advertisements raise the hopes of the people regarding a particular product or service but they feel disappointed when the product does not turn up to their expectations. They may feel that it is their fault as they have not chosen wisely and they also regret that we should have chosen something else. Huge amount of advertising leads to a complete inability to choose in some people. 3) Advertisers use many methods to grab the attention of the people and convey their message. Attentions grabbing words or provocative pictures are used in posters. Some advertisements even convey their message through what appears to be public information or a piece of art. In such cases people don’t even realize that they have been subjected to marketing. Such advertisements target the unconscious mind of the people and take away the freedom to make choices. 4) Some advertisements not only advertise products but also try to make the people who don’t have such product feel inferior. The perceptions of fashion and beauty have particularly been distorted by such advertisements. A lot of youngsters are suffering from low self-esteem or an unhealthy lifestyle because they feel that they should have been slimmer of more attractive like the models that will see in the advertisements. 5) Some advertisements give an impression especially to children that they should possess everything that they want to. People lose their values of hard work, patience and moderation and become obsessed and selfish with their possessions. It has an adverse effect on relationships and the personal development of individuals which in turn affects the whole society adversely. 6) Advertisements only care about profit and the welfare of society is not a consideration for the advertisers. Therefore we see advertisements about harmful and unhealthy products. The rising number of obese children could partly be attributed to the large number of advertisements regarding fast food. Such advertisements do not care about the health of the children and make them eat as much fast food as they can. 7) Advertisements provide an unfair advantage large companies and small businesses are not able to provide information regarding their products to large

number of people even though they may have better products. They way, customers are not able to find out about all the choices available to them and it results in restricting the quality of products for the customers. C) Points Against of the Topic: 1) The large numbers of advertisements that we see everywhere are a significant part of the income of many people. Several sports are benefited by advertisements as many teams are sponsored by advertisers. Nobody is going to look at advertisements and those who do not want to see them can simply ignore them.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
