How the test works

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

Could you explain the concept of set design? This applies to the technique of design and decoration of scenic spaces which make it possible to realistically visualise a place where the action takes place. Set design is also defined as the collection of elements that include the lighting, the characterisation of the characters, the set and props. If all these elements were not used correctly, the public would not experience emotions and the performances would be monotonous. To make the set design a success, its items have to be arranged within a context. Now you will pay more attention when you watch television or a play.

Clever stuff underway!
