2 Point out the topic sentence and supporting sentences in the following paragraph.
Manual labor is one of the principal development resources in any industrializing country, as the following examples demonstrate. To begin with, plowing fields, planting and harvesting crops, and raising livestock are all important to development and require people who work with their hands. Secondly, mining natural resources, building roads and bridges, and constructing dams for irrigation and electrical power are also important to development and also require people who know how to use their hands skillfully. Finally, the establishment of efficient transportation and communication systems, essential services in a modernizing economy, relies heavily on a labor force of expert craftsmen who take pride in their manual skills. And of course, the manufacture as well as the maintenance of machines of all kinds demands a large number of trained mechanics and technicians. Clearly, in agriculture and in industry, the progress of a country depends on the busy hands of its working people.
3 Combine the following sentences to make a paragraph with the first one as the topic sentence. You may add some words, phrases or even sentences to make the paragraph smooth and coherent.
(1) Owning a car can be expensive.
(2) First, you have to purchase the car itself.
(3) You get the cheapest car in the showroom. You will end up paying about $6,000.
(4) You don’t have enough money for the car, and you have to finance it.
(5) You have $6 000 only, and you can get a loan from the bank, but with a high interest rate.
(6) Buying the car is just the beginning of your expenses.
(7) You have to buy gasoline. You buy it at over a dollar a gallon.
(8) You drive an average
(9 )You have to spend money for maintenance, such as tune-ups and lubrications
Owning a car can be expensive. First, you have to purchase the car itself. If you get the cheapest new car in the showroom, you will end up paying about $6 000. Before you can drive the car home, you have to finance the car. Unless you have $6 000 incash, you will have to get a loan with high interest rates and pay a monthly note of around $200. Buying the car, however, is just the beginning of your expenses. Next, you have to buy gasoline at over a dollar a gallon. If you drive an average of 100 miles a week and get 35 miles per gallon, you will end up spending $6 to $ 10 a week on gas. That is about $ 40 a month. Add to that the expenses you have for maintenance, such as tune-ups and lubrication, and you have another $35 per month. All of these add up to about $ 300 a month — a big chunk of anyone’s paycheck!
