About this excerpt:

Terse summary

We would agree that the summary is the most important element of the conclusion, but when it is all that is provided it can be too terse or abrupt. Some teachers, or disciplines, prefer a direct no-nonsense approach, while others expect a little more 'craft' than is shown in this excerpt.

There are some other style errors in this excerpt as well. Can you identify them?
