Ответ на задание 38:

It is hard to underestimate the role of literature in our life. My project which I am still working on is aimed at analyzing why people in Zetland should study literature. I have found some data on this issue presented in the pie chart.

According to the pie chart, I can say that 22% of the respondents chose the answer to escape from daily routine. 18% consider that people should study literature to learn about the past.

The most popular reason for studying literature is to widen horizons while the least popular is to discuss books with friends. New facts and interesting stories that we know due to books allow us to be interesting people and we can easily start the conversation. Nevertheless, people rarely discuss books with each other because tastes differ. There are too many various genres, authors in literature nowadays.

Analysing the data, I can outline the following problem that one can face studying literature. Books of good quality cost too much money. Paper books cost several thousand of rubles and e-books cost much money too. People may download illegal versions of these books but the quality of typing is too poor. To solve this problem, I consider that government should create a website with free literature: not only classical but with literature of modern writers and books in different fields of sciences.

To conclude, I suppose that the studying literature is very important. It helps people to be well-educated, sociable persons. It gives new opportunities for their jobs and professions. (254 слова)
