Sample Answer One by Paramdeep Kaur

It is said that a home is the reflection of its inhabitants. In the quest of keeping it as beautiful and comfortable as possible, we all keep collecting showpieces, furniture and furnishings etc. Although, there are many things which are dear to me, I’ll like to talk here about my dining table which I purchased from Kashmir.
It is a four-seater rectangular dining table made of walnut wood. The entire table top is carved intricately by hand. The motifs are primarily composed of maple leaves which signify the maple trees of Kashmir. It is a masterpiece of brilliant craftsmanship as everything is painstakingly made by hand. What makes it stand apart is that not even an inch of the table surface is left without carving. The whole surface is polished in natural wood color after which it has been varnished to impart it a shine. We have covered it by a glass top which besides enhancing its beauty also protects it from dust. The table has four matching dining chairs which make it perfect for our family of four members.
I am extremely fond of this dining table as it reminds me of the lovely time we spent in the most splendid Kashmir valley. Also, it is a unique piece of furniture which is not commonly available everywhere

Sample Answer Two by Pooja

My house is fully equipped with indoor and outdoor furniture. Today, I’m going to talk about my study table.
This table is in my bedroom. It’s a brand new piece of furniture and is probably very expensive. It’s a large table with two shelves to keep books. It has a separate drawer for keeping a laptop and small electronic devices. It even incorporates an inbuilt LED bulb for late night reading. I don’t exactly know what material it is made of but I think it’s made of oak.
I received it as a present from my parents on my last birthday. My mum is very selective. She must have visited many furniture showrooms before buying this modern, unique piece of furniture for my room.
I love the design of this table. It’s just perfect. It has transformed the appearance of my room. In fact, this table has made me more organized. Everyone who visits me appreciates the table for its brilliant quality. They even ask about the place from where it was bought. At this point of time, I can say that I’ll keep this table for my life. Even if I move to a new place, I’ll get it transported carefully.

IELTS Essay: International committee to reduce the use of fossil fuels - agree/disagree? IELTS BAND7 DEHRADUN

Sample Answer:

Fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas are the primary source of energy in the world. These fuels have fuelled almost all major industries and economies across the globe. Sadly, there are no international rules to control the amount of fossil fuels used in any region of the world. Many experts have proposed the formation of an international board to address this issue. I strongly agree with this view.

To begin with, the world has overused fossil fuels without paying attention to their detrimental effects on our natural environment. Global warming and soaring air pollution levels have become a threat to our planet and our existence. All nations are experiencing a change in their climate. Their citizens are suffering from diseases caused by hazardous air pollutants. Unquestionably, these are international problems and resolving them is beyond the capacity of any one nation.

Furthermore, the reservoirs of coal, crude oil and natural gas are depleting at a rate faster than ever before. The day when these sources will not be able to support us is not very far. In fact, declining production levels have already weakened the economies of some major oil producing countries. Other countries are also witnessing an economic downturn. The situation is alarming.

Definitely, the way forward is global co-operation. An international panel is needed to resolve the problems caused by excessive consumption of oil, gas and other similar fuels. Economists and environmentalists should form the main body of the committee. Strict rules about the use of fossil fuels must be enforced in all countries irrespective of their economic position. In addition, the committee should focus on the research and development of sustainable means of energy.

To conclude, the unquenched thirst for development and the rise in the global population have exacerbated immense pressure on fossil fuels. Personally, I believe that sincere efforts at a global level are required to mitigate the problems that excessive exploitation of non-renewable fuels has caused.

Sample Answer:

In this fast-paced world where more and more people are turning to online shopping, open-air markets seem to have lost their popularity. But, I come from a small town in which such markets are still quite popular. Today, I am going to talk about a well-known bazaar that I loved visiting.
It is called Sunday Market. Every weekend local shopkeepers set up their stalls in a huge ground that covers an area of about 4 square kilometers, making it one of the biggest open-air markets in my state, Punjab. This place has a lot to offer to shoppers. The main items sold in the market include traditional seasonal clothes, shoes, utensils, bed sheets, duvets and blankets etc. Some stalls sell fresh fruits, pulses, spices, herbs and vegetables as well.
I visited this market last year. I felt that it was a great place to shop at. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming there. Not only the products were of high quality but their prices were very reasonable too. There was plenty of space for people to walk and shop. This matters a lot in my country because some markets can be overcrowded at times, making it almost impossible to move.
Normally, buyers in open-air markets don’t have the privilege to return any purchased items, but to my surprise, shopkeepers were encouraging people to buy what they wanted and return it later if there was a problem. The best thing about this market was that the facilities such as toilets and car-parking were well-maintained. All in all, this market had everything which customers require. (263 Words)

leisure activities by males and females in the USA

Sample Answer:

The bar graph compares the amount of time men and women expended every day in different leisure and sports activities in America in 2014.
One striking feature of the chart is that watching TV was the favorite free time activity for both the genders. On average, males spent 3 hours daily in front of their TV sets while women spent 2.6 hours. Socializing and interacting with family and friends was the next most preferred form of recreation. Both men and women spent 0.7 hours per day on this activity.
Leisure activities, sports, exercise and using electronic devices like computers were more popular among males. On the other hand, the opposite was true for reading as females expended 0.4 hours daily on this activity whereas men spent merely 0.3 hours. Interestingly, thinking or relaxing were equally popular among both sexes. This form of entertainment accounted for 0.3 hours daily for both men and women.
Overall, there were minor differences in the amounts of times males and females spent in different leisure and sport activities but watching TV was the activity which occupied the most time. (184 Words.)
