Paragraphs are so much important to express individual’s thoughts. In any business you have to express yourself in front of viewers either verbally or in written form. Given below are the types of paragraphs that will definitely help you in your career or business


1.  Unfocused paragraph

An unfocused paragraph is not relating or directed toward one specific thing (such as particular goal or task) or a paragraph which fails to attract the attention of readers.


Mr. sweet was a good companion for the narrator and his sister. Mr. Sweet always made the narrator feel special. Mr. Sweet played with the children just as if he were a child himself. Mr. Sweet also displayed a great deal of respect for the narrator and his family. He was compassionate, caring, and honest.


Why is this an unfocused Paragraph

The reason is that there is no argument at all presented in the paragraph. Instead, the writer has simply written a series of claims with no supporting evidence whatsoever. In other words, there are no facts from the story presented in the paragraph to convince readers that any of the claims are believable.
