Sample Answer :

As a child I had numerous toys (collocation) that my parents, siblings, and friends gifted on various occasions (collocation). However (cohesion), I loved the toy train that my dad gifted me on my seventh birthday.

The first three questions have been addressed till now. It is time to answer the fourth question in a great detail. Note: All pronouns such as IT are referencing words that promote cohesion.

This (cohesion) toy was very special and different from others not only (cohesion) because it (cohesion) was a self propelling train but also (cohesion) because my younger brother and I spent years playing with it. It was not a simple toy but a motorised train with tracks and barriers. I could remotely run the train at high or low speeds and apply breaks to stop it. Moreover (cohesion), my younger brother and I used to spend hours playing with it and, in case of any technical difficulty (collocation), my mom and dad used to repair it. Thus (cohesion), it was not just (cohesion) a marvelous toy (collocation) but also (cohesion) a social bond among my family members. My brother and I developed a close bond of cooperation and a spirit of competition while playing with it.
