    title

    Dear teachers,


    1. What novels do readers like
    ---- On the styles of writing
    2. What novels do readers like?
    -----On the styles of writing

    I have no idea if I should use a question mark in the title of a paper. Could you please tell me which of the following is correct?


    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Re: title

    I'd say something like 'What styles of writing do readers like in novels?'

    Dear tdol,

    I'll change the title as you suggested.
    Could you please kindly tell me if I do need a subtitle, which is the correct way to write it?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    There aren't any hard and fast rules. You could do these:

    Writing Styles
    What novels do readers pefer?

    What novels do readers prefer?
    Writing Styles
