Answer:

The correct citation format is as follows: Last Name, First Name. Title of Book (in italics). City of Publication, Publisher, Publication Date. So the correct citation for that book would be: Hills, Rust. Writing in General and the Short Story in Particular: An Informal Textbook. Boston, Mariner Books, 2000. Remember to italicize the title of the book.

Answer:

Three typical components are the topic sentence, the body, and the concluding sentence. The topic sentence controls contains the main idea and should contain the topic - what you are writing about - as well as the controlling idea - what you have to say about the topic. The body of the paragraph provides support to your topic sentence (including examples). The concluding sentence should restate the topic sentence or summarize the supporting sentences ending the paragraph.
