Which sentences correctly use quotations from "A Modest Proposal"? Check all that apply. “It is a melancholy object to those, who walk through this great town, or travel in the country, when they see the streets, the roads and cabbin-doors crowded with beggars, states Swift.” Swift asserts that whoever finds “a fair, cheap and easy method” for solving the overwhelming issue of poverty in England would deserve to have “his statue set up for a preserver of the nation.” Swift claims that his proposal would be profitable because no wealthy gentleman would think twice about paying ten shillings for the carcass of a good fat child. Swift explains that his proposal would bring relief to impoverished parents because they would “be rid of the charge of maintaining them after the first year.” “This would be a great inducement to marriage, which all wise nations have either encouraged by rewards, or enforced by laws and penalties,” writes Swift about his proposal.
