There were several new discoveries in the field of Science and Technology? Identify any one
as your topic of research.[Guidelines there were around 12 types of new advancement. For

Write the article as per given guidelines:

Type your paper on a computer and print it out on standard, white 8.5 x 11-inch paper.

Double-space the text of your paper, and use a legible font (e.g. Times New Roman). Whatever font you
choose, MLA recommends that the regular and italics type styles contrast enough that they are recognizable
one from another. The font size should be 12 pt.

Leave only one space after periods or other punctuation marks (unless otherwise instructed by your
instructor).

Set the margins of your document to 1 inch on all sides.

Indent the first line of paragraphs one half-inch from the left margin. MLA recommends that you use the
Tab key as opposed to pushing the Space Bar five times.

Create a header that numbers all pages consecutively in the upper right-hand corner, one-half inch from the
top and flush with the right margin. (Note: Your instructor may ask that you omit the number on your first
page. Always follow your instructor's guidelines.)

Use italics throughout your essay for the titles of longer works and, only when absolutely necessary,
providing emphasis.

If you have any endnotes, include them on a separate page before your Works Cited page. Entitle the
section Notes (centered, unformatted).
