Homework Help: Understanding Paragraphs

Posted by ME on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 11:25pm.

Read each of the following paragraph and underline the topic sentence.

Although color is generally the most conspicuous characteristic of a mineral, it is considered a diagnostic property of only a few minerals. Slight impurities in the common mineral quartz, for example, give it a variety of tints including pink, purple, yellow, white, grey, and even black. Other minerals, such as minerals, such as tourmaline, also exhibit a variety of hues, with multiple colors sometimes occurring in the same sample. Thus, the use of colors as a means of mineral identification is often ambiguous and even misleading.

Topic: I put....Although color is generally the most conspicuous characteristic of a mineral, it is considered a diagnostic property of only a few minerals.
