The chart shows the number of shops that closed and the number of new shops opening in a country from 2011 to 2018.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

The line chart provides a comprehensive overview of shop closures and openings in a particular nation from 2011 to 2018.

It is evident that both figures experienced a decline, with openings exhibiting a more pronounced reduction. By the conclusion of the period, closures had become the more prevalent phenomenon.

In 2011, the country witnessed approximately 8,500 shop openings, a substantial figure in contrast to the 6,200 closures recorded during the same period. Over the subsequent years, openings underwent fluctuating trajectories, decreasing to a minimum of 4,000 in 2012 before partially recovering to 6,100 in 2014. Notably, closures demonstrated a more consistent pattern, reaching a zenith of 7,100 in 2013, nearly aligning with opening figures in 2014.

Following this juncture, closures experienced a plunge to a mere 600 in 2015, followed by a return to a high level of around 5,100 in 2016, concluding with an almost unaltered period from 2016 to 2018. In contrast, openings exhibited a more modest decline, hovering around 4,000 from 2015 to 2017, reaching a precise low of 3,000 in 2018.

Writing Task 2

Nowadays, an increasing number of people with health problems are using alternative medicines and treatments instead of visiting their normal doctor.

Do you think this is a positive or negative development?

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

In recent times, an increasing number of individuals grappling with health issues have turned to alternative medicines and therapies. While some may find them beneficial, I hold the view that this shift carries predominantly negative implications owing to the superiority of modern medicine.

Proponents of alternative remedies often cite historical evidence to bolster their claims. For instance, traditional Chinese medicine, widely embraced in Asia, boasts a lineage spanning centuries, even millennia. Many of its treatments have withstood the test of time and yielded positive results. While contemporary science may eventually unravel the scientific basis behind these remedies, our current lack of understanding should not discount their overall significance.

Nevertheless, the bulk of reliable medical interventions stem from modern advancements. Through meticulous research, scientists have unraveled the intricacies of cellular structures, viruses, bacteria, cancers, and numerous other ailments. This knowledge has paved the way for the development of highly effective procedures like surgery and groundbreaking medicines such as penicillin. The mechanisms behind these treatments are wellestablished, ensuring their continued refinement and safety over time. Conversely, traditional medicine, while occasionally effective, lacks the same depth of understanding and is unlikely to progress significantly.

In conclusion, barring a few exceptions, modern medicine surpasses alternative therapies and pharmaceuticals in terms of reliability. While individuals may explore alternative treatments, they should ultimately place their trust in conventional medical practitioners.
