Sample Answer of Talk About a Law on Environmental Protection
So, the law that I am aware of, I have very limited knowledge on environmental law and regulations that have to do with environmental science and preserving nature. But the one law that I am aware of is the recent law that has been passed in my home country where hunting of endangered species, like the snow tiger, the snow leopard, I believe, has been prohibited because of its diminishing population.
I first learned about it when I visited the northern area of my country, and I went on an internship for six weeks up in the mountains. So, this is the natural habitat for the snow leopard where I first came to learn about the snow leopard itself and then I came to know about all the laws and regulations enforced to protect its population since it was a very popular sport to hunt these snow leopards.
They were considered as a big trophy if you managed to hunt one. I feel very happy and delighted that such an initiative has been taken in my country, where there are already so many problems that protecting an endangered species would be at the very bottom of the list of concerns. But I'm very glad that they did take this into account and action has been taken to protect it.

Answer:- Yes, I very much think that it is acceptable by the people. The local people living up in the northern areas are delighted about this law.
Question 2:- Is there any situation wherein people may disobey the law?
Answer:- Yes, of course. In a country where the regulations are not very strict, and there are always loopholes to the laws, there are always chances that the law will be disobeyed. There will be a backdoor through which people will be going hunting. Money speaks, and it's a very powerful thing, so you could always pay your way to getting permission to go hunting for the snow leopards.
Question 3:- Do people like being a forest officer in your country?
Answer:- I am not sure. I haven't really met any forest officers in my country to have a firsthand account of whether they enjoy it or not. But I'm assuming since the nature in our country is beautiful and breathtaking, that they would enjoy it.
Question 4:- What qualities should a forest officer process?
Answer:- Um, that's a good question. Assertiveness, first of all, so they can be a dominating personality and be able to direct people to obey the law. But more than that, they should have an appreciation for nature and animals and flora and fauna.
Question 5:- Why do some people prefer to be a lawyer?
Answer:- Being a lawyer is a very respectable profession. It brings in a lot of money. It pays well. Its regarded as a very intellectual profession, so a lot of people are intrigued because of those reasons.
Question 6:- Should people be penalized when they throw plastic bottles in the hill stations?
Answer:- Yes, absolutely, they should be penalized. Littering is a major problem, especially in untouched lands and natural landscapes. When humans go there, they leave their footprints through littering: plastic bottles, plastic bags, paper trash, trash of all kinds. And it absolutely boils my blood. Even the locals residing in these places are very, very dissatisfied with the actions that have been taken and the facilities provided to counter this. So, I think a penalty is a very good method to control these actions.
Question 7:- Do you think both men and women can be forest officers?
Answer:- Yes, of course. I think both men and women can be forest officers. In this day and age, I don't think there is any profession that could be not achievable by a woman. I mean, being a woman or a female is not a limiting factor, and we can achieve anything that men can do for sure.
