Question:

What is the difference between a myth and a fairytale?

Inactive
Kristy K.
Answer:

Though myths and fairytales are similar and often confused, there are important differences. Myths most often explain a natural phenomenon, such as how the world was created or how elephants got their trunks. Fairytales, on the other hand, usually take place in a mythical land or time that is not specified. They tell a story and may have a moral lesson but are not attempting to explain anything. Often they include fanciful elements such as fairies or dragons.

What is a thesis statement?

Answer:

A thesis statement is the sentence or group of sentences that gives the main point of an essay. It most often comes at the end of the introductory paragraph but can also come in other places in the paragraph. In an argumentative or persuasive paper, it gives the point you are trying to argue.
