This is my answer to an integrated writing question of TOEFL. During this task, we are reading a passage, then listening to a related lecture and finally are asked to compare the ideas presented.
Answer:
While the reading presents some evidence in favor of Peary's claim that he successfully reached the North Pole, the lecturer believes that those evidence are not convincing.
To begin with, the speaker mentions the National Geographic Society. She thinks that the committee members have been Peary's close friends who had extensively tried to fond Peary's expedition. She adds that the investigation last only two days. Based on these facts, she comes to the conclusion that the investigation conducted by the committee was not objective. Her conclusion contradicts the reading's assertion that committee's report is reliable.
The speaker also says that Avery's expedition was different from Peary's one in a number of ways. Although these to adventurers used the same kind of dogsled, she says that Avery's one has been smaller than that of Peary because Avery didn't carry his food with him. She also says that weather condition has been much more favorable in Avery's expedition than Peary's one. In this way, she opposes the reading's assertion that Avery's expedition supports Peary's claim.
Finally, the speaker states that because Peary's photographs are taken a century ago they are so faded that cannot be used to accurately determine sun's position in the sky. In this way she disagrees with the reading's statement that these photographs are evidence that support Peary's claim.
