ighgvParagraphs are the building blocks of papers. Many students define paragraphs in terms of length: a paragraph is a group of at least five sentences, a paragraph is half a page long, etc. In reality, though, the unity and coherence of ideas among sentences is what constitutes a paragraph. A paragraph is defined as "a group of sentences or a single sentence that forms a unit" (Lunsford and Connors 116). Length and appearance do not determine whether a section in a paper is a paragraph. For instance, in some styles of writing, particularly journalistic styles, a paragraph can be just one sentence long. Ultimately, a paragraph

If you write by hand, then do two finger spaces. If you are doing it on a computer, then just press the tab button, which is set to the default of 5 spaces. If you prefer, use the space bar and tap it 5 times. Just hitting tab usually works, provided that a) you have a tab key (and who doesn't? Even old typewriters have tab keys), and b) it is set for the proper spacing as the default setting. It is rare to ever need to change the default setting. These days 1/2 inch is considered proper (about 5 spaces using 12 point Courier, but it will vary with other fonts and sizes). Somewhere in your Word Processing program, in your Formatting and paragraph settings, you'll be able to set the tab stops. Just set it to 0.5" and you're set!
The question isn't whether you can put favourably in a sentence but whether you can. Hope that helps.
Yes. Which one is used depends on whether the subject of the sentence is singular or plural. If, when used as a conjunction, is never the subject of the sentence. The only time it can be is when the sentence is talking about the word if. A simple example is the sentence "if is a conjunction." A more complex example is the first sentence of this paragraph. In both these sentences the verb is singular because we are talking about a single if. In the sentence "too many 'ifs' can spoil a debate" spoil is plural because there are a number of ifs. The preceding paragraph may be a bit of a head-banger, but the good news is that it's maybe only once per million sentences that if is used as anything but a conjunction.
