Question:

What elements should be present in a well-written thesis statement?

Answer:

A good thesis statement requires that the author state the objective of the research paper and succinctly describe the standpoint of the writer. The thesis should convey a viewpoint in a short, clear, and concise manner that can be proved in the analysis or research that follows it. All components of the thesis' objective should be locatable within the body of the paper. Examples of a good thesis include: Students who practice daily mindfulness techniques, such as meditation, reap the benefits of fewer stress responses, lower rates of depression, and higher reported academic achievement. Birth order can strongly influence a person's relationship with their parents, relationships with friends, and how one views responsibility as an adult.

Question:

Name one tactic a researcher can employ during a database search to retrieve multiple variations of a particular term?

Answer:

Truncation or wildcard searching. Truncation involves placing an asterisk at the end of a word to ensure all its variants are retrieved. For example, if one searches for "libr*" in a database in the hopes of retrieving information on libraries, the results will include items that specifically mention libraries, library, librarianship, libros, libra, libranet, and so on. The tactic is useful if the researcher wants to avoid typing in each variation of a particular term. However, as in the above example, articles with unrelated terms may still be displayed the result list. For a wildcard search, the user places a question mark within a term to retrieve different spellings of the word. For example, "organi?ation" can retrieve both "organization" or "organisation."

Question:

Which of the following sentences represents a nonrestrictive clause? A. "When Tracy was ready to charge her phone, her cat tripped on the cord." B. Donna said, “I dislike drums because the sound is too loud.” C. "Michael, who spent the last three days fishing, is back on the job again."

Answer:

The correct answer is C. A nonrestrictive clause is a phrase that adds additional information to a sentence. In the case of C, we learn more unique information about the individual in the sentence. The clause is "nonrestrictive" because even if the phrase within the commas is removed, the meaning of the sentence is not lost on the reader.
