Writer's Goal

ACTEN-NEJNIT

Dealt a Bad Hand

Created for Albert.io. September 2014

Suppose the writer's primary purpose had been to write an essay discussing the moral and ethical consequences of gambling, and its effects on family life.

Would this essay successfully accomplish this goal?

A

Yes, because a single case study is often revelatory in an essay about a moral or ethical problem.

B

Yes, because the moral and ethical consequences of gambling, and the attendant damage to the finances and relationships in a family are adequately discussed in this informal essay.

C

No, because this essay concentrates too much on the ethical consequences of gambling to fulfill this part of the writer's goal.

D

No, because this essay is too focused on the financial trials of one young person and her mother, and does not directly address the moral or ethical consequences of gambling.
