CSS candidates are required to produce essays in accordance with certain expectations ofÂ the paper setter which are mentioned on top of the essay question paper. Essays contained in thisÂ book help you to come up to the expectations of the examiner to get highest possibleÂ marks. ToÂ start with, one of his requirements is âexpositionâ which means that you should try to reveal andÂ discuss maximum relevant aspects of the topic. A half-hearted and sketchy dealing of some of itsÂ imperatives will not serve the purpose. Then comes his demand concerning âargumentationâ i.e.Â whenever you make a point do not forget to establish its identity by to uphold or discard it byÂ genuine and forceful arguments. Further wherever you raise a question or come across aÂ controversial situation do have a few arguments for and against the proposition. While doing soÂ give your own point of view as well. Discuss alternatives with arguments to sift right from theÂ wrong or accept the right and reject the wrong. Next comes âdescriptionâ which implies giving aÂ vivid account of the situation under discussion. It demands presentation of all relevant detailsÂ clearly and convincingly. Description is followed by âNarrationâ which means moving aheadÂ vigorously. Candidates who are short of ideas often indulge in tail-spinning, beating about theÂ bush, or moving in circles just to fill up as many pages of the answer book as possible. NarrativeÂ demands smooth and logical flow of ideas, moving from one thought to the next effortlessly. AÂ stuck up expression results in loss of interest and lands the reader in a state of drudgery.
