第三部分是卡片题得延伸拓展问题。所提问题的样式大概有：对比型、分析型、原因型、总结型、解决型和展望型等。在部分，考官可能不会给考生那么多时间来阐述自己的看法，我们一般建议大家的是“keep it simple ,let it grow”；而在第三部分，考生可以和考官畅所欲言。而且，大家不妨多结合自身经历，这样就会有一种意想不到的说服和交流效果。
Question: What are the advantages to society of having more people using mass transportation?
Answer: There are many advantages to using public transportation.
First is cost. If you compare the cost of gas, parking and auto maintenance to the cost of a bus or train pass, you'll find that a monthly commuting pass is far more economical. Convenience is the next advantage: Most trains and buses run on a set schedule that you can set your commuting time around. No more roaming around looking for parking or sitting in traffic. The last thing is environment. Everyone who is taking his or her own vehicle is causing some individual pollution, and the earth does not need any extra of that. And many public transportations systems like trains or cable cars do not cause the same energy waste.
Question: Do you think that governments should control the number of private cars that are on the roads? How could this be done?
Answer: Absolutely! The reason for congestion in many major cities is attributable to the increasing number of private cars and incomplete urban public transportation systems. And some measures should be taken to cope with traffic blocks. It is suggested that the purchase and use of private cars should be discouraged. People also suggest that "congestion fees" should be levied on cars driving into the downtown areas of a city during rush hours; and more parking fees in downtown areas should be handed out. Governments will have to control the number of private cars, while spending more on public transportation infrastructure, developing and upgrading the transportation network and encouraging city residents to choose public transportation. Once this has been done, only then will we not encounter traffic jams while going to work or just traveling around.
Question: Do people in China consider cars to be status symbols?
Answer: It depends on your outlook. Of course, many people buy expensive cars (even if they can't afford it) just to show-off or project an image or wealth or importance. Those people would probably welcome the comments my friend received. However, some people feel comfortable with themselves and don’t have to prove anything to anyone but himself/herself. Some think it's a bad idea of putting a lot of money into that type of investment that can depreciate rapidly (mileage, condition...etc). Others use it as a tax write off. Just because you drive a nice car doesn't mean you are rich. It could be different priorities. You know, like someone needs to be showy, bold, or flashy; while others opt for safe, reliable, affordable and fuel efficient.
