How many sentences are in a brief paragraphy?
It depends on how much you have to say about the subject.
But roughly it would be about 10 sentences ,max!
1. Please keep your contributions brief as many people want to speak. 2. Be polite but keep it brief/ Remember that the phone's a thief. 3. James did a brief report on Albert Einstein. I would like to keep this meeting as brief as possible. (Please notice that the 'i' goes before the 'e' in "brief".) Our rendezvous was all too brief.
Essays are not confined to "lines" such as is poetry. Here's a brief framework though: An essay is generally considered to be a minimum of five paragraphs, and five sentences per paragraph. That makes a minimum of twenty-five sentences. keep in mind this is a jumping off point and a general framework. What you do with it is your own style, your voice.
