Article Writing

When you're discussing numerous causes for an effect, you want to know about the kinds of causes you're analyzing. The causes could be unrelated to one another, but all are associated with the effect. These kinds of causes are often called variables; they aren't causally related to one another, but they do work to add to the result. When discussing such causes, as in the case of obesity case, organize the paragraphs (triggers) according to your preference.

However, the most common principles are sequence of familiarity (evident to less obvious) and order of interest (less intriguing to more interesting). Both of these principles are helpful when the causes are of equal importance. Don't forget to identify the most significant cause are the most significant cause as the most important.

Causes aren't always unrelated, however. Sometimes a cause couldn't have caused a result unless certain conditions occur. In cases like this, the causes are associated with one another. However, it's generally believed that this incident alone wouldn't have trigger the war if certain additional conditions hadn't existed in Europe at the time: economic rivalries, heightened nationalism, imperialism etc.

In this sort of empirical analysis, the causes which directly precede the impact are known as immediate causes (sometimes also called direct causes) and these triggers are further removed in time from the effect are known as remote causes (sometimes indirect triggers). In the event of World War (the instant cause was that the assassination, but the distant causes were the conditions mentioned before, such as heightened nationalism.

As an example, you may blame the overcrowded conditions in the public schools on overpopulation and over population on the failure of this authorities to promote birth control (remote), but a reasonable explanation may be on the collapse of the regional officials to provide adequate educational facilities (immediate).

When you're analyzing causes that aren't of equal importance or which are immediate and eliminate, it's generally a great idea to arrange the paragraphs starting with the instant and proceeding to the distant, or in the less important to the main.
