more focused would be OWLS. A topic that is similar, but even more focused would be SNOWY OWLS. The opposite problem is when the topic is too NARROW, and you cant find enough information. Look for a similar topic, but one that has more information. A. A topic that is too

narrow might be: The feeding habits of the Garden Snail. B. A broader subject might be: Facts and Information about Snails, Habitat, Anatomy, Reproduction, Feeding and Predators. Topic A will have more information than Topic B because it is BROADER>
