Today you’ll learn how to plan and answer the toughest Task 2 question from the IDP website.

I found this mixed Task 2 question on IDP’s website. Although it is older, an updated version could still be found on an IELTS Exam today.

Here’s the question:

The first car appeared on British roads in 1888. By the year 2000 there may be as many as 29 million vehicles on British roads.
Alternative forms of transport should be encouraged and international laws introduced to control car ownership and use.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?
