For the Analyze an Issue essay, you need to discuss how much you agree or disagree with the issue statement. Remember that there is no &ldquo right&rdquo or &ldquo wrong&rdquo response.

Avoid using examples that are too broad or lists of examples with no supporting detail.

Thus it follows that the so-called Palean baskets were not uniquely Palean.
