    Hi Mxwotm8, and welcome to the forum.
    We cannot do your homework for you. We also do not write essays for people.
    What we can do is look at texts you submit to the forum and try and help you with those (provided they are not homework).

    If you meant something else, please post below.

    Are you having trouble understanding the questions? We can't help you with homework; you must do this task yourself.

    If you're doing this for your own practice, I suggest you try doing one of those tasks and post your text in a new thread. That'll give us an idea of your level and capabilities, and we might be able to point our some helpful hints to you.

    Re: [Composition] Tips and Tricks?

    It's not a question of tips and tricks. You can't, despite what some say on the internet, simply ace a task by following some basic rules. These are quite long pieces of writing, and they will be looking carefully at how complete and relevant your answer is. Is your answer to the first structured as a speech? Does the language used suit the occasion? With long pieces like this, they will be looking at how the text flows and connects- how you move from one point to another, especially in the second.
