When do we use le passé composé and when do we use l'imparfait?

How are the governments of the US and the UK different?
The governments of the US and the UK differ in many ways. The United States is a democratic republic and the UK is a constitutional monarchy. The United states is a presidential system, meaning that there is a separate branch for the executive. The legislative branch is made up of a bicameral legislature with a single member district electoral system. The UK on the other hand, is a parliamentary system, meaning that the Prime Minister is the political leader and is chosen by the party from the members of parliament, rather than directly elected for the position by the people. The Queen serves as the head of state and only has a ceremonial and symbolic role today, but she has many powers on paper that she does not exercise. Parliamentary systems, such as the UK make it easier for the ruling party to pass legislation, whereas the presidential system of the US has more checks and balances and power to the minority, so the policy-making process generally takes longer.
How do I structure a literary analysis essay?
The first thing to start working on is an outline. Develop your thesis, which is your main argument, and put it at the end of your introductory paragraph. If you're struggling with this, you can write your introductory paragraph last. Find quotes and citations in the text that will serve as examples to get your point across in the body of the paper. Don't worry about analyzing every page or event, as long as you are representing the book correctly and getting your point across. Finally, tie your ideas together and explain why your thesis is correct in the concluding paragraph.
