    Unformatted Sample Text from the Research Paper:
    studied is the environmental impact of the overcrowding of highways, expressways, and other roads on the island. This information will lead to investigating solutions to reduce the negative impact on  the environment. Alternatives would be developed that would include costs of constructing and maintaining an infrastructure that would be environmentally-friendly. 2. What is your working title?
