Sample Answer

I live in Dehradun city which is home to many parks and gardens. The most illustrious of them, in my opinion, is a sports ground named Rajiv Gandhi International Sports Ground. It is situated on Raipur road near the center of the city and spreads over a massive area of forty thousand square meters.

The stadium is a crown jewel of Dehradun city and makes it capable to host international sports matches and championships. It is the largest multipurpose ground in the city and is the most favored place amongst fitness and sports enthusiasts. I visit it twice every day for a morning and evening jog. I also stay there for an hour after my jog on Sunday mornings to enjoy a game of badminton or basketball with my friends.

The ground is fully equipped with covered parking spaces on two sides, a cafeteria, drinking water dispensers, and an area designated for different sports such as basketball, football tennis, and badminton.

The place also has relaxing gardens with an ample number of trees and flowers. It is surrounded by a paved pathway lined with benches and evergreen trees with thick foliage at regular intervals. This pavement is ideal for walking and jogging. Such amenities make it worth a relaxing stroll in the morning or evening hours. Many health-conscious people visit this place on a daily basis for their routine exercises and playing different sports.

Sample Answer

We face tough situations many times in life where we have very less time to do any particular task. I have also come across many such incidents, mainly due to my habit of procrastination. Due to my ways of postponing things to the last possible hour, I have faced many issues when I landed in trouble. I would like to talk about an incident that occurred during my tenure as a content writer in my first job.

I used to get a fair amount of time to write articles and publish them, so I used to be at ease and confident at all times. One day my boss handed me an assignment consisting of ten articles that were to be submitted on the coming Monday, after a three day festival holiday.

Anyway, I accepted it and came back home and started working on it. Before the day ended, I had completed one article and suddenly my friend called me up to invite me for a trip to a nearby town. I agreed and postponed my work till Sunday after I returned from the trip. The outing was very enjoyable but while coming back we got late as our car broke down. However, I reached back home on Sunday evening with very less time left to complete the assignment.

I sat down without wasting any more time and started working on it. I was awake the whole night completing the work and I somehow managed to finish it in the early hours of Monday morning. It was a very close call and I cursed myself for postponing my work without any foresight. This incident led me to take a firm decision to never procrastinate my work ever again.

Describe a place you often visit with friends and family.

  • Which place is it?
  • How often do you go there?
  • What is special about this place?

Sample Answer

Every person has different hobbies and ways to pass their leisure time. People’s choices vary and can range from spending time indoors or going out to places with friends or family. There are a lot of places such as shopping complexes, movie theatres, public parks, and amusement parks that one can visit with their families for recreational purposes.

I like spending time with my family and going out to explore new places. I visit new places and mark out the ones that I want to visit again with my family. One such place that I regularly visit with my family is a beautiful spot in the open where some families come for picnics. I come here on the weekends to have a picnic with my family. It is in the outskirts of the city and can be reached after a drive through a hilly road with a lot of twists and turns. It is shadowed by a huge mountain and is nestled in its valley. The area has a large grassy ground lined with wild shrubs similar to a public park, next to a freshwater stream overlooking a hill densely populated with evergreen trees.

It is a peaceful and quiet area with a cool breeze and no noise at all times. We like sitting there for hours talking to each other, playing games, and admiring the beauty of nature and the greenery all around us.

Describe one of your grandparent’s job.

  • Where did they work?
  • What was their job about?
  • How did you feel about it?
Sample Answer

My grandparents were a few of the most interesting people I have ever met in my life and had a lot of knowledge and intriguing things to tell me about. I used to talk to them for hours on end whenever I went to visit them.

My paternal grandfather was born and brought up in Dehradun, and was the only person in my family to work for the Indian railways. He was a train guard for the Delhi-Dehradun express that used to do a round trip to and from Dehradun every two days. He was supposed to supervise the train on its journey and had a separate room in the last bogey of the train. He had his system there to keep an eye on the driver’s schedule, train’s movement, and other necessary information.

He worked for more than fifty years from 1950 to 2001 and retired when I was in second grade. He was a strict disciplinarian and was punctual in every aspect of his life. He used to reach the railway station an hour before the scheduled departure of the train. Then he tried to expedite the processes in an efficient manner in order to flag off the train exactly on its scheduled time.

He was praised and respected for his integrity and work ethics by everyone in his department, and was awarded for his excellent service record at his retirement farewell celebration. I respect him a lot and have learned many things from his character and the way he chose to live his life. He is a source of inspiration for me and I always try to follow in his footsteps.
