“Who are Smarter- Boys or Girls?”
It is a quote. And I think he/she used it to trigger the readers attention and I like this kind of technique.
Well, if it's a quote, it'd be best to modify it--otherwise it serves only to weaken the argument that boys are stronger at grammar than girls
Well, it is conspicuous that girls are better than boys are at grammar. I know girls they are excellent language –learners, at least the girls I have met. If they are not, why girls speak before boys then?
What you mean to say is that males are stronger and have more endurance than females.
I MEAN THAT MALES HAVE MORE PHSYCAL ENDURANCE THAN FEMALES.
The terms 'male' and 'female' would be best given that 'boys' rarely build houses. Speaking of physical endurance, it's a known scientific fact that females are more likely to survive the cold temperature of the sea when shipwrecked. In terms of physical attributes, males lack the body fat required to sustain such cold temperatures. I'd add in giving birth, but all things considered, the male body is not made to endure that physical feat. But, mind you, leaving that bit out kind of makes your argument one-sided. That is, you seem to be comparing women to men rather than comparing women and men.
This is another piece of information that I can add to my essay later simply because females have certain points of strengths and males have that too. I think that characteristic is given to women by God to be able to bear the pains and suffering of giving birth.
However, and to be neutral I don’t like to dig deep into science and say that there is certain hormone in the males that encourage them to seek out powerful positions in the political and social arenas . I ruled that out simply because I did not want to be biased with either party. It is well known that the majority of political positions are occupied with males in countries that even give opportunity for women to seek political positions. A certain study showed that in females a certain hormone that deters females from acquiring a high position in any hemisphere. If I were asked what was that hormone I would really admit that it is called serotonin.
What I meant is that they will learn a lot because they will witness and experience things that the females do have the opportunity to learn. Consequently, if we get an experienced male and an inexperienced female ( as it is common in my country ) to build a house who do you think will be able to perform better ?
Well now, that's why the argument is dubious. Culture plays a major part here. Men and women are capable of different roles in other countries.
That ‘s right that what was driving at. My audience, LET’S SAY Ronbee is not the kind of audience I was writing to .I was writing to somebody who shares the same background.
What research? What nerve? Is that "nerve theory" consistent with what is known about brain anatomy?
Well, I have read this in an article titled “Scientists Probe the Roots of Abilities That Seem Linked t Sex“ and many scientists believe this to be true.
The problem is not what the scientists believe; the problem is that the readers have not read the article and so they have no idea what 'nerve theory' is about or how it strengthens your argument.
This is another problem of my audience .I was supposed to write to someone who is well aware of this research i.e. my prof .
