Sample 1 Talk About A Time When You Were Asked Opinion In A Survey or Questionnaire
Well, it happened once in my life when I was doing my master’s in education, and at that time, my guide told me to take part in an honour-killing project. I chose it because it was also a part of my study, and I wanted to improve my knowledge on a different topic. So I willingly accepted the offer.
When I was asked to give my opinion, I had ambivalent feelings as I could not decide who was right, either parents or their children. Before taking part in it, I studied a lot, made many field trips and collected information from the people.
Then I came to the conclusion that if parents take a drastic step against their children, they do it because they want to maintain their status in society as they have a good reputation in the society and if I consider the point of view of the youngsters then I must say that they have a right to choose their partner, but due to immaturity, they sometimes take wrong decisions because they have no good communication with their parents.
Sometimes parents fail to convince their children, and sometimes children fail to convince their parents. I felt very sad about giving my opinion, but I must say that parents are great well-wishers for their children. They educate them and provide them with every facility. I think the communication gap is one of the biggest problems between children and parents. Only then can honour killing be stopped. So that was the survey in which I gave my mixed feelings.
Sample 2 Talk About A Time When You Were Asked Opinion In A Survey or Questionnaire
I would like to discuss a questionnaire I answered some years back; the questionnaire was about the surge in the death rate of pregnant women, if I can recall vividly. It all started when I was still in school, about six years ago, when we were given a top for each student to do justice to it as part of our project.
This common topic was rejected by many as they heard that the previous student that carried out research about the topic failed, then I took it upon myself to unravel it. I then realised that their death was due to ignorance, not mere sickness or infirmity.
I presented my view in front of the whole school. And I was applauded to the extent I was handshake by the head of the school then. I was elated and excited and had a sense of fulfilment of purpose.

Answer 1:- I don’t think there are any drawbacks that I know of because any questions students could ask would be educative, informative and enlightening. This makes the pupils gain a lot from questions because it opens them up to something they don’t know before. Unless the question is outside the things I have said earlier.
Answer 2:- Well, if I talk about the disadvantages of asking a question from a survey, then some people can give wrong answers. They will not take it seriously, and it can create a lot of trouble; if a survey is done regarding water facilities, many people may give wrong feedback. Then there are chances of exacerbating the situation.
