Q: We would like to have all the articles ready by March 1st and publish on the 16th of March. Does this sound natural?
A: Check the question to view the answer
Q: In this article, the writer argues that the Rialto Movie Theater should provide the same features as the Apex in order to hold on to its share of decreasing moviegoers. Although the argument may seem convincing at first, the problem of unanswered questions leads me to conclude that the argument might be flawed on many grounds. The article is based on several assumptions, and to question the assumptions is essential to evaluate the validity of the article.
To begin with, the writer should provide the answer to the question of whether the new Apex Theater has succeeded in the mall outside of town. He assumes that the Apex has succeeded, and thus argues that the Rialto should follow the features of the Apex. However, the unsubstantiated assumption could spoil the argument. It is possible that the Apex actually may fail due to the extraordinary cost for sustaining its features, such as a state-of-the-art sound system. Also, people may not be attracted to those kinds of features. In such a case, the Apex cannot be a good role model, and Rialto must not follow the Apex. That is, the argument would be weakened.
Another question the writer should answer is whether the number of respondents of the survey is a lot enough. He presumes that the number of respondents is a lot enough and based on the presumption, contends that the pool of moviegoers is decreasing. However, the unsubstantiated presumption could ruin the argument. It is plausible that the number of respondents, who says that the high price of newly released movies prevents them from going to the movies, might be marginal. Also, the real number of moviegoers may not change or rather increase. If it is true, the Rialto need not offer the same features as Apex in order to hold on to its share of a decreasing pool of moviegoers. After all, the validity of the article decrease.
Lastly, the writer should answer the question of whether the case of Apex can be applied to the Rialto. He speculates that it can be, and therefore asserts that the Rialto should provide the same features as the Apex. The unsubstantiated speculation, however, could weaken the argument. The Rialto might have totally different inherent conditions with the Apex. For instance, the residents in downtown where the Rialto is placed may not have the preference on a video arcade, plush carpeting and seats, and a state-of-the-art sound system unlike the people outside of the town where the Apex is located. In such an occasion, even if the Rialto follow the Apex, it cannot attract the moviegoers and only to spend a lot of money on the process of being furnished with those features. Eventually, the argument loses the persuasive power
In a nutshell, the article may be unsound on many grounds due to the problem of unanswered questions. To bolster the argument, the writer should provide the answers to the questions mentioned above. Then, the article could improve validity and persuasive power. Does this sound natural?
A: yes it will be no problem to read it just whenever you show me the essay I can read and help you write it! I understand yes writing skills can be very tricky haha! :))
