    They will make a statement and tell you to say whether you agree or disagree, and to give your reasons for agreeing or disagreeing. Those reasons are called your "argument". You "argue" for or against a proposition (the statement).
    In the introduction, you should say whether you agree or disagree. In the body of the essay, give your reasons, with some examples or illustrations from your experience. In the conclusion, again state your opinion, and finish with something like "I have given several major reasons, with examples, of why I agree/disagree with the statement.".
