How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Have you ever heard of the rule of the three r's? Well if you haven't done so yet, I am going to explain it to you in a very simple way. These r's mean reduce, recycle and reuse so that we take care of the environment and the dreaded global warming reduces. The concept of reducing can be applied, for example, in supermarkets when we ask for plastic bags. The best thing in this case is to take a bag from home. On the other hand, most of the materials we use can be recycled to reduce the volume of garbage. In addition, it is very important that we reuse materials such as paper or electronic devices. If we want to live on a healthy planet in the long term, we have to pull our socks up as soon as possible and change our consumption habits.
