  1. Introduction
  2. Body
  3. Conclusion

Introduction Section:

The introduction is used to grab the readers’ attention and introduce the main idea or What you are going achieve after reading.

The Body Section:

The body consists of several supporting paragraphs that help to elaborate explain the main idea.

Conclusion:

Finally, the conclusion serves to wrap up the argument and re-emphasize the writer’s main ideas.
