Question and answer
Why do you think it is important for a thesis statement to be only one declarative sentence with 25 words or fewer? Do you agree or disagree with this writing technique?
A thesis statement is a single declarative sentence that states what you want your readers to know, believe, or understand after having read your essay. [ If we understand that definition, it will be a lot easier to work with thesis statements, so let's take a minute to break it down into its component parts and make sure we see what it contains. A declarative sentence is simply a sentence that
makes a statement rather than asking a question or making a command. It is really saying the same thing twice to say that a thesis statement is a declarative sentence. It just means that a thesis statement is a statement. The repetition is for emphasis; it helps us to keep in mind that a thesis statement is not a question. You may often start work on your essay with a question in mind. That's a good idea. But the question is not your thesis statement. Your thesis statement will be the answer to the question, an answer that you will defend and explain in your essay. ]

Why do you think it is important for a thesis statement to be only one declarative sentence with 25 words or fewer? Do you agree or disagree with this writing technique?
Weegy: I agree, because it is a focused section of text that clearly delineates the argument that is presented in the work and is usually found at the end of the first paragraph of a paper. [ The thesis statement says what the author or authors are trying to prove in the document. ] (More)
