The correct answer is:

B. His belief that money can buy happiness.

Explanation:

The Great Gatsby is a book written by F. Scott Fitzgerald that represents the 1920s, which was a time of economic growth as well as excessive drinking, and loss of morals in America.

In the novel, Fitzgerald created a character named Jay Gatsby, who only cared about superfluous things and threw parties to people that were there only for interest, all to attract the object of his affection; Daisy Buchanan. Gatsby's parents didn't have any money, and he grew up thinking he wouldn't be like them, and believed that money can buy happiness. This belief led him to spend money and tried to fix his problems with it and to participate in illegal activities. Gatsby thought that everything had a solution because he was rich so he ended up surrounded by people that didn't care for him because money can't buy friendship or love.

Trevor has been asked to analyze the rhyme scheme in Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 18.” A Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, B And often is his gold complexion dimm'd, C And every fair from fair sometime declines, D By chance, or nature's changing course untrimm'd: Which is the correct rhyme scheme for this stanza? aabb abcd abab abcc
Solution 1

abab

When determining rhyme scheme the first line always receives an A. If the next line rhymes with the first it earns a B. The third line receives a new letter if it doesn't rhyme with the previous lines. If it does have the same sound, then it receives the same letter as the line that matches, or rhymes, with it. Declines rhymes with shines so they both receive the label A. Dimm'd does not  rhyme with shines so it receives a B. Untrimm'd rhymes with dimm'd so it receives a B. The rhyme scheme is abab.
