Which common mode of writing is most characterized by the author’s assumption that certain things are facts or truths?
A primary characteristic of informative or explanatory writing is that the author assumes certain things to be factual or true. From these assumptions, the author proceeds to inform readers, explain things to them, and offer them insights. Descriptive writing uses multiple sensory details to paint a picture for readers so they can feel they are experiencing what is described. Persuasive writing endeavors to convince readers something is true rather than assuming it is. Narrative writing relates a story or stories to readers.
