QUESTION
what does should be of mean in this context. reply asap please?
“The essay should be of 2000 words in length.”

Does that mean maximum (no more than 2000) or minimum (no less than 200) or around 2000 (can be a bit less or a bit more than 2000, but not too much more).

If it means minimum how do i make an essay that long, so far i have 500 words is that enough?

ANSWER
It means aim for around the 2000 word level it can be slightly more of slightly less – they aren’t going to check through counting every word but it’s set so that the get depth in the writing 500 words hasn’t quite got the detail in the content which they probibally are after try using more connectives (so, because, however ect.) or more descriptive language (rather than blue – pale blue) or try quoting large sections (rather than just ’I have seen her rise from her bed, throw her nightgown upon her,’ – ’I have seen her rise from her bed, throw her nightgown upon her, unlock her closet, take forth paper, fold it, write upon’t it, read it, afterwards seal it, and again return to bed; yet all this while in a most fast sleep.’
and elaborate on points (using because and therefore to explain things) and just exra word like description has been used **throughout**.
Thats what i do
Hope it helps
