If this is practice for IELTS, then you wrote far too much.

You wrote over 420 words. The minimum is 250. You will not lose points for writing more; however, longer essays generally do not get high band scores. And there are many reasons for this.

First, the longer the essay, the more chances you have to make errors, and you will lose points for each of those errors.

Second, your writing may be repetitious and wordy. This will cost you points in task response or coherence and cohesion.

Third, you will likely stray off-topic, and examiners will deduct points if you are not focused on the topic. Do not write about things that are not specifically given in the task. You will also be tempted to use weak or unsound arguments or even lose your direction and contradict yourself. Develop just two or three argument points with examples and personal experiences. It is much better to have two well-developed and fleshed-out argument points than to have four which are just individual separate statements.

Fourth, you will spend a lot of time writing, and not have sufficient time left over to proofread your essay. You will miss the silly mistakes, which everyone makes, and that lowers your score.

Fifth, you will not have enough time for Task 1, and get a lower score there. You should allow 40 minutes for task and 20 minutes for Task 1. The word counts are designed so that you have ample time for brainstorming and then writing the two parts.

Aim to write around 270 words for Task 2. Practice writing a lot of essays so you get a feeling for the length.

Thank you for your feedback.
Please tell me what would be the correct word in replace of ones in the above context.
class candle 16Please tell me what would be the correct word in replace of ones in the above context.

The word is OK; the form of the word is wrong.

One = 1. (One person.)

How can one (1) be more than one (e.g. plural)?

Teacher, I am confused. This is a sentence I have read in internet " These problems are viewed as quite marginal problems, ones that don't need to be addressed." I see the word ones used for plural meaning in this context. Please clear my confusion.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
class candle 16These problems are viewed as quite marginal problems, ones that don't need to be addressed." I see the word ones used for plural meaning in this context. Please clear my confusion.

One can be used as a pronoun to substitute for a closely preceding noun. If the object being referenced is plural, the plural form is used.

These problems are viewed as quite marginal problems, ones (refers to problems.) that don't need to be addressed."

In your essay, there is no such noun.

X When ones have more education, their chances of getting a promotion is higher.
When one (a person) has more education, their chances of getting a promotion is higher.

You can use "ones" with "the" to refer to "people". But the reference must be clear.
In this sentence, "the ones" means a subset of the group. Here are some examples:

If there are many people applying for the same position, the ones (refers to some of those people) who have more education have a higher chance of getting it.
These children walk to their public school, and the older ones (refers to some of the children) get to choose one game to play.
A roving crew of technicians will exchange dead phone batteries for new ones, (refers to batteries) if necessary.
Justin Bieber's tour is one (refers to "tour") of the most successful ones (refers to all such tours) on the road this summer.

Thank you so much.

Teacher, please explain to me why the pronoun their is used in the above sentence when one is a singular ?
