Hi Simon,
Is it correct if I begin 1st sentence in the 2nd paragraph with ''As can be seen'' in stead of ''It is cleared that''?

And thanks for the full writings.

Hi Simon, why it is "Travel by taxi saw the most significant change"? 42 is about 3 times of 13 but only increased 29 miles, while "other" raised 135 miles?
Thanks!

is it fine not tho mention the decreased transportation mode in overview while still putting it to the paragraph? I always follow simon's way of writing according to this https://ielts-simon.com/ielts-help-and-english-pr/2018/09/ielts-writing-task-1-super-cohesion.html#comments

sorry I mean "not to mention"

Hi Simon! Can we use "means of transport" to replace "forms of transport" ?
Thanks your help 😊
