Why there is gap of one year in your work experience?

It is ok to have gap in your work experience. Do not get on defensive to hide the gap. Be confident while answering this question. Your answer should not be that I did not find job for one year. Rather you can turn this gap into an opportunity to showcase your attitude towards spending time to learn things.

Sample answer is:
I have worked for 3 years in Software industry. I have family emergency for which I have to spend time to take care of my family matters. Due to which I took time off from work for 6 months. Though I was not working during this time, I utilized this time to grow my knowledge. I attended online courses on Cloud Computing to learn the new technologies in this area.
