Q. What is the difference between development and support in writing?

Answer

The Purdue OWL website has a good explanation of paragraph development and support.

Support means staying with your main thesis and also sticking to the main idea in each paragraph.

Development means adding details, facts, and examples to add to the main thesis of the paper.
