Subject: Writing

Question:

Compare and contrast the three types of writing.

Inactive
Ed S.
Answer:

The three types of writing are persuasive, informative, and narrative. Persuasive writing is meant to convince a reader that the author's position is correct, whereas informative writing is meant only to provide information about a subject; in other words, it lacks the intent to convince the reader. Narrative is meant to provide a story. While all three can be used in non-fiction writing, narrative writing is primarily used in fiction. Moreover, good writing uses all three; in that sense, the only difference between the three is the proportion of each that appears in the text.

Question:

Describe the two parts of the First Amendment's religious freedom clause.

Answer:

The two parts of religious freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment are called the "establishment clause" and the "free exercise" clause. The first prohibits the government from establishing a formal religion, as well as from favoring one religion (or lack of religion) over the other. The second prohibits the government from passing laws that infringe on an individual's genuinely held religious beliefs.

Question:

When considering employee motivation, what are the most important incentives?

Inactive
Ed S.
Answer:

It depends. If the employee is intrinsically motivated (they are motivated by an internal desire to excel), they are more likely to respond to incentives that support their motivations, such as greater promotional opportunities, prosocial rewards such as knowing that they are benefiting clients, etc. If, on the other hand, they are externally motivate, financial incentives such as pay, bonus structures, and/or promotional opportunities are likely to be more successful.
