1.Why do people buy equipment? 2.Should children learn to fix it? 3.If it is broken, should people throw it away or fix it? 4.What kind of equipment will make people lazy? 5.Will people be lazy when they get a washing machine or microwave?
Sample answers： 1.Because equipment can be a good helper for human beings while they’re working. Like some kitchen equipment, they can bring much convenience while cooking. They can help to peel, to cut into pieces and to blender. 2.No. I do not think it is safe for children to learn to fix equipment by themselves. There is possibilities that they may cut their finger or get themselves hurt. If kids are interested in installing or repairing machines, it is better to teach them how to use tools first and let them make small practices under the instructions of parents or experienced guiders. 3.People in the past preferred to fix things rather than change for a new one. But nowadays, people are impatient and things are changed rapidly, they choose to buy a new one instead. My opinion is that since the technology is developing rapidly and the updates of technological products are changing fast, I suggest people can buy new version. And fixing is just a waste of time. 4.For example, people prefer using cars and other vehicles to go for a very short distance as well. although people who are more aware try and walk as far as they can to avoid use of vehicles and other appliances. this also stops degradation of many natural resources. technology might have helped in the progress of many countries but it has even lead to unemployment, obesity and laziness in many areas 5.Yes, of course. As cooking is more and more convenient and time-saving than before, people are spending less time on preparing a nice food for themselves. They just buy some semi-finished food in the supermarkets and heat the food for about 5 mins in the microwave. But actually this are basically not healthy and fresh. And they don’t even need dish washers anymore cause many of the food are packed in disposable materials.
