Sample Answer 1
Last month, I decided to meet one of my first friends to know about her well-being since I hadn’t met her for the past one year due to Covid. We went to a restaurant, ordered some snacks, and started discussing our professional life and family matters.
Initially, I enjoyed our conversation, but soon the discussion turned towards COVID and lockdown. She explained how lockdown negatively affected her mental health and impacted her family’s financial condition. I was disheartened and stupefied to hear that. I tried to console her, but this conversation made me uncomfortable. Since March 2020, I had received a lot of unpleasant news from my near and dear ones. I thought it would be rude to change the topic since she was deeply hurt and wanted to talk about her hardships. Then I hurriedly finished my meal and told her that I need to go home early, and took her shopping. It distracted her, but honestly, her problem seemed complex. Over the past few months, I have encountered many people who were mentally or financially affected by Covid and Lockdown, and it makes me feel bad that I cannot do anything to make them happy.

Sample Answer 2
I am the kind of person who loves to chat and converse, and I can talk about any given topic for a long duration of time. However, some conversations can become awkward, and the topic may not keep you engrossed for a long time. There was a time when I had such an exchange with an eleven-year-old, and it was the most coerced and banal conversation I have ever had so far.
My friends and I planned a trip to a hill station 200 kilometres away from the city I lived in. However, that trip became very searing to my ears because of the younger brother of one of my friends. Five people went on that trip, and I took the car’s back seat. The little boy urged me to sit with him, to which I happily agreed. However, little did I know that the boy would become a matter of irk for me.
The boy started talking about all the animated series and animes that he had seen so far and wanted me to talk about them with the same zeal. Unfortunately, I didn’t even have an idea about the ABC of those series. He pointed out my indifference and lack of exhilaration for the toon series he was such a zealot of and started chivvying me to talk about the series that I might have watched in the past.
I have never been interested in animated series, even when I was a kid, let alone watching or talking about them. Hence, that discussion disconcerted me a lot as I wasn’t supposed to miff that kid with my avoidance and turn my back on him.
