|Identification of key points:||4.8||5|
|Comments:||You have a very clear and logical constructive, reasonable examples, and reliable sources. Also, the rebuttal speech of the identity of predator was really amazing, it perfectly answered the point provided by your opponent. In your closing, I am also impressed by the point you made that animals in zoos need meat, and these meat are from the wild. It is a great debate, and I have some suggestions. In the part of rebuttals, you mentioned that animals are not having enough food in zoos, it would be more reliable if you could provide some data. And I found you spent much time on hitting back your opponent's point, maybe expanding more on your own key points.||You have a convincing constructive, it is impressive that you clerify your points from 5 key points. Especially the point of the relationship betweeen predators and preys, it is a innovative angle to start your arguments. Also, in your rebuttal, you provide reliable sources to supoort your arguments. You've done a great job, and I have some suggestuions to share with you. In your rebuttal, you expand much on your own argument, enhancing youe points that the government shouldn't ban animai entertainment. I think it would be better if you could provide some points to hit back your opponent.|
The decision is for the Proposition: Zachary Powell
Reason for Decision:
It is a hard decision, both Zachary and Anya have done a great job! After watching your videos again, I decide to vote on the proposition Zachary Powell. Both of your have nice constructives, they are logical and convincing. However, in the parts of rebuttals and closings, the proposition has a good angle to argue those points provieded by the opposition, and the opposition might need to do the same.
