    To use those techniques, you sentence no doubt will run into a short essay. Perhaps that is the assignment.

    In one sentence??

    Try this: Write a sentence for each of the techniques. Then repost and we'll see what you have.

  • english -

    ok

    question: Isn't it strange that an eighteen years old can cross the border from Ottawa to Quebec and drink legally?

    Shocking statistics: The onlty country that drinking age is strictly nineteen is South Korea.

    One person's experience: I have proof that eighteen years olds use fake identification cards to purchase alcohol.

    Is this what you ment?

    To add to your question: Isn't it strange that a 20-year-old can cross from Ontario to Michigan and not be able to drink?

  • English -

    Now -- please clarify your assignment if you can. Are you supposed to rewrite the sentence in each of those ways? Or are you to rewrite the sentence including all those ways?

    Frankly, I don't think combining all those into one sentence would be very good. You could, however, write them all up and make them one paragraph.

    Give it a try.
