Model Answer 1:
It is true that although the internet has facilitated us in many ways like gifting us a globalisation where this world is now being referred to as a small village but it is also true that it has created many problems too.  In this fast paced technologically high world where parents do not have enough time to look at the activities of their small kids because of their busy schedule, small children also have access to the internet easily. They are exposed to many things on the internet which are not suitable for them. They are learning many things which are not good for them to learn at their age.

In addition to this, the internet has also created problems in the financial world also. Nowadays, people are being misguided in a way that many hackers, spammers, and digital fraud make people fool. For example, my friend is being made fool by one of the hackers on the internet. He has asked him to register with a website which can give assistance to go abroad and for registration he has to pay online. He has given his credit card number. His credit card number is being used by the hacker and he made a lot of transactions from his credit card number.

Moreover, In addition to these disadvantages, the internet has also made people far away from each other. In today's world, people are not interacting with each other because they get too busy in their lives. Instead of meeting with each other personally, people prefer to get in touch with each other through internet only.

All in all, we can say that everything has its own pros and cons and it totally depends on the user. Although the internet creates many problems but it has also benefitted us in many ways.

Besides a lot of advantages, some people believe that the Internet creates many problems.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

The Internet has been one of the most used technology throughout the world in the last few decades, and people are using it regularly for different important works - ranging from sending and receiving emails to searching for different destinations to visit. Some people, however, still use this technology for unproductive tasks. Here, I would disagree with the notion that the internet brings many problems as I consider this technology as a blessing for human civilisation. In this essay, I will describe some of the points which may elaborate my view.

To begin with, the internet is a world of its own; one can have almost anything to find there about health, information, innovative ideas, study materials, and anything he or she feels curious about. Teachers can get information about their lectures, merchants can find ways to reach new customers, job seekers can enhance their skills and knowledge and apply for jobs online, people can make new friends and keep in touch with near and dear ones and all these things have been possible with the help of the internet technology. It is the internet that gives people the ease of food delivery to their doorstep even at 3:00 a.m which was impossible in the past.

Like other technology, the internet comes with a few disadvantages. But these disadvantages stem from the misuse of this technology. If someone get addicted to social networking and play online games all the time, it can not be blamed on the technology itself. If hackers get hold of information of people and sell them for profit, that is also our problem and we can not blame the technology for it. Besides, if our children spend too much time browsing the internet, we can control that and the technology should not be blamed here.

To conclude I would say that the internet is highly important for the world and we can not do without it. So people should use it more sensibly for productive tasks.
