Question 3

Write a letter to the Minister of Works in your country complaining about the deplorable condition of the roads in your area and the effects this has on the lives of your people.


This is a formal letter of complaint to the Minister of Works in the candidate's country. The candidate is required to complain about the deplorable conditions of the roads in his area and discuss the effects of this on the lives of his people. There were many good attempts on this question as the candidates had no problem in spelling out the poor nature of the roads.

One obvious shortcoming, however, is that some of the candidates wrote on the deplorable conditions of roads in their country instead of their area and as such, could not link the effects intimately with the lives of the people. Such a link is an important aspect of the question.
