Writing the Introduction (Task 2)

After discussing how to write the introduction for Task 1 here, let us see how to write an introduction for Task 2.

Although there is nothing better than an introduction which is creative and which uses good vocabulary words or even starts with a phrase, sometimes many of us struggle for writing the opening words.
In such a case too, few principles from Task 1's introduction writing are followed.

If you face difficulties in writing the introduction, simply paraphrase the general statement already given in the question and add one line from your own side.
Consider the following example,

With advancements in medical inventions, the average life expectancy is increasing. Does this help the elderly or do they become a burden on themselves and others?

What is your opinion?

Sample Introduction: With the boon in medical science, the average human life span has increased and the mortality rate has decreased. This has benefited the elderly tremendously, but whether they are a burden on themselves or others is still a debatable topic.

Let us understand the introduction now.
1. "With the boon in medical science, the average human life span has increased..." - Here I have conveyed the same thought as that of the question but changed the wording a bit.
2. "and the mortality rate has decreased..." - This is an extra point which I included in the introduction.
3.  "This has benefited the elderly tremendously..." - Here I have already answered the question partially.
4. "but whether they are a burden on themselves or others is still a debatable topic." - A standard line; Can be used as the last line for any Task 2 introduction. Simply start with 'but' then continue with the statement of the question and then add the words 'is still a debatable topic'
