DAILY BEST IELTS Writing Task, 25 May
Academic Writing Task 1:-
The given graphs represent the pocket money of students and their spending habits. Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The bar graph shows that pocket money received by students varies between $50 and $170. The greatest number of students (i.e. 16 students) received between 570 and $90, though there are a fair number of students that received pocket money between $50 and $110. The number of students that received an amount ranging between $130 and $170 is pretty small.
The pie chart depicts the spending habits of students; rather it shows where the pocket money went. The greatest amount (i.e. 30%) was spent on books and a little less (i.e. 25%) was spent on eatables, whereas 20% each was spent on video games and gifts. There was not much expenditure on chocolates (5%).
Overall, it can be observed from both the graphs that the majority of students received less than $100
as pocket money. The fact that they are able to buy books as well as gifts from this amount indicates that they have enough and to spare. In any case, spending on books should be a welcome sign.

Writing Task 2 (AC+GT):-
After birth what will play a major role in one’s personality and development: Nature or Nurture? Give reason for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Man is a product of the genetic make-up that he is born with, as well as, the environment and the education that he is exposed to. Nature and Nurture both have strong influences on human development. Nature is genetic but nurture is the external forces on factors that exert influence on life.
I strongly feel that nurture is more important in what a child will grow up to. There is the Folklore about the wolf boy who was born to human parents , but was carried away into the jungle by the wolves ,which then raised him as one in their family. Slowly he grew up to be a wild two-legged animal. His personality and behavior were completely transformed. This is what nurturing does, transform the whole individual. Likewise, many times we have seen children born into families with criminal background and later adopted into genteel families have later turned out to have very pleasant personality. This happens because of the strong family influences and because of good nurturing.
This is not to discount the influence of nature. Nature plays its role right from the time the mother conceives. Nature is in the form of inherited traits which exist right from birth. sometimes fraternal twins raised apart have remarkable similarities in looks and behaviour, this is possible only because of Nature.
Nature is responsible for producing healthy babies but nurture helps to produce happy babies behaviour is, to a great deal, influenced by nurture or environmental factors.
It is very difficult to know whether certain traits are predisposed in one’s DNA or they are the influence or experience of life. Though one cannot be sure which ones are more important, inherited traits or the ones picked up in life, the balance appears to be tilted slightly in favour of the latter.

PART – 2 CUE CARD
Describe a place where you relaxed
- You should say
- Where it is
- What you usually do there;
- How often you go there;
- And explain why it is a relaxing place
Relaxation is important in everyone’s life. Everyone has different ways of relaxation. Elderly people go to religious places and parks to relax. Young people have a lot of pent up energy, so they go to gyms and discos to sweat out that energy, and relax. I usually go to a gurdwara to relax. I went that last Sunday and spent the whole afternoon there. I go there; I do circumambulation of the holy book inside the main hall, and pay obeisance to the almighty. There is a well-maintained fishpond in the gurdwara, which has many species of fish. I just sit on the steps of the pond and listen to the holy chants going on all the time there. It gives me great relaxation and peace of mind. Last Sunday, I took some bread from home and feed the fish. There are two catfish among the many other, which seem to be talking to me. I know that the tempo of life has slowed down a bit. It is so relaxing to watch the movements of the fish in the water. This activity takes away all the physical and mental tiredness away from my body. I feel very light-hearted after that. Even though there is always a great rush in this temple, yet one can find peace and quiet over there. Sometimes, I offer voluntary services in the community kitchen over there. Free food is offered to one and all in the community kitchen and this service is round the clock. So, this is the place I went to relax.
