Un bun exemplu de probă pentru acest nivel:

Smoking should be banned in all public places, including bars and restaurants.

Nowadays an increasing pattern of arguments may be noticed as far as smoking is concerned. Should it be banned in all public places or must it continue to be allowed? This is a controversial issue which separates people into two opposing groups: supporters and opponents of smoking.

The most significant reason for saying that smoking should be banned is the health factor. Not only the smoker, but also the people around him may damage their lungs and in the worst case suffer from lung cancer. In addition, pregnant women shouldn’t be exposed to cigarette smoke because – as Doctors say – smoke can easily damage the unborn baby, and cause it serious problems, after it is born.

Furthermore, another important reason that shows that smoking should be restricted and banned in public places is that of the discomfort it creates. Imagine a smoker entering a ‘no smoking’ bar, and all of the people around him smelling the smoke on his shirt and slowly moving away from him. In addition to the above, a smoker’s breath is very bad and a person who does not smoke will feel discomfort talking with him.

On the other hand, a majority of people state that smoking is a right that every person has, and shouldn’t be banned because that would mean violation of his human rights. Of course, tobacco industries are also against a smoking ban in public places due to well-known reasons. They will lose millions of dollars if the ban exists because the person will only smoke in his house and will not buy cigarrettes all the time.

Concluding, and taking all the above into consideration, smoking plays an integral part in many people’s lives but, as far as the ‘public’ factor is concerned we shouldn’t smoke in public places because that would mean violation of a non-smoker’s rights, whereas the smoker can choose not to if he or she wants.
