Below are the choices I think the lines 1 and 3 are the answers:

3 > Pretty child! your dress is sadly simple, and your hair seems almost as Nature might have left it. But we can soon alter all that.
4 > A thoroughly experienced French maid produces a really marvellous result in a very brief space of time. I remember recommending one to young Lady Lancing, and after three months her own husband did not know her.

Which of the following sentences does not use a coordinating conjunction effectively? a. My sister and I love tortilla soup.. b. She went shopping but didn't find anything she liked. c. He felt ill, but he had a fever. d. We decided to buy a pig, but we didn't know it would be so smelly.


b. because the conjunction 'but' is used when stating something that contrasts with the first part of the sentence. The second part of sentence b. supports the first part. The conjunction used in that sentence should be 'and'.
I think it is c.He felt ill, but he had a fever

If the following sentence contains a simile, choose the option that contains the entire simile. If there is no simile, then select "none."He snored as loud as a tractor.

He snored as loud as a tractor.
as loud as a tractor
as a tractor


The answer is "as loud as a tractor" it is not "he snored as loud as a tractor" because that's just the whole sentence and you want just the whole simile part. Good luck!
