Yup, we all know what descriptive text is but, let me explain it again, descriptive text is a text that say what and how a person or a thing look like. A text that can make you sure about something, it is really an important text isn’t it? Its purpose itself is to Describe and also reveal a particular or an iconic thing in a thing, animal, person or even a place.
You can also say that descriptive text is a text that explain about what people or thing is like, either its/their shapes, numbers, habitats, or even characters.
