? The Essay Written by LELB Students

Nowadays, advertisements are proliferated in all over the world and many people believe some methods and ads are against moral codes. I personally concur with this perspective.

To begin with, some ads disturb the privacy of people. For instance, many companies send messages to peoples’ cell phone without any permission and it is not moral and people have to tolerate some notifications. Moreover, in some ads, the manufacturers try to exaggerate the quality of their products which leads to misleading. Another example which casts light on this issue is that advertising for cigarettes and alcoholic drinks is immoral because it jeopardizes public health.


✅ Error Correction:

  • Line 1: Proliferate is an intransitive verb. So, “advertisements proliferate all over the globe.”
  • Line 3: Better to add the noun modifier, “spam” before “messages” ➡ spam messages.
  • Line 4: ❌ peoples’ cell phone ✅ people’s cellphones
  • Line 5: Notifications ➡ spam text messages
  • Line 6: leads to misleading ➡ which is misleading
