The answer to these three questions should exhibit originality, thoughtfulness, insight, and critical thinking. PROVIDE IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS. DO NOT QUOTE CITATIONS AS THE MAJORITY OF THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTIONS. The answer to these questions should also demonstrate the following: • evidence of deep, analytical thinking about the assigned topic • points articulated in a clear, straightforward, and understandable way • a logical, compelling, and convincing argument, proposition or demonstration of the assigned topic use of a good academic writing style including proper spelling and no grammar issues.
The QUESTIONS SHOULD NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE ANSWER. In other words, type #1 and simply answer the question. DON’T ADD UNNECESSARY SPACES TO MARK IT APPEAR LONGER. Again, It is unnecessary to type the question out or restate the question in your answer. No fluff.
