The old woman and her daughter were sitting on their porch when Mr. Shiftlet came up their road for the first time. The old woman slid to the edge of her chair and leaned forward, shading her eyes from the piercing sunset with her hand.The characters in the excerpt are an example of
A. religious fundamentalists.
B. people with disabilities.
C. the isolated lower classes.
D. the racially intolerant.
Answer: The right answer is the C) The isolated lower classes.
Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that the only thing that we can infer from these lines is that these two female characters lived in isolation, since, when the mother saw a stranger coming up their road, she looked in the direction he was coming from, and this suggests that she was not accustomed to see people around. Later on in the story (Flannery O'Connor's “The Life You Save May Be Your Own”) the reader will discover that the daughter has indeed a disability, but this cannot totally be discerned from these initial lines - although the fact that the girl did not look in the direction of the stranger does suggest that she could not hear him approaching, since a child in that circumstance would have reacted at least with curiosity.
I think the answer would be C because based on what I read I think the old women and her daughter are isolated and how it said that a man came to them for the first time which gives a hint that the old women and her daughter are in fact isolated lower classes

A conjunction is a word used to connect other words, phrases, or clauses inside a sentence. A coordinating conjunction, more specifically, connects parts that have the same importance inside a sentence. It doesn't establish a subordinating relationship between clauses, for example. Both clauses connected by a coordinating conjunction are equally important. The coordinating conjunctions are: FANBOYS (for, and, not, but, or, yet, so).
Subordinating conjunctions are used to introduce a dependent clause. They establish a relationship of dependence in the sentence - for the subordinate clause the make sense, it needs the main one. Examples of subordinating conjunctions are: whenever, while, until, although, because, if, even though, etc.
Finally, correlative conjunctions are pairs of words that connect two ideas. These ideas are usually expressed in similar structures. They are: neither... nor, either... or, both... and, not only... but also, whether... or, so/as... as.

Araby Every morning I lay on the floor in the front parlour watching her door. The blind was pulled down to within an inch of the sash so that I could not be seen. When she came out on the doorstep my heart leaped. I ran to the hall, seized my books and followed her. I kept her brown figure always in my eye and, when we came near the point at which our ways diverged, I quickened my pace and passed her. This happened morning after morning. I had never spoken to her, except for a few casual words, and yet her name was like a summons to all my foolish blood. What is this passage about? A. The author's infatuation with girl. B. A girl's infatuation with the author. C. The author's anger at the girl. D. The neighbor following the author.
A. The author's infatuation with girl.
In this excerpt from a short story Araby by James Joyce we are introduced with a young boy who fell in love with a girl who lives across the street. He waits in the front room of his house for her to appear and then hastily runs outside to follow her until their paths split. Expressions like when she came out on the doorstep my heart leaped, then her name was like a summons to all my foolish blood and the fact that he waits for her every day give us a clear statement of author`s infatuation with the girl.
