SAMPLE ANSWER:

The map presents the town of Canterbury, where a new learning institution is planned to be built. There are two possible locations being considered: one is approximately northeast of the town, while the other is located in the center of Canterbury.

The first probable area, S1, is in the countryside, northeast of Canterbury. A main road leading to Sturry is nearby. If the school is built there, it will be next to the Housing area, and it will be easily accessible to the residents of the towns of Sturry and Canterbury.

The second alternative site, S2, is right in the middle of the Town Center, which, as the name implies, is at the heart of the village. Surrounding the Town Center and S2 is the Housing area.

Canterbury has 2 main roads. Just along S1, located northeast, is a road that leads to Sturry. Another highway is situated southwest of the Town Center, and this leads to Chartham. The town also has a university which is housed at the northern part of the village.
