Sample Answer:
The invention of the automobile was one of the greatest inventions in the world. This invention has helped change the society and enhance people's lifestyle to a great extent. In fact, without the support of automobile, this is impossible to move in. The mass production of the automobile was a great gift to the humankind. This is a great cue card topic for me and I will explain this invention in brief.

The very first automobile was founded in 1886. A German named Karl Benz materialized the idea. Later the commercialization of automobile was done in the early part of 20th century. Before this period, it was a luxury mode of transportation for the higher class of the society. With the initiatives of Henry Ford, the automobile became a standard mode of transportation for all types of people and based on the idea, some other industries also grew up rapidly.

Since the invention, the automobile has been playing an important role for all classes of people. Distance is no longer a barrier for people now. They can move from one place to another within a short time. Earlier, before the invention of the automobile, people had to travel on feet and it took a long time to reach their destinations. But with the help of automobile, they can now reach in their intended places smoothly and accomplish their respective tasks safely. At present, automobiles have become cheaper and they are manufactured in various countries of the world.

This is also useful to me. I frequently use it, particularly the public transports to move into different parts of the city. In fact, if there is a shortage of vehicles on the streets, the commoners are to suffer a lot. I also had some bitter experiences regarding this issue. So, it is of great benefit to me.
