Example/Non Example

 yes because you don't know what's gonna be in the void.
Which color is the most fluorescent at night? Why?
red because it is a bright colour.
Why are elderly people more vulnerable than children? Why?
because they can't run or defend themselves from others.
Which is more interconnected; a vine or a dandelion? Why?
Vine because it is grass connected together.
Which is more seldom; the Olympics or an election in NZ? Why?
Olympics because it's every 4 years and a NZ election is 3 years.

Extended Writing
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
On Saturday before my team's game we watched another game because we got there early, then we saw a guy no looked and kick the ball and the ball hit the crosshairs without looking and that happens seldom.
