40 Funny Compare And Contrast Essay Topics To Consider


When you’re in school, you will be required to write the occasional compare and contrast essay. A compare and contrast essay juxtaposes two subjects, examining both their similarities and their differences. In some cases, such as assignments for English Composition classes, you’ll have a lot of freedom when you choose your topic. The point is the style of essay you’re writing, not the subject matter itself. For these kinds of assignments, you can be as informal as you want when you pick a topic.
