    Listen to the catchy song about expository writing and then answer the question below. (Note: If you have trouble viewing the video, you can still answer the question.) What is the purpose of an expository essay?

    • A.

      To persuade

    • B.

      To explain

    • C.

      To tell a story

    Correct Answer
    B. To explain
    Explanation
    The purpose of an expository essay is to explain. Unlike persuasive essays that aim to convince the reader of a certain viewpoint or narrative essays that tell a story, expository essays focus on providing information and clarifying a topic. They present facts, define concepts, and analyze ideas in a clear and concise manner. The goal is to educate the reader and enhance their understanding of the subject matter.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The answer is true because the evidence from the text supports it. The passage clearly states that a short-answer response must have three essential parts: an answer in your own words, evidence from the text, and an explanation. This shows a deeper understanding of the concept because it demonstrates that a complete and effective short-answer response requires these three components. Therefore, the answer being true is supported by the evidence and shows a connection between the answer and the information provided.
