Model Answer 1: 
Children are constantly changing and developing new preferences, fears, thoughts and emotions. But, for the very same reasons, they can be interesting also. Even some conversations with them sometimes can be rather amusing. Today, I would like to talk about one such conversation with a child which, I thought, was fascinating.

His full name is “Zulqar Seikh”, about 4/5 years old, and he also happens to be the nephew of one of my friends. I met Zulqar about a few months ago at a local stadium when his uncle (my friend) brought the boy with him in order to watch a football match. Since then, I have met Zulqar (along with my friend) several times already at a local, which I also happen to visit almost every weekend, when he used to practice riding his tricycle. By the way, his uncle uses to supervise his cycle riding practice. But, one day, when I was casually accompanying Zulqar and supervising him in riding his tricycle in the park, I asked him if he really liked riding his cycle. In response, Zulqar said that he didn’t like it as he rather preferred to fly an aeroplane so that he could find out about the “aliens” in the sky. But, when I told him that it was not easy at all to fly an aeroplane, and there was nothing called “aliens”, he very smartly said that I couldn’t have possibly known about aliens because I had never flown an aeroplane into the sky before. Needless to say, his smart response essentially “shut” me up for a while.

I think the conversation was interesting because the little boy reminded of a very popular adage in my country which said: “no conclusion without proper investigation” in reference to the conclusion that “there is nothing called “aliens”. Besides, I also didn’t expect a little boy of that age to know that one would actually need to fly into the sky to find aliens instead of searching them on the earth, which I thought was pretty smart.




Sample Answer 2:
Everyone loves to be with children. I love to be with them too due to their extraordinary charms. Recently, I met a child on my way back home. Nearly a four-year-old baby boy had a smart way of responding on that day. He was the son of my co-passenger on the bus.

Initially, I did not have the intention to engage in conversations with the baby. But gradually, I discovered that the baby was highly intelligent. He was replying craftily to his father’s questions. Besides, when I had eye contact with him, he smiled attractively. It was the introduction phase between us.

Well, I do not have regular contact with the baby but I am connected to his dad through social media. After the first meet, I urged the man to share his social profile details so that I can keep connected with the baby. Accordingly, I have some video chats with the baby, particularly in the evening hours. I enjoy the conversations and planning to visit him next week.

I did not have any idea that a baby of his age can discuss issues of playing cricket with friends. He has several friends who play cricket with him. And he was planning to get some playing gears. I asked him which one he loved and his reply was amazing. He was aware of the pros and cons of a cricket bat and smartly selects his piece. Moreover, he also knew almost all the rules of cricket games and all the things appeared interesting to me. I have never seen a boy before to so attentive on the game.
