7. Doyou think cities are suitable places for keeping pets?
Well, it depends on the kind of pets you are talking about. I suppose withhouses in cities so close to each other, keeping pets like cows or other big ones is not possible, as theyrequireenough space to run around. But for the onessmaller in size like dog, cat or fishes, it is completely feasibleand one should definitely go for them.
require enough space to run around 需要足够的空间来跑动
it is completely feasible 完全是可行的
go for sth 选择做某事(养宠物)
本题题干中的关键词为pets，在答题过程中需要注意避免重复。例如在该题中，作为pets的替代词，使用的表达为other big ones // the ones smaller in size来进行替换，有效避免了重复。
8. If you have children in the future, will you allow them to raise a pet?
Yes, definitely.There are a number of reasons, but I think themost important one is having a pet is like having a comforting companion.They can cheer my kids up when they feel frustrated or not in the mood.Learning how to take care of a pet can also teach them about responsibility andunconditional affection.
a comfortingcompanion 宜人的伴侣
feel frustrated ornot in the mood 感到受挫/心情不好
unconditional affection无条件的喜爱 (affection可以作为love的替代词)
9. Comparedwith the past, is there any changes concerning pets in your country/ hometown?
I suppose the only change I can think of is that thenumber of homes that have pets has increased. Also, there are many people whohave started adopting the stray dogs and cats, instead of buyingthem from a breeder.
the stray dogs andcats 流浪猫狗
在列举观点/变化/优缺点的题型中，如果只想单一展开一个切入点，进行细节描述，有个很好的方法就是这个句型：the only change I can think of is that…
另外本回答中有个延长句子的词组instead of…，暗含了优劣的取舍关系，相似的表达有rather than… // not… but…
