Tuesday/ Wednesday Answers
  • D: DELETE the underlined portion
    • Avoid redundancy by deleting the underlined portion. The sentence already indicates a “public place.”
    • Direct, active voice is rewarded on the ACT. The simple present tense verb is correct.
  • C: ruptured
    • While all of the answer choices are synonyms of “burst,” it is not idiomatic to say that a cell phone “ruptured” into song. The other answer choices are idiomatic.
  • H: select continue
    • No punctuation is necessary. Both answer choices F and G include incomplete clauses. The commas in answer choice J are extraneous.
thurs fri answers
  • B: after the word options

The phrase “in the world of ringtones” modifies “options.” The author is discussing options.

  • J: are creating

To maintain parallelism, use the present tense “are.”

  • C: resonating bellows

The description given for the other ringtones- “clickety-clack sound” and “goose bump-raising howl” are best matched by “resonating bellows.”
