*In report writing, you must be as objective as possible. Do not approach the task with a lot of preconceived bias.

For example: "I am going to prove that smoking is dangerous to your health." It is better to begin with a question in mind and then do the research to find answers to your question. For example: "Is smoking really dangerous to your health?"

Write the report as if you were an "outsider."
