Sample Answer 1:
Nowadays, it can be observed that a number groups or organisations are proliferating in society. These are mainly classified into public and private groups. I will through light on the importance of these groups in the following paragraphs.
Public groups or associations engage in solving problems in society or in a community. Let us take the case of Lions club of our community, it is a public group which takes care of about general issues related to water supply, roads and security of our locality. The members of this group are senior citizens, retired people from work and they are volunteers. Last year this club had done an excellent job in protecting our locality from chemical pollution by blocking the establishment of chemical industry near to our residential area. This club collected votes from the people against the company establishment and addressed the government to abolish the permission. Such groups are important for society improvement. Next, there are private groups which are formed only for member’s benefits.
Private groups belong to a sector or domain. To illustrate such as, I am a member of TIBCO technology group, this is formed by people who work on TIBCO software. There 400 members in this group from various organisations, we share knowledge related to our technology, job openings in our technology and we provide job reference to group members. This kind of private clubs helps the members to grow officially.
In summary, people are realising the importance of associations and we can expect a myriad of them in future.

Sample Answer 2:
Man, through the ages, has undergone many changes from the time when he lived in the caves to nowadays when he lives in a comfortable apartment. But one thing that remains the same is that people always lived in groups and organisations such as families, the smallest group, and tribes, the bigger group. I think that the reason why people live in groups is because we need communication and what is more important we need support to survive. So, from old times to nowadays people merged in groups because it made them stronger and helped to overcome many obstacles and difficulties. In the following paragraphs, I will give my reasons and examples to support my answer.
First of all, people need to communicate with each other. We need to share out ideas and thoughts with each other. I think it is very important to know that someone thinks the same way one does and supports one. In addition, communication is one of the features of reasonable animals. All animals that can communicate with each other live in herds and support each other when one of them is in need.
The second reason, why I think groups and organisation are important to people is because they make us stronger. For example, football team plays better than one player. Another example is the ancient hunters. At old times people gathered in order to get food and survive in severe conditions. It was impossible for one man to kill a big animal, but when people gathered in groups their chances increased. Scientists say that people survived because they lived together and supported each other.
For the reasons, which I mentioned above, I believe groups and organisations play an essential role in our life. Moreover, people’s evolution would not be possible without them.
