Many parts of the world are losing important natural resources, such as forests, animals, or clean water. Choose one resource that is disappearing and explain why it needs to be saved. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

Population is dramatically rising day and on. This rise in population gives rise to higher demand of every thing; like food, water, housing, industries, and business avenues. As a result, world over, natural resources like land, water, forests and livestock etc are depleting very fast.

Higher demand of housing and industrialization is aggravating depletion of land and clean water. Power generation consumes gigantic volume of water. However power is the most essential for human progress and development. Secondly because of increased housing and industrialization we lose huge area of agricultural land thereby causing reduction in crop produce and food crises. Extensive housing, greater industrialization, construction of roads, bridges and massive airports etc do not only result into depletion of land and water resource but also give rise to high degree of pollution; heat generation and global warming that is most alarming. Furthermore increased extensive use of automobiles; in addition to pollution and global warming; give rise to environment pollution and depletion of oil and gas resource. Oil is one of the precious natural resource; well known as “Black Gold”.

The resource that is disappearing is the animal resource. Because of deforestation, species lose their habitat and may die. Those animals some times migrate toward towns and are killed by human beings. Sometimes very large vessels carrying crude oil via sea may leak thereby polluting sea water resulting into killing of fishes, crocodiles, turtles, dolphins, and other under water species. Improper waste disposal or effluent also can cause water pollution thereby harming under water creatures. Animals are used for cultivating, poultry, and milk production and material handling and transport.

Summarizing, animal resource is the one that is disappearing. This needs attention and human consideration.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Attending a live performance (for example, a play, concert, or sporting event) is more enjoyable than watching the same event on television. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

I prefer to attend live shows in cases of concerts. This is mainly because concerts are rare and shall not be so soon telecasted. However those may be telecasted only after a long interval of time. But many movies from film industry are repeatedly available on Television and those can be viewed sitting in our comfortable arm chair with push back type high back seat. The main advantage and pleasure of attending a live concert is that you see many celebrities in person giving their performances that is most exciting. Imagine some one watching pictures of his or her darling and on the other hand seeing them in person. The latter one is very much pleasurable obviously.

Secondly you come across very high class, sophisticated and aristocrat gentry. Also you can see the eager and the excitement of the audience that is highly exciting in itself which otherwise one can not enjoy sitting at home and watching TV. One can make and develop new contacts that are beneficial for social life as well as for business.

However a sports event like Wimbledon Tennis, World Cup Cricket or even one day international matches it is not possible for every one to get entry there and watch personally. However if one has enough time and money he or she can watch. But very busy business class people can watch those events on television.

In conclusion, watching concerts and sports live and on television have their own merits.
Depending upon viewers’ type of business, availability of time etc one can either attend live program or watch it on television. I don’t see any demerits in any mode irrespective of witnessing it live or watching it on television.

Some people prefer to live in a small town. Others prefer to live in a big city. Which place you would prefer to live in? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.

I would prefer to live in a small town instead of a big city. In this essay I shall discuss advantages of living in a small town.

Big cities are over populated and overcrowded. Because of this there are a huge number of buildings, automobiles, air conditioners and various other infrastructure facilities. This turns a big city into a concrete jungle with enormous pollution and heat generation thereby creating and enhancing global warming.

Secondly excessive traffic results into accidents thus causing injuries to the people. Such injuries may result into partial disability, or permanent partial disability or total disablement. Some times such accidents are fatal resulting into deaths of people. However in small towns and country side villages’ possibilities of this danger can be more or less ruled out.

In small towns or countryside villages, thick population, localization of industries and offices is absent thereby environment is pollution free and healthy that is a basic requirement and paramount importance for a healthy living. Secondly farming and agriculture is the major industry in villages hence there is enormous greenery and ample of trees are there which give pure Oxygen to breathe. Secondly Cattle and Poultry in such a healthy atmosphere develop and grow very nicely. Also the milk and eggs, meat etc are pure and fee from contamination.

However in small towns’ job opportunities may be little less as compared to a city hence younger generation may prefer to live in city for a better earning and career prospects.

In nutshell, taking into account the merits of staying in a small town or a countryside village, I would prefer to stay in a small town or countryside village for a healthy and peaceful living.

Is the ability to read and write more important today than in the past? Why or why not? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Literacy is the mother of education and that is “Most Important” today. Undisputedly everyone should learn and master the written language. Unless we are literate, we can not access the information needed today. Unlike olden age, in this era, requirement is not only to read the odd signposts on the roads. Now we are expected to absorb the full quantum of written and pictorial information that the Internet provides. We need considerably higher order of skills.

For example while at home we are most of the time with our television set, the visual media. Hence we need to be aware of all forms of media. We need to perceive, and manipulate precisely and correctly as to what is the message and how things work. Media presents huge amount of information especially the internet. Given this mass of information we need to have the skills necessary to understand and precisely pick through it. However, we must not only limit ourselves to see the impact part of the computer or the calculator that speedup and simplify the process but we must know how best to use them optimally. If these technologies are sensitively and intelligently used, they have the potential to influence and enhance our self development process and brighten our future.

We must develop genuinely new skills, required to use computers and navigate the web. Otherwise it is impossible to participate in society and keep pace with the time.

In summary, the Internet is the herald of the new era of access, enlightenment and freedom of information. Unlike early age simply our ability to read and write is not enough now we must be educated enough to keep pace with the time and succeed.
