C. The authors include details about how much sugar people have eaten over time to entertain readers with surprising statistics.
When looking at the excerpt, there are no arguments being made/defended. As such, we can safely say this piece is not to persuade. While we do see details about the changes in diets, that information is in support of the statistics. The statistics present are somewhat alarming, but this seems to be done for shock value or entertainment purposes only.
The authors include details about the changes in diets over time to inform readers about how sugar has transformed what we eat.
The passage that has been shown above in the question talks about the change in the diet of the consumers from time to time with the development in the technology and ways of using and developing sugar.
The sugar that we eat today and the form in which we eat it today, it was never the same thing many years ago. From around 1800 the way and form of consumption of sugar was entirely different from the way it is done in the form today in different food items. This is what the passage in the question talks about.
The correct answer is “The authors include details about the changes in diets over time to inform readers about how sugar has transformed what we eat.” Although there is a hidden subtext that indicates that modern diets are indeed unhealthy because of the excessive intake of sugar, the author’s main concern is to illustrate above all the economic importance of sugar and how it affects other unrelated issues. It also provides hints as to what such importance means for nutrition, social justice and economic justice. The author does that by enumerating the historical facts about the indirect and direct effects of sugar on the lives of people (poor factory workers, slaves), the effect on the economy (the wealth they gained, the trade connections they made, and the banking systems they developed in the slave and sugar trade), the effect on culinary practices (jams, cakes, syrups, and tea) and finally its effects on human health (Americans eat an average of 140 pounds every year).
I'd say D, "Sugar supplied the energy, the hint of nutrition, the sweet taste to go with the warmth of tea that even the poorest factory worker could look forward to," is your answer.
Explanation: The direct quotes:
"Tea had 'become an economical substitute to the middle and lower classes of society for malt liquor,'"
"The new drink soon became not only cheap but necessary,"
"Why did the English, in particular, need a low-cost, filling hot drink? In a word: factories,"
"Factory workers needed cheap food that was easy to transport and that gave them the energy to last until the next break, "
"English workers were offered sugary cookies and candies—what we call today energy bars—that quick pick-me-up that helped workers to make it through their long shifts,"
"Sugar supplied the energy...Sugar was a necessity,"
all suggest that sugar (and tea) were necessary to stay energized during the long, factory work day in the 1800s in England. So your best option is choice D.
The answer is c "Starting around 1800, sugar became the staple food that allowed the English factories—the most advanced economies in the world—to run."
The image shows English factory workers enjoying sugar during their break.
This image supports the text because it is shown how a smart manufacturer uses sugar to encourage workers for work. It is shown how many sweets products have become a part of the break at the factories. These sugar products were impulsion for workers who have worked in long shifts. In a text, it also represents the benefits of using sugar and availability for everyone to have these sugar products.
C: The image shows that factory work in the 1800s was labor intensive.
got it right on edge! <3
The correct answer is: simile
Through this text, we can see that the phrase "It is as if a great earthen pot has dropped from an unreachable rafter'' represents a comparison with the doubts that the narrator presents. This comparison is made through two elements that have nothing in common, but that the author uses to create a new meaning about one of them. This is done through simile.
neither black nor white but they were called Colored people
Answer:Please, see below:
Thoreau states, “… When an acorn and a chestnut fall side by side… bothobey their own laws…” (3). This can be interpreted as success being obtainable withoutthe assistance of another. The acorn and the chestnut are two individuals that are uniquein their own way yet had the same result. The same goes for people; for those reachingthe same goal as another, it is much better to do it under your qualities and your own way.The purpose of this passage was for Thoreau to inform his audience on his viewson the government and its negative affects on civilization. With its restrictions, peoplecannot fully live up to their potential because the bureaucracy will always limit them.Thoreau wants his audience to become successful in their own manor and uses theserhetorical devices to sync with his readers
