A grammar question, I need your advise please. [#permalink] New post 20 Jan 2013, 10:42
in the writing template, intro sentence starts like,

the article discusses the topic of .......

Now, after the topic of..... what kind of sentence should I use ? let's say, for example,

the article discusses the topic of adverse effect of grading system in education.

or

the article discusses the topic of plantation in Africa. is this too general information ? firstly is it correct grammar using after "topic of.."

if you give me some advise or safe grammar use for this template I will be appreciated.
