determine end of paragraph

0

i have a 8 line paragraph with ends with a colon and there is a list of 6 (complete) sentences after that

can i consider both the 8 lines(before the colon) and the 6 sentences list( after the colon), as a single paragraph ? ( i mean it will be to long paragraph ). since i am supposed to find the longest paragraph in that paper i am not sure how to deal with this paragraph because if i consider it as single paragraph then it is the longest and if do not it is not.

structure is as follow:

paragraph start...

......

.....

.....

......

.....

......up to 8 lines then last sentence :

 

1- complete sentence

2- complete sentence

.

.

.

6- complete sentencei have a 8 line paragraph with ends with a colon and there is a lsit of 6 (complate) sentences after that 

can i consider both the 8lines(befor the colon) and the 6 sentences list( after the colon), as a single pargraph ? ( i mean it will be to long pargraph ). since i am suppoed to find the longest pargraph in that paper i am not sure how to deal with this pargraph becouse if i consider it as single pargraph then it is the longest and if do not it is not.

structure is as follow:

paragrapg start...

......up to 8 lines then last sencetnce :

 

1- complate sentence

2- complate sentence

I will second Lewis's answer.

 

For the readers of this forum, your question could be retitled, "Determine the start and end of my Sentences." None of your sentences start with a capital letter -- they must. Most of your sentences do not end with punctuation, a period, a question mark, an exclamation point, or a colon -- they must. You never capitalize the personal pronoun "I" -- you must. This marks your question difficult to read and understand.

 

While we here want to help, and your teacher wants to teach you, the lack of attention to the basics causes us to work harder. That makes us less inclined to help, and your teacher more likely to give you a bad grade.
