We have different opinion (opinions) on this matter. About 70% of us think our parents

Passage 2

Nowadays, food waste is becoming seriously (serious) in China. To show their hospitality in
interpersonal communication, some customers ordered (order) far more than what is enough,
cause (causing) much food to be untouched and thrown away.

What is even more unbearable lie (lies) in the fact that banquets at public expenses cost the
reputation of our government as well as a huge number (amount/quantity) of money. The money
could have actually been spent helping those which (who) are in need. Consequently, such waste
really makes people be disappointed and depressed.

To our delighted (delight), as a nationwide campaign against waste at the dining table has
(been) launched,” Clear the Plates” is gaining more acceptance and support. Therefore, the
nation’s “Clear the Plates” is most likely to become a (the) mainstream idea of hospitality through
everyone’s efforts.
