Activity 2 Finding the main point in a sentence
Using your mouse, highlight the main point in each of the following sets of three sentences.
This activity shows that sentences can be made up of parts. If a sentence has only one part, it is usually clear what the main point is. If there are more parts, it may not be so clear what the main point is. The main point might be in one of the parts, or it might be in two or more parts combined. If you are paraphrasing, you may have to decide what the main point is depending on why you are paraphrasing.
