Should you spell out or write numbers in English essays when you’re listing examples?





I don't know which is more appropriate for my English essay:There are a few assumptions that one who is viewing this picture can make out of speculation from this: first, they do not know anything about how this man became homeless, assume he is a drug addict and therefore cannot trust him with their money, and/or second, he is a failure who brought all of his misfortunes upon himself. orThere are a few assumptions that one who is viewing this picture can make out of speculation from this: 1) they do not know anything about how this man became homeless, assume he is a drug addict and therefore cannot trust him with their money, and/or 2) he is a failure who brought all of his misfortunes upon himself. Am I supposed to spell out the numbers, (one, two) or write them out, (1,2) when I'm speaking in lists for my English essay? My essay is due tomorrow, I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks!

    Write them out in words, it looks much more professional which would equal a better grade.

    Spelling out the numbers as words sounds significantly more sophisticated, and helps your essay as a whole flow better.If you’re still a bit worried, though, you could always use special conjunction words that denote a list, while allowing for a bit more discussion imbetween.
