What is a summary of The Man Who Knew Too Much by Alexander Baron?
The story is about a man named private Quelch who likes to show off his knowledge. Narrator and his friends also gave him nickname 'professor' due to his lanky body and bespectacled looks. Although private Quelch meant to acquire a stripe and to get commission. He works hard for his ambition but due to his habit of interrupting senior officers and showing off his knowledge he was nominated for permanent cookhouse duties by Corporal Turnbull. Corporal Turnbull was a young and smart soldier who had returned from Dunkirk. He was a man not to be trifled with. Narrator and his fellow soldiers told each other that they could hammer nails into him without him noticing it. There are also many incidents in the story, when private Quelch outshone his fellow soldiers (including narrator) on aircraft recognition, when professor interrupted the sergeant and he asking questions to professor in hope of revenge. The story ends with a light note with private Quelch lecturing his fellow soldiers on how to cut potato without its vitamin values being wasted.

What is the meaning of noting details?
The meaning of noting details is that you remember things in detail from a book or story. So you note them down to remember them. In reading, this is an observation and reading comprehension skill. But we use it every day in observing our world and others. If you close your eyes and think about your bedroom, you could describe in writing 10 things located in your bedroom. If you had a oversized Oklahoma flag hanging above your desk, you could offer an explanation about that detail. These are skills used in reading a book, where a character owns something unusual, posseses some unique character trait, or acts in a peculiar way (whether good or bad). When you write a book report, book summary, or a term paper, the details you note will help you write an interesting reflection about the book or story.

What does the study of literature mean to you?
Literature to me, is the study of the human language. It is learning the grammar rules and the importance of forming a common foundation on speaking and writing so that we may have the ability to communicate with others. For me literature is not the study of grammer, but of the ideas, and themes within the literature. Literature opens up parts of people's minds, and allows people to connect by sharing thoughts. You can't just look at the letters on the page and how they are arranged, but at what thoughts they convey.

Why did Thomas Hardy disapprove establishing a Shakespeare Memorial Theatre?
Thomas Hardy was once invited to join a committee to establish a Shakespeare Memorial Theatre. His reply was that he was feeling against the desirability of such a memorial to Shakespeare. His observations and opinions on Shakespeare were uncommon but genuine. Hardy believed that Shakespeare did not particularly belong to the theatre world. His distinction as a theatre man was infinitesimal beside his distinction as a poet and as a man of letters. That his expression of himself was cast in the form of words for actors on the stage and not in the form of books to be read, was an accident of his social circumstances which he himself despised. Thomas Hardy here also made the prophetic remark that, of all poets of high rank whose works have taken a stage direction, Shakespeare will someday cease altogether to be acted on stage, and simply begin to be studied. Hardy thus proclaimed his stand against any material monument to the poet, as his works were a great monument. However he later consented to the commissioning of some 'colossal' statue in some place public. Hardy himself has noted these in his Life. He specifically noted the word 'colossal' to denounce the tastes of the vulgar minds of his times, which are exactly applicable to us in our modern times. Vulgarity never changes with Ages.

What is plot of tears of a tiger?
This is a brief description of the plot of the book: Robbie, Andy, Tyrone, and B.J. go out drinking after a basketball game. Andy is driving and careens into a wall. All but Robbie escape because his feet are lodged in the windshield. The car bursts into flames and Robbie is burned to death. Draper relates the story of Andy Jackson whose already tenuous self-esteem is shattered when he kills his best friend Robert while driving drunk. As he is burning alive, trapped in the car, Robert cries out "Oh God, please don't let me die like this! Andy!..." From that horrendous scene, Andy is trying to deal with the death of his best friend. He feels he has caused his friend to die. Everyone affected by the accident deals with it in a different way. Draper relates how Tyrone and, BJ, the other boys in the car, are able to move on with life, Tyrone through a supportive relationship with Rhonda, and BJ from finding God. But, they weren't driving, and their guilt is minor compared to Andy's. Andy's relationship with the psychologist, Dr. Carrothers, provides insight into the scars a white society can leave on a black male. He doesn't do as well in school as he could because that wouldn't be cool for a black basketball player; he sees his father as a sell out to the white establishment; he and his friends are hassled when entering stores. Andy does have all kinds of support: his coach is an understanding man; Keisha, his love, is as kind and gentle with Andy as one could ask for until even she has had enough of his tears and depression which he often hides behind outrageous behavior. But at the crucial moment when he needs them, his psychologist is flying to California, the coach isn' t home, and Keisha's mother won't wake her up for an after midnight phone call.

What is inductive argumentation?
Assuming you are talking about inductive reasoning(excluding the mathematical "proof by induction"), it is the drawing of a generalized conclusion based on what you already know. For Example: All the Ice I have seen so far is cold, (previous knowledge) Therefore all ice is cold. (Generalized conclusion) Another example is: All Cats I have seen walk on four legs, therefore all cats walk on 4 legs.
