Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
Well, with time, we develop various qualities, and these qualities define our personality, but some qualities we could not maintain for a long time.

What quality was?
Here, I am going to talk about one such quality that I had in childhood, but I do not possess any more. It’s the quality of being very friendly and outgoing. In childhood, I was of a very friendly nature, or I can say I was quite an extrovert.

How it benefitted you?
I had many friends at school, and they all enjoyed my company. I was a very jolly and lively personality, so they always love to be around me. Apart from school, I had many friends in the neighbourhood as well. After school, I had a lot of time, and I often hit the playground and spent hours playing there; and there, I also made many friends, and I used to love chatting and talking to my friends.

How you lost it?
However, with time the study pressure increased for that reason, I stopped going to the playground and started to focus on my studies; this way, I lost many friends that I made at the playground similarly, I also got Obsessed with technology and for that reason, I started to spend more and more time playing computer games or using social networking websites rather than enjoying the company of my friends and gossiping with them.

How do you feel about it?
Where I used to remain surrounded with buddies all the time; today, I have a very limited friend circle.l sometimes feel that it is a negative development because today, my friendship or relationship with friends are not as strong as they used to be, and it is just because of my reserved and introvert nature.

Conclusion:
I hope I will develop an easy-going and extrovert nature in future, and once again, I will become friendly like earlier.

Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
Childhood is a stage or time of life when a human is free from all tensions. It is the best time to learn new things because a child can concentrate easily. But there are some qualities that people lose with time. Today, I would like to talk about a quality that I had in childhood.

What quality was? and How it benefitted you?
I was a very selfless person in my childhood. I was always ready to help others. Many times I knew that my loss would be, but still, I used to help people. This quality not only motivated me but increased my confidence also. All teachers and students liked me.

How you lost it?
As a child, I did not know how to judge a person. Some of my class always took advantage of this quality, but at that time I did not know about this. As I grew older, I came to know about this thing.

How do you feel about it?
when I came to know that people have taken help from me for their purpose, I used to feel very bad. Over time, I had made myself so strong and capable that I can test/ understand people. Even today, I am a selfless person, but I help those who have a clean heart. Unfortunately, in today’s mean world, clean hearted people are rarely found.

I feel happy when I help needy people, but most of the time, I refuse to help people because I know their work may harm others.

Conclusion:
So this is the quality that I had in my childhood but changed now.
