Hi Simon,

6. contained, global
7. source

PS. Johnny:

"didly (point) squat" is a slang expression (mainly American I think) meaning "nothing". It's good to know what it means, but I don't recommend using this expression for IELTS.

"All the king's horses and all the king's men" comes from a children's nursery rhyme. I definitely DON'T recommend using this kind of sentence (or the others you mentioned) for IELTS.

Good work!

Simon
