Question: 1 / 20

When should a writer incorporate evidence into an essay?

Before the introduction

Toward the end of the essay

Under each main point

Throughout the entire essay

A This is incorrect because evidence should complement and support the writer's main points, so it should be incorporated throughout the essay rather than just in the beginning. B: This is incorrect because waiting until the end of the essay to incorporate evidence may make the argument seem weak or incomplete. C: This is incorrect because only including evidence under each main point may make the essay feel disjointed and lacking in overall support. D: This is the correct answer because evidence should be woven throughout the essay in order to effectively support and strengthen the argument being made. This allows the writer to build a strong case by continually providing evidence to back up their claims and ideas.
