Question: 1 / 50

A narrative essay is typically used to:

Present an analytical argument

Provide information about a particular topic

Tell a story

A narrative essay is designed to tell a story, often in a first-person point of view. Option A is incorrect because an analytical argument is a type of persuasive essay that utilizes facts and evidence to support a stance or opinion. Option B also does not accurately describe a narrative essay because it is focused on providing information rather than telling a story. Similarly, option D is incorrect because a literary critique focuses on analyzing and evaluating a piece of literature, rather than telling a story. Therefore, the best option is C because a narrative essay is specifically used to tell a story and engage the reader with personal experiences and emotions.

Critique a literary work
