as you can see, there are many sections to a newspaper. they all play an important part, and when they act together, they make a newspaper.
a newspaper is any published paper that purports to report news of some kind of interest to a local community or to s specialized group (like lawyers or stockbrokers).
since no newspaper can survive just on selling its papers, newspapers also carry advertising, usually divided into "showcase" or "display" ads that can take two pages, a whole page, half a page, a quarter of a page, etc., and "classified" ads that are only a few lines each and a lot cheaper than the display ads.
modern newspapers also carry things to entice people who don't care for news, but are interested in entertainment, self-improvement, etc.
to provide some stimulus to people to buy their papers, many also carry "op-ed" columns, opinion pieces written by people who are known and sometimes respected for their opinions.
many local newspapers also carry items like obituaries, foreclosures, bankruptcies, court proceedings, etc., out of a feeling they are "newspapers of record" and have a duty to report this information so members of the community know what is happening in the community.
so, there is no one definition of a newspaper and no standard divisions into sections.
