Can you please grade my essay - Task 1 Integrated [#permalink] New post 10 Aug 2011, 11:27
my essay is based on this task below and I could have taken more than 20 minutes on this because the timer was off
onlinenglish(.)net/iBT/OnlinEnglish_Actual/200703_writing_1a.html

--------------------------------------------
The article discusses the topic of Mary Celeste's Mystery which talks about an abandoned ship was found in Portugal in 1872 without finding anyone dead or alive on that ship and no evidence of any damage on it. The article mentions a few possible theories that explain it. However, the professor contradicts those explanations. Thus, he casts doubts on the article's validity.

First, the reading passage mentions that there was a mutiny on the ship, and consequently was the responsible for it's drown. On the other hand, the speaker argues that the captain is an experienced professional and there was no chance that he would be tricked by a mutiny.

Second, the article gives another explanation which claims that the captain and his crew were drunk and it bases this argument on the fact that there were nine empty barrels of alcohol. Nevertheless, the lecturer again go against the article by giving evidence contradicts this claim. The captain knows how dangerous is it to drink, and therefore he would never drink while driving a ship.

Finally, the final theory given by the passage is the people whom found Mary Celeste are suspected to be the responsible. They could have killed the crew and passengers after stealing many valuable things. Nevertheless, the professor says that those people didn't take anything from the ship even their personal belongings and also there were no evidence for that claim. Hence, the passage again fails to explain the mystery.

In conclusion, the article mentions several explanations to the mystery of Mary Celeste. However, the lecturer goes against every claim and casts doubts on it's validity. Therefore, we can safely assume that the passage's theories fails to explain the mystery.
