Sample Answer: 

Last month my family members and I were so happy because I won a prize in college. Everyone smiled and were happy for my success. In fact, it was beyond their imagination that I could secure a price in such a tough competition. Besides, it was a matter of pride for them as well. None of them expected me to have the prize in this 300-meter race. So, when I returned home with the prize, they smiled at me pleasantly. I was very excited and happy too.

I returned home after competing in the competition held at my college. In fact, it was all of a sudden that I took part in the annual sports competition in the college. It was a tougher completion indeed for me as I did not have any prior preparations for the events. And when I returned with a prize, it made my day. 

When I returned home, I met almost every one of my family. I had my parents, uncles and aunts, cousins and my grandma. Among them, my grandma was the happiest person. She blessed me saying that someday I should be a great sportsman (though I do not have such intentions). But I was pleased to know that everyone is happy with the success I achieved. that made me even happier.

The smiles on their faces represented affection and love towards me. None of the family had such a success before. Actually, they do not prefer to take part in physical activities like sports. They love to spend time watching television and gossiping. So, when they came to know about my success, they really became happy to know about it. Consequently, the smiled at me. I was glad too that they love me much. That was a rare success for me and it made me happy to a great extent.

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.
