The author is trying to inform us because the video showed us that there are 5 reasons to write a passage:inform,entertain,persuade,describe,and to narrate.it told us what each one means and to inform is to tell information,or facts about the passage.i thought there were only three!
The author is informing us on the different purposes of writing a passage. There are 5 reasons: inform, persuade, narrate, describe, and entertain.
The author is informing us on the 5 different types of purposes: Narrate, Describe, Inform, Entertain, and Persuade. Clues that helped me to figure it out were it said, "Inform means to give you facts, real facts, To persuade is to try to make you or make you do something, to describe is to create a pic, to entertain is to amuse, tell a joke, or make someone laugh, and to narrate is to tell a sequence of events, tell a story. Some more clues were it showed you example of each like to make someone laugh (entertain), He got a bright red convertable (describe), to tell the facts (inform), vote for me for president (persuade), a Harry Potter Book (narrate or tell a story.)
I meant what it is sorry!

I know Areeba you are right...
There are 5 things that an author does in a book. To inform, persuade, narrate, entertain, and describe.
travis,you didn't give the answer to her question.
For this video I think the author wanted to inform us. A clue that told me that is that he or she gave facts about the 5 purposes an author might have for writing. I also think the author wanted to entertain us. A clue that he or she wanted to entertain us was that the information was put in a song so we would enjoy learning about author's purposes. Clues about author's purposes in other writing could be: Inform - giving facts, Pursuade - using strong words, Entertain - funny ideas to make us laugh, Narrate - we would hear ideas about how the story was happening, and Describe - giving lots of adjectives so we can picture what is going on as we read.
