Hi ramana,

I'll second lagomez's response. It doesn't matter WHAT position you take, as long as you take a clear position on the issue at hand.

Good luck!

Score is given based on your ability to analyze the argument and present flaws in it. Does not matter which position you take so long as you can defend it well. Read the examples given in OG and also what a good essay should have
