How do you begin writing an essay if you don't know where to begin?
If you don't know where to begin when working on your essay, a good strategy to use is to write down everything you already know about your topic. From there, you can figure out where there are gaps in your knowledge so you know what to research. Additionally, you can begin brainstorming ways in which you can begin to lay out the information (i.e. do you want to show cause and effect relationships, a sequence of events, or some other method of organization?) Also, keep in mind that you don't have to write your essay in a particular order. You don't have to start with the introduction and write until you reach the conclusion. You can start anywhere in the essay you like, then fill in the remaining sections later.

What are the different types of articles in English and how are they used?
The three types are articles are "a/an," "some," and "the." "The" is a definite article, while "a/an" and "some" are indefinite articles. "The" can be used with mass and count nouns, "some" is used with all mass nouns as well as plural count nouns, and "a/an" are used with nonspecific count nouns. Additionally, "a" is only used in front of words that begin with a consonant sound (i.e. "a cat"), while "an" is used in front of words that begin with a vowel sound (i.e. "an apple, an honorable judge").
How do the ideas of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos apply to the ways in which companies use advertisements to appeal to consumers?
