    Question Topic of An Essay

    Some people think that a new language should be invented for people from different countries to use for the international communication. To what extent do you think its advantages far outweigh its disadvantages?
    Hello, does the above text requests the writers to elaborate the advantage of invention of an artificial language? Can I elaborate the disadvantages of a new language outweigh its advantages? I am not clear about the meaning of the sentence I hightlighted in blue.

    Thank you.

    Hello, thedaffodils. The text is not clear about what they mean by "its," but I can tell what they want.

    The first sentence says that some people want a new language to be invented so that people from different languages can communicate with each other using the new language. (Think of languages such as Esperanto.)

    The second sentence assumes that making this new language is a good idea. It is asking you to defend the idea. You should think about the advantages (the ways in which it would be helpful) and the disadvantages (the ways in which it would be harmful). Then you should say how and why the advantages are more important than the disadvantages.
