Reaghan Q.
Answer:

The four main types of writing are persuasive, expository, narrative, and descriptive. The goal of a persuasive piece is to persuade your reader to accept a certain point of view - often that of the writer. An expository piece's purpose is to explain something and give information. This is supposed to be unbiased and based solely on facts. Narrative writing is storytelling. The stories can be fiction or non-fiction, but it has the elements of storytelling. Lastly, Descriptive writing relies heavily on the five senses to help the reader understand what is being described.

Question:

In literature, some symbols are universal. What does a tree often symbolize?

Reaghan Q.
Answer:

A tree that recurs in a text is often a symbol of life or rebirth. Similarly, a dying tree can symbolize death. Sometimes, characters follow the same cycle as a tree; they grow, begin to fade, but eventually come back around in the end.

Question:

What is the difference between the words 'less' and 'fewer,' and when would you use each?

Inactive
Reaghan Q.
Answer:

There is a very important difference between these two words: 'fewer' is countable and 'less' is not. This relates to quantity. So, you could say, "There are fewer students in my class than there were last year," because you can count them. It would be incorrect to say, "There are less students in my class than there were last year." Conversely, you would say, "Please put less sugar in your coffee" rather than "Please put fewer sugar in your coffee" because, unless they are cubes, you can't really count sugar!
