In my experience, the sound quality at these arenas is so bad that I wonder if the architects who design them care at all about good music. For example, this past month I attended a concert at Harmony Hall. The sound quality in the upper balcony was so dreadful that I almost questioned the talent of my favorite band. I suppose those who pay exorbitant prices for tickets closer to the stage may have a better experience, but as long as arenas sell seats in their upper levels, some of us will be cheated out of good music. Rhetorical awareness can help Mackenzie identify which of the following in her writing?  a.) Positive assumptions about balcony seating areas  b.) Negative assumptions about musicians who play rock music  c.) Negative assumptions about the designers of the arenas  d.) Positive assumptions about concert ticket prices 3.1 Michaela is working on an essay about the significance of the color red in the novel Jane Eyre.

This kind of fiber helps to maintain glucose levels, too; sugars in citrus fruits are released gradually, avoiding a sugar spike and crash.

And because citrus fruits contain so much water (for example, oranges are 87% water), they can help a person stay hydrated. Choose the best topic sentence for Matt's paragraph.  a.)
