Question for the experts

    In the AWA section can we quote hypothetical examples or can we only quote real world examples.

    For e.g. in case I am quoting an automobile industry example can I say Motor company Helion's Rayon car ....... (both Helion and Rayon are not real) or I need to quote actual car company and model for eg. Ford Fiesta to make my point?

    Any clarification is appreciated.

    Now-a-days the only assessment done is done though e-rater. So really does not matter if you use real or surreal examples.

    I always recommend real world examples; it's always more convincing to have something concrete in your essay.

    Also, your essay is graded by one person AND the e-grader, so there is still someone reading them.
