Deborah M.
Answer:

Both a body paragraph and an essay are structured the same. First, state the main point. Second, explain what is meant in the main point in detail. Third, give an example of the explanation. Finally, if it is appropriate for the composition, explain how the example illustrates the explanation.

Answer:

Answers will vary. In China, it could mean this: A friend offers to help move a table. If you are American, you thank her and stand at one end of the table, ready to lift the table with her. She stares at you, confused. She repeats that she will help you. You nod, thank her again, and stand ready to lift. She repeats herself yet again. Bewildered, you step back from the table. She hoists the table over her head and moves it.
