The Independent Writing task of the Toefl IBT requires the candidate
talk about a topic,
say if they agree or disagree with a statement,
choose the best alternative to allocate resources.
The text should take a four or five paragraph format of an introduction, body and conclusion in no more than 300 words.
The conclusion summarizes the ideas presented in the text.
With that in mind, here is a reverse task, identify
- the thesis statement
- a topic sentence
- a reason and/or example
- a conclusion
