because of the violence and brutality
because it was the first time air warfare was used
because it was the last time a cavalry was used


Answer 1


  Because it involved many nations.


  It was called the Great War because the world has never seen a conflict of that size. Over 59 million troops were mobilized. Many millions of people died or get injured. The conflict reshaped politically, economically, socially, and culturally Europe and the whole world.

  It was named like that because the people of those days did not believe that almost 30 years after that the world would be at the most disastrous conflict of its history.

  I hoped this answer helps you.

Answer 2


because it involved many nations

What mood is created in this excerpt from Dracula by Bram Stoker? All at once the wolves began to howl as though the moonlight had had some peculiar effect on them. The horses jumped about and reared, and looked helplessly round with eyes that rolled in a way painful to see; but the living ring of terror encompassed them on every side; and they had perforce to remain within it. I called to the coachman to come, for it seemed to me that our only chance was to try to break out through the ring and to aid his approach. I shouted and beat the side of the calèche, hoping by the noise to scare the wolves from that side, so as to give him a chance of reaching the trap. How he came there, I know not, but I heard his voice raised in a tone of imperious command, and looking towards the sound, saw him stand in the roadway. As he swept his long arms, as though brushing aside some impalpable obstacle, the wolves fell back and back further still. Just then a heavy cloud passed across the face of the moon, so that we were again in darkness. When I could see again the driver was climbing into the calèche, and the wolves had disappeared. This was all so strange and uncanny that a dreadful fear came upon me, and I was afraid to speak or move. The time seemed interminable as we swept on our way, now in almost complete darkness, for the rolling clouds obscured the moon. We kept on ascending, with occasional periods of quick descent, but in the main always ascending. Suddenly, I became conscious of the fact that the driver was in the act of pulling up the horses in the courtyard of a vast ruined castle, from whose tall black windows came no ray of light, and whose broken battlements showed a jagged line against the sky.


Answer: I would contend that the mood in this excerpt can be described as fearful, ominous, dark and suspenseful.

Explanation: The author is describing a very fearful scene. Jonathan Harker is recalling the day he rode in a carriage in order to visit Count Dracula at his castle. Even though the townspeople advised him not to travel there, specially on the eve of St. George's Day, he did it. In this excerpt he is describing what he experienced on board of the calèche (driven by Dracula's servant) to which he transferred at some point during the journey. The driver had left momentarily and the English man was left alone, surrounded by scary wolves and scared horses. The terrifying setting helps to create a fearful and suspenseful mood, but one that, nevertheless, captivates the reader. One cannot avoid but to wonder what will happen next.    

The answer is suspense .............
