Sample Answer 1

Introduction

Neighbors play a pivotal role in our lives because they are the ones we meet regularly apart from our family. And there is no denying this conviction that we become the average of five people we meet.

Although I have a big neighborhood with numerous occupants, one of them is an exciting person. His name is Dr. Gordon.

How long have you known this neighbor?

Five years back, he shifted to our neighborhood. He met first time at a society function. Since that day, he has been my friend and mentor.

What sort of person is he?

He is a voracious reader and a learned man. He is a philanthropist who always goes beyond the conventional domain to solve the pressing problems of society.

How often do you see him?

It is rightly said that we become the average of five people we meet regularly. Mr. Gordan has tremendous knowledge and ideas. Due to this reason, I go for a walk every morning with him.

And explain what kind of relationship you have with him OR explain why you consider this person an attractive neighbor?

Our relationship is of a teacher and student. Whenever I go through challenging times, I consult him to find a solution.

I consider him an interesting person because of his selfless nature. He has this practice of donating half of his earnings for the welfare of poor people.

He does not give money to poor people. Instead, he creates earning opportunities for them. For example, last month, he donated a water pump to the guy who washers cars in our neighborhood.

His central focus in life is to eliminate poverty from the world.

Due to his immense qualities beyond the conventional domain, I call him an attractive neighbour.

Sample Answer 2

Introduction

It is unequivocal to say that our neighborhood plays a vital role in our behavior because we adopt our neighbors’ good and bad habits.

One of my neighbors, Mr. Vivek Goyal, is an exciting person, and I would like to follow in his footsteps.

How long have you known this neighbor?

Five years back, he shifted to our township with his family. During his shifting process, I helped him, and we became known to each other from that day.

What sort of person is he?

He is a simple person who loves mother nature from his heart. His central focus is on undoing the damage done to the environment by human beings, and he works with determination, dedication, and discipline to achieve this aim. 

How often do you see him?

Being a nature lover, I meet him daily to provide unabated support in his environment protection initiative.

And explain what kind of relationship you have with him OR explain why you consider this person an attractive neighbor?

He is an interesting person because of his indomitable willpower. There is no denying this conviction that environmental contamination is a pressing problem for the current generation and posterity.

However, most people talk about this issue but never take any action to change their lifestyle to safeguard the environment.
