FOr question number 1

it may be helpful for us

Story A
Four aircraft passengers, the pilot and three people travelling in a car were killed when a twin-engined Beechcraft Baron aircraft hit an electric power line and crashed near Nadi airport this week.

Story B
Eight people died when an aircraft crashed near Nadi airport this week.
The pilot and four passengers died when their twin-engined Beechcraft Baron hit a power line. The plane then crashed into a car on a road near the airport, killing three more people.

Notice that, although Story B is 12 words longer than Story A, it is split into three sentences. None of the sentences in Story B is longer than 20 words. Get someone to read both stories out loud to you, and you will quickly see that Story B is easier to understand.

The reason is simple. Story A contains six separate ideas for the reader or listener to understand at one time:

  1. the people in the plane;
  2. the people in the car;
  3. the type of plane;
  4. the cause of the crash;
  5. the location of the crash;
  6. the time of the crash.

Story B, by comparison, has fewer ideas in each sentence. The first sentence has just four simple ideas:

  1. the total number of dead;
  2. a simple description of the type of plane;
  3. where it crashed;
  4. when it crashed.

The second sentence tells us:

  1. how many died in the plane;
  2. the exact type of plane;
  3. the exact cause of the crash.

The third sentence tells us:

  1. how the people in the car died;
  2. where the car was;
  3. how many died in the car.

You may argue that Story B, as well as being longer, gives a total of ten ideas to understand. However, many of those ideas are not separate. They relate to details in the preceding sentence. Linking ideas and repeating details often helps understanding. More important, those ten ideas are not thrown at our audience in one breath. The full stop at the end of each sentence (which comes as a pause on radio and television) allows the reader or listener time to digest one set of facts before moving on to new details.

We recommend that you try to limit each sentence to no more than three separate ideas. You can occasionally use four ideas per sentence, as long as those ideas are not complicated. We fitted four ideas into the intro of Story B above because two of the ideas - the time and place - are very simple and easy for the reader to understand.

Look back at the example of the Fiji cyclone in Chapter 6 to see how we changed an even bigger mass of confusing detail into easily digestible sentences.
