Paragraph 2: The topic sentence should identify the second effect related to the specific area you chose to write your essay on. Show the link between the cause and the effect. Supporting sentences should explain and discuss this effect and provide evidence from your research to support your views.
Paragraph 3: The topic sentence should identify the third effect related to the specific area you chose to write your essay on. Show the link between the cause and the effect. Supporting sentences should explain and discuss this effect and provide evidence from your research to support your views.
