WRITING TASK 2 (AC+GT):-
Traffic on roads has become a problem in nearly every country in the world. What can be done to reduce the amount of traffic at a society level and at an individual level?
In nearly every city around the world, the volume of traffic on roads has become a significant problem. Society’s dependence on the car has led to nearly all families owning at least one car and often two. Changing this situation will not to be easy, but a series of social reforms and education could allow the numbers of cars on today’s roads to be reduced.
To decrease, traffic, multiple social reforms could be imposed. First of all, fuel prices could be raised, while simultaneously public transportation improved. The aim would be to make more people rely on the public transportation. Another method to decrease traffic in cities would be to decrease the number of parking slots in the city and increase the cost for these. This method also aims at encouraging the usage could be give tax breaks, if proven, that the person is using public transport on a regular basis.
In addition to social reforms, each individual would need to be educated to increase awareness of the environment. This could be achieved through addressing the matter using multiple media. Within this campaign, the environmental as well as the individual benefits of decreasing the usage of cars would have to be highlighted.
In conclusion, only when individuals become aware can social reforms function properly. Success would mean more people using public transport and fewer people using cars. When this goal is achieved, stress on the environment will be decreased.

PART – 2 CUE CARD
Describe a time when you really close to a wild animal
- What it looks like
- Where can you see it
- What it likes to eat or do
- Why you like it
India is a diverse country. There are many types of animals found in India. There are pet animals, domestic animals. Here I am going to talk about an animal, which I saw for the first time in Mini zoo at Chandigarh. I saw it from a distance of eight to ten feet. It is the Elephant. I like it because even though it is wild animal, it doesn’t seem so intimidating as the lion or tiger. The elephants are the biggest land animals. They are herbivorous and can be identified because of their trunk. The trunk is the projection of their nose and the upper lips. There are two types of elephants, the Indian and the African. African elephants are bigger than their Indian counterparts. They have comparatively larger ears. Among the African elephants both the males and females have trucks whereas, only the males among the Indian elephants have tusks and so they are called tuskers. The back of the Indian elephants have is convex whereas that of the African elephants is concave. Indian elephants can be tamed and I think they are more beautiful. Elephants are gregarious animals and live in herds headed by tuskers. They have a well-structured family life. The cow elephants look after the young ones, called the calf. Their cry is called trumpet. In India, elephants are captured, tamed and used for various purposes. Elephants are among the few animals whose existence is not endangered till now.

Yes, I like all wild animals but from afar. I love to see programmes of wild animals on the Discovery Channel and the National Geographic Channel and I even enjoy watching them in zoos.
