Sample answer:
I would rather work in an office with colleagues than work at home alone. I enjoy
working as part of a team and exchanging ideas with others. Also, I think working at
home alone would feel rather lonely.

Sample answer:
The most offensive ad I’ve seen was a cigarette ad from the 1960s that suggested
a woman has to obey her husband. Ads like that don’t exist anymore, as far as I
know. I don’t think that the government should censor advertising, but I do think that
the industry has a responsibility to regulate itself.
