A student asked me for advice about the question below:
The use of mobile phones in public places is as antisocial as smoking. Smoking is banned in certain places, so mobile phones should be banned in the same way. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Here's what the student asked:
If I regard the part about mobile phones being antisocial as a fact, and only focus on answering whether we should ban them like smoking, is that okay? And how can we determine which part of the question requires an answer?
What do you think? I'll give you my answer next week.
