Q: Some people believe that nowadays we have too many choices. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?



A: In modern life, many people believe that over choice is becoming a phenomenon, posing some troubles. I completely agree with this opinion.


There are two main areas of modern life where people are faced with a range of options that is bewildering, rather than helpful. The first is consumer purchases. With the aim to meet our demands, manufacturers provide us with excessive selections of products. As a result, we often spend considerable time choosing between similar products, when in fact we might be reasonably happy with any of them. For example, we often spend a whole afternoon on the shopping websites only for a pair of shoes, feeling exhausted rather than satisfied at last.


Information overload is another pattern of over choice I want to mention. In the digital age, there is always too much information so readily available, killing our time, leaving us nothing but being spiritually empty. Information producer keeps pushing 'Breaking News' 24/7 for the sake of consumers' clicks. However, most of the news is hardly relevant to us and can never solve any practical problems. For instance, it is so usual to find our phones overwhelmed by numerous disturbing and meaningless notifications, especially entertainment gossips.


However, more choices do benefit human beings under some circumstances. With more selections of goods and services for daily use, people improve the quality of life. For example, unlike in the old days when we had no choices but to eat an unchanged meal, now we can fully satisfy our appetite due to the availability of increasing types of food. While when the options became exorbitant, troubles come behind.


In conclusion, I believe that excessive choices are more a hindrance instead of a help, these unfiltered selections waste our time and attention.

In conclusion, I believe that excessive choices are more a hindrance instead of a help, (comma splice error) these unfiltered selections waste our time and attention.
