How To Spot A Conclusion
|Education : English|
Sometimes you will be asked to pick the sentence that you think is the conclusion of a piece of writing.
Often this comes at the bottom of the text, but this is not always the case - some people state their conclusion first then argue to it, a sort of inverted pyramid approach.
To spot a conclusion you should look for a sentence that sums up the sentiment of the article or the viewpoint of the author. It may include some tell tale items such as "So" or "As we have seen" or "...therefore..." or "the fact that".
