Model Answer 1:
I don’t really like to participate in any kind of survey or quiz, primarily because they usually take way more time to finish than their expected estimated time. Having said that, however, I have taken part in some useful surveys which, I thought, could actually make some difference in our lives. Today, I would like to talk about one such survey which I took online about a couple of months ago.

Anyway, the online survey, I participated in, was about employee welfare and wellness programmes, and if I remember correctly, the survey was prepared and conducted by a prominent, non-profit employee welfare organization in my country. I had received the survey in my email. It is worth mentioning that, I receive such online surveys in my email pretty much on a regular basis which I simply get rid of without a second thought, because I find them to be redundant.

I was thinking the same when I received that particular survey. However, something back in my mind just kept pushing me to go through the survey questions just for once as it was delivered by a rather prominent non-profit NGO in my country, and as it was talking about the overall welfare and wellness of all the workers in my country. After all, I am also a full-time employee, and I have also suffered from some terrible burnout at my work at one point or another in my life. I took part in the survey also because the questions there were rather short and concise, and it contained only about 8-10 questions.

I felt a bit relieved and happy after participating in the survey, mainly because it was kind of directly related to my personal circumstances and situation, while also making me more confident about my professional life at the same time. Besides, it also opened up my eyes to some other work-related issues which could potentially and negatively affect my life both in the short run as well as the long run.


Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
I'd like to talk about an online quiz that I took a few months ago. It was an educational quiz related to English grammar and vocabulary. So please bear with me!

When it was:
I remember taking this quiz in the middle of last year. I was looking for ways to improve my English language skills, and I came across this quiz on a language learning website. So, I thought I should try this.

What type of survey or quiz it was:
This quiz was related to English grammar and vocabulary. It consisted of 30 multiple-choice questions, and the topics covered were grammar rules, sentence structure, vocabulary, and comprehension.

Why you took it:
I decided to take this quiz because I wanted to assess my language proficiency and identify areas where I needed improvement. Besides, I was interested in testing my knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary.

And explain how you felt about it:
Overall, I found this quiz to be quite challenging and engaging. While some questions were easy, others required careful reading and analysis. I was pleased with my performance on the quiz, as I scored well above the average score. It gave me a sense of accomplishment and motivated me to continue improving my language skills.

I believe that it not only tested my knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary but also provided me with insights into my language proficiency. I would definitely recommend taking such quizzes to anyone interested in improving their language skills.
