A lot of people don't have wills. Everyone needs a will, but not all people have one. Wills are important because they explain who gets your stuff after you. You don't want your things going to someone you don't want them to go to. My Aunt Martha went to a lawyer to get a will, I did my will online. My dad died in 1988. He didn't have a will. His stuff went to my step mom, who I don't get along with. If he would have had a will, I might have been able to start college sooner. But my dad didn't have a will. A will is good and you need to get one. Do you have a will?
Write a brief paragraph of about 150 words in which you do the following:
(1) Identify which paragraph was more effective and analyze why this is so.
(2) Include a discussion of sentence variety and the rhythm of the author's writing.
(3) focus on the writing rather than the opinions presented.
(4) Underline your topic.

(1) There is only one paragraph in the brief statement about wills. Since there is only one, that is the most effective paragraph.
If the original "essay" had more than one paragraph, you should have typed it that way.
They are asking you to write a paragraph of your own about the statement about wills. It has a conversational style with personal anecdotes. The desirability of having a will illustrated by personal experience.
You need to write your own paragraph.
(4) I don't see the virtue of underlining the topic in the body of whatever you write. Why not just have a title heading?
