Item number: 6

Your answer: C

Correct answer: D

Standard (briefly): Analyze authors use of elements of nonfiction


Why did you select this answer, and why was it incorrect? I picked C because I didnt quite
understand the question but slavery and womens rights had something in common. It
was wrong because it does not contain the element of hypocrisy that the correct
answer has in common with the first sentence.
Explain what the correct answer is and why: T
he correct answer compares the ideals
celebrated by July 4th with the oppression of slavery, which has a similar theme to the
first sentence and the contradiction between liberty and lack of womens suffrage.
