Sample Answer of Talk About a Time You Made a Promise to Someone
Some time ago, I promised to get a gift for a niece of mine for her sixteenth birthday because she performed excellently in her academics that year and has always wanted a computer for learning, so I decided to gift her this. Unfortunately, when the time approached, I was so broke that I couldn’t afford to buy anything, but I know how important this computer is to her and how she has been waiting for the birthday to get the gift; hence, I had to make my own Laptop for swapping, that is, the Laptop will be replaced with a new one, and then I will add a token to it. It was never an easy thing for me, but I had to do what I had to do because I knew the promise was a debt.
