100 years ago, it was felt that the human race was making progress in all areas of life. Nowadays, there is less certainty that this is the case.
In what areas do you think that the most progress has been made so far?
In what area are more things needed to be done?

Mankind has witnessed development in most or all areas of life until the beginning of 1900s. Today, there is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to improvements in certain areas of life. This essay will discuss the most progressive areas and highlight some of the lesser developed ones.
Technology has seen the best advancements of this generation. World connectivity is at its peak due to the developments being made in this sector. As a result, we get to experience things like virtual reality which is another form of tech genius. Furthermore, shopping is one other area which has seen great transitions compared to before. Introduction to online shopping is a blessing for many in the 21st century as people can buy anything in the convenience of their homes. Gone are the days of Brick-and-Mortar shops, we live in the age of same day delivery by shopping from internet giants like Amazon.
On the contrary, parts of the same world are still fighting to eradicate poverty and child abuse for centuries. There is no appropriate support for people who don’t have access for necessities such as food, shelter and clothing around the globe despite the many advances taking place. Exploitation of children is one of the most sensitive issues that needs immediate attention but is often neglected. For instance, world renown places like Mumbai are house to the world’s biggest slum as well as witnesses the most child trafficking.
To conclude, despite the transformations in areas namely technology and online shopping, the world is still not able to get rid of major problems such as poverty and child labour or abuse. No matter how much progress takes place in the coming years, there is no certainty that human race will witness any changes in these areas.

* ‘Brick-and-Mortar’ (It’s not clear to me why the ‘B’ and ‘M’ had to be capitalized here. None of the sentence examples I found used it this way)
* ‘ Gone are the days of Brick-and-Mortar shops, we live in the age of same day’ ( These two clauses are completely independent and probably cannot be connected into a single sentence with a comma)
* ‘don’t have access for’ (‘access’ is usually used with ‘to’ and not ‘for’)
* ‘places like Mumbai are house to the world’s biggest slum .’ ( ‘are house to’ does not collocate well)
