    Depending on the essay, it could be done.

    Why don't you try ending with an indirect question? I'd be careful about ending an essay with a question- it's not the same as a conclusion. Like Mike, I wouldn't say that it's completely wrong, but I would advise great caution.

    Note my corrections above. Don't put a space after an opening quotation mark and don't put a space before a closing quotation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    There is no need to write a new post to say "Thanks". Simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves us all time.
