A Sample Student Paragraph: Evaluation
The Transmission, Prevention and Treatment of the Common Cold

Common cold is a type of illness which is caused by viruses. They are transmitted by being in contact with someone who has it or touching the surfaces which are used by everyone. Because the cold is a result of viruses, it cannot be treated by antibiotics, which have effects on only bacteria. Taking aspirins or other medicine may only treat high temperature or aches. According to many doctors, the best way to prevent these viruses is to wash hands regularly. Moreover, taking some vitamins may contribute to the improvement of the immune system.

Common cold is an illness which is caused by viruses. There are 220 different cold viruses and these spread into cummunity by sneezing, caughing, breating and touching. For example, door handle is home for these viruses. Secondly, this illness is caught by people more in winter because in this season people are inside more. As a result of this, they are in closer contact with other people. Finally, if people want to reduce the risk of getting a cold, hands should be washed often, other people’s stuff should not be used and people should be careful when they want to touch someone or something.
