1. Is it hard to find quiet places in cities?
I think it is hard to find quiet places in the city. It is always loud no matter what time of the day with people and cars. I always find the city extremely loud compared to my home in the country.

2.Why is it quieter in the countryside?
Because the houses are much more spaced out and a lot more land in between residences. There are a lot less people in a condensed area meaning less noise when people are travelling. A lot less buildings and shops as well, there is a lot less traffic coming to and fro.

4.Compared with young people, do old people prefer to live in quiet places?
Young people are a lot more livelier than old people, they want to live out their youth in a loud and busy place, always on the go. Old people have lived their working lives and want to find comfort and peace away from the loud city once they have retired.
