Model Answer 1:
I have been really lucky to have a number of friends, relatives, acquaintances and co-workers who are wonderful people both personally and professionally. While I would like to work with all of them in a professional set up, the name of one particular person should be specially mentioned here.

He is none other than my own uncle. He is in his late 30’s, but, after knowing him for about 25 years, since my early childhood, I have no hesitation to describe him as an “evergreen” person, who never gets tired of working. Of course, some people would say that there are many people among us, who never get tired of working, and therefore, there is nothing really so special about my uncle. Well, there is indeed something special about my uncle because I have seldom seen him running late for his work (when leaving his home) or returning home late in his last 10 years of professional life as a Senior Accountant. Now, if such a sense of punctuality and great time management don’t make him special, then organizing some of the most “untidy” rooms in the world, courtesy to some “unruly” nephews like me, for about an hour after his work, surely would. If, even this type of sense of ‘caring’ doesn’t make him a perfect candidate to be considered as “special”, then doing grocery every other morning, before hitting the road for office, for a family of 15 persons (yes, we live in a joint family), would almost certainly make him special.

Now, do I need to mention even some more reasons, other than the facts that he has a great sense of time management, responsibility and caring, for which, I would like to work with this person? Well, if the answer is “yes’, I would say that his ever-smiling face, positive attitude of life, high level of self-confidence (but not “boasting” about anything), honesty/truthfulness, tactfulness (but not “shrewd”), and remaining calm in hostile situations are also some of the reasons, for which, I would certainly like to work with my uncle.



Model Answer 2:
Mr Robertson is the CEO of my office and a hard worker. I have never seen such an active person like him before in my career. He is a very smart person and has a short beard. But he looks outstanding with his height. He is six feet tall. Mr Robertson has an outstanding skill to impress people with his speeches. And he never argues with people even if they are wrong. Though he works in the same company where I am employed, I would like to work closely with him as I believe it would give a valuable opportunity to learn many things important for career growth.

Basically, he is the boss of my office. This is a local manufacturing company in New York City. He takes care of the company. The early life of this person was filled with agonies. So, he tries to care for all of his employees. Moreover, he is also responsible for running some other business organization apart from this one. He is also an influential member of the local business association. So, he passes a very busy time during the working days.

I know the person for the past five years. In fact, it was my first job at his organization and I have been continuing here without any interval. And I wish to work here as long as I can. During this time, I have met him a number of times. In each of the meet, I have learned something newer. In the beginning, I did not have the idea that this shabby man would be the boss of this company until I met him officially for the first time in his office.

Working with Mr Robertson will enrich my knowledge and skills. Besides, he is supportive of his staffs and loves to share his experience. Further, a sense of happiness works inside while working with him. For all such grounds, I want to work with Mr Robertson.

Model Answer 1: Transportation is the most important mode of communication and if the roads are not well constructed, the entire transportation process gets spoiled and development process is hampered.

The main highway of our locality was built around 15 to 20 years ago and it has connected the locality with the main city which is about 20 kilometres away from the countryside we are living in. But now it is almost ruined and there are ditches across the road that has made the road bumpy. When it rains, the rain waters clog on the centre of the road and make it muddy.
