Describe a person you know who gave a clever solution to a problem.

You should say:

  • who that person is
  • what the problem was
  • what solution s/he gave

and explain why you think it was a clever solution.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]

Sample Answer:
It was Mr Simpson who gave me a smart solution to a problem I was in. In fact, without his help, I would not have been able to get rid of the predicament. With his extraordinary intelligence, he helped me out and I am grateful to him. This is a very smart candidate task card and I am honoured to have it in my share. I will answer it in brief now.

I was having trouble with my cell phone charging back up time. It was a trouble for me and I could not get the right power backup as I was supposed to get. Battery draining was a very common issue with this phone set. So, I had to remain worried about my mobile phone charging issue. I barely used the phone lest the charge is lost. But Mr Simpson advised me to follow some charge cycles and also asked me to change the phone charger. I never thought of the issue. And to my surprise, it worked very well.

Mr Simpson is my neighbour and works as an IT expert at a local company. I have a good relationship with him and share my issues to get his valuable suggestions. Being an Android user, it is really hard when you have a phone and you cannot use it. I was experiencing the matter and I shared the fact with him to get some solutions. He asked me to change the charging adapter and also to install an application to complete charging cycle.

It was a clever solution indeed. In fact, I was planning to change my phone set. If I would not get the solution, I would have changed the phone within a couple of days. But following the instructions, I was able to get back a better battery backup.
