How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Last year we suffered a major drought in our town because it did not rain enough and that's why we had problems cultivating the land. Our planet is getting warmer than usual due to climate change. Some solutions to combat drought are to build water transfers to water plants, reuse wastewater or collect rainwater to use it if necessary. Our town will fight the drought and has just adopted these solutions.

How has your day been?
