Question and answer
describe how a body paragraph is different from an introductory paragraph
A Body Paragraph Is the main part of your essay or paper. It contains information which supports your topic paragraph, and will move the writing along from one topic to another. [ The body of your paper is everything except the introduction and the conclusion. Start each supporting or body paragraph with the statement which directly supports your topic. Then, write several more sentences to
explain this supporting statement. When you are finished, you should have the topic paragraph, followed by one body paragraph for each one of your details or support sentences, and finally your conclusion to the statement. Always reread your writing.You'll probably find a mistake. and fix it.Whenever you write think of this and don't t waste your time.Use your mind in a proper way and be smart when you write. ]

The introduction is the broad beginning of the paper that answers three important questions:

What is this?
Why am I reading it?
What do you want me to do?
You should answer these questions by doing the following:

Set the context – provide general information about the main idea, explaining the situation so the reader can make sense of the topic and the claims you make and support
State why the main idea is important – tell the reader why s/he should care and keep reading. Your goal is to create a compelling, clear, and convincing essay people will want to read and act upon
State your thesis/claim – compose a sentence or two stating the position you will support with logos (sound reasoning: induction, deduction), pathos (balanced emotional appeal), and ethos (author credibility).

Your paper should be organized in a manner that moves from general to specific information. Every time you begin a new subject, think of an inverted pyramid - the broadest range of information sits at the top, and as the paragraph or paper progresses, the author becomes more and more focused on the argument ending with specific, detailed evidence supporting a claim. Lastly, the author explains how and why the information she has just provided connects to and supports her thesis (a brief wrap up or warrant).
