IELTS Academic Writing Task 2 Questions?

Here, we have compiled some of the frequently asked questions in the IELTS Writing Task 2 of Academic IELTS. Generally, same questions are never given in two different tests. But, often, the question is paraphrased or it is tweaked to make it more complex. The candidates are required to understand the question well and answer accordingly. Mugging up a few essays on some potential topics which you might get in the test may sound an easy way out to pass this test but alas, such approach is never appreciated.
