How should you start the main paragraph in the body of an essay, after you have written the introduction and thesis?
Following an introduction and thesis, your next paragraph should start with a topic sentence. The topic sentence introduces the reader to the overall point you will be making in the rest of the paragraph.
What literary technique do Jonathan Swift, George Orwell, and Kurt Vonnegut use to criticize modern society and the world around them?
These authors use satire to comment and criticize on the parts of the world and society that they find ridiculous, humorous, lacking, and condemnable.
Which is correct: A) They were going to go to the restaurant, but then they decided to stay home. B) They are going to go to the restaurant, but then they decided to stay home.
The answer is A), They *were* going to go to the restaurant. The second part of the sentence reveals that they did not go to the restaurant, so you would use the past tense to indicate something that they *were* going to do, not something that they *are* doing.
