示例：Some people think old buildings should be destroyed and replaced with modern buildings. Do you
There are a vast number of old structures in cities today. Whether they should be demolished is a controversial issue.
第二段提出老房子应该拆，分论点可写成两点：老房子不安全 unsafe, 影响市容 spoil the cityscape.
第三段提出另外一些老房子不能拆。这一段可以写成三个分论点：有特殊意义的老房子 building of hisoric value, 非常漂亮的老房子 gorgeous historic buildings 和特殊的民居 unique ethnic architecture
第四段Conclusion: 有些老房子由于城市的发展必须拆掉，但是有特殊价值的不能拆，反而应该有效保护。Should be effectively preserved.
示例：Some people think motorized flight was theinvention in the 20th century and it has the impact on our lives. To what extent do you agree or disagree?这是问飞机是不是20世纪最伟大的发明，显然要论证最伟大很困难，可以用替代法来论证不是最伟大。
第二段让步段，先承认飞机是一种伟大的发明 admittedly, motorised flight was a groundbreaking invention in the 20th century. 两个分论点：促进国际贸易promote international bussiness；促进文化交流international cultural communication.
第三段举出反例： however，there were inventions even more influcial than motorised flight. 比如computers, the internet 和automobiles.
示例1：Many people are optimistic about the 21st century and see it as an opportunity to make positive changes to the world. To what extent do you agree or disagree with their optimism? What changes would you like to be made in the new century?
这道题说白了就是问我们21世纪是利大于弊还是弊大于利。那么21世纪的利弊各有那些呢？立刻用裸奔法来分析。21世纪在technology, efficiency, rights, money, fun等方面明显取得了积极的进展；而21世纪在soul, crime, environment, employment, competition, population等方面明显存在令人担心的状况。
示例2：Some people think that universities should provide graduates with the knowledge and skills needed in the workplace. Others think that the true function of a university should be to give access to knowledge for its own sake, regardless of whether the course is useful to an employer. What, in your opinion, should be the main function of a university?
大学的目的到底是教就业技能还是教理论知识呢？在现代社会，多数大学是盈利性的，学生们花钱去上学，所以教就业技能对于招生还是很重要的。但是今天的科技变化太快，所以理论也有作用，可以让毕业生在就业技能过时的时候拥有更新自己知识的能力。教job skills的必要性可以从efficiency, employment, competition和money等方面选择2-3点来论述。
