    Hi how many marks would this be worth:
    The co2 released contributes to global warming. The sulfur dioxide released causes acid rain. The particulates of carbon cause global dimming as they reflect the sunlight back to space. The nitrogen released can also cause acid rain. The methane obtained from drilling reacts in the furnace to produce co2 which contributes to global warming. The quarrying causes animal habitats to be destroyed.
    Cheers for the help

    Please excuse me if I'm miles off, but I think this is 4/5 marks out of a possible six.

    Despite at least two of the factors from the question have been mentioned (quarrying, drilling), the explanation from the factors are relatively short, and would require another sentence per factor to bring it up to at least 5 marks.
    Make sure the answer is organised. For example, by rephrasing it to:
    Thirdly, the quarrying causes animal habitats to be destroyed BECAUSE...

    Sorry to come across as a bit bitter! Other than that, it's a great answer - lots of own knowledge.

    I would say maybe 4 marks out of 6. Like the last poster mentioned, your answer needs to be more organised. Your writing style needs to be more fluid and coherent, instead of just writing points.

    Use conjuctives and explain each point you're making. I know this isn't a post about an English essay, but for the full marks, stating a few points won't cut it. Otherwise, the answer would be pretty accurate. Maybe an AQA examiner would be lenient and give you 6 marks for it. You could've also talked about the quarrying process potentially ruining the landscape and generating dust which could settle on crops.
