Money plays an important part in our lives. In several aspects, it is the most important thing in life. It is therefore much sought after.


Without money we could not buy our food, clothes and all the other things that we need khổng lồ live comfortably. We require money to travel, lớn buy medicine when we areill và also lớn pay for the services rendered khổng lồ us by others. In truth, money is almost indispensable khổng lồ our survival. Most of our activities are therefore directed towards earning as much money as possible. Lack of money also causes great hardship và sorrow in hundreds of families.

The citizen is considered so important that his rights are protected by the law of the state, & whenever they are infringed, he can secure redress.

Of all the subjects that I study in school, I think that English is the most important subject. It is mainly through the Englishlanguage that we gain access lớn the various sources of knowledge.

Knowledge of new discoveriesand inventions in one country is transmitted lớn other countries through English for the benefit of the world. In this way English helps to lớn spread knowledge & progress.

13. In about 140 words, write a paragraph about the incident you shall never forget.


Certain incidents so impress us that they leave an indelible mark on our memory. I was once involved in an incident of which I shall always have vivid recollections. The incident occurred when I visited a village in India together with my parents, sometime during my holidays last year.

Early in the morning on the day the incident occurred, I was talking with a few of my new friends in that village.

15. In about 140 words, write a paragraph about the advantages and disadvantages of the cinema.

The films shown in the cinema are often very instructive và informative. Almost every film shows something about the activities & customs of the people in other lands. By seeing such films, one learns a lot about human activities. One also gains a better understanding of people of the world.

Films which show the activities of criminals have encouraged many youths to commit acts or crime.

Today, it is not easy to choose a career. Hundreds of students pass various examinations every year & compete with one another for positions in the various professions which are not so many as there are applicants. I would, however, like to choose teaching as my career.

Teaching is an interesting career for several reasons. As a teacher I can learn many things, especially if I teach to an udder-secondaryschool. If I teach History or English, for example, I have to lớn read many books khổng lồ make my teaching lessons more interesting to my pupils. Thus, I can acquire more knowledge of the subjects that I teach than what I can learn from the class text books.

22. In about 140 words, write a paragraph about a journey by train.

The house in which I lived before was near the railway station. Trains used lớn pass by at regular interval & I had become so familiar with their sound and sight that I took little interest in them.

23. In about 140 words, write a paragraph lớn discuss “news travel fast”

Until a few decades ago news travelled very slowly. It took several days khổng lồ know what was happening in places only a few miles away.

In the past, men had khổng lồ travel on root khổng lồ get information, even about the most unimportant thing.There were no motor vehicles & travel was slow và difficult. As a result, news too travelled very slowly. If one"s relative died in some distant place, one received the news of the death several days later. Sometimes there was no news at all.

Some countries are not rich in mineral resources. They have no iron or coal mines, while others have too many of them. Again, some countries are not suitable for agriculture while others have several fertile plains to grow crops.

25. In about 140 words, write a paragraph khổng lồ describe a narrow escape.

Whenever my mind travels over the past events in mylife, one incident stands out prominently to remind me of the narrow escape Ionce had from almost certain death.


My brother và I were then spending our holidays in an estate where our father was employed. A cobra, about six feet long, was lying along the water"s edge of one side of the stream in which we were fishing. Thinking that it was a fish, I gripped it at once & tried khổng lồ bring it out of the water.

In the past travel was considered an essential part of education. Poets and writers realised the value of travel và went out to other countries in tìm kiếm of knowledge. A man"s education was not completed until he had visited foreign lands.

27. In about 140 words, write a paragraph about the country you would like to visit.

I have heard much about the beauty of the East as well as the West, about the wonderful islands in the Pacific và also in the Atlantic. In short, the whole world seems khổng lồ be full of beautiful places. The country that I would lượt thích to visit, however, is the United States of America. My knowledge of the United States of America is derived from the geography & history books that I have read, the films that I have seen và the stories that I have heard from people who have visited this country.

28. In about 140 words, write a paragraph about good manners.

Good manners play an important part in maintaining peace & good- will in a community. A man who has good manners does not hurt the feelings of others, và therefore he is on good terms with his friends và neighbors và also with others. In this way he helps khổng lồ keep peace in society. But a man whose manners are bad has no respect for others. He uses words carelessly và behaves rudely towards other và causes a lot of ill- will and unpleasantness. In the end, it is he himself who suffers the most.

We should also have good manners, for it is human nature to lớn seek friendship; & friendship cannot be bought with money.


29. In about 140 words, write a paragraph about choosing a career.

It is not easy lớn choose a career today. Hundreds of students are leaving schools và universities every year lớn seek employment in the various professions, though employment opportunities are not increasing proportionately. As a result, there is a lot of unemployment.

Before one leaves school or university, one has many plans, confident that choosing a career will not be difficult. But when the time comes to lớn choose a career, one finds that there are others with better qualifications waiting khổng lồ enter the same profession.

Until I visited the zoo at Johore Bahru, a few months ago, I had no idea how informative a visit khổng lồ a zoo might be. Though the zoo at JohoreBahru is not big, I found many kinds of interesting animals and other creatures there. Lions, tigers and other animals were moving about lazily in their cages.

Whenever they saw a visitor, they ran towards him & begged for something to eat.

31. In about 140 words, write a paragraph about the importance of the newspaper.

The newspaper, today, plays a vital role in human affairs. Its importance has not been diminished by the appearance of the radio or the television. Men no longer have travel lớn get information.

Though the radio & television convey important news và messages quicker than the newspaper, they seldom give the details of an incident. The newspaper, on the other hand, gives not only more details about a particular incident but it also contains more new items.

Though I was seriously ill & required special attention, yet the knowledge that I was in the hospital made me feel miserable during the first few days.
