Here is the sample for “describe a polluted place” topic:
(Where the place is?) There are very few places in the world that are pollution-free. Almost everyone acknowledges the fact that pollution is rising continuously at an alarming rate all over the world. (When you visited this place?) A couple of weeks ago, I visited Kanpur, the former Manchester of India, for my cousin’s wedding. Although I stayed there for only three days, I had an awful experience because of the pollution and huge traffic jam. (What kind of pollution you saw there?) On our way to the wedding venue, we got stuck in the traffic for more than 2 hours. The accumulation of vehicular emissions and dust has polluted the air in Kanpur so much that it has alarming AQI levels. (And Explain how this place was affected?) Said to be one of India’s most populous cities, everyone owns a car or a motorbike and is always commuting back and forth. Whilst lorries, buses, and trucks ply on the road release higher levels of pollution far more than its capacity. A majority of the city people have become prone to asthma and respiratory diseases due to air pollution. Thus, Kanpur needs utmost attention in reducing the AQI levels.
