Should a country’s government tell its citizens how many children they can have?
A. Sample Answer
I think governments should tell their citizens how many children to have. To begin with, there are too many people on the Earth. The Earth now has over seven billion people and we simply do not have enough natural resources to feed, clothe, and raise more people. If we continue to have more and more children, a lot of people will starve to death. In addition, if a government sets up this policy, then we can live more comfortably. We will be able to live in larger homes instead of cramped apartments in the cities. For these reasons, I think that governments, like China, should do almost everything they can to limit the number of children people have.
