Sentence 1: TOPIC SENTENCE eg Humpty Dumpty is completely at fault for falling off the wall.
Sentence 2: EVIDENCE #1: eg Humpty Dumpty’s lack of responsibility for himself is highlighted by the poor choice of sitting on the wall knowing full we that he is oval shaped.
Sentence 3: EXPLANATION: The fact that Humpty Dumpty is oval shaped would suggest he would be unstable on the wall, it is highly unlikely that he would survive a fall from the height of the wall and that he was perhaps of unsound mind to even be seated on the wall in the first place.
Sentence 4: EVIDENCE #2
If you can give a 3rd example, then do it.
