  21. Describe one way to solve air pollution.
  Personally, to solve air pollution problem we need to analyze the cause of such a problem, actually, vehicle emission and poisonous gas discharged by factories are major factors causing the air pollution. I would say one possible solution is that
  the government should put forward some policies to punish factories who discharge lots of waste into the air, for example, they can impose a heavy tax on these factories. Plus, they can subsidize the environment conscious companies that use renewable energies like natural gas, wind power and nuclear power.
  22. What kind of characteristics or components should a good school have?
