Compare/Contrast

I have to write an essay comparing and contrasting any two things.

I need some suggestions.

apples and oranges
war and peace
heaven and hell
life and death
free will and no choice
cake or pie
meat or fish
beer or wine
man and woman
serious and funny
mom and dad

Those are all good, I was thinking something not so broad. My instructor used apples and oranges as an example, haha.

Food & soil.

Eh? Eh?:thumbup

matter/anti-mater

dumb/dumber

I got an essay like that to write once. I wrote about a dilapidated house which was surrounded by flowers and green grass.

I will get back to you on this one.

Swallow or…:eek :smiley:

Analog v. digital TV signal quality.

You can write about shoes that you women like so much. Like pumps… High heels make you feel attractive, hot, eye grabbing, stand out in the crowd and the low heels make you feel just normal and comfortable…:jk

there are variety of things you could write about: cars (Benz vs Honda), fast food restaurants, modern days vs now. You know how our parents always say, “you have it lucky, back then we have to write letters ink and feathers, and it would take weeks to reach the recipient but now you can send a email which would take a sec.”

There are a lot of things you can think about. Just pick the one that is more suitable.
