    • What is expository text?
      • Expository writing is a mode of writing in which the purpose of the author is to inform, explain, describe, or define his or her subject to the reader.

    • Listing
      • Listing (or description) is used to explain the features of an object or event. Biology textbooks list the features of reptiles, giving their body temperature, reproductive habits, eating habits, etc.
