2、 CHOOSE A 和CHOOSE B 表示对A、B的选择；
3、 DO C指题目中提及的某件事情，如：Some people prefer A in order to DO C
MODEL FOR A：
1 Some people hold the opinion that A is superior to B in many ways. Others, however, contradict A. Personally, I would prefer ① because I think A has more advantages.There are numerous reasons why ② , and I would in here explain a few of the most important ones. The main reason is that ③ . It can be given a concrete example ④ .Another reason why I advocate the attitude of A is that ⑤ . Take the case of a thing that ⑥ .One very strong argument for A is that ⑦ . This demonstrates the undeniable fact that ⑧ .Of course, choosing B also has advantages to some extent, ⑨ .But if all these factors are contemplated, the advantages of A carry more weight than those of B. From what has been discussed above, we may finally draw the conclusion that ⑩ . ①表明自己的观点：赞同A②此处填入赞同A的句子③赞同A的原因之一④举例说明原因之一⑤赞同A的原因之二⑥举例说明原因之二⑦举例说明原因之三⑧表明A的优势⑨列出B的1-2个优势⑩总结观点
2 As students we always face the circumstances: A or B. There are advantages and disadvantages on both sides. According to my personality and fondness, I would prefer A rather than B.Although ① . There is no evidence to suggest that B is always better than A. What is more, if you see that ② , you can understand it more deeply.Another reason for me to choose A is that ③ . We can see that ④ .Furthermore, ⑤ . So, as I see it, ⑥ . such experience will definitely be helpful in one’s later life. ①B的优势②举例说明选择A的第一个原因③选择A的第二个原因④举例说明选择A的第二个原因⑤选择A的第三个原因⑥总结观点
3 In my point of view, A is as important as, if not more important than, B. So why not choose A.The reasons are quite clear. Above all, ① . Perhaps the most important example of A is that ② .A further reason why I prefer A is that ③ . There is good evidence to show that ④ .The third and very important reason is that ⑤ .Finally, ⑥ .So from what has been discussed, one can reach only this conclusion ⑦ . ①支持A的第一个原因②举例说明原因之一③支持A的原因之二④举例说明原因之二⑤支持A的原因之三⑥支持A的原因之四⑦重申观点
4 No doubt, I choose A, because there are too many benefits that outnumber its disadvantages not to choose it. But B, on the other hand, has advantages no more than its disadvantages.The most important benefit of A is that① .To achieve the same effect, B will ② .Another benefit of A, which B almost cannot achieve, is that③ .Although B also has its seemingly profound advantages, it can only achieved conditionally because④ .After understanding the reasoning above, it is quite safe now to say: to choose A is a wise action. ①A能带来的第一个好处②B带来的坏处比如：浪费很多东西，如时间，金钱等③A能带来的第二个好处④B的局限性
5 To choose A or choose B is something of a dilemma to the public because they sometimes are confused by the seemingly good qualities of A, and neglect the genuinely good aspects of B.For A, people are often driven to believe that① , and do not notice its intrinsic harming characteristic that② .Another disastrous fact is that the innate quality of B is unconsciously overlooked. For B, ③ .In fact, ④ .Furthermore, ⑤ .Now, after close examination, it is not difficult to draw the conclusion that only choosing B is sensible. ①A的表面好处②A的害处③B的好处不容易被人发现的原因④B的内在好处⑤B的另一个好处
6 Upon to the question that which is better, A or B, people have different opinion about it. A has its advantages, but at the mean time, it has many disadvantages, too. In my point of view, I would prefer B. There are many instances supporting my view.First, we could take as examples. ① . Clearly, ② .In addition, ③ . For example, ④ . As it turned out, ⑤ .Nowadays, ⑥ . It is a fact that⑦ .Finally, the point I am trying to make is that ⑧ . ①举例说明第一个原因②支持B的第一个原因③支持B的第二个原因④举例说明原因之二⑤B的正面结果⑥举例说明原因之三⑦支持B的第三个原因⑧重申观点
7 Some peoples believe A. These people point out the fact that① . However, other people believe B. They point out that ② . They say that ③ .As far as I am concerned, my preference is for A.The main reason why I prefer A is that④ . We can see that ⑤ .A more personal reason why I like A is that⑥ . As I remember, ⑦ .A is superior in another way, that is⑧ because that ⑨ .As a matter of fact, there are also some disadvantages in A, such as ⑩ . But these can be compensated by its advantages. So, in comparison with B, A is surely a clever choice. ①支持A的原因②支持B的原因③进一步阐述④支持A的第一个原因⑤举例说明原因之一⑥支持A的第二原因⑦举例说明原因之二⑧支持A的第三原因⑨举例说明原因之三⑩列举A的劣势
8 In a modern society, people have the freedom to choose A or B. Although they are normally coexist peacefully, they deserve some close examination.If three criteria were taken into account, in comparing these two, I would prefer A.First of all, ① .Another reason is that ② .The third reason, however, goes this way: ③ .In conclusion, it must be explained that these three reasons sometimes intertwine to form an organic whole and thus become more persuasive than any one of them. Then any thinking person must agree that④ . ①支持A的第一个原因及事例②支持A的第二个原因及事例③支持A的第二个原因及事例④A是最佳选择
9 I can present many examples that are very common in our lives. ① . I can say that if you have no experience like these, your life is an inadequate one. In my point of view, I like A much more than B.The first reason can been seen by every person. ② . To illustrate this, there is an examples that is very persuasive: ③ .The second reason for my propensity for A is that④ . I now still remember that ⑤ .Furthermore, ⑥ .B is somewhat important as well. ⑦ . Nonetheless, I still prefer A, for⑧ . ①列举一些支持A的现象②支持A的第一个原因③举例说明原因之一④支持A的第二个原因⑤举例说明原因之二⑥支持A的第三原因⑦列举B的优势⑧重申观点
10 Considering the social atmosphere today, it is not a time to CHOOSE A. It is high time to CHOOSE B. The fact that ① is what I wish to emphasize.Those who object to this idea forget a universal truth --② . As I remember ③ .In addition, ④ . An instance that accompanies this reason is that⑤ . On the other hand, ⑥ .Finally, ⑦ .So if we take a careful consideration, it is not difficult to get the conclusion: ⑧ . ①表明自己的观点：支持B②支持B的第一个原因③举例说明原因之一④支持B的第二个原因⑤举例说明原因之二⑥从反面论证B的优势⑦支持B的第三个原因⑧总结观点
11 It is often difficult for people to decide whether to CHOOSE A or CHOOSE B. But for us students, the advantages of A always outweigh the disadvantages. Those who object A claim that ① .Although at first glance these arguments sound reasonable and appealing, they are not borne out by a careful consideration. ② .In addition, ③ . As a result, ④ .Finally, the incomparable advantages of A is that⑤ .From the above, I think A has a lot of advantages comparing with B. So ⑥ . ①反对A的理由②支持A的第一个原因并举例说明③支持A的第二个原因并举例说明④A的优势⑤支持A的第三个原因并举例说明⑥重申观点
12 Normally, A and B are the two basic ways in which people DO C. Some people like them both. Others enjoy A and still others prefer B. As far as I am concerned, I vote for the latter. There are no less than three advantages in B as rendered below:First, we can observe easily that in modern society, ① .There is another obvious advantage for B, that is ② .The third, not the last is that ③ .Only these three reasons can make a person draw the conclusion that ④ , not to mention there are more. ①提出B的第一个优势，并举例说明②提出B的第二个优势，并举例说明③提出B的第三个优势，并举例说明 ④总结观点
13 One of the difficult questions that many people are today facing across the world is whether to CHOOSE A or CHOOSE B. More and more, B is seem as the main method in DOING C. Yet there are some people who cast serious doubts on B, and who are prepared to argue with B. But I would have to say that, if I were faced with the decision, I would probably follow the contemporary trend and choose B.On one hand, they offer new ways that can serves substitutes to the traditional, basic method of DOING C. It is claimed that① . For example, ② .On the other hand, ③ . Now, ④ .Another reason that I prefer B is that⑤ . An good example of this is last month⑥ .It is obvious for us to conclude that ⑦ . ①支持B的第一个原因②举例说明原因之一③支持B的第二个原因④举例说明原因之二⑤支持B的第三个原因⑥举例说明原因之三⑦重申观点

Afterwards, I will explain my opinion about it.For A, ③ .But this also demonstrate that ④ .Moreover, ⑤ .B, on the other hand, ⑥ . For example, ⑦ .In my opinion, the advantages of B are more than those of A because B fits me better in two ways: First⑧ . Second⑨ . ①人们的第一种观点②人们的第一种观点③A的一个优势④A所隐含的劣势⑤A的一个大缺点⑥B的一个明显的优势⑦举例说明此优势⑧对我来讲，B的第一个优势⑨对我来讲，B的第二个优势
