Model Answer:
Thank you very much for this nice cue card topic. To get to the details, it was all about creating a presentation and a subordinate of mine appeared before me. He was a fresh graduate from a local university in Greece. He was told to make a presentation on strategic planning for the next six months for the company. And he was unable to make a presentation using MS PowerPoint.

So, I had to teach him how to make presentations using PowerPoint slides. But he was new to this and it took a long time for me to teach him the entire process. I had to repeat the same thing over and over again. Finally, after spending around two and a half hours, he understood how to make presentation slides with the software.

Nicholas Andrew, the nephew of the managing director of the company in which I work in, was the person whom I taught the presentation. He looked smart in outlook but he was an empty vessel inside. In fact, he was arrogant and considered everyone as his subordinate – though he was the most junior in the office in all terms. Therefore, nobody liked him.

Later, I came to know that Andrew completed the presentation. Though the base of his presentation was not so firm, he was able to make the matter clear. I suggested him to keep practising and he did so. In fact, he paid heed to me this time for his own betterment. And I was happy that I could have taught something to someone.

Model Answer 1: People around the world wear different sorts of dresses and due to geographical location and seasonal changes, the attires vary. I always prefer wearing jeans clothes, especially jeans pant and shirt.

Jeans are common clothing items and are available around the world and mostly popular among the youths who are of my age. I wear jeans pant and shirt always even when I attend in any formal occasion.

Model Answer: Thank you very much for the time you have given me to talk about something I have purchased but hardly used. I will tell you about the mobile phone that I bought six months ago which I have barely touched so far.

The mobile phone that I purchased was from the Samsung brand and I purchased it from a 'Samsung Smartphone Cafe'. The store is located a few blocks away from my home and I purchased a Samsung smartphone (model Samsung Galaxy A 30) which cost me nearly $340.

I already have a smartphone that comes with better features and configuration than the one I recently purcha…
