- Firstly, jobs are more available in big cities.
- Secondly, living in big cities is a lot more interesting and fun.

All members of our group think that rural life is better than urban life.
- We all agree that the cost of living is much cheaper in rural areas.
- People are also more friendly and helpful.
- We can live in an environment with little or no pollution.
In addition, the crime rate is fairly low compared to the city.
The only problem is that people have little access to modern facilities and technology.
-> It is important that the government invest more in rural areas so that people there can have the same opportunities as people in the cities.
