“A statement that appears near the beginning of a paper, and it offers a concise solution to the issue being addressed. It states the claim of the argument presented in a paper. A thesis statement is usually one sentence, though it may occur as more than one.”
Good examples of thesis statements:
“Oedipus Tyrannus conveys the powerful concept that humans do not control their own destiny and no matter what heights they achieve, they cannot escape the will of the Gods.”
“Because the internet is filled with tremendous marketing potential, companies should exploit this potential by using web pages that offer both advertising and customer support.”
Bad examples of thesis statements:
“The novel Night was a powerful book with many examples of cruelty.”
“There are some negative and positive aspects to the Banana Herb Tea Supplement.”
In other words….a thesis is your argument--it is what the whole essay is proving to be true.
2- It analyses a particular topic and provides evidence.
