The Problem with Categorising Essays
I just want to ask if the question below is a Discussion or an Opinion essay, the question stated was:
In some countries, cars are used as the main transport vehicle while in other countries, bicycles are widely used.
Why do you think this trend is happening?
What development do you think is better?
First, I interpreted it as a Discussion essay with opinion.
I stated my opinion in the introduction and conclusion.Paragraph One:
I wrote that bicycles are used because they are environmentally friendly with no emissions of carbon dioxide and they can be advisable for short distance travel.Paragraph Two:
I mentioned that cars are better because of mobility reasons and explained that most developed countries have infrastructure such as wide highways and elevated motorways so the road users can move at any point in the city centers.
Is it right that I interpret the question this way?
Thanks for enlightening me.
