Please explain to me the ff:
1. Main idea that is directly stated in the fisrt sentence.
2. Main idea that is stated in the last sentence.
3. Main idea that is stated in part of one sentence.
4. Where two sentences are used to express main idea.
5. Main idea wherein it must be found within the body of the paragraph.
6. Main idea where it must be inferred.

These two sites are very good. They both give clear explanations.
