Question:

When writing a thesis statement for your essay (any type of essay can come to mind), what is the most important aspect(s) your thesis statement should / could have?

Answer:

This is a question that has many layers to it. A thesis statement should outline the author's paper. It should discuss the argument being presented to the reader / audience, and it should tell which side of the argument the paper will be discussing primarily. That is to say, a thesis statement should, in essence, sum up the paper. A reader should be able to determine where the paper is leading them by the thesis statement alone - and that is the most important aspect of a thesis statement.

Question:

Robert Frost's famous poem, "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening," features the passage: "The woods are lovely, dark and deep / But I have promises to keep / And miles to go before I sleep / And miles to go before I sleep." Please give two interpretations of these lines.

Answer:

From looking at this passage, two main ideas jump out to me. On face (or literal) value, Frost could have simply been implying the narrator's journey was a long one - and that they did not have time to stop and appreciate the beauty of the woods. The narrator seems tired, in a way, and may wish to continue on with their journey with haste. The second interpretation, however, is a much more metaphorical one. The narrator could be lamenting the fact they must go on with their life, in spite of the beauty death offers. "Sleep" could be a euphemism for death, and the narrator could be upset they are having to continue in a life they do not wish to continue on it, but they feel obligation to those "miles."

Question:

There are three options below for a sentence that best describes how the farmer went about his day. Please choose the best one. 1. Farmer John got up tended the fields and went to bed. 2. The Farmer woke up, ate breakfast, went outside, plowed the fields, ate dinner, went to bed. 3. Farmer John woke up at his usual time of 5:30am, ate his customary breakfast of grits and cheese, plowed four acres of his land, ate his supper of buttermilk and cold chicken, and went to bed at 8 pm after watching his favorite television show.

Answer:

For this question, we should choose answer 3 as the best answer. Option 1 lacks commas and description of Farmer John's day. Option 2 lacks an "and" after the last item in the series as well as not giving up the farmer's name. Option 3 is the best answer because it provides description with relevant details about Farmer John's day - the reader is not left wondering what the farmer did and how he did it.
