SAMPLE ANSWER

I have many paternal and maternal cousins but I think the one person in my family that I really get along well is my brother. We have had our share of fights and ignorance in our growing years but I think over the period of time we have grown closer. His name is Mayank and is presently doing his Bachelors from a State owned university.

Mayank is a carefree yet careful child as I know him. The best part about him is that he knows which matters of life should be taken seriously and which ones should be considered in a lighter mood. This makes it so easy for us to interact because I know how he will take jokes. However, owing to his education and then my job we don’t meet very often but we do talk on phone and whenever we meet we mostly go out on rides to places we have never been.

The best part about our relationship is that we never need to hide anything from each other. Be it any of the darkest secrets or the stupidest habits that we form, we have always told each other about it and helped each other through out it. I think the only reason that we do get along with each other is because we do know each other. We know our problems and even if we don’t we are ready to go an extra mile to help each other.
