九月份截止今日已经举行了三场考试，就大作文而言题目都可谓是简单至极。其中关于“禁止极限运动”的题目2022年8月刚刚考过。而“unpaid community service”和“purposes of education”的讨论更是考试的常客。因为这几道题都是题库中的“老演员”了，所以接下来10月份的大作文预测没有调整，仍然按照之间的预测题目准备即可。

It is depicted in this line chart how numbers of tourists who visited a certain Caribbean island had changed in 7 years between 2010 and 2017. The figures in this graph (measured in the millions) are sorted into three categories (visitors staying on cruise ships, visitors staying on island, and the total number).
Primarily, the total number of visitors had constantly increased from 1.0 to 2.7 million in the first 5 years, and then it remained stable for one year. Finally, the last year witnessed a noticeable sudden growth to its peak at 3.5 million.
Besides, in terms of the number of tourists who stayed on island, after the first year’s stability at 0.7 million it grew up rapidly to 1.5 million in 2013, and thereafter a two-year’s plateau emerged, followed by a slight decline and a moderate recovery. By contrast, the number of travelers staying on cruise ships showed a different but simpler trend. Despite the initial fluctuation over the first two years, it continuously rose up, with a starting figure at 0.3 million in 2012 and peaking at 2.0 million in 2017. It overtook and then outnumbered the number of those staying on island after 2015.
To sum up, over the 7 years period, both the numbers of tourists staying on island and on cruise ships were generally on the increase, so the total number correspondingly ascended throughout this period.
The working theory of utilizing geothermal energy to produce electricity is demonstrated by this flow chart.
Initially, cold water will be pumped into the injection well, which is underground at the depth of around 4.5 kilometers. After being injected, cold water will flow through the geothermal zone, where it will be heated by hot rocks. After becoming hot water, it will be kept in the production well. Thereafter, through pipes, the hot water will be pumped again up to a condenser on the ground.
Then, the hot water in this condenser will emit steam with high temperature. Being powered by the steam, the turbine begins spinning. Subsequently, the generator will be driven by the spinning turbine, thus producing electricity. Thereafter, the electricity from the generator will be transported to the grid for all users.
To sum up, the flow chart reveals how geothermal energy is used for generating electricity in five sequential stages. During the whole process, cold water will be heated and release steam which is able to power the generator. This is how the whole process functions.
