PAGE 64 COURSE BOOK
The best introductory paragraph is the first one. It
introduces the topic as specified in the title, and
engages the reader’s attention by posing the relevant
question. Paragraph 2 is less suitable as all it does is
spell out the structure of the essay, and paragraph 3
doesn’t quite address the topic as stated in the title,
but appears to be more of an introduction to an essay
in favour of text messaging.
The third conclusion is the best for the essay, as it
sums up what has been said and gives the writer’s
overall opinion. Paragraph 1 is not appropriate
because it comes down in favour of text-messaging,
which does not reflect the content of the essay, and
paragraph 2 is the same. It also includes a specific
argument not mentioned in the rest of the essay.
