Question and answer
topic sentences can be either the first or last sentence in a paragraph. What would be the advantages and disadvantages of each placement?
Being the first sentence tells the reader right away what the paragraph is about, but this is disadvantageous because it does not allow one to develop ideas first. [ Being the last sentence allows the writer to use the topic sentence to summarize information, but it does not directly give the reader information about what the topic is immeidately. ]

when should "bad" and "badly" be used and how can you tell
Weegy: Bad or Badly? We use bad (an adjective) with linking verbs such as is, seems, feels, looks, or appears. Example: "I feel bad that I missed the concern." We use the adverb badly with action verbs. [ Example: "He smells badly." This sentence means he can't detect the smell of his girlfriend's perfume, but "He smells bad" means he needs to shower and use deodorant. ] (More)
