I have several questions on writing AWA. Please advice if you happen to know these for sure. Thanks!
1. When I refer to what stated in the given or original claim, what is the correct verb tense or it doesn't matter? Say, should I write "The author mentionED that...." or "The author mentionS that..."
My prefernece: The author mentions that
2. In Argument AWA, is it a matter to identify the MAJOR logical flaw or miss it? Or as long as my writing is clear and in a structral way I can still get a score 6?
Check out the OG to get a clear idea on what an essay should have to be rated a certain score.
3. In Argument AWA, somehow I noticed that one weakness in the reasoning actually can be categorized into several logical flaws. I don't know how to illustrate this one clearly in a simple language. In the case you had similar experience, do you think it is OK if I refer to this one single piece from different aspects of flaws?
try to find different flaws in the argument. one point may have several flaws but use that approach only when you are out of ideas or in a hurry
