I don’t understand what this means. can anyone explain exactly what it means and how I can start my answer?
At the weekend at a cyber cafe you met some friends to spend some time together. You chatted about many issues and Leadership and the question of “Who would be a good leader?” was brought up. Each of you had a different opinion about it. Express the opinions toward this topic in FOUR different ways.
The question is awkwardly worded throughout, and does not sound as if it was written by a native speaker. I can only imagine that it’s asking you to imagine four different answers to the question “Who would be a good leader?”
No. As Dozy has said, the question is awkwardly worded. It is an unsteady mix of tenses. If asked to imagine this scenario in an exam, I’d expect something like this from a native speaker.
At the weekend you arrange to meet some friends at a cyber cafe to spend some time together. You chat about many issues, including leadership, and the question of “Who would be a good leader?” is brought up. Each of you has a different opinion about it.
Express the opinions toward this topic from FOUR different points of view.
Apart from the comments already mentioned about the woolly nature of the wording, I would also add that ‘opinions toward this topic’ is also a no-no for me. Surely it has to be ‘opinions about this topic’ at the very least.
I thought it was looking for answers like “Self-confident people make good leaders because…”, or perhaps “X would be a good leader because…”, where X is a well-known person (presumably not already a leader). However, I do not think the question is very clearly worded.
