Sample Answer 1

Well, I think conversations serve as a great way of exchanging ideas and sharing each other’s thoughts, so I would like to take this opportunity to talk about one of the very interesting conversations that I had with one of my closest friends.

I still remember during that time I was in my college hostel and I used to share the dormitory with my bosom friend and it was a usual weekend night and we both were tired by the week long tedious classes and never ending assignments, until Riya started sharing one of the haunting encounters, she had while she was in her grandmother’s house in the village. It was at that moment when I dropped my work and shifted my attention towards her.

The conversation got intense when she started sharing the ghost stories that we all heard growing up, from our grandparents and the room’s environment became all hushed and frightening at the same time. Although, I opposed the idea of supernatural existence and said that it is just a hoax to generate fear in the listeners mind, but she felt that ghosts are real things and not something made up to entertain folks. The conversation started getting all heated up, but, at the same time, particularly interesting one as well.

The reason why I was piqued by this conversation is because, unlike other random discussions, this one was genuinely nerve racking at the moment, and something that cannot be completely denied. Also, the experiences that she shared was eye-opening and, the chills ran down my spine. Since, then I also started believing in supernatural beings.

Conversations are the mode of sharing ideas, knowledge and feelings. I have been part of numerous conversation with my friends and family. Sometimes, the conversation get too interesting and engaging that we often lose track of the time. So, today I would like to talk about one such conversation.

I had the conversation, with my childhood friend Sri jana Rana, who lives adjacent to my house. We have many similar interest. As we both are bibliophile, so most of our discussions are about books and our genre in books is fiction. So, the conversation I will be mentioning today, was about a newly launched fictional book “The Immortals of Melhua” written by Amish Tripathi.

We both were sharing our reviews about the book and were totally blown away by it. Amish Tripathi had nicely blended mythology, historical and archeological facts in this book. The way of storytelling was mind blowing. Each chapter had something new and interesting to tell the reader. My friend is a voracious reader, she got all three books of the series and finished it within a week. She mentioned, that the book made her so restless, that she had to take a day off to finish it. Besides, books we also talk about music, movies, fashion and other trendy topics. Overall, that was the interesting conversation that I had with my friend.

  • Why you went there?
  • And explain how you feel about the place
Sample Answer

I am a hodophile and so I love to explore a lot of new places. Recently, a few weeks ago I went on a sudden unplanned trip to Varanasi which is situated in Uttar Pradesh. It is known as one of the oldest surviving cities in the civilisation of earth and has a lot to offer starting from the beautiful sunrise at Assi ghat which left me enthralled followed by the mesmerizing temples and the holy river Ganga, whereby, I sat for hours enjoying the view and indulged in some boating activity. Furthermore, the city is an architectural marvel as there still stands some of the world’s finest pieces of art on the walls of the ancient buildings like, Sarnath. After enjoying a good tour of the city, I finally got the opportunity to try out some renowned street food unique to the city itself.

I went there because one of my bosom friends, Fiza, recommended it to me as a great tourist attraction site with millions of visitors visiting it throughout the year. I really loved the place and felt that it was a wholesome experience for me as I had never been to a solo trip before. So overall this was the new place that I visited and gained a rejuvenating experience.

It is undoubtedly clear that public facilities are the services provided by the government as basic amenities to its citizens and businesses for their convenience. These may be in the form of public transport, infrastructure, sanitation or healthcare. But, sometimes people tend to take these for granted and so, it is high time that the government should start taking strict actions against these miscreants, by penalizing them with a heavy charge. Furthermore, it should also be made sure that sufficient checkpoints are established at every few miles, but most importantly, the regulating bodies like, traffic police and authorities should keep a check on those who try to harm public facilities.

Q2. What is the difference between the facilities in the countryside and the ones in the cities ?
There is undoubtedly a huge difference. First and foremost, the employment opportunities, which are scarcely available to the individuals who live in countryside areas as compared to those who live in the main cities.

Thirdly, the life in the countryside is peaceful, calm and tranquil because of the picturesque view and the absolutely soothing flora and fauna.
