    The line graph highlights the world population growth from 1800 to 2100, while the bar chart shows the urban population in developed and undeveloped regions between 2015 and 2040.

    Overall, the global population figure witnessed an upward trend from 1800 to 2000 and is expected to escalate before dropping down after the year 2040. The number of urban people in the developed region is expected to experience a linear growth in the forthcoming years, whereas the population of developing regions is anticipated to remain steady.

    The line chart data reveals that globally there were exactly 1000 million people during the year 1800. The population showed a twofold rise to 2000 million after the start of the year 1920 and gradually rose by threefold in the year 2000, being exactly at 6000 million. It is expected that the global population will increase further to a peak (8000 million) before declining to nearly 6200 million in 2100.

    In terms of the population of developed regions, the figure started at above 2000 million and is predicted to uplift in the upcoming years. On the other hand, the population of developing urban areas which was nearly 1200 million in 2015 is forecasted to remain the same from 2020 to 2040.

    There are split opinions concerning news agencies particularly the print media, whether they are entitled to disclose personal issues of individuals, or such matters should be regulated. I strongly believe that allowing media houses in reporting details about peoples private life can be more detrimental than the positives, and this essay will explore both views in detail.

    First of all, I will articulate my perspective on this issue and one major consequences that may occur when newspapers are allowed to report private details about individuals is character assassination. To explain further, a media organization which is aligned to a political party can publish anything negative about their opponents without any merit just for the purposes of defaming them. For instance, in April, 2014, the Eye newspaper in Gabon, which was owned by the presidential candidate of the RPP published that candidate of the NFP who was their main opponent had killed his wife for rituals to help him win the polls, but it later turned out not be true. In addition, when issues concerning people’s personal life are to be known to the public through publications, it will deter people from holding public office since some perons dislike their personal issues being discuss in the public.

    On the contrary, others have a view that the media should not be restricted in anyway on their reportage, since it can result in infringement of media freedom which has been fought for many years now.

    To conclude, my view is that there can be more harmed than good when the media houses are allowed to post any news specifically pertaining to peoples private life without cross checking, however it should not be used as a tool to gag the media.

      Your introduction is incorrect because essay does not ask about your opinion, it simply says discuss both views. Similarly the starting of second paragraph is incorrect you have to simply write two paragraphs one explaining why its right and second explaining why its wrong. Same goes for your conclusion. Please make sure that take care of such small things because these are evaluated in the task completion parameter.

    The line graph reveals the world population of 300 years,while the bar graph illustrates the developed and undeveloped part of the country from 2015 to 2040.(is it correct? Here mention about prediction ?it shows the prediction of future?)

    Overall,the world population will be highest in the year of 2040 during the year of 1800 to 2100.Whereas the figure of developed region will remain stable,the population of developed region will increase in future.

    According to the line graph,the pattern of the world population growth stood at 1000 millions in 1800 but it inclined smoothly to 2000 million in the year of 1920.Furthermore, it swelled to 6000 millions of people in 2000.Then it will again soar and reach its zenith 8000 millions population in 2040 before declining to approximately 6100 millions of people in 2100.

    As per the bar graph, the figure of developing region had experienced nearly 2100 millions of population and there will be about 400 millions more population in 2020 as compared to 2015.Moreover,growth of the population in developing region will leap around 3200 millions of people after a decade.But,at the end of the period, the figure of population will hit the high point 4000 millions of people in 2040.

    (Let me know here where I have to use “to”.leap around to 3200 million?I have used it,is it correct?)

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      You have to mention in introduction that the data is of past as well as future predictions. Always use the with highest and do not write will be because these predictions and you cannot be sure so write is predicted to peak in 2040, something which we have clearly mentioned in our tutorial on future predictions. Same mistake repeated in rest of the task, use words like predicted to, forecasted to, expected to. 2100 millions of population is wrong write population of 2100 million. Do not write millions with number alone like 400 millions.

    There is no doubt that media such as TV, newspaper,magazine and radio play vital role in spreading up to the minute information across the globe.While some people believe that media should provide limited informations regarding life of people, some advocate that it is better to provide all informations.But,i support the latter notion and in the following section both views will be discussed.

    To commence with,some details of other people are beneficial as people come to know about the culture, customs,traditions and religion of plenty of people of all over the globe. Thus,mass media provides one platform to people where they easily embrace other culture and life style.Secodly, some people have fascinating life story which inspires others.Hence,famous person became source of inspiration and people learn to cope with all situations of life.To illustrate,the great Indian cricketer Virat Kohli went to play test match in West Indies in the year of 2006 and suddenly his father got died while he was playing cricket.But, he did not give up match and he played well,finished match and came to India,his hometown. Consequently, after reading this news all youngsters in India often desire to become a fearful cricketer like Virat Kohli.

    On the contrary,there are many drawbacks in this issue.Since people try to communicate with them, whenever people who became famous,go out side from home, do not feel comfortable.For instance,the indian filmstars Deepika and Ranveer Kapoor had installed strict security measures in their wedding ceremony because they did not want to open the happy pages of their private life in the community.

    To recapitulate,although people do not feel secure to go outside due to lack of privacy in their life,people accept multiculture and are encouraged by activity of famous people.

      ‘spreading up to the’ to should not come here. limited information not informations, there is no word as informations. ‘person became source’ become not became. ‘father got died’ got should not come here. ‘fearful cricketer’ fearless not fearful. Conclusion needs to be better it is too abrupt.
