Question: Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only, not ceased, but has constantly augmented. In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached, and passed. “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved—I do not expect the house to fall—but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery, will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new—North as well as South. Which of the following best describes the text structure of this section of the speech? It highlights the cause of slavery and discusses the effects it will have in the future. It discusses why slavery is a problem and predicts what the solution will be. It traces a sequence of events that have occurred in the nation’s past. It compares how legislators think about slavery to how the American public thinks about it. Part B Which sentence or phrase from the passage best supports your answer? “Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only, not ceased, but has constantly augmented.” “I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free.” “I do not expect the Union to be dissolved—I do not expect the house to fall…” “It will become all one thing or all the other.”

Part A: The text structure of this section of the speech discusses why slavery is a problem and predicts what the solution will be. Part B: The phrase that best supports this answer is, "I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free." This shows the speaker's belief that the issue of slavery is a problem and cannot persist as it is. And the statement, "It will become all one thing or all the other," predicts that a resolution, one way or another, will eventually be reached.
