题目：The charts below show the percentage of men and women working in different fields with different working duration in each week in the UK in 2014.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant. Write at least 150 words.
The pie charts compare the distribution of employed British men and women working over different hours bands in the government and private sectors over the year of 2014.
Overall, both sexes working in the private corporations spent more time in their work than the government officials. And the number of men in these two sectors working for more than 45 hours apparently outweighed that of the females.
In the government, there were 4% of the males dedicated more than 45 hours to their work while only 2% of the females tended to work over this hours band. The most common number of hours that both men and women worked was between 16-25 hours per week (55% for men and 40% for women). As for the situation where people worked in 1-15 hours, women represented 25%, going slightly over the males that accounted for 20%. In a similar pattern, the females working for 26-35 hours outnumbered their male counterparts by 5% (20% and 15% for each). It is also noticeable that the percentage of the female workers working for 36-45 hours was nearly twofold as much as that of the males.
In the private company, both the males and the females devoted more hours to work. There were 20% of men and 15% of women working for 46 hours or more. For both sexes, the highest figure of working hours was between 26-35 hours. It is also worth pointing out that the percentages of males working for 36-45 hours and 1-15 hours were 5% higher than those of the females. In addition, the rate of men who spent 16-25 hours on their work was the same as that of women, representing 20%.

题目：When new town is planned, it is more important to develop public parks and sports facilities than shopping centres for people to spend their free time in. Do you agree or disagree?
When it comes to the construction of new towns and cities, disputes often arise whether to build public parks with sports facilities or shopping malls for the residents nearby. Some people are strongly for the gardens and athletic equipment, but I stand on the side of shopping malls.
Undeniably, the green spaces in community gardens make the air cleaner and fresher, which is beneficial for dwellers’ health when living and exercising in such environment. Moreover, the possibility for one to do sports in their free time might be increased if the equipment is within easy reach. However, people nowadays are more likely to engage in indoor activities, due to weather conditions and living habits; plus the lack of proper maintenance and instructions for some outdoor public facilities, the plan always turns out to be deviated from expectation.
In contrast, shopping centres seldom fail us in terms of their functions. Not only are supermarkets and chain stores set in the area, but also a variety of entertainment services, such as cinemas, restaurants, beauty salon and DIY-workshops. People can buy necessities with great convenience from a number of choices, or gather with friends and family to savour a delicious meal there. Life becomes more colourful and diversified thanks to such multi-functional malls. On a larger scale, such commercial centres play an indispensable role boosting the local economy. When starting a new business, the stores and restaurants often require staff for managing, selling and cleaning, which creates many job opportunities for the residents nearby. If well managed, the shopping centre can develop and form its own style, attracting visitors from other places, along with a flow of financial income to the business and government as a whole.
To conclude, while public parks and sports facilities are very desirable for a new town, the benefits they bring us are somehow too ideal rather than realistic. However, it is the shopping centre that ensures a tangible outcome for both the individuals and the government in the local area.
