Answer: A) nuǎn. There are specific rules for where the tone mark goes on the word. First, tones always go over vowels, not over any kind of initial.

 


 

3. Which of the following artifacts, characteristic of the Bronze Age societies that resided in the area depicted above, most directly suggests the presence of an elite social class? Advanced World History Semester A

News Flash: Students enjoy humor.

Shmoopers tend to stick around once they give us a try. We have a knack for getting them results and making sure they don't fall asleep in the process. We love it when students laugh with (or at) us as, long as they're engaged and learning. It helps motivate them on their rigorous and effective test preparation journey.

Shmoop’s goal is to make students want to learn. We give students the tools to succeed and, along with amazing teachers and administrators, we makestudents believe they can ace any test they take. Using Shmoop in the classroom or at home is a commitmentto saying that learning is exciting, achievable, and doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings.*

It motivated me more than other test prep would. Not only is the material humorous, but Shmoop teaches in a way that is easy to understand and relate to.
