Sample Answer

I’d like to talk about Zalora group, one of the leading companies  (1)specializing in selling clothes.

It is an (2)e-commerce company for online shopping purposes and provides (3) a wide variety of style as well as current (4) fashion trend for both men and women. The company has been through so many (5)ups and downs that there was a time when they were (5) on the edge of bankruptcy. At first, I didn’t care much about it, not until I (6) came across a(7) eye-catching dress when going shopping in the mega mall did I become interested in its products.  What amazed me is that the price is much cheaper than other brands so I can (8)get the best offer without (9)asking for a bargain. Normally it would take me 3 days for the (10) merchandise to be delivered but just only 2 days  I could receive it. Another thing is that the (11) refund policy of ZALORA is much better than Lazada which is its (12) competitor. Customers can return (13) unpleasing products within 10 days and get a brand new one with a similar price so that’s the reason why ZALORA has great (14) customer base than any competitors. Lately, the company has (15) expanded its chain all over the place, therefore, customers no longer have to wait for delivered products and can enjoy great service from (16) physical stores.

Starting from (17) modest investment to a leading company that has (18) highly profitable and thousands of employees, ZALORA is an icon for lots of (19) start-ups and (20 ) youngsters  (21) running their own businesses.
