A original paragraph or passage while mistakes may

This preview shows page 3 - 5 out of 5 pages.

A. Original paragraph or passage While mistakes may have helped in few cases, the majority almost always lead to a minor, if not major, setback. Another prime example of this is the Chernobyl incident. After the core of the nuclear reactor began to meltdown, operators at the plant made crucial mistakes that lead to the contamination of the surrounding area. Not only this but the Soviets mistake of withholding the meltdown from the public lead to the problem escalating. The mistake left a 30-kilometer area unsuitable to live in, killed multiple people, and displaced many, many times the number dead. This shows a prime example of how mistakes have led to the catastrophic setbacks in the human race. B.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
