    Default Precis-writing

    Is there any rule for title in precis-writing?
    What I mean is:
    How many words do I use for title? Do I need to underline the title?
    Some say 7 wrods, other,9 words and other,there is no rule for title.
    Thank you very much in advance!

    No. Not if it is simply for an assignment.
