It is sometimes argued that traditional newspapers have become less vital these days as people are gradually used to accessing updated online news on the Internet. While the advancement of technology has influenced the habit of reading newspapers, I strongly agree that both physical and e-news have their merits.
On one hand, there are a variety of justifications that newspapers always play an essential role in our daily life. First of all, reading printed newspapers is a familiar activity that the elderly usually do in the morning. Instead of using smart devices such as phones or tablets to search for information, elderly people get accustomed to holding and reading newspapers. This kind of action also reduces the percentage of being near-sighted owing to the high energy visible light from electronic gadgets. Another rationale behind the importance of physical newspapers is preserving our culture. For instance, there are such a lot of informative articles about ancient traditions and customs that tell readers about the origins and histories of traditional rituals.
On the other hand, internet-based news also has its own advantages. Thanks to the development of technology, news is being accessed easily and conveniently. Just with a mobile phone, people can immediately explore the whole world through surfing datas on social media. In other words, online news is also a huge source of knowledge that readers would love to find for anything without costing money. The biggest reason why people should superiorly connect to electronic news is due to its eco-friendliness. Rather than cutting down more trees for printed newspapers, reading internet-based news remains a better choice.
In conclusion, physical and e-news stay in balance with both good and bad sides.

It is sometimes argued that
traditional printed newspapers have become less vital these days as people are gradually becoming used to accessing updated online (Online and Internet mean the same thing. Don't use redundant words.) news on the Internet. While the advancement of technology (That is not a good phrase. It is too vague and general. Nuclear power and spacecraft engineering are technologies!) increased adoption of the internet and computing technology has influenced the habit of reading newspapers , I strongly agree that both physical and e-news have their merits.
Oh, dear me. You are writing the wrong essay type. This is NOT an advantages/ disadvantages essay.
You did not answer the essay prompt. That will not do at all. The examiner is looking for an answer to this question: To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Body paragraph #1: Give the first reason for your opinion.
Body paragraph #2: Give the second reason for your opinion.
You answered the prompt: Do you agree or disagree that both views are valid?
It is good to know a good handful of adverbs of extent because this is a very common prompt in IELTS Task 2 essays.
Complete agreement / disagreement:
with no reservations
with no hesitation
Partial agreement / disagreement:
to some extent / to a limited extent / to a point
with (some / certain / a few) reservations
