Question:

Read the passage below. Can it be improved? What changes would you make? Demonstrate. "Samuel Langhorne Clemens was also known as Mark Twain. He was born, raised and lived in Missouri until the outbreak of the American Civil War which started in 1961. He was influenced by his upbringing in the Missississippi Valley because of its regional and cultural impact on him. Also, his interest in parapsychology and his love for travel plus his relationship with the outdoor shaped him to be a transcendentalist like his contemporaries from New England such as Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman. Transcendentalism is a literary and philosophical movement that is believed to be based on five principal tenets."

Answer:

I improved by removing passive voice and creating compound sentences. "Samuel Langhorne Clemens, more commonly known by his pen name, Mark Twain, was born, raised and lived in Missouri until the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861. His upbringing in the Mississippi Valley, with its regional and cultural impact, his interest in parapsychology, his inclination toward travel and his relationship with the outdoors cast him in the mold of a transcendentalist; as much as his New England contemporaries, Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman. At its core, nineteenth-century Transcendentalism as a literary and philosophical movement can be boiled down to five principal tenets."

Question:

What are the 5 W's and H questions and how are they best applied? Provide the expanded version of each in your response.

Carolette M.
Answer:

The 5 W's and H questions, often referred to as journalistic questions, are who, what, when, where, why and how. They constitute the basic structure for information-gathering prior to writing a report, an article or a research paper. Specifically, each question asks the following: who was involved, what happened, when did it happen, where did it happen, why did it happen and how did it happen.
