Q. Do I begin my answers to questions on second page of an APA formatted paper?


Yes, start the questions and answers on the page after the title page.

When Instructors want answers "in APA format" it means use the basic structure of crafting an APA paper.  

So, format using APA standards:

  • 1-inch margins on all sides
  • Font size - 12 point
  • Font - Times New Roman style
  • Double-spaced
  • A Title page
  • A References page (when appropriate) in APA style.

Because it is not a research paper, an Abstract is not necessary.

Visit the APA Help guide for examples.
