This action verb will usually accompany another (eg. “describe” which requires a written explanation as indicated above). Providing that sketches can be understood by the examiner, they may be done “freehand”.
Eg. Using a sketch, explain the fire triangle
- Sample Answer:
- DRAW SKETCH HERE
The fire triangle is a simple model which explains how fires start and how they might be extinguished. The figure of a triangle above is representative of “a fire” and indicates that before a fire can exist, oxygen, heat and fuel must come into contact with each other. To extinguish the fire only one of the triangle’s sides needs to be removed causing the “fire” to collapse. Oxygen can be removed by “smothering” the fire, whilst heat can be removed by “cooling”. Fuel can be removed by “starving” the fire.
