The formal written examination can be a valid method to assess students learning. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
论点1：Formal written test is a universally-accepted test form composed by educational authorities, which can systematically and thoroughly examine students’ curriculum knowledge.
展开1： Compared with other test forms, such as group essay or laboratory test, which are relatively more subjective, formal written tests deliver a direct score representing students’ academic results because the process of creating the tests is more rigorous.
论点2：Formal written exams only test candidates’ theoretical knowledge instead of practical knowledge that can be applied to real-world situation.
展开2：Although some of the current formal tests have already included practical knowledge to some extent, these tests cannot be compared equally with practical tests in terms of assessing practical knowledge.

Do you think cashless society can be a reality in the near future? If so, is it a positive or negative development?
论点1：In light of the rapid progress of digital technology in the recent decades, it is undoubtedly that cashless society will be an inevitable future for most societies regardless of whether the public accepts it or not.
展开1：The transition of being cashless has already begun, with point-of -sale (POS) terminals in place in virtually all retailer stores, and it seems to be pointless to bring a huge amount of cash, giving online transactions taking place on a second-to-second basis.
论点2：Cashless payment has bought and will keep bringing huge convenience for consumers and businesses.
展开2：Customers can enjoy their purchase by swiping their credit card instead of brining a sheer volume of banknotes with them, which is neither safe nor convenient. Meanwhile, businesses can make online transactions with their partners on a global scale, which eliminates geographical limitation for most enterprises.

Reorder Paragraph – Mother of Storm
(1).Unlike Barnes’ previous books, Mother of Storms has a fairly large cast of viewpoint characters.
(2).This usually irritates me, but I didn’t mind it here, and their interactions are well-handled and informative, although occasionally in moving them about the author’s manipulations are a bit blatant.
(3).They’re not all necessarily good guys, either, although with the hurricanes wreaking wholesale destruction upon the world’s coastal areas, ethical categories tend to become irrelevant.
(4).But even the Evil American Corporate Magnate is a pretty likable guy.
Reorder Paragraph – Ocean floors
(1).The topography of the ocean floors is none too well known, since in great areas the available soundings are hundreds or even thousands of miles apart.

(3).A broad, well-defined ridge-the Mid-Atlantic ridge-runs north and south between Africa and the two Americas.
(4).Numerous other major irregularities diversify the Atlantic floor.
(5).Closely spaced soundings show that many parts of the oceanic floors are rugged as mountainous regions of the continents.
