Her Task 2 question was:

Nowadays, more people would rather buy food than cook at home.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of this trend?

Advantages of buying food could be ease, saving time, and lack of clean-up.

Disadvantages are that it costs more and unknown ingredients.

You should use personal examples to support these ideas.

For example, as a Type 1 diabetic, Jessica has a tough time eating out due to unknown added carbohydrates which raises her blood-sugar levels.

One danger of getting an advantage/disadvantage essay is knowing how the essay will differ from an argument essay.

Be aware, also, that IELTS will not use these same exact writing questions anytime soon.

Knowing recent questions is good for practice though!
