Sample Answer

I’d like to talk about the time when I (1) made use of imagination. I was going to the bookstore that day and accidentally (2) ran into the book titled “Maldives Beach”. The name (3) caught my attention as  my friends told me Maldives is the (4) finest beach they have ever seen. The book looks like other travelling books with several sections talking about the local people and some tips to travel there. The more I read, the more interesting the book was. The book describes closely how local (5) handicrafts were made and how (6) skillful the local was. Although there isn’t any picture, I could imagine the lotus statues or (7) embroideries  (8)with riot of colors which are sold at the market everyday. The book allows me (9) to transport myself into a special realm where i feel very comfortable and relaxed. However, I wish that the book could add more colorful pictures as I had to (10) make the best of my imagination to (11) visualize how the beach look like. Though the book describes about the white sand, crystal water and range of coconut trees but i found it’s still hard to imagine. If this book had more pictures, I think it would be the (12) best-seller travelling book. Maldives beach stimulates me to go travelling  (13) step out of my comfort zone and discover new (14) horizons so it’s definitely the best book for me.
