Your friend Liz is looking for an apartment to rent. She has asked for your advice. You found the two options below.
Tell Liz about the two options using ALL of the information provided
Recommend one of the options, and
Explain why the option you chose is better than the other
Hi, Liz, I found two apartments for you. One is Highland apartments, and the other is Sunny Hills apartments. Highland apartment has only one bedroom, and it was built two years ago. It's five blocks away from the nearest public transportation. As for the Sunny Hills apartment, it has two bedrooms, and it's built thirty years ago. The nearest public transportation is just one block away.
After considering their advantages and downsides, I would recommend Highland apartment to you. You live by yourself, so I think one bedroom may meet your needs. Though the apartment is a bit far from the public transportation, I think it's a perfect chance for you to do more exercise. A ten-minute walk every day can keep you fit and healthy. Moreover, Highland apartment is quite new. You don't have to deal with problems hidden in old houses. Therefore, I think Highland apartment suits you better.
