Model Answer: Recently I have seen an advertisement on TV. It was how a businessman flourished his supermarket and kept contact with his suppliers on the mobile phone.
The advertisement was telecast by all the TV channels of Bangladesh. It advertised the mobile connection of Banglalink, a mobile phone company in Bangladesh.
It was a well-made advertisement. The models also performed well. The special about the advertisement was that it looked very natural and credible.
I consider it a good advertisement having a good story in it. The advertisement was pretty effective as well as after starting the telecast of the advertisement, the sales of Banglalink connections rose about 10% over the next month.
I am going to talk about my favorite transportation. My favorite mode of transportation is a steamer. My native village is on an island named Sandwip and my family lives in Chittagong town at present. So, we usually go to Sandhip by steamer. a journey by steamer is quite safe though many people are afraid of any kind of journey by water. I like a journey by steamer very much because I feel a certain thrill while having a journey by steamer. The sea attracts me very much. When the steamer reaches the middle of the journey, there is only water all around. Then I feel an untold charm. I have had many trips by steamers. Still, every journey seems to be the first one and charms me as if it were the first journey.
