When the topic sentence is last it is called a inverted triangle. The point being the topic, and the base being anything backing up the topic.

Generally the topic sentence is the first sentence of the paragraph and the rest of the paragraph explains or gives examples of the topic sentence. The topic sentence can also be the second sentence of the paragraph. This is when the first sentence is a linking sentence that links the paragraph to the previous paragraph. Sometimes the topic sentence can be the last sentence in the paragraph

No, and inverted triangle paragraph starts with the topic sentence. A triangle paragraph starts with the least important phrase and ends with the topic sentence.

The topic sentence always expresses the main idea of a paragraph (1st 2nd 3rd etc).Usually the topic sentence is the first sentence of the paragraph. Sometimes the topic sentence is the second sentence ( the first sentence links to the previous paragraph ). Possibly the topic sentence is the last sentence of a paragraph.But usually the first is the topic sentence and the other sentences in the paragraph explain or give examples of the topic sentence.

the first sentence of the paragraph is called the topic sentence which should describe most of the paragraph for the reader to understand. The topic sentence is usually the first sentence of a paragraph. It makes a statement (about a topic) and the rest of the paragraph explains the topic sentence or gives examples of the topic sentence. The second sentence of a paragraph can sometimes be the topic sentence. Sometimes it is called a summary sentence.

Most paragraphs have a topic sentence, which is either the first or the last sentence. The other sentences in the paragraph support the idea of the topic sentence.

Topic sentences are usually the first sentence of a paragraph. But they can be the second sentence in the paragraph - if the first sentence is a linking sentence linking the previous paragraph. Sometimes the topic sentence is at the end of the paragraph.

At the beginning or the end. Usually it is the first sentence. But it can be the second sentence especially when the first sentence is a sentence that links to the previous paragraph. Or it can be the last sentence

The sentence in a paragraph that summarizes what that paragraph is about

You should state your topic for each sentence. I like to call it a topic paragraph because you spend the first paragraph talking about your topic.

The first sentence usually introduces the topic of the paragraph -- in this case, the essay topic as well. The concluding sentence of the topic paragraph is an excellent place to reinforce the essay's topic in the minds of readers.

Usually the topic sentence is the first sentence in a paragraph. The topic sentence makes a statement about some topic and the rest of the paragraph explains the topic sentence or gives examples of the topic sentence. For example if this was the topic sentence There are three living species of Kiwi all of which inhabit New Zealand. Then this paragraph would probably tell us what the three species are and where they live in NZ.

Every paragraph needs a topic sentence. The topic sentence is usually the first sentence of the paragraph. It gives the reader an idea of what the paragraph is going to be about The supporting sentences need to be about the idea presented in the topic sentence.

The topic sentence is the first sentence in a paragraph. It introduces the main idea of the paragraph. Also It will give a general idea of what the essay will be about.
