Setting Up Complexity in the Thesis

Mr. Pulgarin briefly brought this up, but I wanted to ask: what’s the best way to introduce complexity into the thesis? For example, could you automatically address a counterargument, such as…

“Although X, Y was the most significant factor in…” (Just an example, it could change depending on thinking skill)

In the first body paragraph, I’d talk about X. Then, in the second, I’d talk about Y, and say in that second BP WHY X is more significant. I would polish off my summarizing the counterargument (X) in my conclusion paragraph, but still argue for why my point (Y) is right. Would this be a good way to earn the complexity point? Thanks for the help!

@kyra-j Yes! Counterarguments are a good way to get the complexity point
