Model Answer:
Recently I have bought a personal computer for my home use. I have spent a smart amount to get this one as it comes with a higher configuration than the former one. It looks nice and I am in love with the curved monitor. The overall performance of the computer is good so far.

I bought the computer because the old one became slow and eventually stopped working. I do not know how it happened. But it was a bad luck for me. I stored all of my necessary data and information on that computer. Besides, that device contained a notable number of movies and documentaries too. But I lamented on losing some project proposals and presentations from my office that I stored here. I have to prepare them again, and this is a tough task indeed. Based on all the grounds, I needed another computer for my use.

The computer configuration was better than the former one. So, it was a costly device for me. I had to spend around 1400 euros to get this electronic device. I took a four-terabyte hard disk with eight GB ram. I extended the configuration so that I could use it for the next five years. Though it was an expensive matter for me, I invested in it for my future because I will not get a computer every year.

I was happy with my computer, particularly its performance was splendid. The former one had a slow performance and there were some other troubles too. I was unhappy with the storage as well. But this time I have solved all the problems. Enjoying movies on the curved screen is a wonderful experience for me.

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…
