Summary Writing

Posted on: November 2, 2008

Read the following passage and summarize the disadvantages of living in a city.

City dwellers pay dearly for the doubtful privilege of living in a city. They pay exorbitantly for accommodation which is frequently inferior to that to be found cheaply in rural areas, they spend huge sums on food which they could have grown for themselves in a village or rural ‘town’ and they waste that little is left on expensive entertainments, which they would have no need for in a rural area. In addition to the financial cost, they also pay dearly in terms of physical and mental health as their bodies and minds are threatened daily in pollution, accidents, robbery, violence and the disease caused by overcrowding in unsanitary areas. In the rural areas such risks are not part of the cost of daily life.
