Question:

How do I make my writing more concise?

Emily D.
Answer:

When I am trying to make my writing more concise I find it easier to do when I read it out loud. This allows me to see what words or phrases can be taken out, reworded, or combined with other ideas. A common issue I find in my writing is that I sometimes repeat things, and reading my work out loud helps me to find these instances and further condense my work.

The basic principle and goal of utilitarianism as an ethical theory is to maximize the good in the world and minimize the bad. For example, a person should always choose to commit actions that maximize the overall happiness and minimize the overall badness in the world.

Answer:

A split infinitive is an instance of a word being put between "to" and a verb. For example, "to quickly run" is a split infinitive because it takes the verb "to run" and splits it with "quickly".
