Q2: Is it important to have a hobby?

– Without context: Yes, I think hobbies are a great way to unwind
– With context: You know, nowadays, life is very hectic and I find myself very busy with work, so it’s nice to have a hobby just to unwind in the off-hours.
- Will robots replace humans at work?
- Without context: Yes, I think robots will do all the tasks humans are doing now.
- With context: You know, nowadays automation is the trend in the workplace. Most heavy tasks can now be done by machines with ease, so yes, maybe we’ll be replaced by robots in the future.
