What is the possible number of sentences in one paragraph?

Hello, I am not sure how many sentences are normal for one paragraph. I am speaking about paragraphs in research papers or essays.

  1. Let’s find out! As it is written in Merriam-Webst dictionary, one paragraph includes one or more than one sentences that are logically connected. One sentence can be enough for some paragraphs especially in fiction or some types of articles.
    But I do not think one sentence is ok for academic work.
    Use more than one (maybe 2-10).

  2. Complex and long sentences can be used in research papers. The task of essay is to prove or demonstrate some phenomenon, so there should be at least several sentences.
    The paragraph should contain such a number of sentences that is enough for the explanation of some idea.

  5. There is no definite number or rule. Use as many sentences as you need to cover the notion of the paragraph.
