TPO-48 - Integrated Writing Task In recent years, many frog species around the world have declined in numbers or even gone extinct due to changes in their environment. These population declines and extinctions have serious consequences for the ecosystems

In the lecture, the professor argues against the three solutions in the reading passage because they are not practical.

First, it's true that reducing the pesticides might benefit the frogs, but such strict laws are not economically practical and not fair for the farmers that rely on pesticides to ensure the crops yield. If the farmers follow the rules and cease to use the pesticides, they will encounter crop loss, which is a severe advantage for the farmers. Therefore, prohibiting the farmers from using harmful pesticides is not practical.

Furthermore, there is several problems with the second solution to treat each infected frogs. On one hand, treating each individuals can be very difficult, because there are a huge amount of the infected frogs. On the other hand, there is no guarantee that the fungus would not pass from one frog to another, so the treating process has to be applied many times, which is too expensive to execute. So, the second solution to cure the infected frogs one by one is neither practical.

Last but not the least, the third solution argues to protect the water and wertland habitats so that the frogs can be secured. However, it is the global warming instead of the use of water that results into habitat loss. Along with the global warming, many water lands has been threatened and many species are extinct, so protecting the key water habitats from excessive water use will not server to slow down the global waring and thus can't ensure the safety of water habits and the species living in these locations. So, the third solution is also impractical because of the wrong cause-and-effect analysis.

In conclusion, according the analysis in the lecture, the three methods proposed by the reading passage are not practical to alleviate or prevent the decline of the frogs population.
