Evaluating an Essay for Unity


The supporting paragraphs in the essay contain four irrelevant sentences that do not relate to the thesis of the paper or support the topic sentences of the paragraphs in which they appear. Read the essay carefully; then write the numbers of the four irrelevant sentences.

Use this essay to answer questions 1-4. Write the numbers of the four irrelevant sentences in the order in which they appear in the essay.

    (1) Many of the dangers of modern life are not out on the highway or in the work place. (2) Instead, dangers lurk where they are least expected: at home. (3) I don’t mean the dangers of faulty wiring, cheap ladders, or leaking microwaves. (4) No, I’ve found that trying to keep a clean house can be very hazardous to my health.
    (5) For one thing, it is dangerous to keep a clean kitchen. (6) The oven, for instance, fights back. (7) Whenever I stick my head into the oven’s greasy interior to spray it with Easy-Off, I end up being choked by a chemical cloud. (8) I am glad I don’t live in the city where I would have to put up with air pollution as well. (9) When I scrape off the foam, I always break my nails on the black, rock-hard globs cemented to the oven door. (10) Cleaning the refrigerator can be dangerous, too. (11) As I lean down to wipe the vegetable drawer, the open freezer lies in wait. (12) It knows I must straighten up again, and that I will inevitably bang my head on the freezer door. (13) Garbage bags also resist tidiness. (14) When I pull a bag out of the kitchen waste bin, I must be careful because a jagged can lid might slice through the bag, ready to slash my legs. (15) The only bags that don’t rip open, it seems, are the ones that cost a fortune to buy.
    (16) The living room becomes another danger zone when I attempt to clean. (17) The light fixtures on the ceiling, for example, resent being taken down for cleaning. (18) They refuse to come loose from the screws that anchor them; then they drop like rocks to the floor. (19) Moving furniture to vacuum the rug underneath causes trouble, too. (20) If I drag a heavy armchair across the rug, one of its legs will snap off and give me a splinter. (21) If I try to lift one side of a heavy sofa, the vacuum cord will wrap around my ankle and trip me. (22) Moving furniture in general is a lot easier to do when you have someone to help you.
    (23) Finally, the most dangerous room to clean is the bathroom. (24) The bathtub will seek revenge if I try to clean it, for instance. (25) It will because it is so slippery that even a rubber bathmat will not stay put. (26) My particular bathtub is a hideous purple color and is unpleasant to look at whether it is clean or not. (27) The bathroom floor, too, enjoys a layer of dirt; a clean, waxed floor will attract any stray drops of water in the room in order to turn itself into a slippery skating rink. (28) A job that always leads to danger is cleaning out the medicine cabinet over the sink. (29) No matter how careful I am, glass bottles have a way of spilling from the shelves and shattering in the sink. (30) And finding all the missing slivers is impossible no matter how well I clean up. (31) Later, as I pad into the bathroom, a glass splinter will dig itself into my foot.
    (32) After the experiences I have had in my house, I have decided that keeping a clean house is not as important as I thought. (33) I would rather live with the dust and grime—and stay healthy.
