But before we proceed you must know what is an advertisement? 

An advertisement is an announcement made in public to promote/publicize a product or service/ vacancy or job.

Students are asked to write advertisements in section D or Khand Gha (खण्ड घ) in Hindi in more than 25-50 words. The question carries 5 marks.

While anyone can write an advertisement, but it takes skills to engage the audience through a compelling piece.

There are a variety of advertisements, depending upon their types and the industry. However, the advertisements are broadly classified into two:

  1. Classified

  2. Commercial

Classified ads are the ones that are issued by the masses to promote services. The main aim is to arrest the attention of the public with the use of minimum words. The classified advertisements generally cover ‘to let’ and ‘for sale,’ they also cover job vacancies, accommodation, lost and found, packers and movers, pet shops and kennels, and topics related to education, coachings, and matrimonial alliances, etc.

Commercial advertisements on the other hand are the ones that are issued by manufacturers, brands, organizations, etc. Their main aim is to sell their products and services. These advertisements are costlier than classified ads as they occupy more space, money, and time. These ads are made in a way they are visually attractive and are followed by catchy taglines.

  • Make a small box on your answer sheet using a scale to ensure the lines are neat and straight.
