6- Try to go for a topic that is a bit mysterious and people want to know about it in detail, if you wonít create an element of mystery then obviously it wonít be able to hold the readers till the end.

7- The most important thing is to confirm the topic from the teachers so that you wont find any future problems. You can also ask them to provide you with a guideline to write argumentative essays as most of the colleges or universities do provide.
