where is the correct answers?

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

A = 2
(increase in work-related stress = stress related claims by employees has doubled)

B = 4

(This paragraph is about the effects/symptoms of stress, NOT the causes)

Hi Hussain,

Graphs usually show years in the past, so you will probably have to use the past tense. If there are no years on the graph, just put verbs in the present simple e.g. "the number of... increases" or "the number of... is".

hi Simon

i've a question. what's the best solution to decrease mistakes in 'True, False, Not Given' questions? 50% of my mistakes are from that part in Reading section. i need min 7.0 band and i have a few days till exam.

i've read all your sections excluding Speaking here, all pages but i couldnt find a definite solution for that problem.

could you please tell me what's the best way to make less mistakes on T,F,NG part of Reading section?

thanks for all your help

(sorry for posting it on IELTS Listening)

Hi zeki,
we actually have the same problem in regards with T, f, NG type of questions... i think everybody does!

here's a link that will probably provide you a help with that..

im not pretty sure if it will work out for you... but who knows...

hi Martini, thank you

but it sounded a bit strange to me, could you please look at first one on that site?

***
1. If article sentence is repeated as a question directly (sentence in the article changed to question in the question section)

Ø NOT GIVEN

Example: In the paragraph there is this sentence,

Children are particularly at risk as the thick hollow stems and broad fan-like leaves lend themselves to a variety of games.

In Question there is sentence,

Are children particularly at risk as the thick hollow stems and broad fan-like leaves lent themselves to a variety of games?

Ø (Note: If you think its TRUE for a moment, do not even think about it; most of the students get it wrong. Most of the times these kinds of Paraphrase questions will be asked in IELTS to trap students. Remember when you see this type it is Not Given!)
***

why should it be NG? if a part from article is repeated in the question like that, isnt it True?

and sorry, i have one more question.

does it matter if article says a kind of possibility like 'may be', but question is about 'definitely', or 'is'? for example:

* 'There MAY BEe little room...' (article)
* 'There IS little room...' (question)


i mean one of them is possibility another one is certainty. is it False?

thanks a lot..

Dear Simon,
My answer is:
A-2
B_4

hi Zeki
Thank you for asking those questions because it is really tricky for almost all students included me. I think it is a big problem that inhibit students reach scores if they cannot rationalise those questions. But I am still trapped in it without solution!!!!
Thanks Martini for your share.
