Writing Task

     Passage B:

    Reading Skills

     1,The title is actually a question. By using a question as a title, the

     writer tries to attract the readers' attention. Obviously, it's about the

     possibility or legality of human cloning. The writer will give us a

     thorough analysis as to who might take advantage of human cloning.

     2, The language is formal and serious. Besides, it is emotional. The

     evidence for this is the repeated employment of rhetorical questions.

     3, Altogether, there are seven questions, including the one in the

     title. Of the seven, four are rhetorical questions. They appear

     respectively at the end of Paragraph 2, Paragraph 3, Paragraph 4, and at

     the beginning of Paragraph 6.

     4, Rhetorical questions are mainly intended to stir up the readers'

     emotions, to put them off guard, making them ready to accept the writer's

     opinion. Rhetorically, this is called emotional appeal. By using

     rhetorical questions four times, the writer of this text is appealing to

     the readers to accept the idea "Don't just say no to human cloning". With

     all the above in view, we can see that the text is persuasive.
