How do you narrow a topic?
One good way is to use your textbook - if your teacher has assigned a topic in your book, look up that section and see what headings are listed under that general category. Another way is to use online search engines. Search for the broad topic and see what comes up when you do that - you will find websites that give you information similar to what would be in a textbook, and can pick headings and sub-topics that way.

What is the difference between moving a question to a different topic and editing its FAQs?
There is no difference between moving a question to another topic and editing its FAQs. Every question appears in at least one FAQ (i.e. topic section). For example, this question is in the "Questions about WikiAnswers Website" category. This appears in the location bar at the top as "Location: Answers.com > WikiAnswers > Categories > Miscellaneous > Questions about WikiAnswers Website > What is the difference between moving a question to a different topic and editing its FAQs?". If you click the "recategorize" link (if you're not signed in you won't see this) you can move the question to a different topic/FAQ or classify it under more than one such topic. The "recategorize" form has checkboxes to select the appropriate topic(s). It is somewhat confusing that the topic for a question also appears under "Related Categories" in the left-hand column. This is a backwards way of saying the question is located in the "Questions about WikiAnswers Website" FAQ.

Asked in Paragraph Development
How do you write good supporting sentences in a paragraph?
Make sure that they support the topic sentence! One way to check this is to mentally change the topic or main idea into a question - then, just be sure that each sentence in your paragraph answers that question somehow! When you are composing your paragraph, the best way is to make a list of every fact about the topic. Look up information if you need to! Use lots of detail and make the sentences easy to understand. In this way, you can be sure that each of your sentences will support the topic instead of changing the subject. To make your supporting sentences more vivid and interesting, add description and detail. Click on the Related Questions to see how to make "word pictures" when you write.
