BAND 9.0 SAMPLE ANSWER:
I’ve been living in Delhi city since the 1990s. I remember waking up to the dewy December mornings, fresh raindrops, and the seemingly paradise it was then.
But Delhi is at an alarmingly high AQI now. It has become the most sought after city by the IT companies which has led to the condition that it is now. The city is overcrowded, and almost everybody owns a car. The carbon emissions from these vehicles have polluted the air so much that the city has become quite warm. Also, being the number one industrial city, it is notoriously high at sulfur dioxide emissions as well.
Almost every 1 in 5 of the kids suffer from wheezing. It is distressing to see children line up in hospitals with a variety of diseases. Older people suffer too. Being less immune and more prone, they are the most affected by air pollution in ABC. Lack of fresh air has caused many environmental hazards too. Trees have stunted growth. Many plants and shrubs which used to grow well in ABC soil don’t thrive now. Water pollution has also caused in Bathinda becoming the cancer belt of the world.
