SAMPLE ANSWERS

Task 1 Model Answer

The graph shows us the number of books read at the Burnaby Public Library by men and women during the four years of 2011 to 2014.

As the graph shows us, there is a reasonable difference between the men and women, with the number of books read by men on a steady increase during this period, while the number of books read by women was on the rise till 2013, after which it was on a decline.

The number of books read by men increased from about 3000 in 2011 to 4000 in 2012, then 10,000 in 2013, and then all the way to 14,000 in 2014, which was the highest figure between the two in that period.

This period started though, with women reading more books than men with the number starting around 5000 in 2011 and increased to 8000 books in 2012, and then rose to 10,000 books in 2013. However, post-2013, the numbers fell back to 8000 again.

Overall, the number of books read by men have been on a steady increase during this period from 3000 to 14,000, while more books were read by women in the starting of this period at around 5000 and the numbers increased till 2013, but then dropped down below the numbers of men to 8000 in 2014.

Task 2 Model Answer

The advent of new technology has meant that machines are now more than capable of doing many of the tasks that people used to do. There are both advantages and disadvantages of this development.

The significant advantage of having machines do the work is their speed and efficiency. Machines tend to be much faster and more efficient at doing repetitive tasks such as those performed in factories. Besides, the human error factor is eliminated, further saving time and cost. The expensive initial outlay the machines require is definitely worth the investment because machines can be used for a long time. Infact, it is more economical than the human salary component, which includes sick leave, annual leave, etc.

However, there are also several disadvantages. Machines cannot be used for every task, as the “human touch” is necessary for completing specific tasks. For instance, machines cannot interface with a customer or client in the same way as human beings. Nor can they create new ideas or concepts in the innovative way that people can. Machines are also incapable of taking the initiative. Besides, many machines require costly maintenance, which can reduce their overall cost-effectiveness.

In conclusion, machines certainly have their place in society, supporting and freeing up people’s time, therby enabling them to concentrate on other aspects of work or life. But, they also have their limitations.
