fahrenheit.
3 while these tiny lifesavers have proven to be effective, they are quite expensive. on average the cost is $50.00 per pill. however, many parents of young athletes say that it is a small price to pay for the peace of mind it gives them on a hot, sultry day.
based on the information from the article, what inference can a reader make about thermometer pills?
a) the effectiveness of one thermometer pill is temporary.
b) the price of thermometer pills will increase over time.
c) the price of thermometer pills will decrease over time.
d) the effectiveness of one thermometer pill is permanent.
today, counterfeit would be used to describe something as an exact copy of another item without the same value.
as far as rights go, all of them are true, but if you can give me a second to read her "ain't i a woman? " speech, or if you could link it, i'll be glad to give you a more in-depth answer : )
edit: i have just re-read the speech, and the first three answers are correct. i hope this !
second edit: apologies, everyone, i misread the question. it says "valid" which indicates that we are basing our answer off of scientific facts and human morale. therefore, the correct answer is the third option: "regardless of intellect, all humans should have equal rights."
the word that should be in bold is “random”.
that being the case, the correct answer is d) an adjective.
in the part of the speech that says “the survey seems random but the results are invalid because the participants were screened”, the word in bold is an adjective.
in grammatics, an adjective is a word that modifies a noun. the adjective modifies or decribes a noun adding characteristics to it regarding size, weight, color, shape, material, or age. in this case, the adjective “random” is modifying the noun “survey.”
the correct answer is 2 and 3.
indeed, it is not possible to create a schedule without knowing what the actual goals of the research will be since depending on the goals, the research may take a longer or shorter time since the goals will be contingent upon the actual means of the research team to achieve them and that will influence the time and the dates when such goals can be accomplished.
therefore, it is first necessary to set the goals and then researchers will be able to determine the schedule.
