Question and answer
Academic writing standards often censure the use of first- and second-person pronouns such as I, me, my, you, and your. Do you think this is appropriate? Why or why not?
Yes, i do agree with this, because in formal writing there is no place for the first person because, by doing this you are putting the reader in a position that they are not familiar with and this could make untrue assumptions about the reader.

How would you write an outline theisis statement?
Weegy: Look again at your Statement of Purpose Look at the kinds of information you have been finding while taking notes. Decide what kind of statement you have enough evidence to prove. (Be sure that you have done enough research to make a strong argument. [ You may be challenged.) Write that as your thesis statement. There are many ways to approach writing a thesis statement. Just make sure that it is not simple a fact and that you can support it with good evidence from reliable sources. Here are some ways to approach it: Define a problem and state your opinion about it Discuss the current state of an issue or problem and predict how it might resolve Put forth a possible solution to a problem Look at an issue/topic from a new, interesting perspective Theorize how the world might be different today if something had/had not happened in the past Compare two or more of something similar and give your rating about them (cars, authors,computers, colleges, books) Put out your ideas about how something was influenced to be the way it is or was (music, art, political leadership, genocide) ] (More)
