Many studies say that older people do not exercise enough. What are the reasons for this? What would you suggest to encourage them to exercise?


Hi guys

I try my self any one can help me plz to improve

On one hand, For the most part, when older people lose their ability to do things on their own, it doesn't happen just because they've aged. It's usually because they're not active. Lack of physical activity also can lead to more visits to the doctor, more hospitalizations, and more use of medicines for a variety of illnesses.

On other side, Regular physical activity and exercise are important to the physical and mental health of almost everyone, including older adults. Staying physically active and exercising regularly can produce long-term health benefits and even improve health for some older people who already have diseases and disabilities. That's why health experts say that older adults should aim to be as active as possible.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. Yes
The writer's opinion is that the lava flows are "even more stunning" than Niagra Falls.

2. Not given
There is no information about whether they are the first 3D images.

3. Not given
There is no information about whether the photos prove the existence of liquid on Mars.

4. No
It is not "more active than ever", it was "once (in the past) far more active".

Hello Simon,

I would like to make enquiries about two of your answers, first and second ones.
1. "except" made the sentence negative, didn't it?
2. "new" means first, doesn't it?

It would be appreciated in advance if you made them clear.


Yes
No
No
Not given

1. (Yes) Lava flows on Mars are more beautiful than one of Earth’s most famous waterfalls.
"except even more stunning than the one on Earth"
2. (NG) Nasa has just released the first ever 3D images of Mars.
"has released stunning photos" - "have been pictured in stunning new 3D images." BUT not mention is first
3. (No) The new photographs prove that liquid may be present on Mars.
"searching for proof of liquid water on Mars, which would be a signal of life" - "the planet itself was once far more alive than it is today"
4. (NG) The photos show that the surface of Mars is more active than ever.
