Information Report (Orang-utan) by Johanna Lim Ziyun

After reading the article, answer the following questions:
1) How are the text features different?
The text features are different as the National Geographic webpage's organisation feature is categorical while the Singapore Zoo's webpage feature is illustrative. The National Geographic's content mainly explains about the Orang-utan (history, weight, type of mammal and how they survive etc) while the Singapore Zoo revolves mainly on the place itself, promoting the place so that other citizens will be attracted to go take a look. The Singapore Zoo also features Orang-utans but it is not as in-depth as the one on National Geographic.

2) What are some examples of information you can find on the National Geographic webpage but not on the Singapore Zoo webpage?
The examples of information that can be found on the National Geographic webpage are the details of the Orang-utan (how it looks like, its history etc), where Orang-utans can be found, how they sound like and their diet. It also shows where their natural habitat is.

3) Which report appeals to you more? Why?
The Singapore Zoo's webpage has more pictures concerning Orang-utans and that captures my attention. As I read on, the webpage lets me play a part in it as it showcases the amazing places they have in store for us. They also give pictures to depict the scenes instead of just asking us to read them. They put our interests at heart and gives us a chance to be part of it.

The National Geographic webpage just shows one picture of how an orang-utan looks like and the rest is all words. They give very detailed information but there are no pictures to capture the audience's attention. The details include the history of Orang-utans, where they live etcetera. If I were to research on Orang-utans, the National Geographic page would be better as it gives us more information on it.

Thus, the National Geographic webpage is better.
