Nights and Dragons— From the memoir of author Abigail Prynne I could have given up, but I thought about my grandmother. She always told me that "people who believe that science is the answer to everything are missing out on everything else." With her words in mind, I searched some more. There were many facts that hinted that dragons may not be fictional. I noticed that cultures across the world all described dragons in similar ways. This was odd because they had no way to communicate with each other. I found dragons mentioned in more than just stories. They appeared in old legal papers, in the travel logs of Marco Polo, and in the Bible. I saw that the Chinese calendar uses a different animal each year. Dragons are included along with eleven real animals. I began to believe it was a real possibility that all of these people were talking about a creature that actually existed. List three details from the text that support the main idea.

those are the three details?
The main idea of a text is not always directly stated is always stated in the first paragraph usually appears in the conclusion is found in the body of the text
A it is not always directly stated
To help clarify the main idea, important words may be highlighted with the use of captions images sidebars bold print
In an article about the benefits of playing video games, what information might be included in a sidebar to best support the main idea? A chart showing rising costs of video games over the past 10 years A list of the most popular video games in the United States Facts from a study showing how video games improve coordination Images of smiling students playing video games
C Facts from a study showing how video games improve coordination
are you sure the other question is bold prints and not sidebars?
yes because the last one specifically says article, for the one with bold, you would not include pics in an essay usually
Nights and Dragons— From the memoir of author Abigail Prynne As I started my research, I discovered many skeptics. Scientists presented evidence to show why dragons could not—and did not—exist. They explained that it would be impossible for dragons to fly because they would be too big. They laughed at the idea of dragons breathing fire. They pointed out that no other animal has ever done this. They said that if dragons had lived, someone would have found remains somewhere in the world. No bones about it, there were plenty of logical explanations. It would have been easy for me to accept that the only place dragons ever existed was in the imaginations of those who believed. What is the main idea of text? Scientists have lots of evidence to explain why dragons don't exist. Scientists say it would be impossible for dragons to fly because they would be too big. They laughed at the idea of dragons breathing fire. They said that if dragons had lived, someone would have found remains somewhere in the world.
