Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
Well, the government of my country enacts various laws for the smooth functioning of the state.

What it is?
Here, I would like to talk about a very important law that has been introduced lately to protect the environment. It is quite unfortunate to see that the environment getting degraded day by day and if not taken seriously, it would lead to a dire consequence.

The biggest challenge at present is plastic waste. The amount of solid waste is constantly increasing and a major proportion of this waste is plastic. Millions of tons of plastic waste end up at landfill sites day In and day out. Since it is a non-biodegradable product it stays there forever. At the same time, it releases extremely harmful toxins and often become a cause of birds and animal’s death that feed on landfill sites.

To overcome this challenge, the government of India has completely banned the use of plastic bags. Now if people go shopping they carry their own bags usually Jute bags which are ecofriendly. Along with the ban, the government also aware the general public to say ‘No to plastic’. In fact, plastic is also responsible for ruining the beauty of public areas parks and bus stops.

Because plastic trash can be seen all around but under this law, if someone caught using plastic bags has to pay a five thousand rupees fine and the shopkeepers who keep plastic bags have to pay twenty thousand rupees fine. It is just because of this strict law and heavy penalty people have started avoiding plastic bags.

Who benefits from it? and And explain how you feel about this law?
It is resulting in a substantial decline in the amount of waste produced and keeping the environment clean and green.

Conclusion:
I hope there will be more laws that would be implemented to save the environment in future.

Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
Well, it is not wrong to say that global warming and the consequent 00 climate change are the direct outcomes of indiscriminate human activities. The increased amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere warms the earth’s surface causing serious problems.

It is comforting to know that the nations around the world are giving priority to environmental issues due to which various acts have been introduced like the environment protection act, wildlife protection act, water prevention and control of pollution.

What it is?
But here I would like to talk about a major law that is to protect the trees. I got to know about this act from a newspaper that I like to read in the morning. According to this act, no one is allowed to cut the tree if it is not in their private land. Therefore, anyone found offending this rule will not only be fined but also sentenced to non-bailable jail for 2 years. It is well said that ‘when the last tree dies, last man dies’.

Honestly, it was really significant to make this law as it is clear that millions of trees are Chopped. As a result, the ratio of carbon dioxide has increased than Oxygen. Large areas of forest land, which maintains the balance of nature, are also destroyed in the name of industrialization and urbanisation. Consequently, large glaciers in the polar region melt, Creating flood and submerging vast areas of human-inhabited land Moreover, trees are the habitat of various birds And animals and the extinction of these can really be deleterious to mankind.

And explain how you feel about this law?
Preservation of trees is imperative to prolonged life on earth.

A police officer should possess many qualities. He/she should be physically fit and active and should have a passion to serve the people and the Nation.

I think in the Western world police officers are paid well in accordance to their duties but in the developing countries their salaries do not match the work they do, they deserve better salaries.

Human psychology is the same everywhere in the world when the citizens know that they are going to be caught, penalized, put behind the bars, they will obey the law. A law well implemented is well obeyed. I think Indian people know they can find loopholes to save themselves, so they do not obey the law. I have come across very honest Indians and very dishonest people from other nations so the system that has to get strict.
