Agree or disagree question
In an essay about "If mothers have to get salary from government" It was an 'agree/disagree' question.
Not 'To what extent do you agree'.
But I approached the theme as partially agreeing from both sides.

What is the difference between these agree / disagree IELTS prompts?
by Shaon Paul
(Sydney NSW Australia)
i would like to know the difference between the questions "do you agree or disagree?" and "to what extent do you agree or disagree?"
Some experts say that i have to just support one aspect in the first one and both aspects in the 2nd question. So i am little confused.
Giving Pros and Cons
by naila khalil
What if a statement is given, then it is asked to what extent do you agree or disagree with it?
And what are the advantages and disadvantages of this development?
In case I totally disagree with the statement, then should I go for both advantages and disadvantages of the development?
Do I have to fully agree or disagree?
I had my test today, and it was an agree/disagree essay.
The question was:
People argue that team sports should be a part of the school timetable for children rather than individual sports such as swimming or running.
Do you agree or disagree?
I wrote that I don’t think any of them should be disregarded as they both have many benefits for students.
Would that make me lose band scores because I didn't fully agree or disagree with a certain aspect?
Can we write about both sides?
I am confused of when to write both sides especially in opinion essay.
For example in below topic:
"Some people say that it is possible to tell a lot about a person's culture and character from their choice of clothes.
Do you agree or disagree?"
In this can i write as below:
- Introduction: I agree that culture & character affects clothes
- Body Para 1: I will explain why culture & character affects clothes
- Body Para 2: I will explain why there culture & character don't affect clothes
- Conclude: I agree again that culture & character affects clothes with touching other side
Is above approach is fine or should i only write about only one standpoint, that culture & character affects clothes in both Body Para?
Please reply. Appreciate in advance!
