Sample Answer:

I am going to talk about the city I live in. the name of my city is Chittagong. It is in the southern part of Bangladesh. The city is famous for its sea-port. The city has a number of popular tourist attractions. It can easily be said that most of the worth seeing places of Bangladesh are in the greater Chittagong region. The tourist spots in the city are Foy’s Lake, Patenga Sea Beach, Bangladesh Anthropological Museum, War Cemetery, and Children’s Park, etc. The city is economically very important for the whole country. The bulk of the country’s import and export is done through the Chittagong seaport. I like the city for its natural beauty.  The city is strewn with numerous hills, both big and small. Taking a walk along the big and clean streets of the city is pleasant. The people of the city are also very friendly and hospitable. I think it is one of the best places in Bangladesh to live in.

Follow-up questions:
1.   Do you think traffic jam is an unavoidable part of a big city? Why?

Yes, I do. In a big city, there are millions of people who work and live in a comparatively small space.  The number of vehicles is also relatively high in a big city. Such facts always cause some traffic congestion in a big city.

2.  Is traffic jam a problem in your city?

 Yes, it is.  I live in Chittagong. In this city traffic jam has become a big problem recently.

3. What are the causes of traffic jams in your city?

 There are many causes of traffic jams. Firstly, some roads of our city are narrow and in want of repair. Secondly, there are not enough roads in the city.

The roads only occupy about 10% space in the city where they should have 25% space. Thirdly, slow vehicles mainly rickshaws make up the major portion of the total traffic of the country.

They cause traffic jams in most cases. Finally, ignorance of traffic rules and violence of traffic rules is also responsible for traffic jams.

4. What can be done to relieve traffic jams?

 Certain steps may be taken to remove traffic jams from my city.  The first thing that has to be done is to repair and widen existing roads.

A second thing that has to be done is to train motor drivers properly and to make them familiar with the traffic rules.

Lastly, proper punishment measures will have to be ensured for the violation of traffic rules.

5.  Was the condition of traffic jams so serious in your country 0twenty years ago?

 No, it was not. There was literally no traffic jam in the city twenty years ago except for a little congestion during the rush hours.

6.  How do you think will the condition of traffic jams be in your city twenty years afterward?

As far as   I am concerned, the condition of traffic jams will become much worse if the present trend continues and no preventive measures are taken.
