Explanation:

Please Please I really need some help! Identify the verbal and its function in the sentence:

I would rather be sleeping!

It is a gerund functioning as a noun.
It is a gerund functioning as a verb.
It is an infinitive functioning as a noun.
It is an infinitive functioning as a verb.

Answers

Hello there! I believe your answer would be:

B: It is a gerund functioning as a verb.

Explanation: It couldn't be infinitive since the phase would have "to be" in it, which it clearly does not. It is not a gerund functioning as a noun since the sentence would have some form of "sleeping is nice". Therefore, if we use Sherlock Holmes's logic (It is an old maxim of mine that when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. -Sherlock Holmes) The only answer that could be applicable is B.

I hope that you find my answer to be helpful, and I would like to hear if this was correct. Also: Brainliest would be greatly appreciated.

Most people read some piece of nonfiction every day of their lives. We are surrounded by news, opinion pieces, political speeches, and essays. Think of a piece of nonfiction you’ve read recently that stuck with you after you read it. It should be a piece of nonfiction that was so engaging that you wanted to share it with friends. Perhaps it was one of the pieces of nonfiction from this unit. Describe the work, its context and purpose, and explain why it stuck with you. Use that piece to explain how nonfiction compares to other types of writing. Consider elements that are shared across types of writing and elements that are different in nonfiction. What elevates a nonfiction article in a magazine into a work of literature? What allows a piece written for a specific informative, persuasive, or other purpose to emerge as something more enduring?

Answers

Describethe work, its context and purpose.

The work is“This change Everything” by Naomi Klein. It is a nonfiction book that detailsthe recent years if the journalist diving into the subject of climate changeand sustainable development. Its purpose is to expose tactics use by economicsubject and to actively propose a new way of living, one that is more inresonance with the planet.


Explain whyit stuck with you.

It stuckwith me because it is compelling, detailed and mind-blowing. It explain thethem with clarity and without reserves, and it explains also the causes, thereasons the behind the scenes that we usually don’t have access too. Moreover,it forces you to deal with the subject on a very personal level.


Use thatpiece to explain how nonfiction compares to other types of writing. Considerelements that are shared across types of writing and elements that aredifferent in nonfiction.

Whilenon-fiction tells a story, exactly like fiction story, the story thatnon-fiction tells it is often based on real event and has a significance in theway it is told. There is also a language more pragmatic, focused on the actionmore than the characters. The style is more direct and often journalistic.


Whatelevates a nonfiction article in a magazine into a work of literature?

The abilityof the writer to compelled, engage and create an audience.  The way the author tell the story, no matterwhat it is telling. The emotion behind the written piece, and the way that theauthor can emphasize its message and what it want to pass at its audience.


What allowsa piece written for a specific informative, persuasive, or other purpose toemerge as something more enduring?

The style,the language are relevant in this process, but I think that the best thing isthe ability of the writer of give life to its text. To make word, situation andactions come to life. Ultimate, just like for fiction, it is the ability of thewriter to engage and make people feel what he/she want us to feel.
