Give a specific example to support one of your reasons. This example may come from your own experience, your observations, or your reading (You may use an example from " All Summer in a Day ."). Answer: In general people discriminate somebody when they feel better than the others, the act of discrimination is usually made by arrogant people. For example political discrimination is done by people who think that they are right and other are not concerning the welfare of a country, also religious discrimination is based on thinking that your religion is the right religion while others are not following the right path. In Egypt the Brotherhood of the Muslims suffered discrimination from Mubarak’s regimen, while in Germany Jews suffered discrimination from Christians in the old times. Another example of discrimination is racial discrimination based on skin color the black people in America and Europe suffered a lot of that in old times.

Consider how the other children are being deprived because of their life on Venus and how they, like Margot, will feel their deprivation now that they know what sunshine is like. Which do you think is more important, the parents’ careers or their daughter’s well-being? Answer: The children suffer deprivation as they knew how they felt about the sun I suppose that they would feel so guilty for the rest of their lives, I also believe that they would try to make Margot forgive them, They might as well ask their families to move back to Earth, in my opinion a daughter’s life is more important than anybody’s career.
