Model Answer 1:

Well, you know, the city of Beijing has become infamous for its heavy smog, which is thought to lead to widespread illness and discomfort. But In recent months, air pollution has droppedsignificantly, and jokes about Beijing’s pollution have given way to surprised expressions about the lovely weather. So nowadays, I could enjoy more white cloud and blue skies this year.

Beijing had been badly polluted by the toxic industrial exhaust and chemicals, making the whole city unliveable. But nowadays, thanks to the strict pollution control policy, more coal-fired power plants and factories have been closed in the neighbouring province, and petrol quality has been improved as well. Therefore, though pollution might still persist for a long time in Beijing, we could enjoy more fresh air in the city.

Since the weather surprisingly turns excellent, my friends and I are in the habit of taking pictures of blue sky with mobile phones, and sharing them in the social media. And I’m more keen on doing outdoor activities with my child to enjoy the warm sunshine and clean air.
