Chapter 24: Journal Writing Activity

Read the scenario below. Write your responses to the questions that follow.

You really want to buy a new car, but when planning your budget, you find that you cannot afford the car you want. You can afford a used car, but it will need some costly repairs within the next few years. Bus fare is inexpensive, and you could continue to save for the car you want. However, you think the bus is crowded and uncomfortable. You could take the train, which is slightly more expensive than the bus, but you would have to be dropped off at the station much earlier than needed.
