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.

One of the fastest depleting resources is the oil and gas. As the population is increasing continuously, basic needs for fresh water, food, housing and fuel make unprecedented demands on our global and local ecosystems. Additionally there is great demand for more material goods and services. As we strive to increase material wealth, comforts and conveniences, the pressure on biodiversity and natural resources tremendously increase. Overpopulation calls for enormous housing constructions this causes trees falling and jungle cutting thereby causing imbalance of ecology resulting into loss of animal life. In addition, more vehicles are needed that cause environment pollution. And heat emission by automobiles adds to Global Warming.

Because of numerous automobiles and their use, one of the fastest depleting resources is the oil and gas. This is a non-renewable resource that cannot be re-made, re-grown or regenerated in proportion to its consumption. The rate of consumption of oil and gas is much higher than its rate of reformation by nature.

Greater demand of housing and industrialization causes deforestation having an adverse effect on ecology and animal life. The needs for water and power have also skyrocketed. Loss of cattle results into shortage of milk and dairy products. Many farmers employ bullocks in carts and also for cultivating fields. Furthermore horses, donkeys, camels and elephants are employed for transport, running of carriages, lifting and shifting of heavy loads. Similarly sheep is used for production of wool. Chickens and eggs are used as food for humans. Therefore it is important to protect species and live in harmony.

Summarizing, the fastest depleting resource of oil and gas that take millions of years to re-form naturally and cannot be replaced as fast as it is consumed, it is vital to conserve and protect this resource from extinction.

Is it more important to be able to work with a group of people on a team or to work independently? Use reasons and specific examples to support your answer.

I opine, one must be able to work with the group with a good team spirit. Working in isolation is not good.

A person who works in isolation becomes introvert and would not develop or learn new ways and means of working. A person of this type cannot work in a large corporation employing many thousand employees.

Teamwork is the concept of people working together cooperatively, as in a sports team.
Projects require that people work together, so teamwork has become an important concept everywhere. Effective teams are an intermediary goal towards getting good, sustainable results. The essentials of team work are: –

• Listen to other people’s ideas. When people are allowed to freely express their ideas, these initial ideas will produce other ideas.
• Ask questions, interact, and discuss the objectives of the team.
• Treat others with respect and to support their ideas.
• Help one’s coworkers, which is the general theme of teamwork.
• Share with the team to create an environment of teamwork
• All members of the team are encouraged to participate in the team.
• For a team to work effectively it is essential team members acquire communication skills and use effective communication channels between one another e.g. using email, verbal communication, group meetings and so on. This will enable team members or the group to work together and achieve the team’s purpose and common goals.

In conclusion team workers are good listeners and diplomats, talented at smoothing over conflicts and helping parties understand each other without becoming confrontational and they are most successful in the present era. Hence it is most important to be able to work in a group instead of working independently in isolation.

Some people like doing work by hand. Others prefer using machines. Which do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

I prefer to work with machines and not manually. The reason is that world has advanced like anything and all the jobs that were done before a couple of centuries by man are now being done by machines. In order to keep pace with the time one must learn to work with machines and be more productive or else one cannot survive.

Man, through the ages, has undergone innumerable magical changes from time to time. In the ancient times man lived in the jungles in caves and hutments made by wild grass and vegetation. Now men live in beautiful houses with all facilities and amenities of the life. For transportation of self and materials, mankind used animals like horses, camels, donkeys, zebras and bullocks etc. Man used to have carts pulled by those animals and the transport process used to be exorbitantly time consuming, slow and very tiresome. The 20th century made giant leaps towards progress and development on all dimensions.

Now mankind has motor vehicles for his or her own transport and transporting materials.
Even daily domestic chores like washing and laundry are carried out by respective machines.

Furthermore computer application and technology is used in our all day to day activities including business. Computers have been applied in Education, Information, Media, Entertainment, Transport, Health monitoring and treatment, Banking, Buying, Selling, Trading, Communicating with near and dear by electronic mail or chatting; including outer space travel.

In conclusion, once mankind has progressed and advanced so much, now again going back to manual labor does not sound wise and appropriate nor it is rewarding in any way.
