Weegy: Select your topic, then prepare a preliminary thesis statement that is a tentative central idea. In a research paper, the thesis statement will tell the reader what you will be proving about the chosen topic.

To help us ensure that our writing is not becoming repetitious in style, let’s practice writing sentences that start in a variety of ways. Please write a sentence that starts with the subject, one that starts with an adverb, one that begins with a prepositional phrase, one that starts with an interjection, and one that starts with an adjective.

To ensure sentence variety in writing, it's important to use a mix of sentence structures (simple, compound, complex), vary sentence beginnings with different types of words (subjects, adverbs, prepositional phrases, interjections, adjectives), and incorporate different sentence types (declarative, interrogative, imperative, exclamatory) based on the context and purpose of the writing. Regularly reviewing and editing the writing, or having someone else review it, can also help identify and address any patterns or lack of variety in sentence structure.

Incorrect subject-verb agreement can lead to confusion and hinder effective communication in writing. Readers might struggle to understand the intended meaning of a sentence, and it can create an impression of carelessness or lack of attention to detail on the part of the writer. Additionally, it can undermine the credibility of the text and make it appear less professional.
