Model Answer: 
There are a number of actors from my country who are very popular among the people, but very few of them is as popular as Keanu Reeves. So, today, I would like to talk about this great actor who has remained a poster boy of the Hollywood film industry for almost three decades.

Keanu Reeves is a Canadian actor, producer, director and musician who was born in 1964. After starting his film career in 1984, he soon rose to his fame for his starring roles in several blockbuster films, including comedies from the Bill and Ted franchise (1989–present); action thrillers Point Break (1991), Speed (1994), and the John Wick franchise (2014–present); psychological thriller The Devil's Advocate (1997); supernatural action horror Constantine (2005); and sci-fi action series The Matrix (1999–present). He has also appeared in drama films such as Dangerous Liaisons (1988), My Own Private Idaho (1991), and Little Buddha (1993), as well as the romantic horror Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992).

Therefore, it is fair to suggest that he is one of those gifted actors who excel in all kinds of acting and movies. Anyway, even though, Keanu Reeves has enjoyed a very successful professional life, his personal life has gone through some tragic incidents. For example, his daughter died only a week before she was supposed to be born.  A couple of years later, he lost the woman, he loved so dearly, in a car accident. Notably, even though, this actor has enjoyed such success in his career, he doesn’t live a very lavish and glamorous life like many other stars.

Anyway, Keanu Reeves is so popular, mainly because he always seems to be himself and so natural in all the movies, he acts. Besides, he lives a rather modest life for such a successful Hollywood star. In fact, he even openly claims that he doesn’t find much happiness in luxury mansions and expensive cars. His generosity in giving charity also makes him a very popular person. In fact, he has set up a cancer charity while also donating $80 million of his $114 million earning from his movie “The Matrix”.

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.
