Model Answer 1:
There are many different types of people around us. While some of them are just simple and laidback type, the others like to try different kinds of things just for the fun of it. My friend, Rabid Hassan, is one such person who likes to try such things that other people wouldn’t exactly try under any normal circumstances.

Let’s start with his “fish catching” activities. Well, how many people have you met who has a “weird” habit of catching fish in a lake by drowning himself into its water for more than a minute? Well, I bet that the answer would be “not too many”. Well, when it comes to Rabid Hassan, who I have known from my early high school days, he exactly does that in order to catch fish from the mud underneath the water of a lake only to find out, of course, that he has caught some big frogs or a big fat snake. Pretty scary, isn’t it?

Well, it may be scary for “normal” people like us, but for an adventurous Rabid, it is just a fun thing to do. Of course, some people may find nothing so adventurous about catching a snake by mistake in a lake, but, I don’t think that they will say the same thing when they know that a person likes to ride his motorbike sometime on an uneven road at a speed which is close almost 100 kilometres per hour. By the way, I am talking about an uneven road where a regular person like me wouldn’t dare to ride his motorbike at a speed which is more than 50 kilometres per hour.

Anyway, based on some of these activities, mentioned above, I think Rabid certainly is one of those persons who like adventures. Besides, I have seen him watching all kinds of TV shows on travel and adventures a lot of times. Finally, his intense desire to go to places, where nobody would dare to go, certainly makes him one of the adventurous persons around me that I can think of.


Sample Answer 2:
My younger uncle in my view and experience is the most adventurous person I've ever seen and met. He is my father's younger brother and is around 35-36 years old. I know him from my childhood as he is my uncle and visits us often. I have always known him as a mysterious man who loves adventure and love to explore new things and places.

From my childhood till now I've heard lots of stories about him and many of them are so exciting and adventurous that they can be easily converted to stories or movies. I often found my uncle disappears from home and then nobody knows where he has gone. All of a sudden he comes back and disappears again. I heard he only lets my grandpa know about his departure and his next exploration. He does not lead a conventional social life and still unmarried. He loves to read and visit different places. All the stories I heard about him from others and some of them from him seem very interesting and new to me.

Once he disappeared and came back with the story that he has found a place where ghosts can be found. Then again he came back with long-bearded and we learned that he lived in a forest with people for about 2 weeks. He knows a lot about people and the customs of our country. To me, the most adventurous thing I know he did is the time when he went to Nepal to reach the top of Mount Everest. There are so many other stories that I heard about him like killing a giant snake, swimming in a big river to rescue a victim, Egypt and many other places. Everything he does is a mystery to me and I have never met anyone more brave and adventurous than he is.
