Question:

What does a thesis statement consist of?

Jana K.
Answer:

A thesis statement, or argumentative statement in academic writing, is the reason you are writing your paper. A correct thesis includes the topic, your opinion on the topic, and your three supporting reasons for your view. It is located in your introductory paragraph and is a road map that explains to the reader what steps you will take to advance your argument. It generates organization and theme to your paper.

Question:

Discuss the values of Elizabethan culture and society that Shakespeare observes and/or questions in Romeo and Juliet.

Jana K.
Answer:

Elizabethan audiences would have been quite interested in the idea of private acts of revenge in response to wrongdoings committed on themselves or their family. This is a key element in the conflict as observed in Romeo and Juliet. Additionally, Shakespeare suggests that the Fate of the characters were linked to astrology and supernatural forces as Elizabethan audiences were drawn to all things mystical. Shakespeare also works to upend the customs and aristocratic society as seen through two rebellious lovers and their questioning of traditional patriarchal order.

Question:

Problems in subject verb agreement are very common. In the following example, locate the subject and agree the verb. The top democratic candidate, and two of his aides, (has/have) entered the auditorium to greet the audience.

Jana K.
Answer:

Sometimes phrases other than prepositional ones follow the subject. Usually they are set off by commas and are introduced by words and phrases like including, with, in addition to, together with, as well as, or accompanied by. The subject will not be found in these phrases. In the above example, the correct subject verb would be "candidate has."
