Q. Which is more necessary for a job? Experience or education?
A. I think both are necessary. To apply for a job, a good educational background is required nowadays.

Part Three - Details Discussion:
Q. What type of qualities you prefer to make friends?
A. The two most important qualities that I always prefer are positive mentality and honesty among friends. If someone has these two qualities, I will become his/her friend easily. Apart from that, I look the way s/he makes a conversation, criticise others and behave with others. Finally, I would also look for common interest as I believe having common interests and similar views make the friendship stronger.
Q. Do you have many friends? How much time do you spend with friends?
A. I used to have quite a large number of friends during my college years. Nowadays I have comparatively fewer friends, but they are very close to me. I have around 3-4 close friends and many other good friends whom I really like to discuss, talk and spend time with.
As I have got busy these days, I spend around 5-6 hours with my friends weekly. Sometimes, it varies from 3 to 10 hours on an average.
