Transcript of "Topic Sentence Patterns Compare And Contrast Paragraph"

  1. 1. Topic Sentence Patterns—Compare and Contrast Paragraph The topic sentence introduces the items that will be compared and contrasted in the paragraph. Examples • For someone who is looking for a new car, the German-built BMW 320i and the Japanese Honda Civic offer interesting points of similarity and difference in the areas of length, weight, interior size, and engine capacity. • It is useful to compare and contrast Riyadh and Shagra in regard to population, appearance, commercial activity, and quality of life. • To see how much Saudi Arabia has changed in the last 40 years, it is useful to compare and contrast its modern capital, Riyadh, with the nearby town of Shagra in regard to population, appearance, commercial activity, and quality of life. • Although the Arab News and the Saudi Gazette are similar in some respects, they are different in other respects. • While there will of course be some similarities between the BMW and the Honda Civic, there will also be some major differences.
