Sample Answer of Talk about a useful piece of equipment

Technology is the result of human inventiveness. We are neither strong like gorillas or tigers nor fast like cheetahs and hawks, but our brain has given birth to equipment that made us ruling species on the planet. So today, I would take this opportunity to talk about Television – a technology marvel that is an important part of our household.

We bought an LG 55 inch 4K television in the Black Friday sale. Buying a new TV can feel like a daunting task. There are a lot of different models, and sales seemingly happen every week, but Black Friday is usually the best time of the year to buy a TV. It’s the time that new models see major discounts in doorbuster deals, making it the perfect occasion to fetch a great offer.

Every member of my family uses it differently. I prefer to use Television to binge-watch my favourite Netflix shows, whereas my mother is a die-hard fan of talent & reality shows, so she watches them on TV. Also, the Television has one revolutionary feature, i.e. the equipment acts as an elegant & modern photo frame and looks like a real frame hanging on the wall. My father commonly uses this feature to exhibit his wildlife photography. I use it quite often! I watch it every morning for like 1-2 hours mainly to see weather updates and local news. Then in the evening, after returning from work, I go on a TV spree to watch my dearly loved Netflix shows.

Well, the most obvious use of Television is, of course, watching it, be it the news, your favourite daily soap, a hit new drama or film. Besides this, Television could also be a new gym. For example, my grandmother used to practice yoga by watching sessions on TV. In the end, I would say that… Television is an inescapable part of modern culture. Our lives depend on this equipment for entertainment, news, education, culture, weather, sports and even music.
