    1) Answering in Complete Sentences:
    Rule #1 - start with a capital letter

    Rule #2 - end with a period

    Rule #3 - do not start with "because"

    Rule #4 - do not use pronouns (it, this, that)

    Rule #5 - restate the question as simple as possible.

     

    (**NOTE** Anybody reading your answer MUST be able to figure out what the question is from your answer.)

     

    e.g.#1

    The color of the sky is blue.

    (From this complete sentence we can tell the question was probably, "What color is the sky?")

     

    e.g #2

    The earth rotates on it's axis and revolves around the sun.

     

    (From this complete sentence we can tell the question was something like, "What is the difference between Earth's rotation and Earth's revolution).

     

    Bad example:

    The difference between Earth's rotation and Earth's revolution is that Earth's rotation is when it spins on it's axis and Earth's revolution is when the it revolves around the sun.

     

    Problems...too many "it's" and way too long and clumsy.
