  1. regarding your post, i think is is good to use in writing task. you have given clear point for the topic that you post. students need to elaborate the point by adding elaboration and giving some example. i terms of sustainable development, it shows that actually we are not saving our earth. this is because, the gadget use need electricity to charge the battery. -however, we still can use it if we know the exact way to reduce the use of electricity. one of them is to switch off the laptop if we are not using it instead of switch it into sleep mode to conserve the electricity. -zureza-
