consider the following questions.
1)what is the persuasive aim of the document
2)how the document targets the audience.
3)where did the text appear and how is it significant?
4)why is the text arranged as it is.
5)how are logos and pathos deployed to persuade?
6)how does ethos function in the text?
Please help. you shall have my trust and accolade.
I'd choose one of the umpteen ads for prescription drugs, the sappier the better! They include all the things in your list.
