Band 9.0 Sample Answer Ideas.
• We all have to make decisions from time to time.
• Some decisions are agreed upon by all, whereas some decisions are not liked by all.
• Here, I would like to talk about a decision, which was made by my two friends Raman and Sunder, when we were in 10th class.
• They decided to bunk school and go to watch a movie in a multiplex.
• I disagreed strongly.
• First of all, the idea of bunking school did not seem right to me.
• Then, going for a movie without parents’ permission was out of question as far as my thinking was concerned.
• I advised them to go for the movie on a Sunday, in the morning show, after taking permission from our parents.
• But they were adamant, and were forcing me also to accompany them.
• I was in a dilemma, as I did not want to disappoint my friends.
• But, my father is very strict.
• I knew that if he found out, he would be very upset and may even not talk to me for days.
• I could not even bear to think of that.
• So, I said a firm no to my friends and again tried to dissuade them from bunking school.
• They, however, did not agree and went for the movie.
• I remember I felt very light at heart for not going with them.
• I cannot even think of lying to my parents, or hiding anything from them.
• So, this was the decision made by my friends, which I did not like.

I think parents should have a healthy discussion with their children when they have to make an important decision, and then let the child have the final say.
