Model Answer 1:
To tell the truth, the idea of a perfect home has eluded me for a long time because the idea doesn’t stick in my mind for too long. If I have one idea today, it is replaced with another the next day. But, still, I will try my best to describe my perfect home today without sounding too much “incoherent”.

My perfect home should be preferably located in the countryside and close to a tulip garden. It should be a duplex home with at least 4 rooms on one side of the building while the kitchen and living room should be located on the other side. Each room should be at least 150 square feet each with one balcony for each room. All the rooms should have corridors, leading to each door, in order to ensure enough privacy for everybody. The home should have enough ventilation facilities so that the fragrance of the tulip garden can enter the home. It should also have large windows so that a perfect view of the tulip garden can be captured from inside the duplex. The duplex should be about 2500 square feet with all kinds of modern amenities, such as internet and satellite TV network. The kitchen should be spacious and fully equipped with all kinds of modern amenities, including dishwashing and laundry facilities in a master closet. Besides, I would also prefer the colours of all the furniture and fittings inside the duplex to be matching the colour of the wall painting. Finally, the balconies of my home should also be spacious enough to accommodate a few large flower pots to render a natural look to my home.

This is a perfect home for me, primarily because it is spacious enough to organize all my things in an artistic manner. I would consider it my perfect home also because it would allow me to remain close to mother nature in the countryside while watching the beautiful tulip garden. Besides, it is a perfect home for me also because it will ensure enough privacy for occupants of all the rooms due to its good layout.




Sample Answer 2: 
At first, I would like to thank you for providing me with this topic. This is quite an interesting one and I will describe the inner feeling of mine regarding a house.

I personally believe that a house is a place where happiness lives. I can picture a house filled with inner and outer happiness. It would be at a wonderful location but I would prefer an area with plants and foliage. It would be best for me if I can manage space adjacent to any country location as those places usually provide sensational natural views. I want to enjoy the fresh breeze around me and only the countrysides can render that.

Leading a solo life is my passion and so, I do not need a large house to live in. There should be a bedroom and a living space. Of course, it should come with a small library and a music station. Reading books by playing soft music is my hobby. I would also like to have a large screen with some gaming devices to spend my leisure hours effectively. In fact, I love to play video games very much.

The outlook of the house needs to be wonderful. Though many of the people may oppose my views, I would not step down from my stance to have a tally-built roof. It also should a single-storied house that must have a garden in front of it. As a matter of fact, enjoying solitude amid the greeneries will render a pleasant feeling to me. Besides, there should a small swimming pool inside the house boundary where I will swim every morning.

If all the things could be arranged, it would be a perfect home for me. As it is said earlier, a home is the abode of happiness; I want that happiness should surround all the time I stay at the house.




Model Answer 3:
Thanks a lot for the opportunity to let me talk about a house that I deem perfect for me. Well, I love nature and want my home close to nature. It should be out of the city crowd and nature should embrace the entire home. A lonely place is desired for the home – far away from city life. The home should be near to any lake or river. The mountainous region is also preferred for my home.

The home should be moderate in size and shape. There should be two bedrooms with ample space. It should also come with a kitchen and two spacious bathrooms. I would like to utilize natural light. So, the ventilation system needs to be quite good. The door and windows will be made of wide enough to allow the sunlight.

Honestly, I am not a fashionable man and this is reflected in my daily life. I do not want my home to look like something extraordinary. The outlook will be simple but the inner decoration needs to be gorgeous. I will have a minimum number of furniture. And obviously, it should be a single-storied house with a garden in front of it. It would be a plus if the house faces south.

If I can manage everything together, it would be a perfect home for me. I love to live with nature. It helps to get a pleasant feeling. The spacious home will allow me to move freely inside the home and the garden before the house will help to get fresh fruits and vegetables. I will spend time under the tree shades and read books. Life would be enjoyable. Based on the reasons, it would be a complete home for me.

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.
