Hortatory exposition test:
Read the text and answer the question
I am the communication officer of a wildlife protection organization in Indonesia. With the support of members across Indonesia, our organization is working to save wildlife through campaigns, education programs, investigation and animal rescue. I would like to draw the Jakarta Post readers’ attention to the frequent abuse of domesticated and wildlife animals by a number of national television stations. It seems to have a new trend to include animals on TV shows. In Trans TV’s, Happy Family, a game show involving celebrities and their mothers, animals (including cats, mice, house lizards, snakes and many more) are often used. These animals are used to frighten people, for example celebrities animals at their mothers. Similar abuse occurs on a candid camera type show that has often used animals (crocodile, turkey, long-tailed monkey, etc) to frighten people. On Trans, Empat Mata, used a slat water crocodile. This is a protected species and its use violates Indonesian law. Please readers, send letter to Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI), demanding KPI warn television stations to stop using animals, especially protected species.
