    2. The years we spend at school are believed to be the happiest years of our lives, according the majority of people. There are many points to support the former view, but some people don’t agree with this statement. Firstly, I believe that adulthood is a better time when it comes to human life. Almost every student wants to be independent. At our age, most of us often argue with our parents who still treat us like children, which leads to us wanting to move away from our home, and get our own car and flat. Most teenagers complain that their lives are unfair and that high school is the worst part. Because of this, we would like to be adults and start living on our own with the freedom to make choices and decide for ourselves, and to do anything we want. On the other hand, I know that even though many students complain and look forward to graduating, there will eventually come a time where we will miss being in school. During the years that we are in school, we are young, healthy, and look our best. Our main obligation is learning, so parents give us money and we don’t have to work. We have a lot of time to focus on our hobbies, try different sports, party, and make new friends. If we commit a crime, we will have milder consequences than adults. Being a teenager means that you aren't a child, but you also aren't an adult yet. It is the time where you can experience some real adult life, but you can also have a lot of fun since you are still young enough to. Adults can’t skip work and just give their boss a sick note, because then they would lose their job. To sum it all up, I think that our teenage years, as every other period in our life, has some pros and cons. However, from my point of view, the advantages strongly outweigh the disadvantages.

    2. In my hometown Wuhan, China, traffic congestion is an everyday phenomenon. I was once stuck in heavy traffic jam on the way to a railway station and had no choice but to change the ticket for the next shift in the end.However, I have developed an interest in traffic congestion since then. Traffic congestion in transport networks means slower speeds, longer trip times, and increased vehicular queueing [1], which is a common consequence of the urbanization, as well as a global issue that all metropolis will face. Some articles show that traffic congestion can cause serious waste of time and energy, and can cause air pollute the air with poisonous gases, which eventually reduces the standard of living. The long traffic jam also might be an obstacle for the ambulances or fire brigades and thus may cause heavy loss of life and property. According to the statistics from the Chinese Academy of Science traffic congestion and management problems the top 15 cities in China lose one billion RMB a day on the average. Further, the super large cities like Beijing the cost reaches six billion RMB per month.[2] Traffic congestion that brought the society huge losses has made increasingly interested in exploring the its causes and solutions how to avoid it. Reasons contributing to the traffic congestion are manifold. Primarily, in lieu with the rapid development of economy the number of private cars has increased dramatically leading to a situation where the main roads and parking facilities designed years ago are somewhat inadequate and need to be improved. Secondly, most public places (like the hospitals, schools and international shopping malls) with high-quality services are concentrated in the city center. This means there is a need to bring in the patients or consumers from the outskirts to the downtown area. Moreover, most of the residential areas are far away from the working place, forming a "tidal phenomenon" in the city. According to a 2018 report published by the ‘JIGUANG Big Data’*, 17.1% of commuters in Beijing commute more than 25 kilometers one way. Also, the insufficient public transportation supply with crowded buses and incomplete metro lines restricts the passengers to use of public transport and eventually makes the traffic jams worse. Focusing on the causes mentioned above, I come up with several corresponding solutions to alleviate the current problems. Firstly, expanding the capacity of the congested roads by not only adding lanes but building overpasses and tunnels as well. Secondly, improving the service standard in the surrounding areas by building satellite cities. For example, Japan solved the congestion problem in Tokyo by dispersing population and industry to its satellite cities, and the process went through five stages from 1958 to the late 1990s. [3] Thirdly, introducing intelligent transportation system (ITS) to smartly manage the traffic through big data collecting, especially on the commuting routes. Finally, developing fast transporting communities guided by fast tunnel traffic [4] to increase the convenience and comfort for residents using public transports to get to work. For instance, from 2006 to 2009, 62% of the new residential area in Shanghai was within 1000 meters to the rail transit [5]. All in all, the traffic congestion challenge has revealed that when formulating a policy more perspectives, the long-term development in particular, should be taken into consideration as well proper adjustment of the policy as the social development takes place. Besides, we could also actively learn from other countries while making appropriate adjustments according to our local needs. Only in this way can we create a suitable policy to satisfy the needs of the maximum number of people.
