Persuasive essay, also known as the
argument essay, utilizes logic and reason to
show that one idea is more legitimate
than another idea. It attempts
to persuade a reader to adopt a certain point of view or to
take a particular action. The argument must always
use sound reasoning and solid evidence
by stating facts, giving logical reasons, using examples,
and quoting experts.
Expository essay requires that the
writer give information,
explain the topic or define something. To accomplish
that, they are best developed by the
use of facts and statistical information, cause and effect
relationships, or examples.
Since they are factual, they are written without emotion and
usually written in the third person. That means that the use
of the pronoun "I" is not usually found within the essay.
