  • 20. 

    A good lead in a paper will 

    • A.

      Grab the reader's attention

    • B.

      Be boring

    • C.

      Always ask a question

    Correct Answer
    A. Grab the reader's attention
    Explanation
    A good lead in a paper is designed to grab the reader's attention. This means that it should be engaging, interesting, and compelling, in order to make the reader want to continue reading the rest of the paper. A boring lead would not achieve this goal, as it would fail to captivate the reader's interest. Similarly, while asking a question can be an effective technique in some cases, it is not a requirement for a good lead. Therefore, the correct answer is "grab the reader's attention."

      Lead

    Correct Answer
    C. Lead
    Explanation
    Starting a paper with a question, a quote, or onomatopoeia is the way to write a good lead. A lead is the opening paragraph or section of a written work, and it is meant to grab the reader's attention and introduce the main ideas or themes of the piece. By starting with a question, quote, or onomatopoeia, the writer can immediately engage the reader and make them curious about what will be discussed in the rest of the paper. This technique is often used to create a strong and compelling introduction.

By restating the prompt, the conclusion reminds the reader or audience of the original topic and reinforces the overall message or argument. This helps to bring closure to the piece and leaves a lasting impression on the reader or audience.

      A long sentence

    • B.

      A compound sentence

    • C.

      A simple sentence

    Correct Answer
    B. A compound sentence
    Explanation
    When you combine two simple sentences with a conjunction, you will have a compound sentence. A compound sentence is formed by joining two independent clauses with a coordinating conjunction such as "and," "but," or "or." This allows for the expression of two related ideas in a single sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    A compound sentence needs to have

    • A.

      A comma followed by a conjunction

    • B.

      One idea

    • C.

      An adverb

    Correct Answer
    A. A comma followed by a conjunction
    Explanation
    A compound sentence needs to have a comma followed by a conjunction because it is a sentence that consists of two independent clauses that are joined together. The comma is used to separate the two independent clauses, and the conjunction is used to show the relationship between them. This helps to make the sentence clear and easier to understand. Without the comma and conjunction, the sentence would not be properly structured as a compound sentence.
