What is the topic sentence in the following paragraph? I believe that paragraph one was a very effective paragraph. It touches a few very interesting points about why someone should create a Living Will. This is especially important to me because of the way that my family has handled our loved ones personal things after they have passed away. I personally think that the writer could have smoothed their sentences out more. In my opinion, this particular paragraph is a bit choppy and all over the place

    I don't see a topic sentence. At first glance, it would appear that the first sentence is the topic sentence. However, the last two sentences negate the statement that the paragraph is "very effective."

  • English -

    Apparently you didn't read your assigned article. A living will has nothing to do with the disposal of goods after a person has died. A living will is used to inform family and medical personnel about a person's wishes prior to death.
