paragraph unity

A good paragraph should have UNITY, which means a focus on a single idea or concept.

A good topic sentence introduces the idea of the paragraphs well. Supporting sentences in the paragraph are focused on one IDEA and do not deviate from this by going on to OTHER IDEAS. Please see the example paragraphs for the task below:
