IELTS essay questions fall into 3 categories: opinion, no opinion, and _______.

A question that adds, "Which view do you think is stronger?" is equivalent to a question that asks, "_______."

Regardless of the type of question, every essay must have an introduction, body, and conclusion.

A task that asks for possible solutions to a problem is essentially asking for the writer's opinion.

"Some people take a year off after high school before they go to college. Others go right to college and graduate earlier. Which approach do you think is better? Why?"

This is a(n) _______ type question.

If an essay asks you to compare two views, it's fine to look at the pros and cons of one view only.

Creating a template answer that applies to any question is a good strategy.

Regardless of essay type, you should always include a thesis statement.

Which of the following is a hybrid?

You should never present the thesis statement using the pronoun 'I' or 'my'.

Thank you teacher!
I have a little trouble on question 9. Why not choose A? Is it not a comprasion about pros and cons and then give my own solution?
Another: Are there any problems about what I say? Such as grammer vocabulary. It’s my first time to ask question, thank you again.

The lesson is OK (as usual; thanks, Adam), but the quizz is full of unclear or ambiguous questions. I usually succeed but in this quizz I’ve got a 6/10 :-(

Thank you Adam, I think if I read previous tests the idea will be much clearer, there is one point I didn’t get it though, in the test below the video, question 9, the correct answer was the second choice while the first choice was exactly as you described under the Hybrid type.. I even rewatched the video again but I’m still confused.
