Model Answer:  
 
I can remember having many interesting discussions and conversations over the years, especially at my work, but today, I would like to talk about an interesting and stimulating discussion here that I had as a university student.

The discussion, I am talking about, took place about 4 years ago when I was a second-year university student, and was enjoying learning about all the cool things about Physics. In fact, I liked my subject (and of course, it was “Physics”) so much that whenever there was any kind of arguments or discussion about any theories or laws of Physics, I would never hesitate to take part in it,  just like I didn’t hesitate to do so with two of my classmates.

By the way, the subject of the discussion among us was “time travel”, and we all argued with each other to get our points across, based on our limited knowledge on it. However, my argument was a bit different from my two classmates as I told them that we were and are always doing time travelling, but our “time travel”, as I argued, is only meant to take us “forward” and all at the same rate. On the other hands, of course, my classmates argued with the findings from some research works that it is possible to approach the speed of light by producing a force that is equal to the gravity at the surface of the earth. The discussion, and a very live one in that, had continued for almost an hour, and we all agreed that “time travel” is not just a “fantasy” or some sort of “science fiction”.

Anyway, even though, we didn’t agree with each other during that interesting discussion on time travel, I found it very interesting because I actually learned about a lot of new things from the discussion. Besides, it was also during that discussion that I was convinced for the first time that time travel into the past could actually be possible someday.
