This task I already did in some weeks ago, and the answer is B, the impact of natural to environment
Impact = pose
Natural = agriculture
(Although other options will be related, but the question on the head passage,)

A

There are 2 reasons we'll need more food.

- the population growth
- the spread of prosperity

The answer is "A"

But sheer population growth isn’t the only reason we’ll need more food. The spread of prosperity across the world, especially in India and China, is driving an increased demand for meat, eggs and dairy, boosting pressure to grow more corn and soybeans to feed more cattle, pigs and chickens

Dear Simon sir , I have improved my ielts score after watching your video lesson's for writing but still couldn't managed the score I needed. I need a teacher to assess my work , please sir help me . Many thanks in advance.

B

A of course

Hi dear Simon! After 10 minuets I think the right answer is B. But I have a problem with this kind of question in reading section. How can i get the right answer in few minuets! Thanks in advance.

My answer is A.

================
But sheer population growth isn’t the only reason we’ll need more food.

If these trends continue, the double whammy of population growth and richer diets will require us to roughly double the amount of crops we grow by 2050.

Thanks

at first , I thought the answer is B, after read two more times, I chose A as the answer.

A is my answer.

I think I would have to choose A.
Two key trends are (1)population growth and (2)economic prosperity around the world.

C

Hi simon and folks,

I'm off topic, but I'll ask it anyway.

What's the difference between 'at' 50% and 'with' 50%?
The price rose (at/with) 50%.

I read it on a website, 'with' is used for the highest figure, while 'at' for any rate. Is this correct?
Thank you

B for sure

IMHO A

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

A

The two trends are population growth and the spread of prosperity.

B

Simon

Why two other answers are wrong?


Any reasons?

We want to know

How you can rule out (. B. )?


Explain please,


Hi Bee,

My explanation is this. We agree that we have to choose the BEST heading. This does not mean that the other two headings are TOTALLY wrong. There is just one reference to the environment in the passage, which is MAINLY about the two reasons why there is an increasing demand for food.
I hope this helps.

@ Pete Walton


No help at all because the first sentence of each paragraph contains the main idea, which is the main idea here and exactly mentioned in the question (B )

.

.


Hi Bee,
It is great that you are giving a lot of thought to this question. The first sentence also refers to 'the growing need for food worldwide'. Possible answer A mentions 'driving the demand for food worldwide'.

As a result, I do not think that we can take the word 'environmental'and the word 'agriculture' on their own to argue for B as the best answer. We have to now consider the passage as a whole.

Hi Pete Walton


Ok


Thanks


U r right and I have no doubt that mr simon is 100 % correct,


But I am confused.com


Hahaha

OK Bee,

Remember that the passage chosen by Simon was very useful, but it did not come from an IELTS past test paper, so don't worry.

Your technique of paying special attention to the first sentence of the paragraph is not wrong. It is just that in this particular passage, this first sentence left us with more than one possibility. When this is the case, we have to consider the passage as a whole.

If you continue to study in the same thoughtful way, I am sure that you will continue to make good progress.

A

Thanks Pete. Your explanation really helps as always!

two reasons: the worldwide population growth and the prosperity of some countries

The answer must be A

Sure the answer is A. Look at the last sentence "these two trends"......
