    • IELTS MASTER says:

      Always use the with words like least, highest. If by outlay you mean overall spending then it was higher in 2001 and not in 1991. Please interpret the numbers correctly. For food and housing the expenditure increased by $5 not dropped. You cannot write previous year because the previous year to 2001 is 2000 not 1991. Reduced by ten dollars not ten dollar points. Cannot write conversely here.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      Not spending monthly but the average monthly spending of an Australian family. Use dollars not dollar with numbers because dollar means one dollar. Do not write numbers in bracket we have given this feedback several times before but you seem to miss it every time. Expenditure increased by 40 dollars not with 40 dollar.

    There is no doubt that deforestation is increasing at startling pace across the globe.Since people are cutting down trees, the day is not far when the earth will become a boiling pot.While some people advocate that it is individuals liability to save environment,others believe that it should be saved by government and industries.

    To commence with,individulas have responsibility towards environment.If people do not improve environment,it will certainly arduous for them to survive on the earth after few years. Furthermore,individuals should use more public transport rather than personal vehicles because some resources are nonrenewable and fuels engender carbon dioxide in the air which makes air pollution.Secondly, trees are a precious gift for everyone as well as they are beautiful creation of nature.Consequently,people should not cut trees for several purpose such as making furniture, building skyscrapers.To illustrate, in India,all schools have been celebrating 5th June as an environment day since 10 years and all school pupils every year plant trees to save environment.Hence, teachers impart knowledge of environment to their school students.

    On the contrary, government should emphasize on improving environment. Also,factories should be penalized by government owing to that they throw their waste in lake,river and air that produce pollution on the earth.Thus, companies have great contribution in making environment worse.For instance,Gujarat is known as an industrial area in India and all factories had been throwing poisonous gas at night but they were high penalized by health and safety department in the year of 2017.As a result,skin diseases have extinct and people get clean water as compared to past.

    To recapitulate,although government should make rules and companies should find method to dispose waste, individuals have more way to save environment such as growing trees and chnaging their lifestyle.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      ‘individuals liability’ it should be individuals’ liability. ‘it will certainly arduous’ it will certainly be arduous. ‘several purpose’ several purposes. ‘skin diseases have extinct’ skin diseases have disappeared. Changing spelling is wrong. Overall a decent attempt.

    One cannot deny the fact that the ecology issue has an enormous importance in the world at the start of 21st century. There are contrasting viewpoints on whether government and large companies should solve this problem, or is it in the individuals’ hands. This essay will consider the validity of both sides and provide my opinion on this topic.
    First of all, it is necessary to clarify that with the growing urbanization rate and the increasing number of factories and manufacture plants global ecological situation will continue to deteriorate every day and if nothing changes, there will be irreversible consequences. That is why many people consider that only government can mitigate this problem. For instance, government could reduce the level of emissions by imposing restrictions on factories or by promotion and investment of green energy, like wind or solar energy. Similarly, large companies could use environmentally friendly and recyclable materials in their production.
    On the other hand, it should not be forgotten that small steps are better than none and even one person can help to improve situation. The progress should start from individual’s attempts, by changing person’s daily habits and his attitude toward environment. First of all, it should start from learning to respect and protect the nature surrounding us.
    In conclusion, taking into account the above-mentioned points, I would like to say that government should take matters on their own hands, since it is able to do this more efficient and faster; however we should not forgot about our own responsibility towards the environment.
