Hi Simon,

I have learned your lessons for a couple of months, and your blog really is helpful.

Here are my answers:
1, No (Most of the choices ... habits)
2, Not given (Whether we save or spend ...enormous impacts on financial security, so we can not answer Yes or No)
3, Yes (More than 40 percent ... habits.)

Thank you

My answers are below:
1. No (Most of the choices...but they’re not. They are Habits)
2. NG (Impacts not only financial security other areas also.)
3. Yes (Found that more than 40 percent)

I thought third one is NO but after i have read the question many times, i found the word AT LEAST. So, need to read questions carefully.

3.YES

Dear Simon,
Could you explain why the third answer should be yes,instead of no. I understand it exactly, with the meaning 'at least', as it was described by Zakir.
Thank you,
Aleksandra

Hi Aleksandra,

I see what you both mean, but the general meaning is the same - sometimes if you look too closely and find a 'technical' (very small grammatical) difference, you end up with the wrong answer.

1.No
2.Not Given
3.Yes

Dear Simon,

Thank you very much for your answer. I am not very happy with that from a mathematical point of view and I've always thought that we must be as accurate as possible, but your reasoning of course is understandable for me.

Thank you for all your efforts you are doing for us.

Aleksandra

Hi Sara

Your answers are correct but the way you transfer your answers is wrong.
corret answers for questions 1 and 3 are No, Yes not False ang Ture.

so read the instruction carefully

Hi Aleksandra,

I've adjusted the passage to "40 percent or more" in recognition of your point!

My ans is 3

NO

YES

Yes

My answers are further up this page. Look for "CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON".

Hi Simon,

My question is about T/F/NG. could u explain me why the following statement is "NO".

* a driver's license is the preferred form of personal identification.

in passage:
it must be completed and posted to the child welfare department together with a copy of your driver's license and application fee. for those without a driver's license, alternative forms of personal identification are just as acceptable and listed in schedule B of this document.

According to me, "it is true"
please explain it.

thanks in advance

Anu


Hi Anu,

"alternative forms of personal identification are just as acceptable" = other forms of ID are equally as good as a driver's license. Therefore, it is not true that a driver's license is preferred.

Hi Simon,

thank you very much for your answer.

Anu

1.No
2.Not Given
3.Yes

NO
NOT GIVEN
YES

1. No = It contradicts the statement from the text..."Most of the choices we make each day may feel like the products of well-considered decision making, but they’re not." It means that they (most of the choices we make) are not conscious( well-considered) decisions.
2. Not Given = There is no information about "saving money".
3. Yes = The statement agrees to the statement from the text. "....40 percent or more of the actions people performed each day weren’t actual decisions, but habits."

Hi Simon!
Could you please let me know whether Y/N/NG are the right format instead of full spell.
Thanks
Aftab
