Answer by  jhart (64)

Expository writing is instructional and informational text, designed to teach or explain a subject to the reader. This writing style is logical and step-by-step. Examples include recipes, 'how to' instruction booklets, and driving directions. The writer's opinions never appear in expository works – only facts.

This type of writing is any that is informing or explaining or describing something to the reader. It is the most common type of writing used by students in college or high school. You, as the writer, are giving some information to the reader. So, a good example would be directions.

Expository writing is nonfiction writing whose main purpose is to impart information to its readers. People writing this way assume that their readers have no prior information about a topic, so it is their duty to inform them about all of the information. Clarity is really important when writing in this style.
