The following is an example of a weak premise for an essay comparing two books regarding George Washington's life: Talley's dependence on the work of only one historian makes his paper less trustworthy than Kirk's. Option C is the right answer. For the same reason, option D is also incorrect.
A weak conclusion states that because two things are equal to each other, then they are identical. In this case, the conclusion is weak because it does not follow logically from the data presented in the argument. Even if both Kirk and Talley were biographers of George Washington, that would still not necessarily mean that their accounts were identical. They might have different opinions about what should be done with Washington's estate or something else entirely. Thus, the argument fails to prove its point.
A conclusion is considered effective when it answers the question raised by the topic sentence. In this case, the question is "whether or not Kirk's account is more accurate than Talley's." The correct answer is found in option A. Without getting into an extensive discussion of history here, we can say that it is not effective because the argument has failed to prove its point. Even if Kirk's biography was written up until now while Talley's was published back in 1776, that would not make Kirk's account any more accurate than Talley's.
The essential point of an essay is stated in the thesis statement. All essays have a main idea to support their claims. In Brainly articles, this main idea is called a thesis. People who read articles online will usually look for a short sentence that summarizes the whole article. This summary sentence is called the thesis statement.
Using the text below as an example, the writer's goal was to explain to his readers why children should not play with electrical devices by using information found in the text to support his argument. The main idea of the essay is found in the first sentence which states: "Children should not play with electric toys because they could be injured or even killed." This sentence serves as the thesis statement for the piece.
Now let's take a look at some other examples of essay topics. Using these as guides, writers can create their own essay questions. (For example: "Why are marriage vows found in the Bible?" could become "Marriage vows found in the Bible help explain why Christians marry Jews.)"
Finally, here is how all three parts of an essay topic might appear on the AP English Language and Composition Exam.
The correct answer is a. The body appears at the end of the essay. This is incorrect since the body of an essay, also known as the supporting paragraphs, is located between the introduction and the conclusion, rather than in the conclusion. (It comes before the ending.)
The body of the essay provides evidence for the argument presented in the introduction and links the introduction to the conclusion. It should include three basic components: a summary of the information given in the introduction, examples or cases on which or upon whom to base the argument, and conclusions drawn from the information provided by the introduction.
An example of a good body would be as follows: "In conclusion, the writer argues that women deserve equal rights because studies have shown that countries where women are granted equal rights have higher rates of economic growth than countries where they are not granted this right."
A bad body would be one that lacks any of these components. For example, a body that presents only a summary of the information given in the introduction but no examples or conclusions would be considered lacking in detail. A body that ignores the fact that it is used to link the introduction to the conclusion would be considered lacking in integrity. A body that contains unnecessary information such as facts that do not support the argument made in the introduction would be considered wasteful of space and time and thus be deemed ineffective.
