How do I write an abstract for my research paper?
When writing an abstract, there are four major things you should include: 1. Your research problem and objectives - define the purpose of your research: what problem does the research respond to or what research question do you plan to answer? 2. Your methods - provide a brief description of the research methods used to answer your research problem or question. 3. Your key results or arguments - summarize the main results of your research and highlight your key findings. 4. Your conclusion - explain the main conclusions of your research and provide the answer to your problem or question. An abstract is usually around 150–300 words, but there’s often a strict word limit, so make sure to check the requirements of the university or journal.

What is the difference between “how far?” and “how long?”
We use "how far" to talk about distance. For example: "How far is our classroom from the bathroom?" On the other hand, we use how "long" to talk about the amount of time something takes. For example: "How long is the movie?"
How do I write a strong thesis statement for my paper?
A thesis statement focuses your ideas into one or two sentences. It should present the topic of your paper and also make a comment about your position in relation to that topic. This position, or personal claim, should be supported with significant evidence in your paper. Your thesis statement should tell your reader what the paper is about and also help guide your writing and keep your argument focused.
