Model Answer 1:
Mr Yushuki Kawatara is an emerging scientist in Hong Kong. He is reputed for inventing alternative energy for using for various purposes. He is not famous like the other scientist of the world as he does not want to be celebrated. I will describe him now and thank you for asking me the question.

We need energy in our everyday life. On the other side, we need to pay for the energy we are consuming. Often the bills are more than our expectation. So, an alternative source of energy is the best solution which will reduce the cost and at the same time will provide a continuous support to the users. The invention of Mr Yushuki Kawatara is able to provide a long and continuous support and at the same time, the technology is less expensive. His experiments are in initial level but have become successful. As a result, we are expecting something special from his side.

Mr Yushuki Kawatara mostly researches on renewable energy. The concept is nothing new but has many aspects to explore. Solar energy is one of the renewable sources. It could be used for many times and in fact, it will not finish soon. So, this is a potential source of energy that humans can utilise for their daily use. But the issue is a bit complex and not accessible for all. So, he is trying to invent something different than the usual methods. Using sunlight for the source of energy has become older in the present days. So, he tried to invent the methods of creating energy using water. Water is available everywhere and accessible for all. Besides, if he becomes completely successful, everyone could be able to set an energy depot at their home for a minimal cost.

I came to know about him as he lives in the same locality where I live in the city. I love to live in a calm atmosphere and so my residence is in a corner. Mr Yushuki Kawatara is also a peace-loving man. He does not like to live in crowd and noise. So, he also selected the same area for his residence. Besides, it is a must to have a quiet place or deep research and invention. However, I met him one day when a friend of mine took me to his home for some purposes. It was my first meeting with him. Then gradually I came to know that he was a scientist and trying to invent something for the people. Initially, he did not want to disclose his invention but later, being confirmed about my identity, not as a journalist, he told about the invention.

I think he is a creative person. There are many logics to support my thought. He is creative in the sense that he is trying to invent something very special from the usual elements available in nature. Besides, he is not like the other scientists who want to expose themselves by inventing minor issues. He always wants to hide himself and avoids confronting media. As a result, he is not that much celebrated except his familiar people. His intelligence level is higher than any other ordinary people. I had no doubt about his creativeness when I had talks with him for the first time. I inquired about a lot of things and he answered smartly against all of the questions.



Model Answer 2:
This is the age of invention and a good number of the inventors are around us. Many of them are famous for their extraordinary contribution to science and technological advancement. Mr. Richmond Travolta is one of them and you might have heard his name. He is a scientist who is conducting research on solar energy to make it more affordable to ordinary people. Thank you for your question and I will describe it now in brief.

Mr. Richmond is half British and half American. He was born in the USA and now has shifted to the UK. In fact, he was not feeling comfortable in the USA and wanted to be with his maternal family residing in the UK. So, he is now a professor of science at a reputed UK university and by the same time is conducting his research with government funds. It is expected that he will soon invent something newer which would prove beneficial for the world population.

Actually, he is a professor and a man of letters. He had an enriched career and now living in London.  Now he is having a very busy time with the academic activities at the university and research at his home. He lives in a large house near Greenwich and has set his laboratory at the underground level of the house. But the house is architecturally a beauty and represents the Victorian Era. Besides, he also loves to take part in social and cultural activities. Sometimes he is made as the chief guest in some of the local events. He is engaged in the research in most of the times and sleeps less than the ordinary people. In fact, inventing the intended thing is his goal in life now. 

Mr. Richmond is a very familiar figure in this locality I live in. He is a living legend. He has a large list of contribution in the field of science and technology. Moreover, he is also known for his maternal heritage. The most important thing that has played a role in his popularity in the area is his international reputation. Often he is cited in various television channels and media which has brought a fame for him and the area he is living in. I had some experience to meet with him personally. In fact, I went to meet him with some other group members. We run a cultural group here and work with the school-going kids. This is a platform for them to express their latent talents. We went to meet Mr. Richmond to make him as chief guest at the annual function of the group.

It should be admitted that Mr. Richmond is a born genius. He is skilled in mathematical issues. Besides, he is humble and never takes the slightest pride in his skills and expertise. He leads a very simple life but he has developed a strong personality. He is kind and tries to support his local sociocultural organisations. It is expected that he would complete the existing project of solar energy by June of this year. A lot of expectations are on the wind with the completion of this project. This would be another milestone for this genius scientist cum researcher. He has some other plans to execute once he is done with the solar energy project. Actually, he has succeeded in almost all the projects he launched and people got benefitted with them greatly. So, everyone is wishing him success.
