Sample Answer 1

I’d like to describe a compelling advertisement I recently encountered from a company named P&G under their program named P&G Shiksha That was promoting free education as part of their corporate social responsibility. I saw this advertisement on the internet while browsing through social media platforms.

The advertisement featured a heartwarming narrative showcasing the journey of underprivileged children who had limited access to education. It portrayed the struggles they faced due to financial constraints and the lack of educational resources. The key elements of the ad were emotionally charged visuals of these children’s determination to learn.

What made this advertisement particularly effective and useful was its ability to evoke empathy and a sense of social responsibility among the viewers. It emphasized the company’s commitment to contributing a significant portion of its revenue to provide free education to children in need. The ad encouraged viewers to support this cause by sharing the video and contributing to the initiative. I believe this advertisement was impactful because it effectively tapped into the viewer’s emotions, inspiring them to take action.

It demonstrated how businesses can play a vital role in addressing social issues and contributing positively to society beyond their profit-making endeavors. Corporate initiatives like providing free education have a profound impact on society. They help bridge educational gaps, create opportunities for underprivileged individuals, and ultimately contribute to the overall development of communities. Such initiatives not only improve access to education but also empower individuals to break the cycle of poverty. All in all this advertisement on free education for needy students is the ad that i found particularly inspiring.

Sample Answer 2

I think advertisements have become ubiquitous (very common) nowadays. Ads can be seen on flyers, bill boards, tv, mobiles and many other places. However, I would like to talk about the olx ad. It is often shown on TV and YouTube while watching any program. Actually, this ad describes about Olx which is an app where people can sell and buy second hand items, such as car, TV, cooler, fridge and many more.

Rohit Shetty, a popular film director and Sharman Joshi, an eminent bollywood actor have given their contributions in this advertisement, and this ad is full of humorous(funny) talks. I think it is the main reason of its popularity. I think it is a fruitful TV commercial because it tells about an app which helps individuals to save their precious time. For example, nowadays people are busy in their work.

They work all the day to satiate (satisfy) their needs due to which they don’t get time to go somewhere in order to find the buyer and seller for their used goods, but on Olx they can do this at home just in seconds. Although I avoid other ads, I like this ad too much because it is beneficial for environment.

In simple words, when people start using olx after watching its ad, then people don’t throw their old item, instead they sell on Olx which mean it is reused. When our goods are reused, and less products are produced then it leads to less carbon dioxide emissions. All in all, it is the best ad till now.
